    ORLANDO, Fla. —

    This poor baby!! Thankfully the nursing staff were able to save this 'lil one.
    I'm curious to know why this baby was hospitalized in the first place. When confronted by police she eventually told them that she did it because she didn't want her baby to suffer anymore.

    It sounds similar to other cases of MBP......

    An emergency custody hearing has been set for Friday. It will be interesting to see if any family shows up with a request for custody.

    Sounds like another case of Munchhausen by proxy to me (and I am by no means suggesting this should excuse the behavior). The child was hospitalized repeatedly.
