Default We're ending support.

Probably on Wednesday we'll be taking Jacob off of all of his medications and life support. He'll die anytime within a few hours to a few days. He is in a vegetative state and has pretty much no neurological response. His organs didn't recover so he wouldn't make it through heart surgery. Prolonging it is just putting him through stuff he doesn't need to go through, but I can't help but feel that I am murdering my child.

Melissa, YOU ARE NOT MURDERING YOUR CHILD! Technology has kept his body going, long after his spirit returned to heaven. The mysteries of our Earthly life are not for us to understand, but for us to accept and endure. You are doing what is right for your child. I cannot imagine the pain and grief that you must feel, but know that there is a reason for this test of your faith. Know that lots and lots of prayers are being offered up for you and your family, from all of us. We are here for you however you need us.

Melissa,

You are not murdering your child. He has already gone to be with God
and the Angels...only the machines are keeping his physical body here.
I can only imagine how difficult all of this has been for you and your family but
it is the right thing to do. May God's blessings be with you all.

Melissa,
I am so very sorry to hear the news. Jacob is in Heaven already. His body is just here. Letting him go is hard but you will see him again. Heaven is a better place. I have been praying for you and if you need something, we are all here for you. I'm so sorry.

Melissa, that is where medical science has gone to far. I hate it that parents have to make such decisions that God has made. I know life support helps sometimes...not very many! Sweety we are all here praying for you to have the strength to get through this. Baby Jacob is in Heaven and remember he is in no pain. There are no more tears in Heaven and someday you and I will be in Heaven holding our boys. Life here is not forever, just keep telling yourself that it is not the end and you will see him again in a healthy state and he will look into your eyes and be pure.
We all love you and are praying.
God bless, Christy

Melissa, (another post..I just want to help)
When you think you cannot handle anymore, you go grab Quinton, look into his eyes and hold him close. That is how I got through my hardest moments after losing my son. Looking at my daughter gave me hope and let me KNOW I had to keep breathing. My daughter was only 1 1/2 year old and she depended on me to stay strong for her. I am thankful you have Quinton, he will help you. Take care and know we are all here.

Melissa, I'm so sorry for the sorrow you are going through. I can't really add anything to what's already been said - it's all true. Be strong for your family even though your heart is breaking. They need you.
