Hello. My boyfriend of 17 years suffered an overdose 2 weeks ago. He now has an anoxic brain injury. He was never in a coma. And was on a vent for about 11 days. We removed the vent Sunday and his vitals are perfect. We have faith that he will return to us but the drs are telling us there is no hope. Im lost. Any advice, stories, and prayers would be greatly apprectiated
