Thought you'd all like to see how cold and heartless the man is that wrote the preemie article. He basically told me that he's glad that Kathryn made it given the ridiculous amount of money that the "system" had to spend on her just to keep her alive. I can not even describe how his email response made me feel. See the attached below. Particularly the last few sentences. What a jerk.
"Thanks for the feedback. Sorry the article disappointed you. No matter how heartless it seems, people must and do make decisions about how to allocate health resources. If we spend billions of dollars trying to save babies who have little or no chance of survival, then we taking resources away from other patients who have much better chances of survival. We spend more on medical care than any nation on earth, but still don't have enough. UAB Hospital filled up last week, taking no more patients. The emergency room was swamped, too. Same thing happened at St. Vincent's Hospital. Those are just cold, hard facts, but behind these statistics are emotionally charged stories about people struggling for survival. I certainly am glad that your baby lived, particularly given the amount of money, effort and care that we as a society have expended on your child. I pray that God continues to bless her.
