After the End

So today marks 10 years since we first began our library blog. I chose to re-read one of my favorite authors, Claire Mackintosh over the Christmas break. It’s been long enough that I had forgotten what happens. Pip and Max Adams’ 3 year old son Dylan has terminal brain cancer and is paralyzed from the neck down, on pain medication, with a very poor quality of life. His mother, Pip, wants to let him die, not wanting to prolong a life of suffering. His father, Max, has heard of proton beam therapy in Texas that could prolong Dylan’s life and possibly offer him more options. The hospital recommends palliative care until Dylan dies. So a court case ensues, and both sides of the argument are presented. It’s a good read — really makes you think about what you would do…
