This morning I went to the J.O.Y. fellowship luncheon at my church. I played Mexican Train with a different group this time. Boy! What a difference that was. Their rules of the game were totally different from the ones we use in my Cen-Tex camping club.
Our speaker today was Tim Sherman, a chaplain at Seton’s Brackenridge Hospital. He talked about the importance of having a Medical Power of Attorney and an Advance Directive to Physicians and Family -- and not just for older people. He gave us handouts explaining them and some forms. He referred us to the Web page of Caring Connections where there is a wealth of information and forms for every state in the Union.
