Aww, that's so sad!

I have the same thing written in my power of attorney for healthcare. I dont want my life prolonged UNLESS I am pregnant and there is a chance the baby could survive. I'm glad I already made the decision though, so that my family doesnt have to guess at what I would want.

oh my gosh-- what a difficult situation! I do think I would want my husband to do exactly what he is doing-- if I coul somehow provide life to my child, at least i would feel that something came from my death

Oh, how sad.

I told Mike before our first birthing that if anything happened to me, that I'd want them to wait until my milk came in so the baby could have that before they let me go. Were I in this situation, I would feel the same way. Mike thought it was creepy, but if there is any way to keep one death from becoming two, that would be my wish.

Wow. This poor family.
