I just can't imagine how painful this must have been . . . http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-boy-homicide-web-may17,0,7404667.story Bedsores 'bone-deep' despite 24-hour care by 2 licensed nurses Jaylen Brown needed round-the-clock care, and the 13-year-old developmentally disabled boy with cerebral palsy was supposed to have it. His mother had the help of two licensed practical nurses to care for her son seven days a week at their South Side home. And yet the boy died Thursday of complications from "bone-deep bedsores" that the Cook County Public Guardian called a "a disgusting case of neglect" that a number of people should have seen before it was too late. The boy's death has been ruled a homicide, with the cause being blood poisoning from neglected severe bedsores, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
