for the last 8 years i've dealt with this subject each and every working day. even more, in the position that i'm in as a respiratory therapist i'm the actual person that physically takes someone off the life support machine (ventilator).
its a subject that really, REALLY does not get talked about enough.
we will all lose loved ones. its just reality. i hope that when the time comes we all make the right decisions that benefit them, and not ourselves.
