Hi Lisa, I feel like I'm sucking up now, I only just read your post [ will you stop posting while I am asleep :) ]
I think both you and your Mum [Mom] were lucky to have each other and know what was right for both of you. Unfortunately, many people don't and can't cope with any form of decision that has to be made, they hold on to anything that gives them hope, even if it is false hope. Everyone should have their wishes in writing, so there can be no doubts.
I send you many cyberhugs.


Had birthday party for a 3-year-old. Drank many beers. Must sleep. Love you!


Lisa, I was gone all day... I didn't read your post until just now. Hearing your story reminds me even more how important it is to talk abou these issues. You did a brave and kind thing. I hope if I ever have to, I'll have the resolve.


Hey Sweetcheeks, give a broad a chance to read it, will you? I didn't see your entry until after you had this one up. I had checked your blog early in the day, and there wasn't anything new up, and I almost didn't check again later. Even then I only had a chance to skim real fast, as my presence was requested elsewhere. So here I am, coming back expressly to reply, so you won't think I don't love you!

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)
  • Matt Birbeck: A Beautiful Child
    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road
    A novel about the alienation arising from living in the "perfect" suburbs. Hailed as a great literary book. I thought it was okay, at best. (**)
  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
