Jeff Conaway May Be Taken Off Of Life Support Today

Jeff Conaway, 60 is still in a coma and may be taken off of life support today reports RadarOnline.

A source close to the situation says, "Doctors advised the family that Jeff has had no brain function since he was brought into the hospital. The feeding tube has already been removed. The ventilator which is breathing for Jeff, will be removed sometime this afternoon. Jeff is in no pain whatsoever."
The former Grease star was found unconscious at his home on May 11 and was taken to the Encino Hospital Medical Center. Initially, it was thought that he had overdosed on prescription drugs, but later it was revealed he was suffering from pneumonia and sepsis. He later slipped into a coma.
Conaway, 60, rose to fame playing one of the T-Birds in the 1978 film adaptation of Grease. Later that year, he co-starred in the popular sitcom Taxi, as actor-turned-taxi-driver Bobby Wheeler, before leaving in Season 4. He later appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful and Babylon 5 in the '90s.

A source has said that no measures will be made to try and revive him once the breathing tube is removed.  Sad, so sad.....
