    Our family was faced one evening with this decision when my brother was fatally injured in a motorcycle accident.

    Qudrapalegic, deaf, dumb, blind,
    unable to eat, drink or breath unassisted is NOT living - it is existing in a dead body.

    One celled organism are more alive at that point.

    People need to wrestle with this, and have already made a decision BEFORE it is ever needed to be asked.

    I've worked in various aspects of geriatric health care for over a decade. This is a conversation we need in this country. Too bad this book can't be required reading for everyone.
