SilentStrider: She's got the crazy eyes though.
AbbeySomeone: I've seen people go through the chemo and radiation. They still died, just slowly and in more pain. Prolonging a life of agony is never nice and there is no guarantee that this will cure him.
SilentStrider: Yeah ok, I'll give you cute.She's got the crazy eyes though.
OtherBrotherDarryl: Potentially, death will lower a person's IQ even more.
BarkingUnicorn: Props to the doc who likened radiotherapy to "frying the brain."
namatad: She has investigated natural remedies abroad.Yup too stupid to live.
ToxicMunkee: I had gamma knife radiation on my brain tumor and it didn't fry anything but the tumor. So that was nice.
GAT_00: She's clearly not fit to be a parent. Take custody away from her.
DMMidwest: Yes, the boy will probably have some cognitive impairment after the procedure. It may well work and he'll recover, with some changes. My best friend's son had cancer at age 9, and now in his 20s, there's no question that his very capable and bright mind was affected. Hearing loss. Stunted growth. Rendered sterile. Diminished social skills. But, he is alive, and quite thoroughly functional. His parents recognized this risk and that as a survivor, their kid would be unlikely to be the same afterward. Proved true. Frustruating, to be sure.But he is alive.
cretinbob: He's English, how much lower can his IQ go?
dickfreckle: You're "not bonkers," yet you named your son "Neon?"
Mister Peejay: dickfreckle: You're "not bonkers," yet you named your son "Neon?"Hey now, that's a fine name. Noble, even.
Gawdzila: Sure she's cute.. but stupid. Very stupid.
wildcardjack: He's seven. This is a perfect age for a little brain trauma since he's at peak neuroplasticity.Reminds me of an anti-vaccer co-worker who claimed vaccines made his kids retarded. After I met his wife I realized that maybe it was a genetic issue, she was totally introverted.
Slaxl: BarkingUnicorn: Props to the doc who likened radiotherapy to "frying the brain."I'm gonna have to go ahead and assume that that is not what he said, rather he gave a detailed and technical explanation of what's involved and she translated it in her head to "frying the brain". Although I wouldn't bet a lot on that, I still think it's more likely.
Molavian: wildcardjack: He's seven. This is a perfect age for a little brain trauma since he's at peak neuroplasticity.Reminds me of an anti-vaccer co-worker who claimed vaccines made his kids retarded. After I met his wife I realized that maybe it was a genetic issue, she was totally introverted.Yeah, reminds me of a guy I work with whose kids have issues. He's a flaming nutcase, like tinfoil hat conspiracy theorist nuts. Of course, no correlation in his mind at all.
simplicimus: Anybody suss out what country this took place in?
namatad: namatad: She has investigated natural remedies abroad.Yup too stupid to live.and before the natural tards show up, I have NO problem with you using natural remedies yourself, but when you insist on using them on your kids? well you should be charged with attempted murder or murder when they die.
