A mother’s love trumps medical know-it-alls
Daily Inter Lake [Kalispell MT], by Frank Miele

Original Article

Posted By:davesenior, 12/29/2013 3:12:40 AM

One of the most heart-breaking medical tragedies of recent years occurred earlier this month when a 13-year-old girl woke up from surgery for a tonsillectomy,asked for a popsicle,and then started bleeding profusely from her mouth and nose, leading to a heart attack as a result of loss of blood[SNIP] When we see trained medical professionals reacting so coldly to the pleas and needs of a family in a medical crisis,it can only remind me of the warning of Sarah Palin and others of the danger of turning our most personal life-and-death decisions over to bureaucrats and functionaries.

It´s all about taking away the power of the individual and increasing the power of the collective.

Tragedy, but the cost of keeping her alive will be paid for by other hospital patients.

I expect 2014 to be nothing but one Obamacare horror story after another.In fact they want the horror stories to get out to get people conditioned to medical starvation.

One of the biggest things doctors are concerned about is the government coming between them and the patient.This whole idea of preventive medicine is a scam.The free annual check up with pack doctor´s offices with non sick people so there won´t be enough time to evaluate really sick people.The best preventative medicine is watching what you shove down your gullet.This is the type mandate that´s driving premiums up and won´t pay for itself.It´s really absurd that bronze plans are between $400-550 a month.

It is very sad and, from what I´ve heard, the hospital staff has been pretty cold (chasing the mom for organ donations less than 24 hours after her daughter was declared brain-dead...).

But the fact remains that her daughter has been declared deceased. I can´t think of anything worse for a mom, but the solution is not to have other people pay to keep her artificially alive.

Is this how it´s going to be now? Who ever creates the biggest media story gets extraordinary treatment, while the rest of us pay?

There have been instances where people, in the same situation as this girl, have recovered. I would do exactly the same thing as the mother, I would fight for ANY chance my child had.

As far as I can determine from the news stories, this girl is "brain dead", which means an absence of blood flow to the brain or any brain activity. You can not recover from this. The people that occasionally recover after many years are in a "persistant vegetative state", where there is brain activity, spontaneus respiration, ability to maintain body homeostasis,etc.... Think Terry Schiavo. Brain dead is a different animal. How sad.

As the writer says, it is the family´s decision what to do, not the hospital´s. That is the point. It may seem unreasonable and ridiculous to the rest of the world, but it is not anyone else´s decision. If they can pay for the care they want, who is the hospital to tell them they can´t receive that care?

I have experienced too many doctors who were wrong, about relatively minor things, to accept anything they say without question.

If the girl´s family has the money to keep the girl alive, then that should be their right, but if everyone else is required to pick up the expense, that is a different story.

2.

Frightening to know that the girl went into Children´s Hospital in Oakland for a simple overnight stay to have her tonsils removed and now it seems the hospital is taking no responsibility for the child´s life, and ignoring the parents´ wishes.

Tonsillectomy is a questionable procedure in the first place. Then it certainly looks like a botched operation. Is it any wonder that there are folks that prefer health freedom to the bureaucrat administered monstrosity that the Democrats are constructing.

If this situation had been handled with a little more compassion, I don´t think this would be happening. To sort of say "yep, she´s dead, flip the switch!" While the family is still in shock that a simple tonsillectomy is causing the death of their child was at the very least insensitive.

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and we have been flooded by this story for 17 days now. What is very interesting in this story is that the family has been refusing to allow the hospital to speak but has on every turn slandered the hospital in the media. What are they trying to hide???

What has been coming out in the last few days is that the family did not, I repeat, did not follow post op instructions to not allow the child to speak and continued to drag people in and out of her room having her speak with visitors.

What also is not being discussed here is that its not the hospital deciding that the child is dead but the law in the State of California that has declared the child dead. Six doctors have performed the prescribed tests and all six have declared her brain dead as has a judge.

This family has created a media circus calling news conference after new conference, calling for a march on the hospital and repeatedly slandered the hospital and its staff while refusing to allow them the ability to defend themselves. They have and continue to disturb other patients and their families with their media circus and various incidents including the uncle using a powered megaphone.

Their child has been dead for 17 days and they refuse to allow her a dignified end. This family also bears a certain amount of guilt in this child´s death as she was morbidly obese and rather than putting her on a diet decided surgery would solve her problems faster.

Rather than just believe this one news story do some research and see what the real truth is in the story and its not what her mother has been peddling to everyone with a microphone!

The family got a lawyer who forced the hospital to turn over the medical records. Of course there will be a big lawsuit. The last time a child died after a tonsillectomy at this hospital the payout for everyone but the hospital was over 4 million and the hospital´s separate payout was kept secret. I doubt the payout in this case will be as large because that child was brain-damaged and will need care for the rest of her life, but it will be big.

Whether the family is a bunch of gold-diggers or saints, a big lawsuit seems to be the only avenue of accountability for any family.

The media reports that the family is meeting the involved medical expenses by way of insurance. They don´t say, but it is doubtful that any private health care insurance company would pay for "medical care" that has been administered to a person who has been declared to be deceased by six medical professionals. That leaves only the public run "insurance" that is usually referred to as Medicaid, to now pick up the expenses and later demand reimbursement from the parents after they are settled up with by the doctors and the hospital.

I’ve written a couple of columns in a row on some of the more blatant attempts by liberals to shut down free and fair debate on topics ranging from climate change to Christianity.The techniques employed in this campaign range from name-calling (climate change “deniers,” war criminals, homophobes) to actual criminalization of thought [SNIP] Last week, we saw the big lie on full display, as politician after politician bent over backwards to promote the idea of equal pay for women.

The campaign to marginalize conservatives and their traditional values has many facets.Last week, we talked about the efforts in academia to restrict access to people whose beliefs are not in tune with modern liberalism, but that is just one small component of an ongoing multi-front war.Today, let’s focus on climate change and the effort by the left to lull you into peaceful acquiescence of a world view that will allow “people smarter than you” to make massive changes in our economy in order to protect you from an impending crisis.

What is it about liberals that makes them so afraid of free speech, free thought and free expression of ideas, especially on college campuses? You may have heard about the absolute terror which faculty and students at Rutgers University greeted the news that former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had been chosen as the commencement speaker at this May’s graduation ceremony. [SNIP]Conservatives, meanwhile, seem to be able to cope with the idea that liberals have differing opinions without trying to burn them at the academic stake.

The best show on TV last week wasn’t “The Walking Dead.” It wasn’t “Downton Abbey.” And it sure wasn’t “The Academy Awards.” [SNIP] No matter what else she has done before, or does after, former RT-America anchorwoman Liz Wahl should always be remembered and thanked for telling the truth about “the enemy within.” Wahl had spent the last two weeks feeding the Kremlin’s propaganda to her gullible American TV audience about the Ukrainian uprising and the Russian occupation of Crimea.

You have to hand it to Nancy Pelosi: She was dead-on accurate when she claimed Congress had to pass Obamacare before we would find out what was in it. The latest case in point is the “Shared Responsibility Payment,” which appears in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but hasn’t been widely appreciated for its Orwellian genius until the IRS started to promote it this year. The “Shared Responsibility Payment” is the penalty U.S. citizens have to fork over to their federal overlords if they fail to accede to the government’s order that they purchase health insurance for themselves

Chalk one up for the good guys — well, sort of. After a week of mockery, derision, and disdain, the Federal Communications Commission has announced that it won’t put observers in newsrooms after all. FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai’s op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Feb. 10 had alerted the public to the dangers of having government representatives querying news bosses about how they decide what stories to cover — and which ones not to cover. The implicit threat of such heavy-handed research is that the government could be on the verge of announcing that IT will decide what stories are important to

I first wrote about the slow but steady progress of Iran toward becoming a nuclear power in December 2007, and then followed up in 2010.

But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
