Lucky I Guess

Wow. The thickener was pushed on us by a children's hospital for our infant who had undergone open heart surgery and was found to be micro-aspirating. I was told I could no longer breast feed directly. It was frustrating, time consuming, and costly. It felt wrong, but I believed we were doing what was best because I trusted the medical professionals. I can not imagine how I would feel if my obedient actions had resulted in the death of my child.
My heart goes out to the parents whose lives have been needlessly and irrevocably altered by this product. The general public is made to feel that if a doctor reccomends something, it has been through rigorous testing to receive the approval of the medical community. What an alarming misconception.
