Another one

Another baby died on Friday from ARPKD. It was a mother I have been emailing recently. The doctors had given the baby no hope and the mom had not had amniotic fluid since about 20 weeks. But I was still trying to be hopeful. And I was trying to give this mom some semblance of hope. The thing is the doctors had no hope. And didn’t even really try to save the baby.  Which is just so frustrating to me. I know that every parent needs to make their own decision when the doctors say there is nothing they can do. But why do the doctors even need to say there is nothing they can do.  Why can’t they try as hard as they can to save these babies? Why can’t they do everything in their powers to save these babies? It is just so frustrating to me. And so very sad.
