hey guys, so my hubby asked me a question and I dont have much of an answer so I thought Id run it by you guys to benefit from various expeiences. Basically he was at a dr. apt with his dad and the dr. said he may need an opperation on his colon and a colostmy bag. On the way home he told him that if that is his only option he would rather just check out (take a bunch of pills) For him it doesnt sound like a sad story, more like he would just be done with his life at that time. He then said he wouldnt want my hubby any where near him at that time because he wouldnt want him to be implicated in any way with his suicide. My hubby would really like to be there with him when he passes so we looked into the laws a bit. We are in WA and it seems they adopted a similar law to Oregon which states that if you can get 2 dr. to sign a statement saying you have 6 mo. to live it is a legal assisted suicide. Its hard for us to sift through all the legal mumbo jumbo on the web so Id specifically like any info or experience yall have. Basically what he really wants to know is - if the dr says you can get an opperation and it will extend your life several years, but you dont want that opperation - you just want your body to naturally give out when its time, is it likely the dr. will sign a the assisted suicide documents saying you have 6 months to live (assuming that without the opperation you will pass away within that time). And if you have the appropriate signed documents and procedure in place, is it legally safe to have family present.
