25. Hubby and I talked about this

We both have DNRs and medical power of attorney for each other. We both 77 and no one is dependent on us.

So, we both agreed - no ventilator, especially if there are young people with children who need it.

I thinking of "Cause of death: Republican indifference."

/on edit/

On staying alive at all costs. Sometimes the cost is too high.

Hub and I fully intend to vote in November. We both voted for Biden and looking forward to doing it again. However, ...
When you get to your high 70's, the Grim Reaper is standing in the corner, in the shadows, checking his watch. Hub has heart disease; I have COPD. It's quite possible that a ventilator may not be an option. Italy is already triaging the elderly. Further, given our medical conditions, I doubt a ventilator would do much good; just keep us alive{sic} for a few miserable days more.

In short, if we're fated to die, maybe we can make it mean something - like saving another life.
