All the doctors and nurses were crying and were just great at their jobs and very caring towards the family. I felt bad for them as well. It must be a difficult job to tell a mother that after she gave birth. They deserve a lot of credit.
That desicion to use the body for research has to be a tough one. I salute them for it. Can't imagine being in that position.
