LIVING WILL and DESIGNATION OF HEALTH CARE SURROGATE I.

LIVING WILL
Declaration made this ______ day of ____________________, _____. I, Susan Smith, willfully and voluntarily make known my desire that my dying not be artificially prolonged under the circumstances set forth below, and I do hereby declare: A. LIFE-PROLONGING PROCEDURES. If at any time I am BOTH mentally and physically incapacitated AND __________ (initial) I have a terminal condition __________ (initial) or I have an end-state condition __________ (initial) or I am in a persistent vegetative state AND if my attending or treating physician and another consulting physician have determined that there is no reasonable medical probability of my recovery from such condition, I direct that lifeprolonging procedures be withheld or withdrawn when the application of such procedures would serve only to prolong artificially the process of dying, and that I be permitted to die naturally with only the administration of medication or the performance of any medical procedure deemed necessary to provide me with comfort care or to alleviate pain. B. NUTRITION AND HYDRATION. If I have a condition stated above, it is my preference TO RECEIVE artificially administered nutrition and hydration (food and fluids). C. PREGNANCY. If I have been diagnosed as pregnant and that diagnosis is known to my physician, this document shall have no force or effect during the course of my pregnancy. However, if at any point it is determined that it is not possible that the fetus could develop to the point of live birth with continued application of life-prolonging procedures, it is my preference that this document be given effect at that point. If life-prolonging procedures will be physically harmful or unreasonably painful to me in a manner that cannot be alleviated by medication, I request that my desire for personal physical comfort be given consideration in determining whether this document shall be effective if I am pregnant.

II. DESIGNATION OF HEALTH CARE SURROGATE
A. DESIGNATION OF HEALTH CARE SURROGATE. In the event that I have been determined to be incapacitated to provide informed consent for medical treatment and surgical and diagnostic procedures, I wish to designate as my Surrogate for health care decisions:
