I was talking to the owner of a large funeral home in Norfolk around 1982. I casually asked if he ever had anyone come back to life.
He replied that they had one just the week before. They called an ambulance which took him to the hospital where he lived a few days before dying again.
Who is paying for continuing this life support when she is brain dead?!
Just because there exists the technical ability to force a dead body to breathe, doesn’t mean dead people should be kept alive indefinitely.
It is a sad situation.
Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to bring the brain back to life once it has become dead tissue. This case is *not* like the Terri Schindler case, where her brain was damaged but she was still alive and aware. Nor is it comparable to a coma case, where the person cannot move or react, but is alive and may be conscious (in some cases).
First the hospital causes this to happen, now they want this child dead so they can get the bed..sickening..this is what a death panel looks like
Frankly, most of these cases are DOA.
However, knew a young man who overdosed and was brain dead. Also his lungs were giving out after a week plus on vent...glass lung syndrome. The docs were going to turn him off on Friday, but since Sunday was Mother’s Day and he was his mother’s only child, they decided to wait until Monday. He woke up Saturday.
How was he? Ok, Some memory loss, some processing complications. Never finished his doctorate, working the convenience store life. A learning lesson for my children.
Very interesting on many levels. A prayer and a Merry Christmas for Jahi, her family, her friends.
