I recently wrote to my brother in law to remind him that he should be getting their P/As for personal care in place. He wrote back:While I was watching football this weekend, my wife and I got into aconversation about life and death, and the need for living wills.During the course of the conversation I told her that I never wanted toexist in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and taking fluidsfrom a bottle.She got up, unplugged the TV, and dumped out my beer.. . . Sometimes it's tough being married to a smart ass.
Speaking of living wills, this was posted on the BBQ Fools list, and I thought it was pretty good:LIVING WILLI, __________________________, being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means. Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of pinhead politicians who couldn't pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it, or lawyers / doctors interested in simply running up the bills. If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to ask for at least one of the following:______ Cold Beer______ Glass of Wine______ Top-shelf Liquor______ BBQ Ribs______ Grilled Steak______ Pizza______ Tacos______ French Fries______ Ice Cream______ Chocolate______ TV Remote______ SexIt should be presumed that I won't ever get any better. When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes and call it a day.Signed and Witnessed this Day of Our Lord _____________ 20__Signed: __________________________Witness: __________________________Witness: __________________________Attorney: __________________________
