My first question is Any really tasty, but easy burrito Medifast recipes? Hoping for any response. Second question.. I need to know how to go about getting a Living Will. Where do I get one? I remember when I had a cardio stent put in a couple years ago that I was asked if I had one, and I didn't, and since then it pretty much went into the back of my mind and just surfaced today. I have my Pre-Admit on Tuesday and could take care of getting one done tomorrow if it's something simple.... I just wish my brain would wake up earlier than the last minute sometimes! I could/should have done this a long time ago....

Any words of wisdom anyone can share will be greatly appreciated!.

I'll sure be doing the notebook thing, too, if I can't get this taken care of tomorrow!! :-) Glad you mentioned it it's worth a try... maybe use my glucose-test pen to prick my finger and sign it in blood? Would that make it more legit??? LOL..

Most hospitals should have one that is available. and are the typical ones that let you check off if you want CPR, intubation, tube feedings, etc. But nurses and drs caring for you aren't allowed to witness it legally. (at least in PA and I am sure it is pretty similar other states). Some hospitals will let social workers witness it. That varies from institution to institution..

Go on line there are several sites that offer free living wills that you can print out and customize to what you want then sign it and have it notarized that it is really your signature. Just google Living Wills..

You can get a real lawyer to draw one up. Not sure how pricey that would be or how quickly you could get it done..

However, check with your hospital and surgeon most hospitals will still attempt resuscitation during.

Surgery.

Even with a living will. Living wills are "suspended" during.

Surgery.

In many places as sometimes the heart arrythmias and such are a result of the.

Surgery.

And easily fixable with some meds, fluids, and electricity. And you will be intubated or have some type of advanced airway in place already for the.

Surgery.

..

Good Luck,.

Thanks for your replies I'll get on it right away this morning! I'm going in for bloodwork this morning so I'll check with the people in the hospital while I'm there. Plus I suppose I'll go ahead and look for one online and carry it with me then maybe can get it notarized right there. I'll get it all figured out yet! :-).

Have a wonderful Monday!..

Good for you!.

Laws regarding "Health Care Advance Directives" (Living Wills, Durable Power Of Attorney For Medical Decisions, Organ Donation Directives) vary from state to state. Here is a link to get you started in Florida:.

Http://tinyurl.com/florida-advance-....

Note this item specific to Florida:.

Must an attorney prepare the advance directive?.

No, the procedures are simple and do not require an attorney, though you may choose to consult one..

However, an advance directive, whether it is a written document or an oral statement, needs to be witnessed by two individuals. At least one of the witnesses cannot be a spouse or a blood relative..

Links to official info in other US states can be found here:.

Jerry's got it right. I found out that my in-laws (both in their mid 90's) didn't have one. I got the California version off the internet and had them fill them out and sign and have a neighbor witness. Later a lawyer reviewed and no changes were necessary at all. Please make sure that you do it and that you follow state law. Don't make your loved ones deal with this without your guidance.

Thanks to all for their help I'm headed to the web right now to look up that FL version. I'd have done it earlier today but my trip to the lab for bloodwork turned into a fiasco because.

Surgery.

Hadn't done their job correctly, then I had to go by Radiology to schedule a CT scan from my endocrinologist , and that turned into a second fiasco because it's being done with contrast and unless it's done before.

Surgery.

, there's no way I can drink 2 24 oz bottles of contrast prior to the CT scan... I had to explain that a little tiny pouch post-surgery just isn't going to hold anywhere near that!! Long story short, I spent the whole morning at the hospital, but did accomplish what I set out to accomplish. But I was hungry, and kept my cool while keeping my crabbiness inside, and then came the headache. So I'm home now.... trying to relax..

But again, thanks for all the advice I was sure someone here would know! :-)..
