I was in a Persistent Vegetative State

Topics: Medical Issues

From a reader:

I was in a PVS after my brain surgery in 1984. Unlike Terri, I got therapies and learned to talk and walk again. I finished school and later graduated from college with honors. Don't tell me miracles don't happen: I am living proof!!! If someone could get terri angry enough, she'd talk: that's how I did it.

I have just finished a novena for terri. I continue to pray and fast for her.

God Bless You all!

Love in Christ,

Wow, what a testimony. Thank you for sharing your story and your prayers. I am a major believer in everyone over the age of consent having a living will, but to base the decision to pull her tube on hearsay from a questionable source is wrong. There is something completely and utterly wrong with taking this woman's nourishment away AND continually denying her rehabilitation. This case breaks my heart. I will continue to pray, and to hope.
