Karen asked me some standard questions, and of course once I have the opportunity to talk, I opened up a floodgate of information. Possibly so much so she may have been derailed on her standard path of social work questioning. We covered insurance, the procedures, who the recipient is, after the surgery, complications, living will, power of attorney, my general state of mind LOL, the relationship I have with the recipient, and many other questions. One thing she didn’t actually ask is WHY I am doing this. I have many reasons, but the single specific question of why didn’t come up. My initial reason is so my recipient can be around for the weddings of my children. My current reason…it’s something I want to do.
