Baby Susan Anne Catherine Torres is Born, A Bittersweet ending.

Susan Torres being kept alive by machine for months has finally delivered her baby by C-Section.

At 8:18 a.m. yesterday Susan Anne Catherine Torres was delivered by Caesarean section at Virginia Hospital Center. The newborn weighed 1 pound, 13 ounces and was 13.5 inches long. There were no complications during delivery, and the baby appears healthy, said her uncle, Justin Torres. The hospital confirmed the birth and said the baby is being monitored in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Susan who had Cancer which spread to her brain and throughout her body succumbed around mothers day. Jason her husband has taken up vigil beside her bed while they waited for the baby to grow to a viable age.

In an effort to help pay for the medical expenses not covered by insurance, Jason came foward with her story and a plea for help.

He got tons of it, from all over the world. Checks came from Ireland and England, from an Alabama convent, from a soldier in Baghdad. Someone from Japan sent a box of cash, betting for a medical miracle, which, in a way, yesterday was.

Sometime today or tomorrow Susan will be unhooked from the machines which kept her heart beating and her lungs breathings, and allowed to be at rest.
