Intensive Care Room [EOL in Art 71]

Elizabeth Layton – Intensive Care Room 

“This is the room where my son died. They had all these tubes…you know, terrible. There was always blood coming down. I couldn’t draw the face, so I put the pillow there. They gave him four gallons of blood. I had always given blood and I couldn’t wait till I could go again and give for somebody else. They wouldn’t take me because I was taking medicine for high blood pressure. I felt so helpless.”
