It’s worth pausing to recall that we have yet to make even one person immortal. Instead, we have made dying a lot harder than it has to be. In the course of a progressive illness, there almost always comes a point when more treatment is not better care.
A worthwhile quote but also a personal reminder to dig deeper on this issue. My wife, a physician, deals with these issues daily. I’d like to find a way to contribute to a more sane discussion of end of life care.
