When, after prescribed overdosing of Celebrex I flatlined during a heart attack, the chief of ICU visited me the next morning to tell me what had happened. My reply, "Oh, well, I've had a good run" seemed to really hurt his feelings, but if, on the day I do die, it is with the same sentiments, I'll be more than happy.
