What if you were in a coma? Would you want to be presumed "brain dead" or a "vegetable"?
I met Greta Emling, the wonderful author of the equally wonderful Wounded, Trapped, and Voiceless, at a wedding reception a little less than a month ago -- on December 18th, to be precise. She was already acquainted with my husband, Barry. She had heard I was also an author and wanted to meet me. I downloaded her book to my Amazon Kindle on the spot. It turns out my husband already had a copy of the hard copy book she had given him as a gift sometime earlier. This was a book I could hardly put down. I had a case as a lawyer involving very similar issues several years earlier. In that case I obtained a restraining order against a prominent Detroit, Michigan area hospital and one of its physicians from "pulling the plug" on a man in very similar circumstances. Watch the video clip above to meet both the author and the subject of the book. I am blessed to have Greta Emling as my radio guest tomorrow night, 7 p.m. Eastern time, 4 p.m. Pacific time on my internet radio program, "My Perspective" at "themicroeffect.com."
How it was detected that the alleged "vegetable," was awake, heard every word, but was trapped in her own body as a result of a condition known as "slow brain bleed" is vital for all of us who might one day become either trapped in our own bodies and/or have loved ones that are. We might need to be the advocate for such a loved one or have a loved one be one for us.
This book and this subject are important. Please join us Tuesday night on MY PERSPECTIVE internet radio!
Tune in and stay tuned!
