Prompt for December 18, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

She held his hand, his warm but oddly lifeless hand, as she looked into his eyes. The pupils were large and she was convinced that if she could just look a little closer she would see her husband there. The husband whose body now lay in front of her, hooked up to a dozen machines, each one saying a lot, but explaining nothing. His eyes looked like they were drying out so she put a couple drops of fake tears into his eyes to keep them moist. If she closed his eyes he would open them so she knew he was in there, locked in a body that wouldn’t respond. What had happened when he was at work last week and what wasn’t the company telling her?
