This is the story of how one young, newly married couple did just that:
- They requested that doctors never tell them how long was left
- They skipped the bucket-list approach to living life
- They “accepted the impermanence of the situation but they didn’t dwell on it”
- They spent time watching TV
- They got pregnant and had a baby
