Making her wishes unmistakably clear

A healthy, active octogenarian has had the words "Do Not Resuscitate" tattooed on her chest.

My favorite bit of this story:

Her daughter, an Assistant Dean at a medical school, "failed to talk her mother out of getting the tattoo."

"[Mom] said, 'Remember all those times when you were a teenager, and I said don't do this, that or the other thing? Paybacks are tough, aren't they?'"
