Andrea Clark Safe at LastTopics: Euthanasia
Sunday was the day Andrea Clark's hospital originally said they would end her life sustaining medical treatment. As a result of the efforts of her family and friends, Andrea's sister sent us the following email today:
How am I doing? I am doing FABULOUS! My sister, Andrea, is GETTING WELL. Her white blood cell count has been down to normal for the FOURTH day in a ROW now, and she has been able to get off of the blood pressure raising drugs that she has had to be on for MONTHS. She is doing GREAT. Her new doctor ... has also halved the amount of pain medications that she is taking, so that she can talk to her family. He says that her condition is "serious," but that she does have the ability to get much better.Andrea's attorney, Jerri Ward, writes:
I want to let you know that St. Luke's is doing the right thing in this case now. The physician team met with the new attending and it went well. The team is on board and the medical futility procedure has been stopped. For the time being, Andrea will continue to receive life-sustaining and appropriate treatment at St. Luke's.In a follow-up email, Jerri wrote:
Thank YOU and everybody who helped, including pro-life bloggers, Terri Schindler's family and all your readers. God Bless you all.Praise God! Yes, miracles do happen. We couldn't be happier for Andrea and her family.
