Not too long ago I spoke to Rita and things were looking like her son had a fighting chance with his rare blood disease. There was light at the end of the tunnel and the possibility that in a few weeks he might come home. That all changed yesterday. Matthews lungs collapsed and the doctors said they have done all they could do. Rita and her ex husband had a hard decision to make – pull the plug or just wait it out and hope for a miracle. They decide to relieve their son of all his pain and pull the plug. They laid in bed with him until he passed away.
What a hard choice to make as a parent! I am not sure what I would have done, but I am glad that there son is no longer in pain.
