Remember the 528LB Mom?

You may remember when I posted about a 528-lb woman who gave birth to a baby girl.

The great news is that she gave birth to a healthy 6lb baby girl.

The sad news is that 5 months after giving birth, the mom, Victoria Lacatus, developed a high fever and eventually succumbed to a heart attack.

Hopefully, that baby girl will one day know that not only did her mother risk her life to have her but also that she was a sick woman who couldn't save herself to take care of the thing she loved the most. I just hope that the family makes sure she knows just how much her mom loved her and what she risked for her.

I still think it was too risky for her to get pregnant, but I'm glad the baby was born healthy.
