A few years after I quit the meetings my Mum needed her Medical Directive signed and witnessed and she asked if I'd do it. I was surprised to say the least!
I think she was just angling to include me and maybe find some lever to get me involved again. I told her that even though I didn't agree with the policy I'd respect her wishes because I knew how important it was to her. I wasn't calling her bluff, I meant it.
She thought it over for a few days but went with my Elder brother in law instead, I wasn't as upset as you might think.
Fast forward a dozen or so years and now I'm not sure I could back that policy at all. If my signature was required to authorise a blood transfusion for my 71 year old JW Mother I'd sign.
She'd live to resent me, to shun me, but she'd live. What else could I do?
