If one of my children were in this situation, I don't know what I would do. I don't want to lose either of them, ever. I'd probably hold on hoping some day they'd wake up, but if they were brain dead and no organs were working on their own I would have to make the decision. They are already dead at that point, in my opinion.
Sorry to hear about your wife. Thanks for sharing. I hope I am never in that situation but like other posters I would probably spend a lot of time praying about it.
