    Default Help from everyone

    So, some of you are on my FB page, some of you aren't-give me a shout if you are on there. Anyway, on Monday I heard from my best good friend (a Gump reference), who is practically my sister. Her 2 year old nephew was found floating in a pool. He had been there for 5 minutes or so. He was airlifted to a hospital and was found w/minimal brain activity, on a respirator, and would not respond to a light. 3 doctors said he was brain dead. His parents had to make several tough decisions. They decided to donate his organs and disconnect the plug. Needless to say, everyone associated it devastated.

    To be honest, I did not know the child. But the whole situation upsets me to no end-partly b/c my friend is hurting and partly b/c it is a horrible situation but also b/c I have no idea how I'd react if I were in this situation. Last I heard, the parents signed the forms and it could take up to 36 hours to find donors before it can be all said and done. Then comes the financial issues and the funeral issues. I don't know what faith/religion or anything like that any of you are, but if you could keep them in your thoughts and prayers, I'd appreciate it.

    Wow...I just can't even imagine losing a child.

    Having a late miscarriage was bad enough.

    every parents fear. Sucks hearing about things like this, hopefully the parents can find the inner strength to get them through this.

    I agree-my wife and I had two early ones, but nothing could compare to this. It ruins my night/day thinking about it. I got the text the funeral/visitation will be on Saturday. Thankfully my boss is cool enough to let me off of work. I can only imagine what the parents are going through. My friend said her nephew asked where his brother was/is.

    I just don't even have words...it's so tragic. I live in fear all the time having a pool and a toddler. We are FANATICAL, and everyone who comes to our house must be too, about keeping the gates locked (it's impossible, at least right now for him to unlock them), and also doors locked while we're in the house. He's never outside alone. Period. However, I'm not naive enough to think that something couldn't happen. It terrifies me and I know a lot of people think I'm overprotective where my child is concerned but...it only takes a second.

    I'm so sorry you're hurting. I'm sure you'll be a great source of strength for your friend and her family. Praying for all who are affected by this.

    growing up my siblings and I always wanted a pool...my mom too but my dad was always staunch in his position: no pool. He said he would never have a moment's peace because he'd be so afraid of an accident.

    This is awful stuff. love and prayers heading out.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Like I said on FB. Prayers are continuing to go out. I went through my neice dying from SIDS back in '89. My brother, possibly the strongest person I know mentally, was just crushed. I've never seen him that defeated before, or since. So I have an inkling of understanding, but nothing I say will make it better. Just know that I'm here if you need to talk, my friend.
