Sad story and I must salute the wife's commitment but the havoc this long term coma wrecks on the physical body is torturous in my opinion. Euthanasia should have been considered a long long long time ago in my opinion.

The bit I don't get is that he "hasn't aged" (apart from some grey/white hairs). Is that normal in a coma?

Nor would one see much of the sun - which is purported to be the biggest issue with ageing - apart from smoking, which is pretty hard to do in a coma too.

Yes, but he's gone from 34 to 66......... must be some signs of ageing/aging, surely?

His wife is something else. My mom is the same way, total and unrelenting dedication to the family no matter how hard it is for her.
