Recent events in the national news combined with good Friday had me wondering, are you all ready to die? If you were to drop tonight are all your ducks in a row? Or more importantly if you lived but were in a helpless bedridden state, unable to talk or do anything for yourself with no hope of recovery. Do the right people know your wishes and are the proper forms filled out? I hope if I were in such a state my loved ones would put me out of my misery. But I would also hope they wouldn't starve me to death to do it. Should be a wake up call for us all. Make your wishes clear!

Yup -- All ready. I've got a Will and a written "Living Will" that says "No extraordinary means" of life support.

I'm set to go...not looking forward to it any time soon, but prepared just in case. The thing that kills me (no pun intended) is that our animals have it better than we do. We can euthanize them. (although it is said that starvation is not painful and actually rather euphoric?)

If i came back as a lab, i'd want to belong to some nice family that would let me sleep on the bed and throw tennis balls for me in the back yard.

Either that..... or as a big time stud dog.

Odd that I see this right now. I just downloaded some of the templates for the Living Will and for my Last will and testament. Have put it off for years, but I don't want my family to fight over me if I'm ever in a situation like Terry Schiavo, I want them all to know (including attorneys) what my wishes are.

I agree that I am ready to go, but I also have a Will and a Living Will properly executed so that my family will not have to go through what Terry Schiavo's family is not facing.

Nope. Not ready yet. Guess I can't go.....

On a serious note, one of my employee's passed away in his chair this week at work. Despite all our efforts and the paramedics efforts we couldn't bring him back. Late 30's, apparent perfect health and one massive heart attack and he was gone. Left a wife and 2 kids, 10 and 12. I've spent the week with employee's in my office trying to handle it. Sure makes you stop and think seriously for minute. May I go quietly in a duck blind with the birds flying and lab keeping me company...
