My friend had an operation after an aneurysm rapture 2 weeks ago she was fully sedated after the op for a week then taken off sedation but still on a ventilator. She's not opened her eyes but when spoken to she moves or twitches her eyes in response. Docs are saying she is brain damaged but have not shown the family the scans. The docs are now saying that they will turn off the ventilator even if the family disagree. The family are confident she will pull through but she needs time.
