Think of this story before signing your "Living Will"

A Belgian man doctors claimed was in a vegetative state for 23 years wasn't.  He was conscious and aware but unable to communicate . . . trapped in "utter powerlessness," a living hell.  Now, equipped with a specialized touchscreen on his wheelchair, Rom Houben, is back in touch with the world.  Alive again, as he always was.

Think of this when someone asks you to remove a feeding tube.
