If he does improve to the level that he could go home, then his parents would be caring for him and he wouldn't be costing the health care system so much money.
If the Isaiah May is not given the 90 day injunction, truly a tragedy would be done.
Today's Calgary Sun article by Katie Schneider:
As their baby fights for his life, a Rocky Mountain House couple are about to battle Alberta Health Services and Edmonton’s Stollery Children’s Hospital who want to take their son off the machines helping keep him alive.
Rebecka and Isaac May will be in court in Edmonton Tuesday to try to get a 90-day injunction to keep their three-month-old son, Isaiah, on life support.
After Isaiah was born Oct. 24 with severe oxygen deprivation and had to be airlifted to Stollery hospital for treatment, doctors told his parents he was brain dead.
“They said he would never move, his eyes wouldn’t dilate,” Isaac said.
But as the little boy remained on life support, his parents thought things were looking up as Isaiah began to gain weight and show signs of improvement.
Then last Wednesday they received a letter from Alberta Health Services stating his diagnosis was unchanged and that the hospital would be withdrawing life support on Jan. 20, prompting the couple to take the matter to court to fight for their son’s life.
“He’s doing everything they said he wouldn’t,” Rebecka said.
“We believe he will keep improving and we just want to give him more of a chance.”
“We believe every life is a life worth fighting for.”
Holding her baby in her arms at the hospital, she continues to be optimistic.
“I will fight for him until I can’t fight for him,” she said.
“Because I love him.
“As a parent you always want to hope.”
