Re: Prayer request
- Stan, It truly is a difficult situation. Which is why I think we need
to pray for help... In Terri's case there wasn't a living will (just
her husband's statement, which emerged many years after her collapse)
and the footage I saw on TV showed a woman who was awake and
interacting with those around her, though she was clearly affected. I
That was what prompted my post. I was surprised by what I saw- I had
thought she was in a deep coma and had a living will. The news
reported that suspicion had been raised of mistreatment by her
spouse (apparently she had signs of numerous fractures that were
unexplained) and her family feels he is afraid she may one day
talk... In any case, I feel her mother's pain and can't understand
why her husband wouldn't just divorce her and let her parents handle
it...just sounds so fishy.
I will pray for your situation too... We live in difficult times and
the choices we face are really unbelievable.
In XC, D.
