Since some of you have asked about Kelly and now I have to share sad news. Earlier in the week we were hopeful that he was on the road to recovery. Over the last couple of days though, he took a turn for the worse.

The Doctors informed his family yesterday that Kelly will never recover from his trauma. Kelly has left explicit instructions on what to do if he were ever in a persistent vegetative state. The Doctors have made it clear he has no brain activity. Per Kelly's wishes they will turn off the machines that are keeping his body going on Sunday. This whole event has been unexpected and we are about to lose one of the bright spots on Earth.

I believe that no one should exist in a vegetative state. My parents had this directive in their will and I have it in mine. We never know what will happen to us. If you have strong beliefs as to what you would want for yourself if you were in this situation, put it in writing and share it with your friends and family. If there is ever a crisis sitautation where someone has to speak for you, it will be easier for your family to do so, if they understand your wishes.
