Hopefully I made my point without offending anyone or seeming too selfish or unfeeling. It's a struggle.,
Don't be afraid of offending people. Anyone who has been in your position will understand that your wishes are not selfish nor inhumane. I have been there myself twice. Still try to have a Merry Christmas.
I would ask Santa for a younger set of knees and an inflatable drift boat.
