Because Bob's life will never come to completion, if all goes according to plan.

We also updated my father's legal documents before he declined precipitously. He had signed relevant forms in Arizona, and this did not work under Michigan law, which prescribes very precisely the forms needed. This is a very important lesson; you need to check what your state needs. One size does not fit allhttp://www.cryonics.org/reports/CI106.html

Finally, we arranged with CI to have lots of coolers filled with ice, a cooling box for the head and a full ice bath for the body, along with the iron heart to pump blood during the cooling process at my father's house, courtesy, of course, of Andy and Ben. We kept them away from the room in which my father was, because we didn't want to discourage him about his situation (knowing him, it wouldn't have mattered, but we didn't want to take a chance). But we had things close enough at hand so that we could begin to use them within seconds or minutes. (Everything involved but the iron heart can pretty easily be replicated at any location.)

So we (Connie in particular) pursued a second angle: EMS. Connie talked at length with Clinton Township EMS officials. These officials, in Clinton Township at least, commonly pronounce death with the cooperation of hospital physicians (who are e-mailed EKGs and given reports from the scene). Typically, though, if they get a call indicating a death, that goes to the bottom of their list, because it is regarded as less urgent than emergencies with living people. Connie convinced them that we needed immediate attention, and they notified their people that a call about my father should receive an immediate response. They posted notices in their office to that effect. Connie helped the process along by pointing out that my father was both the founder of cryonics and a decorated World War II veteran.

This became a near textbook suspension (if there were a textbook.) Of course, we benefited from the fact that my father's expiration proceeded in a manner that gave us some warning (though, as noted, it was unexpected when it did happen). But all the work and preparation were critical. The expense was relatively modest, a few thousand dollars for the 3 nurses.
