God's work...

"She's still doing God's work."  -- Family, explaining why they would not take their 98 year-old, brain-dead grandmother off the ventilator.

I can't stand those families. And the ones who say" God will take her when He's ready". Yeah like the massive stroke/heart attack,vent,dialysis,pacemaker,feeding tube,persistent vegetative state...... Weren't all signs He was trying to take her? For crying outloud look at her GCS !!!

I I usually describe myself as "persistently standing in God's way."

thankful for this post, too. it led to a conversation with mom about her wishes-- she's not "old" yet, but anything can happen at any time. i'm glad to know what she wants, and i'm glad she's looking in to a living will.
