Something I did not realize is that sometimes the medical team will help sway these situations. They ran tests and he had no breathing function, therefore the Trilogy would not work any longer. Yes, the hospital's ventilator was fully breathing for him and there was constant removal of fluids from his lungs. They advised my stepmother there was nothing more they could do and she decided it was time to remove him from life support. Thank you everyone.

I'm so sorry for your loss, but I'm so glad the medical team could help bring him peace by advocating with your stepmother. This has allowed you to be spared that extra grief. I hope you all find a place of comfort as you grieve.
