Dr. Van Scoy has written a wonderful book. She has tackled a topic that makes many of us uncomfortable. However, we are all likely to be thrust into a similar dilemma at some point in our lives either personally or with a loved one. She gives hope and advice to us, that we can "do the right thing". As a fellow physician, I admire her courage in addressing this issue and her compassion and insight into how to come to a decision that we can "live with".
