Recently my cousin, Jason (34), ended up in the ICU after emergency surgery to repair the damage done after his colon/bowel burst. They removed part of his bowels,repaired the rest and cleaned out over 4 litres of waste. He's septic, fighting multiple infections in his chest/lungs and bowels, hooked up to tubes, and heavily sedated with a 24 hour around the clock nurse to care for him.
My question to you is, would you allow your children to visit him? Does their age matter? Does the type of relationship your children have with him (whether or not they're close with him...an uncle vs. their dad etc.) make a difference? I want honest debate. Please don't sugar coat your feelings/answers because of this horrible sensitive tragedy. I'm really torn and I want a good debate.
