It's a rough thing to talk about, but making them while there is "no pressure" now is a lot easier then making it at 3am when things are going down hill. Also make sure the whole family is on board. I've heard of many stories where families are legit fighting over whats best for their family member. One wants to left the member go, the other wants to keep them alive.... It gets very messy.
i have alreeady been thinking about all of this...also...its just me my mom and my sister...thats all..and my sister is not talking to me...she is mad at me that I will not move to where my mom is to take care of her....my sister is..shes giving up her career and moving from ohio to anaheim to do it...but she's holding it against me that I can't...so...i have no other family to turn to at this point...
