They lifted the sedatives, but he never woke up, so they took him to be scanned by an MRI machine. I don't know all the minor details, but there is... very little-to-no brain activity. He has been transferred to hospice, it's just a matter of days now.
Please continue to keep this poor family (the Wests) in your prayers in the months to come. He was the primary breadwinner in the family, and again one of their kids is still in high school and not out of the house. Pray for his wife Diana especially, they never got to say goodbye.
I know we all know this in the back of our minds, but also take this as another cautionary tale not to take anything for granted.

Hug your loved ones extra tightly tonight; we never know when they will be taken to be with the Lord.
