Reviving a dead brain


until the copyright cops find it...this is a Coast to Coast am discussion on the new techniques being used for severely brain damaged people.

a UKGuardian article here

I remember the Christmas when Mrs. WhiteBull came out of her coma...after being given amantadine to prevent influenza. Or after her family had just finished a novena to Blessed Kateri Tekawitha. Take your choice.

right now, there is a big case about a brain dead girl in California whose parents refuse to stop treatment. I feel for them since dead is dead.

The problem? Who did the tests? (the medicines given after surgery can cloud the diagnosis) (The hospital is up for a big lawsuit, but it will be larger if she lives) (The family is black, and many minorities just don't trust hospitals).
