If the News Press article today gave the impression that I am accepting premature inevitable death, well, that is simply not true. The author called me this afternoon and was also upset with the tone of the headline and the "feel" of the story. Some important things and people were left out and or dramatized, which I suppose is an editors prerogative. I don’t remember giving the author the impression I was going to lose this battle anytime soon.
And to clarify something else. I did not administer a lethal dose of morphine to my mother. My brother and I carefully followed her hospice nurse’s directions when giving her the drug for comfort during her last days. He stepped out to get pizza for the family when she decided to take her last breath, and I was fortunate to be with her alone in the room.
I guess I can’t get too upset about something I can’t change, it’s just not worth it.
I do find that a rolled up newspaper makes great kindling for my backyard fire pit.
