Mom and I had our "Conversation" while sitting in the waiting room while my Father was dying. She said she wanted no unusual measures taken. She reiterated her wishes several times in the intervening years. After 17 years, her time came. Her kidneys were failing as a consequence of taking Coumadin after having a pacemaker "installed". My brother and I conferred and decided it was time. She wasn't going to get better and it was akin to torture to bring her to the E-room every two months to detox her blood w/ the attendant week or longer stay in the hospital. She passed less than four days after putting her under hospice. Most of the time was spent in a coma and she never regained consciousness, although I hope she heard me tell her I loved her and it was alright to let go.PM
