...I can make medical decisions for him if needed based on his wishes and
his priorities in this wonderful life that we live.
- Moira .
My husband and I are in our sixties.We are retired and have a very active
life style. He rides a road bike about 100 miles per week. Each time he
leaves on a bike ride, I kiss him, tell him that I love him, be safe,
and have fun. I am always grateful when he comes home safe and sound.
If by chance he gets hit by a car or falls off his bike and sustains a
serious injury, I will be making medical decisions for him if he is not
able to. We have a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care in place
and we periodically discuss what is important to us if either of us is
seriously injured or ill. I have no guarantee that he won't be injured,
however, I do know that I can make medical decisions for him if needed
based on his wishes and his priorities in this wonderful life that we live.
