Mother-of-two Lisa Leskie long ago made plans for the end. Lisa, who suffers from a congenital heart disease has discussed openly, “the end,” with her loved ones.
I decided I needed that confidence in the doctors from the advance care plan. I know what I want to do. I couldn’t put the burden on my husband or on anybody else to turn life-support off. And I want them to remember me the way I am. I don’t want life-prolonging treatment at all – and if it has been commenced, I have requested that it be discontinued. It’s done. I’ve done it. And there’ll be no arguments with anybody. I’ve made the choices.
