Post Brain Damaged Dad Speaks After 10 Years

What an amazing story:

http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0...341677,00.html

I can only think how distressing it must be for Terri Shiavo's parents and siblings if they hear about this.

Actually...after she died I never heard anything more about the funeral which the husband and parents were also arguing over....does anyone know if indeed her husband did have her cremated instead of giving her a burial as per Roman Catholic custom and her parent's wishes?

I seem to recall reading that Terri was cremated, which seemed pretty unfair to me as Terri had religious beliefs that suggested a preference for burial.

Bob, you are out of control! It seems you broke the 18,000 barrier just a wee while ago.

And the other millions of family members that go through these decisions each year.

The huge huge difference here is that they performed SCAN's on Terri and she had no brain, it was gone, bluntly it was mush. It was this undisputed evidence the review boards (judges, doctors) saw.

This guy was kind of in a living coma which too can happen but the cases are not closely comparable - as I'm told.

Brains to not grow back.........

Did you read the first words he said?

He said, "I want to talk to my wife." Smart man...

Are you saying that being brain damaged is cool?
