I’m familiar with all that. And if that is *really* the case there is no hope.
I’m also familiar with newspaper reporters who report information that is incorrect and with surgeons who may make value judgements about who is actually brain dead.

“Isnt it interesting that there are so many people who have very alive functioning organs but their brain is totally supposedly dead.”
You mean, like those people who pull the (D) lever in the voting booth every two years?
The body responds to trauma in different ways. It is hard to make a value judgement in a case like this.

I do feel bad for her parents, I cannot imagine having to toss in the towel on one of my children as such a tender age.
But to hear the hospital spokes-nitwit, you would think that they should have sent her to the organ ghouls, and the balance to the morgue within minutes, instead of giving the family time to make their peace with the reality of their situation. I would think that by now, we can be fairly certain that this poor girl has gone over to the other side.
