      Have you had this discussion with your husband? It really is his decision if he is able to make it.My husband knew from the beginning he did not want to be made sick or take things that would make him live just a little longer.It is a personal decison and one I hope you have talked about by now.Good luck with your decison making and may God Bless you both!
