Vegetative is as vegitative does

It appears that the miracle Terri Schiavo needed from God or Jesus or the U.S. Congress or Shrub or somebody was the regeneration of half her brain, because the coroner’s report released today shows that it weighed half of what it should have and had atrophied so profoundly that the damage was irreversible.
There was also no evidence that she had suffered broken bones or any other injuries as the result of abuse, as her family had accused, and her original attack was probably not the result of an eating disorder.
Official cause of death was dehydration, not starvation, and even if she had been fed after her feeding tube was removed she could not have swallowed and would probably have choked to death.
In other words, everything the husband claimed was true, and everything the parents claimed was false.
