Another tragic story just lingers on

The story of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston, continues as she is moved to a rehabilitation facility, still in a coma.  Is there hope?  Newsmax writer Charlotte Libov, who is following this story, discussed the situation with me, and shared the information in the article:

If there is a lesson that can be learned from this tragic sequence of events, it is that we all need to have Advance Directives, including the appointment of a Health Care Agent, also known as durable power of attorney for health care, and Health Care Instructions, also called a living will.  These documents do not deal with your money or property, like a regular will, but with decisions about your health care in the event you cannot direct the care yourself, as with Bobbi Kristina.  Here in Maryland, the Maryland Attorney General has forms that can be downloaded and completed on their website.  Likely other states and jurisdictions have similar information available.  I know that this is not a topic that we like thinking about, but it is important, and everyone should have those documents, call them a form of insurance, just as we have other insurance policies for unforeseen events.
