Hospital to remove Houston man from life support

KTRK-13 posts an AP dispatch that checks in on Spiro Nikolouzos, who was mentioned in earlier blogHOUSTON posts:

A man in a persistent vegetative state whose family battled with a Houston hospital to stop his removal from life support is set to be removed from support Tuesday at a San Antonio hospital, his family said.

The family of Spiro Nikolouzos, 68, has vowed to keep him on life support and is trying to get him moved back to the nursing home where he was sent after leaving the Houston hospital. A nursing home official said Thursday they would take him back.

The nursing home will take him back and keep him on the life support his family wants. That doesn't seem particularly controversial.
