Don't dehydrate this life

As we know, Terri Schiavo is not only hungry but thirsty. I want to share some symptoms of dehydration, for public awareness

Symptoms of moderate to severe dehydration:

- low blood pressure
- fainting
- severe muscle contractions in arms, legs, stomach and back convulsions
- a bloated stomach
- heart failure
- sunken dry eyes, with few or no tears
- skin loses it's firmness
- lack of elacticity in the skin
- rapid deep breathing
- fast, weak pulse
- confusion
- coma

Symptoms of hunger as we know is just so painful, but I wanted to share about dehydration since the body cannot go without water for very long. Is this the death that may be passed by law to Terri Schiavo? Remember, she is not in a vegative state and is aware and very responsive.
