• The very evening before Gilbert's death, these typed notes state that he was playing with other children and sitting up in bed.  (Does this sound planned? The handwritten notes indicate that Gilbert was playing in bed at around noon, not in the evening)
  • The night before his death his temperature is NORMAL
  • Handwritten bedside notes state that Gilbert was comatose at 10:30 a.m. the day of his death.
  • The typed notes state that at 10:30 a.m. Gilbert was drinking water and then vomited, and began to take a turn for the worse.  How can Gilbert on the handwritten bedside notes be comatose while on the typed notes be drinking water?
  • At 6:30 a.m. the day of Gilbert's death, it is noted in the typed notes that Gilbert became extremely restless followed by periods of quiet.  It is noted in the handwritten bedside notes that Gilbert was constantly tossing about on the bed and answered yes when asked if he had a headache.  Yet, no temperature was taken from 4:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.  WHY?
  • According to the written Bedside Notes, Gilbert was removed to Albany Hospital because he was comatose.  At this time, according to the notes they were still waiting for Dr. Haverly, who was notified at 7:45.  It appears that the doctor never came to either the infirmary or to the hospital.  WHY?  The doctor only lives a short distance from the hospital.
  • How was Gilbert taken to the hospital?  Was he driven in a car by the nuns?  Was an ambulance called?  If they left the orphanage at 10:45 a.m., why did it take so long to get to the hospital?   Albany Hospital, Medical Record Librarian, writes in the letter to the superintendent  of St. Colman's: "As you know this child died approximately five hours after admission".  
  • The weather for that day was fair with no serious weather conditions.  It should have only taken at the most one hour to get to the hospital.  That would bring us to 11:45 a.m. by the time of reaching the hospital.  Then if we are to believe the time of death was approximately 5 hours after admission, this would set Gilberts death at 4:45 or even 5:00 p.m.  This leaves us an hour or so before of the death certificate which states 4:00 p.m. and an hour after which the typed notes states that the doctor from Albany Hospital called the superintendent of St. Colman's after six to inform them of Gilbert's death.
