Susan's baby

Just wanted to give everyone an update on Susan Torres, the brain-dead woman who was being kept on life support for the last few months, for the slim chance that her unborn child would have enough time to develop.

As you may have heard on the news, Susan delivered a healthy baby girl on Tuesday! Named after her mother, baby Susan was born three months premature, weighing 1 pound, 13 ounces, and is being cared for in neonatal ICU. The baby has a very good chance of survival.

Susan was taken off life support yesterday. One can only imagine the grief of the husband, but at least now he can take a baby daughter home.

Thank you everyone for your prayers and support for this family who has suffered so much.
