Well I'm a little disappointed in the narrow-minded responses of "just pull the plug". Regardless, I understand its just a TV show, House did an episode with a patient in locked in syndrome. Episode 5x19 in that they used a brain computer interface, that looks like it took a lot of effort for little return. If it was me I would start asking the doctors to do deep brain stimulation or ECT, in hopes that electricity can help open up some of the damaged passageways. There is a good tech talk about how ECT is used here. Realistically her brain is probably going to have to learn to re-wire and understand how it needs to communicate with the rest of the body again.

Best of luck!
