Vegetative brains show glimmers of awareness - More health news- msnbc.com
oh good---there's still hope for Ravi
and what type of quality of life will such 'vegetative' person have? i'm not sure the thought of being at all aware of what's happening isn't worse.
we're kinder to our pets.
If you're not sure, kill em--that's what I always say.
you are free to leave a living will that says to keep you alive...and give a health care proxy to someone who will effectuate those wishes.
Thanks counselor--what do I owe you ?
Even if there is a glimmering of hope, what kind of life is that? All the resources to take care of a person who can barely be aware of what's going on around them and can't do much of anything else
yeah, imagine being trapped in a body in which you can't do anything, this finding makes it even more horrific to string someone like that along
mostly it THEIR life--not yours
Couldn't we asl them 'do you want to keep living like this?'?
