Congratulations on your smart choices - well smart in my warped view those are wise choices. Such choices do extend our lives, but the end still if full of issues and costs. I read some where that if the medical costs for the first and last year or two of our lives as a whole were eliminated over all costs would drop some huge amount -- I hate to say a number but the cost was well into the double digits. Imagine 15% of all healthcare associated with say 0 to 18 months and the last year and half.
