Primo: Jack and I don't think dad would want to be intubated.
Primo: But Ted does.
Me: Not good. But you have the medical power of attorney, right?
Primo: Yes, but I would like to have consensus with my brothers.
Me: Of course.
Primo: And Ted thinks dad should have the surgery.
Me: Does that mean Ted will move there to take care of your dad and clean the bag?
Primo: I don't think so. Besides, he would have to be in a nursing home. He could not take care of himself.
Me: That does not sound like something he would like.
Primo: I don't think so.
Me: Did you cancel the cottage?
Me: Sweetie, we need to give them a chance to re-rent it. They should not have to take a financial hit.
Primo: But what if my dad dies this weekend? Then we could still go.
Me: Good point.
