Engage with Grace Blog Rally

The Engage with Grace blog rally has spread far and wide, for the second year. Here is a list of participants that I have seen so far. I'll keep adding. If I missed you, please submit a comment with the name and url, and I will update this posting.

In case you wonder why we do this, see this post on my blog below:

Last year I had a discussion with my loved one because of the blog rally and unfortunately it actually came into play in Sept. when she was diagnosed with end stage pancreatic cancer. Something that we did not anticipate but really must be brought to light, especially with elderly couples; often the primary advocate is so distraught at the probability of losing their 47+ year partner, emotions cloud key judgement. We experienced battles with my uncle over increasing pain meds., etc. and hospice walked such a fine line because he, as her health proxy could have asked them to leave at any time (as we were told). So in addition to having a discussion regarding these end of life questions -- elderly couples really need to think about whether their spouse will truly be able to carry out their wishes when the time comes.
