I just wanted to share a link that has some great info re: Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (which is different from an Advanced Directive)

If you are unsure about what you want re: CPR, Tube Feeding, Breathing Machine, Artificial Hydration, check these out.

Maybe you think you are sure, but it's good to revisit the subject from time to time as things can happen quickly to make you question your original decisions.

They are simple, straight forward documents that are easy to understand and present typical situations where these types of medical interventions are used and can be used to help you make decisions.

The "California Decision Guides" on Artificial Breathing, Tube Feeding, CPR are excellent resources.
