The doctor told my family that my grandmother had become septic which forced a second surgery and a move to the intensive care unit (ICU) for three weeks, where she had to be put on life support. Being septic causes all your organs to not to function properly or at all. The most frustrating part of this happening was not knowing why it happened and no one taking responsibility for it.

She told her how he had hit her when she was bad and when last weekend I was gone he had “tried to put his peepee in her peepee.” When I heard that I started to cry and told my aunt how he had been doing those things and more to me but I never thought he would do them to her. My aunt had a facial expression of “don’t worry I’m going to take care of this”, and she called my step grandma right away and told her what we said. They then picked up my mother and took us all to the hospital to get checked out. The doctor told her with great sympathy that there was no penetration on my sister but that there was some evidence of sexual abuse on both of us. I could see from my mother’s facial expressions that she had the whole time that she didn’t want to hear what the doctor was saying and there was going to be no sympathy from her what so ever.
Her mother still had to recover for a couple days in Alaska from her emergency caesarian. After arriving at the Seattle Children’s Hospital she was rushed into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. At first the doctors were talking about Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which is doctor speak for, “brittle bone disease.” So no one was allowed to hold her at all for a couple of days. Since then they’ve diagnosed her with Arthrogryposis, which is a doctor word for extremely stiff joints, and Hypotonia, extreme muscle weakness.

Great aunt Molly said to her sister she could not call an ambulance until she finished cleaning the floors. She never got to finish cleaning the floors because she died.

I was very surprised to find how many children have the obsessive compulsive disorder.

Euthanasia Euthanasia is a though that ponders in the mind of many everyday. Is it right, is it wrong, who can decide the value of a person's life?

In my o... ... middle of paper ... ...illness to die because of the emotional burden that succeeds death. By ending the life of the ill, you can no longer enjoy and spend time with the said loved one before their due time quickly approaches. The bottom line for these believers is that ending a life is playing the God role and even those who don’t believe in God believe nature must take its course. In the end, death is a concrete option for those who are suffering and do not see living life as an option any longer. Many see euthanasia as inhumane and religiously erroneous, but we must view this decision from the eyes of the suffering patient.
