My friend sadly lost her child through cot death recently.
She was talking to me about what happened after the death and says that there was a metal rod/tube that had been attached to her child's leg after they had got to the hospital. She says that she never asked what it was or why it was there but she still wonders.
I've done a search on the internet but cannot find any explanation. Can anyone suggest what this might be? I think it might bring her some comfort.
