Having a son (30yrs now) with the most severe form of CP (yet brilliant) who is dependent on a trach/mist/o2/feeding tube and other medical care.

I have designed a self how to program for him if this type of selective health care is passed.

We were trained by the best Stanford U ect in grants to communicate (I am his interperator 30yr now) and all his daily care is about hygiene and other things I can do and have done on my own at home.

Docs (God Bless them) have taught me to do (over the years) procedures and tricks of their trade that would normally require day surg or if not done ended his life due.

So I WILL be able allow my son to live albiet without the medical equip and meds ect it would mean his care would take all day as opposes to 4-5 shifts it requires now and he would be less able do to time restraints to go to all his outside of home social events.

But Yes we Will survive.
Before having private ins. back when he was an infant -6yrs I did this kind of care and I just talked to a woman who lost her CP brother in Mexico due to a stomach issue had I met her a year ago I could have gave her Mom some tricks that awesome Docs have taught me.

The other thing I am trying to find out if is fact/fiction is Ezekial Emmanual is claiming to have sister with CP (dont know how severe) so that is suppose to prove he would not have the intent with his ethics to allow the disbaled to die off.

A freeper said that there is no sister in the Emmanual family.

Can anyone verify this?

My point being for those who have severely physically disabled loved ones the Govt Health plan (God willing it will tank before getting lift off) should not be fearful that thier life is going to be ended by the Govt it means you will have to sacrafice enormously and selflessly as God aims us all to do to care for that loved one.

Thanks for sharing that. My heart and prayers go out for those who are called to give so unselfishly to the disabled.

May our Lord continue to bless you and yours.
