The idea to write down what “quality of life” looks like for you is an excellent one and something we hadn’t done yet. Thanks.

Very informative! Need to have a conversation with loved ones and have an Advance Care Directive in place to assure what you want and what you don’t want happens. Gives family members a sense of relief!
