This is his wife. For the past month, MK has been in the ICU, with a really bad lung infection. He is on a ventilator right now, but he is stable. It's probably going to be a while before he can post on this board again.

Thank you for all your well wishes. Hopefully, he will be back to irritating other members of this forum with his reasoning soon.

**UPDATE**

First of all, thank you again for all of your support. I apologize for taking so long to get this update to you guys.

They tried to do a tracheotomy last week and had to stop because he had flatlined. They managed to get his heart going again with chest compressions. They did either a CT scan or an MRI (I forget which one) of his brain and spinal chord and found that he had a stroke, and several parts of his brain had been damaged. He is currently in a vegetative state. There is no doubt in my mind that he would want to be kept alive for as long as possible, so that is the course of action I am taking.

MY ADVICE TO EVERYONE: Whatever you would want in this situation, let your loved ones know. Set up an advance directive now while you can. There are instructions on how to do so all over the internet. And unless you really, really REALLY trust that person, do not choose an heir to make decisions for you. Well, choose someone that you would trust with your life, anyway, because that is literally what you are doing. I am so thankful that MK made his wishes clear to me when he could.

Anyway, thanks again for all your prayers and support.

Dear Mrs. Kong... I believe all of us are very saddened by this news.

Having had my sister a couple of years ago in a similar situation. She, with a Living Will and expressed wishes to her husband and if necessary (both incapacitated at the same time) her oldest adult child. Her wishes were fulfilled.

You are correct that all must make their wishes explicitly known, including a Living Will.

Again, we are all greatly saddened by the news.

I am so sorry your family had to go through that. What were her wishes (if you don't mind my asking)?
