tough choices

So tell me, is it the end?
No, but we’ll need to do extensive surgery.
I don’t know if I can afford it! Should I just say my good-byes? How do I decide if the surgery is worth the cost?
We usually suggest that it is worth it if the cost of surgery is less than 60% of the actual value…
But how does one attach a price tag? I mean, there is immeasurable value…
It’s up to you… We have a graveyard if you decide to let go…
I think the surgery comes out to be 59% of my best estimate of the value! I don’t know what to do!

Take your time. There’s no need to decide right away.
Oh go ahead, do it!
