SecretAgentWoman: There is no guarantee yet she'll get lungs before she dies.

But honestly, shoehorning too-big adult lungs into a child that may not even be able to use them to leave an adult or even possibly an OLDER child to die is so much more humane, right?

I grieve for the child and parents, but truly, medicine is not perfect, and life sometimes sucks. A line has to be drawn somewhere, and kicking others down to claw your way over them is not really in the spirit of life.
