Too early

A man told me that at his age he and his friends talk about these end of life questions, but “It is too early to make any decisions.”

Well, not really. Now is the time to figure out personally, What do you want to do before you die?

And medically, How do you want to live the last paragraph of the last chapter of your life: hooked to bleeping machines, or in your home, or at your cabin in the woods? Do you want to be alert, or in la la land, or alert with pain at a bearable level? Do you want the last person you see be a doctor or nurse or your spouse or child or pet? These kinds of decisions then are the key ones.

These decisions will help people who love you make the specific choices when time for reflection is short.
