When the end is near, an updatePosted Monday, October 10, 2011, at 7:20 PM
At the moment, I am most likely the angriest person on this blog site. Some person at the assisted living facility she is living in decided to ignore the fact that she is a hospice patient. They called the paramedics who then decided to transport her despite being told that she is a hospice patient. I don't know if they did it out of stupidity, or that they knew better than her, myself and the hospice nurse. If it wasn't due to stupidity, JUST WHO DO THEY THINK THEY ARE!!!! THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO OVERRIDE HER WISHES AS TO WHEN AND WHERE SHE WANTS TO DIE!!!! IF THIS WAS DONE OUT OF SOME RELIGIOUS DOGMA, I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL SUE EVERYONE INVOLVED INTO NEXT YEAR. EVERY LIVING HUMAN BEING HAS THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WHEN AND WHERE THEY WISH TO DIE!!!!
Her time is very near now, I know this. I accept this. Yes, there will be some tears, but the pain will be over, and she will have had the right to choose death with dignity. This an example of why I can't stand the so called religious conservatives. Those who feel they have the moral authority to override a persons wishes. If this offends some of you, so be it! You will get no apology from me!

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
