On the surface, the Lafayette conflict appears to be between a wife who is ready to let go and a mother who refuses to give up hope. Those who have followed the story closely, however, are raising flags about who truly has Joshua Barras' best interests at heart. Social

Let the mom pay the medical bills.

His wife may not be the best role model in the world, but it looks like she is pushing for the right thing in this situation

After the Terri Schiavo case I made a living will giving my parents control over decisions if I am incapable. My marriage wasn’t bad but it made me realize that my parents have unconditional love for me & will always have my best interest no matter what.

For those wondering the guy in the vegetative state tried to hang himself with a shoelace while in jail thus giving him brain damage and leaving him in a vegetative state.

Wives are first in line for a reason.

Mom needs to make her peace.
