Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
This weekend we undertake a medical procedure on our 15 year old we call tiny Tim because he is. Nurses and the doctor will be on call for this procedure that our oldest son had at age 12 that took 8 days in the hospital. It cured him to this day but this procedure is no longer covered by insurance since it has been newly deemed by insurance companies as being observational and elective.

As for Tim he has had 3 major challenges in his life and they have all been political/religious related. At birth we had paid for the freezing his stem umbilical cells but it was canceled at the last minute because of a executive decision of the Catholic board members that very week. Second he was expelled from kindergarten because we could not prove his vaccine record due to the pediatric hard drive crash that took 45 days to reconstruct. And now this. If we could afford a Mercedes we could afford this procedure in the hospital out of pocket but we can't without pulling his brother out of college.

Still we are thankful Tim has not suffered sepsis or dangerous weight loss but has been out of school all this year. His misery is profound but he should have a complete recovery except for all the joie d'vivre he has missed for years.

This holiday may be the first he may be able to enjoy this decade.
He hates hugs but at least soon they will not be painful.
