In your personal opinion I want to know what you think of me and the choice I made. This is something that I constantly get judged on by one of my ex friends and even though we don't talk anymore I am constantly hearing the he said she said crap about how I am a horrible mom.
Anyway, in 2007 my first son was born and we quickly found out that he had spinal meningitis. After months in the hospital everything kept getting worse and worse and then we found that he has Mitochondrial disease as well. This is a disease that cause a deficiency of oxygen to your muscle which allows you muscles to work (on a short note). My son will be 3 in October and he says a few words, he doesn't walk, he doesn't sit up, he doesn't crawl, and he eat through a g-tube, as well as has a special diet due to severe seizures. He has 8 therapists that he see's weekly and it currently take 3 people around the clock to care for him. *more in comment

Sometimes being a Mom is the hardest job on Earth. Making choices that will effect your child and his care is up to you and his doctors. I bet that she-devil has never faced such a choice as you had to make. I am happy you feel your son is in a stable place with constant care. Hugs.
