Hello... Two weeks ago, my partner had a cardiac arrest and is in a coma and not waking up. When he first went in they had him sedated and cooled him for nearly a week. They did an MRI which showed normal and the doctor says that he is responsive to pain. He had started to show signs of waking up but is now having seizures and barely even opens his eyes and is more unresponsive. Today a new doctor on rotation came in, barely looked at him, gave him a pinch on the shoulder and told the nurse to move him to nuerology tomorrow and then to a nursing home. I asked the doctor if he thought he was never going to wake up and he said "he will probably wake up, but he is never going to to independant living again". I am so upset and terrified. I know that I have seen some subtle responses and I should also add that my partner is already breathing with just a trachia and mask. The nurse said that that usually doesnt happen for another week, so everything considering, he seems to be doing fairly well but this new doctor has left me terrified and almost hopeless. Reading your stories has given me renewed hope.
