Talking about every one of the kids having multiple health issues, really bad, serious issues, my hope is that they thoroughly examine each of the kids, both mentally and physically. Wouldn't it be wonderful if each child had many issues wiped off of their slate and can live a life of happiness and leave fear behind??? I don't know how many of the kids are old enough to understand the labels their mother has put on each one but if they understand anything about their health issues I hope that the issues just *aren't there*. Watching Joshua and Bethany *dying* for soooooo long and then being told they are NOT dying has to eventually make them question in their own minds if maybe they aren't as sick as they were told. I know for me I would be scared to death that I might die if I had brothers and sisters who were dying. They maybe never spoke up but I wonder if they were scared not only for their sister and brother dying but if they would die also. I'd like to see each of those kids be told that there was not as much wrong with them as they were led to believe. I know, wishful thinking but still, they all have so much wrong with them according to Kate that it would just be a relief to know some are ok or more ok than previously thought..<quoted text>
The doctors were hearing the kid's symptoms from Kate. The doctors are responsible for not really doing lots of dx work when things were getting worse for Joshua. She wrote about calling for more or new meds all the time because Joshua was having problems. No hospice was ever able to meet her needs because they controlled the meds and made the decisions so we heard the Joshua was too medically complicated. The specialists were often in Portland and consulted by phone.
Over the years, every single child had a serious disease or three. Adam has had Marfans, ASD and others. Megan had Tourettes. The list goes on and on. I believe she could not get enough attention with chronic illnesses so Joshua and Bethany had to have terminal illnesses. I believe everything she does is intentional.
One thing I'd like to ask ( along with many things) is about Adam and Megan, on one of the comments it was said they were raised with Kate as their mom. Were they Charlies kids and and raised by Kate or is she their natural mom? If they were Charlies, did Kate have any children before marrying Charlie? I don't know a lot of their background, I found them through another blogger and CB.
