When you visit the Oregon Coast, you see the above sign everywhere. It's a bit unnerving... but at the same time, it's nice that there is an evacuation route. This photo makes me think about emergency plans. I think it's so important to communicate the most horrible "what ifs" and take the proper steps to get what's necessary in writing.
I recently had the discussion about "what if I were in a car accident and had no brain function", "what if there were usable organs", "what if YOU could choose the time they'd turn off the machine and who could be there", "who should have a say in all of the decisions". A bit morbid? I don't think so, really. My Dad and stepmom, as most of you know, passed away recently. And even though they were not in great health, NO plans had been made. No-one knew what their wishes were... that made it a bit harder.
So... I have some emergency plans laid out, others need to be put into writing. But I am getting there. And, I will be discussing my wishes with loved ones. Not on a constant basis, it will NOT be my focus in life. But I will let them know it's ok to talk to me about it...
Anyway... there are sooooo many subjects I could cover here... "in the event of an emergency" perhaps I will get to those later.
