I don't even know what to write. Mom hasn't come out of the coma, and the outlook is, in the words of the doctors, "grim." The medical consensus is that she will be in a persistant vegetative state. Yesterday we as a family decided to respect her wishes as stated in her living will, and withdrew life support. She's breathing laboriously on her own, but there's no hope she will get better.

No one should have to go through this, her or us.

I may not be posting much in the next little while. My mom was rear-ended in a horrendous car crash last Wednesday and Emma, Shaun and I flew back to Maine to be with her and my dad. Right now she's in a coma, and we're just waiting to see what happens.

I feel angry and miserable and desperately sad. Nothing seems worth doing anymore.
