The Doctors: Mom Desires DNR For 14-Year-Old Son
The Doctors said to try to imagine if your child was suffering from a condition that required you to put safe guards in place in the event that something life-threatening happened when you weren’t with them. What if your decision was to do nothing? One woman explained that her 14-year-old son, Alex, has Autism and is more like a small child mentally. He can’t show himself and can’t even tie his own shoes. When Alex was born, both of the valves in his heart had thickened, and the valves have had a “hard time keeping up” with his enlarged heart. Alex has both Autism and a critical heart condition.
