Mr. Bevins—Patient’s Spouse
Lydia and I have been married for 4 years, and I know that she would not want to be kept alive in this fashion. She and I have had many conversations and discussions about end-of-life decisions, and living like this would not be her choice. I do not know the whereabouts of the advance directive, because she did this prior to our marriage, and my attempts to obtain a copy have failed. I am her guardian, and therefore the decision should be mine.
Eileen Redfield—Patient’s Mother
I am Lydia’s mother and it hurts me to see my daughter laying there so incapacitated. Ending her life is not the answer. A couple of the physicians have implied that she might get better and live a better life, although others have given me little hope for recovery. A miracle is always possible, and I want to give my child every chance she can to live.
Dr. Bob Pritchard—Patient’s Physician
I have been taking care of Lydia for the past 90 days. Although she does demonstrate progress in very small increments, her level of functioning has not significantly improved. This is compounded by the fact that Lydia also suffers from breast cancer—a condition diagnosed and treated successfully before the accident. I am not sure what advice to give the family about the patient’s long-term survival.
