I know here in Florida you spell it out like no brain wave and chance of coming out of a coma . It gets down to the nity gritty too like if your vitals go down hill ,or if vitals are ok and your Doctor tells family their is no chance of survival too. I was also told please have someone else beside a family member decide when to pull the plug if need be. It is up to each and everyone of us. Oona I do know the teaching hospitials have something called the 5 wishes you go through the book check what you want done and then have 2 witness sign it like a friend neighboor even your doctors nurse etc and they use that if you go into the hopsital .My Husband knows donot pull the plug till I have no brainwave. He was the one in a coma for 3 months had to learn to walk,talk,eat all over again and the wreck affected his sense of balance but it all depends on want too. So Oona ask for the book the 5 wishes next time you see the doctor look through it ok and that can answer more than I can go into here ok.or e-amil and I can explain more ok.

Grows with a KISS
And ends with a TEAR
