    My Sister's Keeper succeeds in showing us not to take life for granted because it can be taken away without notice. Both she and Campbell are rushed to the hospital. She is the main protagonist of the novel. You know when you look outside at the world, and it feels like your trapped inside? That Kate dyeing would be a good ending as well.

    The very ride that was making me so severely ill. Reluctantly, Anna takes the stand and admits that she filed the lawsuit because Kate told her to. Span: First of all, almost nobody wants to move. He believes that she should have control over her own body, and eventually obtains medical power of attorney over her, when she wins her case. Plus, nursing homes are the only government safety net.

    This book was good until the last two chapters -- the whole rest of the book was engaging and thought-provoking, really making you ponder the issues at hand, and then the ending was so bad that it actually made me feel cheated, like I'd been tricked into thinking it was a good book when the ending came out of nowhere and sucked so tremendously that I wished I hadn't read the book at all. Anna meets Alexander Campbell who takes on Anna's case as it will provide him with further publicity. The Fitzgerald family was already hanging by a thread and this action is the last straw, threatening to break them apart forever. At the hospital, the doctor informs Sara and Brian that Anna is brain-dead and asks them if they have considered organ donation.

My Sister's Keeper

A geriatric care manager or family therapist might make a good mediator and arbiter, if you feel you need one. Thomas Dekkar's Taylor is a big part of this, but her family is as well. Sometimes, just calling and listening to her vent might be a useful service. I think even though she was ready, I wasn't able to let her go.

Hospice is a wonderful service for those at the Am I my parents keeper? book of life, and it helps patients at home or the place they call home — which can include a nursing home. One reason that the average stay in assisted living is fairly brief — twenty-seven months — is that people wait until they are quite frail and have multiple health problems before they do move.
