Indeed. This is akin to trying to keep a decapitated body alive. Not even remotely similar to Terri.”
Terri’s so called husband had doctors who said Terri was brain dead too. Yet her parents had video that showed she laughed at her father’s jokes. I still remember the video that Fox showed where Terri looked scared to death when they removed the feeding tube the first time. Still they had doctors testified that she was brain dead.
They said my father was in a vegetative state, yet he was still talking to us.
I don’t know what shape the child is really in, but they have pronounced people brain dead when they aren’t. I don’t know why they couldn’t let these people have more time to get used to the idea that their child is not going to come back, especially since the hospital and doctors caused her condition. I think it is because a dead child will lower the amount on a malpractice lawsuit than having a child that needs care for the rest of her life.
Terri was never declared brain dead. Doctors testified that she was in a PSV, which is very different from brain dead. Terri had enough electrical activity in her brain to keep her body alive - heart and lungs pumping, blood flow to the brain, etc.
Jahi has zero electrical activity in her brain. No blood flow to the brain. No electrical signals to the autonomic nervous system to keep her heart and lungs pumping and maintain her body’s temperature. They are using warming blankets to keep a cold corpse warm. The myocardial cells in the heart can generate the electrical charge needed to keep the heart beating for a few days, which is why Jahi’s heart is still beating. With no blood flow to the brain, the brain is beginning to liquify. The body will deteriorate rapidly now. No one declared brain dead has ever recovered - no one. That child is dead.
