A family is gathered by Sally's bedside. Sally has been seriously ill, and now is likely near the end of her life. Her daughters and sons disagree about what should be done and what Sally would want. Throughout the course of her illness, Sally and her children never discussed what her care priorities should be in the final months and weeks of her life. Even in the final days of her life, these important decisions go unaddressed. This can lead to irreconcilable differences among Sally's family with the thought that they might have been able to do more.
