Tennessee hospital changes mind, will provide care for nine month old
Baby Gabriel Palmer was born prematurely with a club foot and pulmonary vascular problems, reports OneNewsNow. In October, his mom brought him back to the hospital because he was having trouble breathing. He responded to treatment by going into shock and developing pulmonary vascular disease. Since then, he has been on a respirator and medication.

Though Baby Gabriel is stable and doctors say he could live a long time, the East Tennessee Children's Hospital informed his mother that they may cease giving him medical care, which includes taking him off the respirator.

Neither the mother's complaints nor a letter sent by the ADF on her behalf changed the hospital's decision. Yesterday, the ADF filed a lawsuit against the hospital, which prompted the hospital's ethics board to change its mind and say the hospital will continue providing care to the child.

However, just to be safe, the ADF has not withdrawn the lawsuit until they have confirmation in writing that the hospital will continue treatment.
