  2. Imagine what a shock it was to the parents. I think they would be too stunned to react quickly. They would have been in deep mourning for their baby and all of a sudden he is back from the dead...Jeez Louise. They don't think the baby's chances are too good. The poor parents may have to go through it all over again.
