Unfortunately, Sam seems to have a version of trisomy 18 that makes it impossible for his brain to successfully stimulate and coordinate the activities of the respiratory tract. Are you sure? What would happen if you removed that air hose taped to his face? Have you tried it? Yes, once, for a few seconds. His lungs showed no signs of beginning to operate on their own. It would be inhumane to experiment on him by leaving the tube out for any longer period of time. He cannot breathe. But a majority never leave the hospital, never respond to the presence of others and die while still connected to the respirator.
What are the choices? Others choose to let the children die to spare the babies the pain of the ordeal. But there is no answer to that question. We cannot say whether your son will ever breathe on his own or look at you.
We can say only that the literature suggests the odds are stacked heavily against him. You and your wife had no warning during the pregnancy that the child might be genetically abnormal. You were offered the services of amniocentesis, a test that may have revealed his condition. You and your wife refused to have genetic testing done on the fetus because your wife opposes abortion on theological and moral grounds.
Knowing ahead of time that the child was genetically abnormal would not have provided any useful information. Genetic testing is done to allow parents the choice to abort fetuses with severe problems. But your wife would never abort her baby, so there was no point in having the tests performed. They help you think through the decision to remove the air tube.
They squirm with you, hesitating to give their opinions. In the end, they express support for your decision.
There seems to you both a difference between killing your baby and letting him die. You are letting Sam die. Your father gathers the family, nearly 20 adults and children, in the room. Everyone leaves. She hands him to you. She cannot bear to go through it.
Your brother and mother have offered to sit with you, but you decide it is something you must do alone. In some ways, apathy is symbolic death.
For people in this stage, Leach says, the smallest tasks can feel like the mightiest of efforts. This is the stage where physical activity starts to drop off. A person might stop cleaning themselves or even speaking to others. They withdraw even deeper into themselves.
People who have recovered from this stage have described feeling as though their mind was made of mush. Essentially, the brain switches to standby mode and a person loses any motivation whatsoever.
