"Though she remains on a feeding tube, a nurse indicated Poutre is eating scrambled eggs and cream of wheat and has been able to tap out "drum rhythms'" during physical therapy sessions, according to a Boston Globe report.
Other reports indicate Poutre has been able to use hand signals to communicate, including holding up two fingers to indicate she wanted to see her younger sister. She plays with her mother and grandmother's hair when they visit and rubs their faces." from the link
And they were so quick to want to euthanize her. How many cases are there like this that we don't know about?
That's part of what scares me. This attitude that people are disposable is sickening. They labelled Haleigh as PVS within 5 days of her hospitalization! PVS is a clinical diagnosis that is made over much more time. That's why it's called persistent. I know the DSS wanted to get the step-dad on murder charges, but that doesn't condone them wanting to withdraw life support from Haleigh. Did the DSS lawyers convince the doctors to give a PVS diagnosis, or are the doctors just quacks with hardened hearts? Makes you wonder who you should trust. None of them, I'd say.
