As I posted on another thread:
If what we are being told by the media is true, this is not even close to the Terri Schiavo case. Terri was very much alive and this poor soul is not. The family needs psychological help, and as a mother I cannot even imagine what they are going through. I’d lose my mind if I lost one of my babies. I can’t help but think that they are demanding this because of their own guilt. This child underwent surgery for a problem that could have possibly been eliminated by healthy eating and exercise. If weight loss did not alleviate the problem then the surgery could have been considered. This family wanted a quick fix, but anesthetizing a small body and then carving out body parts comes with a lot of risks. I’ve also noticed that they don’t want to take her home and take care of her, they want her in a facility. They want somebody else to take care of the child. This whole case is heart breaking and disturbing.
What I find deeply disturbing is the phrase, “This family wanted a quick fix.” The family made their decision on the advice of two doctors. Many people have carpal tunnel surgery on the basis of what a doctor says, when all it takes to fix it is two chiropractic adjustments - one in the wrist, and another in vertebra #2. Taking a doctor’s advice is not always the best course of action, but how many laymen are aware of that fact?
