I only have a tiny bit more shopping to,need to get some Christmas cards in the mail and bake some cookies to take to the kidsand my nephew for our visit to Alberta in 2 weeks - and I am done! I only send cards to my senior Aunts and Uncles in the States as most are not on Facebook and they enjoy receiving them.
We have a friend who has cancer, she has been fighting it for the last 10 years and after one remission her cancer came back last year and she now is in hospice. Euthanasia has been legal in Canada since 2016 and after a long fruitful life she is choosing this option next week. This has been a long process as in order for it to be legal many hoops need to be jumped through then you need to find a Doctor willing to perform it as it is voluntary for them, not mandatory. We are both very sad for her and also happy that she has the legal option to go out the way she wants to. The whole thing is just so strange though, as I don't know anyone who has had anyone they care about choose this option before and knowing the date is even stranger. She has refused to see anyone other than her immediate family since July and there is to be no funeral, the family wants to celebrate her life while she is alive, not after she passes. She was a wonderful vibrant sweet woman in life and the world has been a better place for her having been in it. She will be missed. We have had other Decembers where we have lost people, had relatives in comas and had our lives in disarray, too many of them and hopefully all of them in the past. Our thoughts are with her family right now.
And on that note, life must go on for the rest of us so I've got to get this posted and get some work done today.
