I agree, it is heartbreaking. You’ve reminded me of a patient we had who needed a kidney transplant but because he lived in a foster home with very little support, they could not place him on the list to receive a kidney. I understand why the guidelines are there for the child’s sake and now I also understand how this can help doctors with the stress of making these decisions. It gives them a framework in very difficult situations. At the time this information was new to me and caused a great deal of distress.
