I just want you to know that my journey continues.
After a teensy bit of melanoma was removed last week, I’m now more inspired to live up to, e.g. practice, what I have been preaching about my goals for Third Chapter Mastery™.
Made an appointment, at my primary care doctor’s request (for that she gets a gold star), to deliver her a copy of my health care proxy, and to review, discuss and sign the now required Massachusetts Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (MOLST form). Although recommended primarily for the seriously ill, which I am not, our lives are not guaranteed. Thus it is that many others highly advocate a conversation with your doctor about your wishes for end-of-life care. Since I don’t want to end up hooked to machines…not the quality of life I desire…. I want my doctor to hear that from me.
Every little way we can acknowledge the reality of the finiteness of our existence and exercise our choices to live fully and well all the way to the end, is time well spent in my view.
