Another post reminded me of this. I know that a number of our members are parents of graduating seniors. And I want to give a reminder of something that may not have come up. As part of our Senior Seminar at the end of the year, each of our kids is given a blank Health Care Proxy. Basically, it's a legal document giving permission for another person to make medical choices in the event that the patient is unable to do so for himself. As hard as it is to belive, those graduating seniors are, or will soon be, 18 years old. As a result, mom and dad can no longer make those medical decisions without a proxy. God willing, it will never be necessary. But it's an important rite of passage. I have one-- I filled it out before my mastectomy, and it names Peter as the person who can make decisions for me. It's in the file cabinet, with the wills and all the other important papers. Peter has one too, he filled it out before eye surgery. And when each of our kids turns 18, they'll have one too.
