I just wish my grandma had to take this living will and able to decide for herself. She could have survived.

Yes Daniel, this is the point we keep on ignoring in our lives as we don’t even want to discuss death… the crude reality of our life. We are still unable to accept the fact that “All the world’s a stage” and we have to go back after performing the last character. Dr. Fabiny is right in her point.

Isn’t it just so sad that fully qualified docs need a “step by step “conversation guide” to help physicians talk to their patients about the kind of care they want at the end of life” !

What does that say about a) the $$’s and time invested in their training b) how easy it is to lose basic humanistic, interactive skills!
