what do you look for in a next of kin…obviously they have to love you, but maybe not too much because this is the person that may at some point be the one to give the okay to “pull the plug”. so i suppose you want someone who’s tough, a strong exterior with a soft middle. someone who will be available 24/7, someone who will make the phone calls…until they get the answers they need, someone who will look at the situation from all angles….hhhmmm, who should i pick as my next of kin….
mom too much stress for her
my sister, nancy she wouldn’t recognize me
my son,matt he would be too upset
my son, james he wouldn’t interrupt his internet time
my brother, andy he wouldn’t interrupt his internet time in between his family time
hhmmm, running out of family members…i know!!
my daughter, rose!!!! nerves of steel, stamina of a racehorse, persistance of a bill collector….
oh yeah, she already is my next of kin…go ahead sweetie….just make sure i do not spend my last days on this earth in an intensive care unit!! i’ve spent too much time there already…
that reminds me of another thought i had working this weekend..i wondered if patients ever wake up from their surgery/accident in the ICU and think they have died and gone to hell….
