Thank you Jan for your response. I know it sounds a bit morose to some but I think it will be easier for me to go through if I have some sort of picture of what is coming. I'm looking for all the unpleasant details such as the end of body functions, what things I won't be able to do for myself, what my appearance will become, and what the last weeks will be like. Sucks to read that your husband is gone. I'd be greatful for any details I listed but completely understand if you would rather not share. Hope you are doing well
I have read this fine book and highly recommend it. I think it may address most of your questions regarding "details on what the "shutdown" will be like", and may be of some value to you...
"With the End in Mind: Dying, Death, and Wisdom in an Age of Denial"
by Kathryn Mannix
(In the words of one reviewer) - This book is an absolute essential reading for everyone. No one is immune from death, not only our own but our family and friends. This book tells in a concise way of the pattern to the way life ends.
