    I cant seem to get it paste, but plent of articles out there on the young girl. Basically,she went in for routine tonsillectomy (though something related to obesity and OSA), and ended up with cardia arrest. Eventually being declared brain dead. The family wants to trach and PEG her and set her up in a facility, and the hospital says no. They won't operate on dead body.

    Sad case.

    I've been sort of following the story. I believe the MDs made the right decision but I can't help but feel for the family.

    It is heartbreaking. May God be with all involved. No matter what happens there will be no winners.
