He Died Less Than 48 Hours After Being Born.My brother Christopher, didn't live to be 2 days old. He was born in december, but he was due in march. He was very pre-mature. We were Living in connecticut, and my mom gave birth at waterbury hospital. My mother, father, and brother were air lifted to Yale Hospital. My Mom had two choices to make, either keep him on machines to help breathe for him, and help his heart beat, or take him off all machines. He was on a bunch of machines for 32 hours. When the doctors came back the next day, she told them to take him off the machines. they did, and she held Christopher in her arms, a half an hour later he died. Months later, after the autosopy was done and everything, my mom's doctor told her, that she did the right thing in taking him off the machine, He was suffering, and there was nothing that could have been done. I was just 2 years old, but there are times, I have dreams, about being my grandparents at a hospital, and I see everyone crying. I know that is how it was that dark day in December 1990.
