Ms. S. E. "Gargy's" Thoughts

11/7/05 – 11/11/05

I have to agree with Ethan.  I do not want to be kept alive by artificial means. I don't want a machine beating my heart and breathing for me.  I, also, don't want to dehydrate so I do want an IV keeping me hydrated. 

However, no feeding tubes.  I don't want to be another Terry Schavo, that poor woman.  I know my folks wouldn't keep me alive and some sick hope of my miraculous recovery.  And, as soon as me and my "wife" Wolfy can........I am going to get us Power of Attorney for the both of us.  We as lesbians can't marry but we can sign POAs for each other.

To die with dignity is anyone’s' right.  I know that there are laws that prosecute people who put people out of their miseries, but I don't see the problem with granting someone's dying wish.  They are in pain and they are suffering, they won't ever recover, and they are begging to be let go. 

I, also, understand it's hard to let the people we love go.  My grandma knew my grandpa wanted to not be kept alive by artificial means, but she just couldn't let him go.  Eventually, he was able to leave all the pain and suffering behind and we buried him.  I had a hard time taking my beloved Dandy in to be put down, he was such a good/loyal friend-never had to be trained and the most handsomest Sheltie ever, but he was suffering and we was old.  My brother who kept him alive for another six weeks, because he couldn't bare to say good-bye, would smack him with a rolled up newspaper because he was whining-which he could not help.  I tried to get him to overdose on cherry Nyquil, but the dog was too smart and would only ingest enough to rest for a few hours.

I know it's hard to say good-bye, Theresa, but if you love Ethan, really love him?  You will do what's best for him.
