We spoke about this recently in Bible Study. The only person you can receive the Eucharist from is an Orthodox priest.
In regards to confession, if you are dying and an Orthodox priest cannot get to you in time, you can confess to another Orthodox Christian. Then, the next time they go to confession, they will relay your confession to the priest.
I spent the first half of my life seeking the One, True, Holy Church. I bounced around long enough in my life.
In the post-Communion hymn we sing, "We have seen the true light, we have received the heavenly spirit. We have found the true faith, worshipping the undivided Trinity, who has saved us."
Now that I have found the truth, why would I abandon it on my death bed for the sake of convenience?
