A death after circumcision and a revision

A one month old baby from Pennsylvania died yesterday, January 2nd. It’s said he had a botched circumcision and a revision. It was said he had a UTI and was running a fever. And now he is not there anymore, and a family’s dreams are shattered.

Whether the procedures caused his death, or not, I’m sure the death certificate won’t tell. Infection, sepsis, systemic failure, will be the most likely causes mentioned.

It’s not our interest to mention the names, for the family it is time to grieve; but it is also not our interest to let this death be swept under the rug; the medical community needs to be held accountable.

Rest in peace sweet baby.
