DMX is a vegetable to me

I spoke to DMX's former manager, who's remained close to him and his family. she said X is still in a "vegetative state" with little to no brain activity or function.

she and his family are "praying and waiting," and encourages his fans to stay positive.

Can people really wake up from a vegetative state with NO brain activity? Are all the people praying for him to wake up and have a full recovery on Twitter being naive? Is it once you’re a vegetable, you’re always a vegetable?

It can happen, but it extremely rare. The fundies like to cling to the few instances, but you have better chances of winning the lottery twice than waking up from a persistent vegetative state.

If he has no brain activity I'd say it's time to accept that he's gone.

by Anonymousreply 304/06/2021

Did he ever have brain activity?

It’s really sad, but once your brain’s a piece of shit, it’s always a piece of shit.

But he’s so young. He can overcome this.

How long until the family starts asking the fans for money to help with the medical expenses?

Is he going to be the new jahi mcmath?

Even if DMX miraculously “wakes up,” he’ll be profoundly fucked up. The kindest thing to do is to let him go. That’s what I’d want.

Lamar Odom was fucked up like this but miraculously came back to life after a few weeks.

This case is sad, I saw a clip of him explaining how he got hooked and he was very emotional.

I came here for a Terri Schiavo reference, and I've not been disappointed.

Why associate vegetables with this homophobic, animal-abusing asshole? This is literal violence towards vegetarians!

Lamar Odom was in a coma, not a vegetative state. If he’s determined to be brain dead, the insurance coverage will cut off 48 hours afterwards.

Here the story of a British teenager, who was declared brain-dead but who woke up from his coma shortly before they wanted to remove his organs.

When someone has no brain activity, they have a panel of three neurologists look at their medical records. They determine whether the person is brain dead. If they are, then the family can have them removed from life support.

People don’t understand the difference between a coma and brain dead. Lots of people are in comas and are fine afterwards. Brain dead is a one way street. This happened to my mom. One idiotic nurse kept telling us she was “praying for a miracle” and insisting she could wake up any moment. No she couldn’t. People like this do nothing but make the situation more painful for the family. It’s like, what if your family member was buried in a grave, and some moron started insisting they were going to wake up and be fine? You’d want to slap the teeth out of their mouth. This is where religious nutters need to keep their “miracles” to themselves.

The insurance company does cut off immediately at that point. You can put a person like this into hospice and wait for them to die. Hospitals do not want dead people taking up their beds. The minute they find out you’re not getting any better, you’re out of there.

As far as someone having no brain activity, and then waking up, that’s virtually impossible. Somebody made a mistake.

It’s possible that if someone’s family really wanted the patient to stay in the hospital, they might claim they thought there was some hope. But brain activity is measured by a machine, not a person. Either it’s there or it isn’t. They explained it to me by saying, even if she could wake up and open her eyes, which she can’t, if she looked at you she wouldn’t know who you were. She wouldn’t even know what you were. She wouldn’t know you were a human being, or any different from the wall. If she saw her own arm, she wouldn’t know it was an arm, or attached to her body.

Who would want to wake up like that?

by Anonymousreply 1904/06/2021

His brain was without oxygen for over 30 minutes, so even if he wakes up, he’ll probably have brain damage.

by Anonymousreply 2004/06/2021

R20, that’s what happened to my mother. They thought it was around 20 minutes or less.

by Anonymousreply 2104/06/2021

I said it better, R19.

by Anonymousreply 2204/06/2021

If it’s impossible then how did the brain dead British teen wake up and recover?

OP, if you were underwear, you would be the FRUIT of the loom!

What was on his iPod? I mean, besides the obvious: "If I Only Had a Brain"?

R1, I cringed, and laughed a little. Now I feel bad about myself.

They should try giving him some DMT.

by Anonymousreply 3004/07/2021

Wasn't familiar with him, except knew the initials was a rapper.

I read his wiki page and he was charged more than once with multiple counts of animal cruelty.

Hard to have sympathy for anyone who abuses animals.

Shots and eclairs.

His family should let him go.
