It's really hard, even after multiple trips to the ER for kidney failure, to say "This is the End." My brother didn't want to make the decision on his own, so the scene at the Chinese restaurant brought back memories. "Our scene" was in the "consult room" with a hospice person.

Mom managed an extra 10 years after the pacemaker was installed. In the end, the coumadin that helped to make the pacemaker work caused her kidney failure. There's no chance of a kidney transplant when a person is 91. Eventually one has to acknowledge the mortality of a loved one.

Whomever was responsible for the "death panel" meme ought to have to endure a prolonged death because their family won't face up to the truth.
