I know the mom personally, she didn't do anything. So how about you shut up since you don't know what you're talking about. She's a great mom and has done everything to try and get the baby back to full health because of that ass hole. So take your comment and go kick rocks "patchreader"

Word to the wise... Please try to control your profanity when commenting, otherwise it makes you look like an angry individual who lashes out at anyone for anything. Perhaps, as Common Sense Rules says, you could take some Selective Serotonin ReUptake Inhibitors to calm you down. Nothing wrong with giving someone your opinion or piece of mind, but you don't have to be a Jerk about it.
