2.  Write your own “Meaningful Recovery” Paragraph and include it with your advance directive.

Here is mine.  Write one that works for you.

“I value a full life more than a long life. If I have lost the ability to interact with others and have no reasonable chance of regaining this ability; or if my suffering is intense and irreversible, even though I have no terminal illness, I do not want to have my life prolonged. I would not then ask to be subjected to surgery or to resuscitation procedures, to intensive care services, or to other life-prolonging measures, including the administration of antibiotics, blood products or artificial nutrition and hydration. I also believe that the financial and emotional burden on my family should be considered in making these types of decisions.”
