Most Helpful Guy

  • Dying one for me. It's kind of sad to miss the birth of a grandchild, but the grandchild is going to be around, as well as the parents. Death means I'm close to never seeing my child again, every last moment with him/her is going to be tick-tocking its way towards the permanent state of never seeing my child again.

    Put another way, I can live with myself if I missed the birth of my child. I can't live with myself if I skipped that opportunity to say goodbye in order to witness a grandchild being born.

Most Helpful Girl

  • The dying one. I'll get to spend a lot more time with my grandchild, I'll only be able to spend one more week with my child before I'll never see them again.

  • Dying one, no contest. There can always be another chance to say hello but not another chance to say goodbye.

  • To the One dying defiantly. I know it sucks to miss a birth but I have countless friends who have missed births of their own children because they were deployed. Its a common occurrence in my job. I have about 4 or 5 guys just in my platoon that has had the misfortune of that happening just on my last deployment. So I would go to the one I would never see again and stay with them as long as I could.

  • Both scenarios involve tears so it's a coin toss. A coin toss solves everything with no bias.

  • You'll never get another chance to see or speak to your dying child. It's a simple choice and I see most people chose correctly.
