    There is a whole criteria for determining brain death

    We are not practicing medicine or law. We are having a discussion with the information that is available.

    I am glad the right decision was made. The judge ruled the law was not be applied correctly and the families wishes were followed. This isn't a happy ending, but I think this went well past the chance for anything good to come out of this situation.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
