I'm not a medical expert, but yes, they have seemingly been quick to label Lauren as having a persistent vegetative state. Although the following article doesn't mention a coma, firefighter Donald Herbert was evidently in such a state for about 10 years before he woke up.
It amazes me that the people labeled in a vegetative state who have “awakened,” even if only temporarily, have not asked why nobody snuffed them and put them out of their misery. I haven’t read a single case where that happened. Yet, the death cult ignores any evidence that the personality still exists.
