my baby sarah fought brilliantly against all odds but she could not tolerate the hospitalized infection(septicemia)and died on 8th nov 09.she was admitted for caffeys symptoms but got infected,drs says this that,but i would say one thing before admission drs should know the patient or else why they have admitted my kid,simply to study the case or they dont want to loose study material.end of the day i have lost my darling.
