What an awful situation. I don't think I could forgive my family for letting me have such a surgery, but this isn't my family so I hope everything works out for the little guy.

Do you have kids? Would you just let them die because they didn't have limbs? That's a horrible thought. It is going to be tough, but he can overcome this and go on to do great things.

I don't have a clue what I would have done if I had been in that situation as a parent, but I do believe he would have been better off to allow to as one comment said, "go peacefully". Maybe God has a tremendous work for this little guy here---our prayers are for and with him and the family.

This is so sad, but I have children with disabilities and I firmly believe that they have them for a reason and that God has some big plans for how they can use their disabilities to glorify Him and help others, so I am praying that God reveals His plans for that special little boy and comforts him and his family.

I live here in Oologah and I have seen the heartache that it has caused and I would never what that for any parent. I have a daughter and I don't know what I would do if it was my little girl in the hospital in that little boys shoes. I hope that they can find the strength and courage to get them through these trying times to come.

I wonder if those who've mentioned just letting him die are pro-life or not. I think that this little guy is so lucky to have a loving family and medical staff in his corner. He has fought off this infection like a champ. Now he will get through this new challenge and I look foward to seeing and hearing of his progress. Hang in there, kid! You're an inspiration to many!

I can't believe how heartless some of you are! They took him off life support and he survived. He was supposed to live. This is part of Jeremiah's purpose. As terrible as this is now, God is going to use this little boy in big ways! God will give his family strength to help him. The ones that said his family "should've let him go peacefully" do not understand the meaning of faith, the work of miracles or the power of prayer! Keep on fighting Jeremiah--we are lifting you and your family up in our prayers!

Please name me one thing that God is going to use this precious child for, who loss his arms and legs? Not to mention all the other disabilities that will come from this meningitis illness.

Just name me one thing, elayana.......one simple thing! Obviously you can't,so why don't you start using your Bible for humanitarian reasons, instead of self guilt?

You're speaking of your spirit and not his, and you're kit complete. How much spirit would you have without your arms or legs?

PLEASE, you must not have any children. If it were my child there would be no way I would let him die just because he wont have the use of arms or legs. If he was going to be in a permanent comatose state or something like that maybe it would be different. Plenty of people live normal, fulfilling lives without arms or legs or both. Not to mention there are things called prosthetics. This little boy deserves that chance. He can be an inspiration to anyone going through the same situation or families of those like him. I am sure the parents of the children who died during this outbreak would much prefer to have their babies here, even without any limbs. Maybe you could be a little more sensitive to this family's situation, and not speak about something you could have no possible way of understanding without having gone through it. Just my opinion.

First off, let the family be and pray for their decisions that they had to make, because I don't think any of us would want to make them. There is a future for this child and God is the only one that knows what that is. Godspeed Jeremiah your town is behind you 100%
