my uncle-in-law died

was he murdered?

so i get a phone call from my wife this afternoon, her uncle bud died. her aunt is droppin us some plane tickets to fly out for the funeral (LA) and hang from sun-tues. heres the weird thing. he didnt die a normal death, she (wifes aunt) pulled the plug! he had pneumonia! he was on morphine, conscience but in a relaxed vegetative state for about two weeks. the doctors did an autopsy and found out his brain was not effected by the sickness at all! hmm can you say life insurance policy.

The chances of waking up from a coma decrease greatly with time. 2 weeks is a very long time.

I wouldn't want to be on life support very long.

Messed up. Sorry dude.

My idea of 'gun control' is putting as many bullets as I can into the same hole.

Iím all for gun control, I just define it a little differently. If you can put 2 rounds into the same hole from 25 meters, thatís gun control!

Well, it's not the typical move from a loving wife.

Dunno, I think I'd stay away from that one.

Dress for the slide & not the ride

doesnt bother me really. he was a charismatic guy. kinda makes me think twice about pissing my wife off. i think ill opt to have my ma pull the plug. she always warned me,"i bought you into this world imma take ya outta it!"

Strange that I just had that conversation with my dad today.

That none of us want to be in that postition and are getting living wills to dictate clearly our wishes.

Off the cuff, 2 weeks was my upper limit for being on life support, and maybe not at all. Still have time to make up the details.

My worst fear to be lying there and be aware but "trapped."

"Relaxed" vegetative state my ass, could be living a nightmare over and over.
Even if it is a medically induced coma that they can "control" who knows what YOU may be going through in there. Trapped in a bad trip, or having an itch you can feel but no way to communicate or act on it- no thanks.

I've had head and stomache aches worse than a quick death....

People like terri schiavo's parents are selfish to keep someone like her they way they did and then badmouth the husband that she CHOSE for trying to honor her wishes.

On the other hand I knew a guy who woke up one day after like 7mos wondering how he got in the hospital (moto accident.) He was never 100% but did "okay."

Beyond not wanting to lay in a coma I REALLY wouln't want to burden loved ones by "existing."

Plus I'm an organ donor so maybe I can help someone else if it comes to that.
