Choices and Reality




Pretending to Dance by Diane Chamberlain


George wrote about his choice to not continue living with a fast progressing and debilitating case of MS.  Each person must make their own decision as to how to live or die.

Must read novel that I discovered recently.  Hard to read because of George's experiences, but really presents his case and others in clear, logical language.  Wonderful story of a family and dealing with a beloved father with MS.  Viewpoint from the 14 year old daughter and later as an adult.  Lots of issues delved into. Not necessarily a "feel good" story, but much of the reality of family dynamics in having a loved one with deterioration from MS.

Because it touched me deeply, I must recommend it to all who wonder "what if"?

Dearest George,

My best guess is that you cannot receive this message, but here goes anyway.

Four years tomorrow that you died.  People are still reading your blog, so your thoughts and words never die.

You were a man of real courage and I will write my tribute to you on my blog.

Miss you always....and love you forever.

Mom
