The blog piece, How Doctors Die, It’s Not Like the Rest of Us, But It Should Be by Ken Murray, MD, has come up repeatedly in more than one of my San Francisco support groups, and around the internet, and newspapers, and blogs. . .

It’s not a frequent topic of discussion, but doctors die, too. And they don’t die like the rest of us. What’s unusual about them is not how much treatment they get compared to most Americans, but how little.

An interesting read, and something to think about when planning for yourself and your loved ones.  Just a bit of the ripple effect created by this article can be explored in the related article section below  The Time article by Shannon Brownlee also nicely expands on the themes begun in Ken Murray’s article.
