    It is very sad. My prayer goes out to her family and friends. :(

    With each surgerythe physicians gain knowledge that will help them the next time. :)

    its too bad she wasnt able to survive post-op, but i hope they gained experience.

    i hope the family will be able to deal their loss, hopefully their next child will be a blessing to the family

    I have to say, virividox, I was upset by your comments in the other thread about how "it" was "freaky". I'm glad to see you are treating this situation with the respect it deserves.

    sorry my lack of eloquence offended you; i guess sometimes when i see things that scare me i express myself with terms that don't always go well with other people.

    i guess medical mysteries scare me!

    It was sad for me because I heard earlier today on a radio news bulletin that they the baby has survived and it was landmark op. Then this evening I went to the BBC website and read the news...

    I've never seen anything like that before but I'm glad they gave it their best shot. It bodes well for the next one surviving.

    That's fine. The pictures freaked me out as well. I just thought by say "its freaky looking" you lost sight that this was a baby, and not just an oddity. I can see that perception isn't true, so sorry for thinking of you that way.

    pretty cool that she almost made it

    it was too bad

    I woke up and heard that it would probably be successful

    things like this will soon become a thing of the past

    I sure hope that the couple has another baby, in good health though

    that's from an article from feb 5th on cnn.com

    i wish them the best, although how did they afford the surgery?

    One of the articles I read, and now cannot find, said that the operation was funded by a company (something similar I guess to what St Jude's Children's Hospital does) that pays for operations needed by children in 3rd world countries. Attempts like this, and the companies that fund them, is what makes it possible to not be totally ashamed of humanity, even in the face of the other stupid things we do.

    I'm sure the family continues to need prayer. How awful to lose your baby, and in such a terrible way!
