In the comfort and ‘security’ of my own home, surrounded by family and friends, with physical symptoms of discomfort well managed. I want those I love to know that death is part of life, to be embraced as part of the eternal circle. As such not every medical intervention known to man need be employed – Do Not Attempt Resuscitation, no feeding tubes or intravenous fluids, not dialysis, no transfusions or antibiotics. Those medications which relieve pain, shortness of breath, nausea and anxiety are to be used without fear that they will hasten my death, even if they decrease my level of awareness. And wish me well on the next leg of my journey, celebrate my moving on!
