Well, that's what makes the world go round. We all have our own opinions. I personally think it shows a lack of compassion, and I wouldn't send a love one to that hospital under any circumstance. I'm curious to know, as you say, "that this information is typically provided" when a child is dx, if the majority of parents on CWD were told or not. When my daughter was dx, all the training was done in her hospital room, and she was there lying in the bed. I think it would have been in very poor taste if they started talking about all potential complications and horrors in front of her. But, again, that's just me, if another parent doesn't mind that info said in front of their child, then who am I to say how to raise your child.
