“Being Mortal”

"Being Mortal"

My husband and I just finished reading Atul Gawande’s Bestseller “Being Mortal”. What an eye opener this book was. It gave us the opportunity to discuss our own end. We have buried two of our daughters and were blessed to have had Hospice to guide us down the difficult path. Yet, had we really discussed our own wishes? We were not terminally ill. Quite the contrary…we are still aging nicely. One day at a time with normal routines, activities and work. What would we be willing to endure and what would we not be willing to endure for the possibility of more time? This marvelously written book allows one to delve into the many questions that each of us are afraid to ask and afraid to discuss. When that time comes, what do we really want…What do our parents ,loved ones and patients want? Home, Hospital, Surgery, Skilled Nursing Home, Assisted Living or Hospice? Truly a “Must Read”, I highly recommend this book. It is well written and once you start it, you won’t want to put it down.
