Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Recently, I had a conversation with a work colleague. She was angry. Her mom had had a severe stroke, and she and her sister were at odds with how to handle the mother’s condition. The situation was a mess, and even involved screaming conflicting orders at the 911 first responders. The irony was that their mother had a healthcare directive in place and had named one of the sisters to be her healthcare agent. Had the two sisters read Deborah Day Laxson’s The Gray Zone, this drama might have been minimized. They would have both understood that the patient, their mother, had already spoken clearly in her healthcare directive. It was a matter of grasping the importance of their specific role in the mother’s care with both sisters ultimately honoring and supporting their mother's wishes regardless of their own personal opinions. I strongly recommend that everyone read The Gray Zone. Every family, in some way, walks through the journey of fulfilling a person’s wishes regarding the quality of life, with emphasis on the goal of honoring the person’s wishes, should medical decisions need to be made on that person’s behalf. This book starts that conversation. In cogent, easy-to-read prose, Laxson makes the case clear, before the lonely gray zone sets in. Chris, Canton, Michigan
