1. was in a persistive vegetative state
2. had a massively atrophied brain and no possibility of recovery
3. showed no signs of trauma from abuse
4. was BLIND and could not track balloons around her hospice room
I feel bad for her husband and her family, in different ways.
But, now that this is over, may I request just one thing? Will the folks who took up residence outside the hospice and used this family tragedy as a hobby kindly sit down, shut up, and stay out of other people's lives? Get a cat. Take up basketweaving.
