1. Your living will does not have to state that you want to be pulled from life support! You can state that you want to be kept alive for as long as possible.

2. I would not expect to be pulled from life support after only being kept on support systems for only one day of being brain dead, as that boy was. A reasonable length of time must necessarily go by before such a decision can be made. When assigning a loved one your health care proxy, you shold discuss matters such as these - and NEVER give the proxy to someone you don't trust to follow your wishes.
