czetie: Does mitochondrial disease prevent her from using the Force?
hardinparamedic: MyRandomName: So Tufts is a fake hospital to you. Got it.Boston Children's Hospital is world renown for it's immunology, cancer, genetics, and metabolic disorder research and treatment team.Tufts is renown for it's Pediatric Trauma history.
Boojum2k: MyRandomName: cman: We are only hearing one side of the storyBefore everyone goes apeshiat lets remember that2 sets of doctors, 2 different opinions. Instead of state sanctioned kidnapping, how about a tiebreaker first.Two doctors enter, one doctor leaves.Thunderdome!
Rapmaster2000: Sounds like an episode of House. I'm sure it's been said, but why does no one ever suspect House? People have these crazy diseases and only House can fix them. It's like Murder She Wrote. Every time she comes to town somebody dies.

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Oh, and then there's the upsetting prevalence of "there's something wrong with my child" claims that are answered with "well, you can start by not abusing them physically".
LowbrowDeluxe: Almost every time we've ever had a case anywhere similar to this we get a couple of days of OMG OUTRAGE HOW DARE THEY DOWN WITH THIS SORT OF THING and then it turns out the parents are giant humungous massive scumbags of one order or another.
justtray: Over in two.I'm always siding with the Doctors barring facts that prove otherwise.On one hand we have people professionally educated and trained to diagnose disease. On the other we have a woman that faints in a court room, who is simply convinced her child has a very rare genetic disease, based on.... things.
MemeSlave: Ask Meg and Charles Wallace about mitochondrial disease.
MyRandomName: By the way, those of you claiming Boston Children's Hospital wins over Tufts because "fark you they do"...It's not like BCH has ever, EVER, been guilty of malpractice.http://www.boston.com/news/health/articles/2009/12/19/jury_finds_2_d oc tors_at_childrens_hospital_caused_boys_death/BCH is infallible apparently, but Tufts is wrong.Instead of a third opinion you are advocating for the State to be the Medical Doctor of the child as they are the ones choosing which opinion is valid and which is not.Instead of the state deciding which opinion is valid, let a third respected doctor to do so. The state has no medical training to make the necessary decision on which set of doctors is right.
MyRandomName: hardinparamedic: MyRandomName: Mitochondrial disease doesn't have different symptoms based on age.Which one? Do you even know what you're talking about?MyRandomName: Basically your argument is Tuft Hospital is full of shiat doctors. Got it.My argument is I am apt to believe a center world renown for metabolic disorders versus a center which does not specialize in it. Nothing more, nothing less. Stop putting words in my mouth and attributing them to me, ass.That is the basis of your argument. Again, 2 sets of doctors, 2 opinions. Get a third. You dont get to pick and choose which doctor is to be trusted more. Medicine doesn't work that way. Get a third opinion. It would stop the whole mess fairly quickly, don't you think?A 3rd independent analysis by a respected doctor would end the whole mess. Why is that not even a consideration in your book? This issue could have ended a year ago.
beaverfetus: it's a small point but I think what a lot of medical people are thinking is a "set of doctors" isn't really a thing. They have like 30 genetics folks at Boston Childrens, and literally hundreds of internal medicine attendings there. I'm sure first, second, third and fourth opinions have already been obtained. Munchhausen by proxy is a diagnosis of last resort for pediatricians.
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Rapmaster2000: Sounds like an episode of House. I'm sure it's been said, but why does no one ever suspect House? People have these crazy diseases and only House can fix them. It's like Murder She Wrote. Every time she comes to town somebody dies.Who would continue to live in the town that Murder She Wrote lived in? At least there was an explanation for why people continued to live in Sunnydale.
justtray: Mr Boobieser? WTF#1, post - er
MyRandomName: And the other hospital was just doing procedures on the girl for shiats and giggles? One hospital good, other bad? Based on?
Ow! That was my feelings!: Ah, here ya go, ftfa:"The court really didn't accomplish much," said Mathew Staves of Liberty Counsel , a conservative organization that advocates for "religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family," who was at hearing.//that should clear it up.
