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!
