Yes, I'm with Mary and Pat as well. This is far too much.

I only say that because Tom is no longer the invulnerable person he was ten years ago. He probably knows that but it's so hard to accept it.

I had to take my father's car keys away at the age of 92 but, shit, he was almost blind and almost completely deft. He wasn't pleased but there really wasn't any other good moral choice.

I hope when I'm similarly incapacitated my younger friends and family will have the strength to make such decisions for me. I doubt if I'll be very appreciative but that would be the right decision.
