Or Durable Power of Attorney? It is something to think about. Who will make the decisions for you regarding your health care should you be unable to do so, i.e., comatose, etc.?

I do not want life support. I do want Comfort Measures, Nutrition, and Fluids so I will not be in pain and because my body needs nutrition and fluids in order to sustain life. If my organs fail, I do not want any heroic or extraordinary measures to save my life; I will go home to be with the Lord if I cannot survive without mechanical means. This will alleviate thousands of dollars of medical bills and will not prolong my life unnecessarily by artificial means. I am donating my organs. I took my typed up Living Will to my Bank and had my signature witnessed and notarized. It is now a legal document to be included in my Medical Records. Above all, my relatives know my wishes and will not be burdened with a decision of whether or not to "pull the plug." I know of one recent case of a pastor who was trying to provide counsel for a mother whose 25-year-old son was on life support (after being severely burned and lying in a coma on a respirator) and was having to deal with this issue, what to do, guilt surrounding any decision, as well as grief. Just thought I'd pass the info along in case anyone is interested. Not trying to be morbid, just practical.
