Her chest only rises and falls because a ventilator is pumping air into it. Taken off the ventilator she might go on breathing a little longer or stop right away. But as a health care professional, I feel being kept on life support after all meaningful brain function has stopped is a terrible situation, not one I would choose for my family.. Its not fair to the family, the folks taking care of her or those of us paying for it.
I’ve had to make that decision and it’s amazing how long someone keeps breathing after the ventilator is removed but it is obvious when the person dies. That spark of life has left and now you’re only looking at a dead body and it happens in the blink of an eye.
It’s not an experience you ever want to go through.
That spark of life is one of God’s greatest creations.
