Brain death

What a wonderful, thorough, and compassionate explanation of what is a tragic situation on a number of levels. I experienced the same "déjà vu" as you did when reading about what is happening at Oakland Children's having been through this too many times with too many families in my past career in the ICU. My best wishes for a resolution to this situation for both the family, the health care providers, and the child as soon as possible.
