Only once in my life have I collected disability workman's Comp. It was for a period of 2 weeks. I had a very painful problem with rotating one of my arms and physical therapy wasn't going to be the answer. I guess getting you back to work is their only priority and your well-being goes to the wayside. Prior to sending me back to work they brought some guy in during my appointment and moved my arm in every rediculous he could. Because I didn't scream out in pain they probably thought that was a-ok. Well it wasn't. That night I had spasms like I had never had before. I had to work anyway. As it turns out, I had musceo-skelatal being caused by something else entirely and none of what they prescribed for the arm was the answer. I needed surgery for a completely unrelated area of the body. Hard to understand, but I guess I'm just going to figure that all body parts are connected and will/can affect other parts of the body - because there is absolutely nothing wrong with my arm anymore. I think when it comes to Worker's Comp - they just don't care.
I have learned this hard way. I did however learn that every part of the body is connected and just because one part hurts doesn't mean that it isn't being caused by something else. I learned alot from the chiroprator and he has helped me. The insurance companies want you on prescription medicines (Pain killers) so you don't know if you are hurt or not, then it create the illusions that you are getting better, it is insane. I went through the same thing with their bought off doctor and was in worse shape after he was done with me than I had started out that day. I am going after him and his lies to prove a point, not for the money, be to prove a point. I have an attorney in the family who has decided to take the case, I don't care how long it takes these insurance companies need to be exposed for the whores they are.
I have been there too

I'm Jeff, and my 13 year old son just finished his last round of radiation to treat his Hotchkins Lymphoma that he was diagnost with last Sept. His story is almost identical to Daniel's. So much so that I would like to contact his family and let them know they have to get him treated the right way. My son's mother fought the chemo and tried the same methods that Daniel's family has tried. After a two month delay in the chemo, my son could have died in his sleep due to the tumor around his trechea, just like Daniel has now. It took stronger chemo dosages due to this delay that was unnecessary if he would have gotten in sooner.
Some of the homopathic stuff seemed to be working on the symptoms, but the cancer just gained speed with every day that was lost. I feel for the family, but chances are Daniel will be ok the sooner he gets on with the process. My son was very scared and did in fact run away from the Hospital and almost had to be arrested to get him in. He has been braver than I have ever had to in my life, and I am very proud of him. His hair is coming back and he is feeling better every day now.
I just hope that the Hauser family can find hope and strength to get through this tough time. If they need support from some people that really know what they are up against please get them my e-mail. Not one word of this is untrue, my son is living proof. chambersjeffrey@sbcglobal.net would someone get this to the Hauser family please...We can help!

I listened to an interview with this mother and I have to say, she didn't sound stupid by a long shot. That being said, maybe she's not capable of the patience or what ever it takes to teach a child - especially if we're talking a special needs child. If in fact this kid actually has a normal IQ, I think it's time for the "home schooling" to stop because the "teacher of home school" is not doing her job. I don't know if we'll ever hear about that though because the issue here is chemo. Everyone wishes the kid didn't have to do chemo, but it's the only chance he's got to live. Unfortunately here in the US perhaps they've been falling down on the job of doing new research for new treatments. It sure seems like there should be something better by now. Of course I could be 100% wrong on that.
Oh, I never said she was stupid and never even meant to say anything to make others think that's how I feel about her. No, what I said is that she's probably not a special ed teacher, despite that's what Daniel needs for his learning disability if he can't read. I don't think she's the right teacher for him.

I think she's passionate and caring, and thinks she was doing the right thing for the boy, but I've repeatedly said that she and the boy have willfully been ignorant about his cancer, his treatment and his side effects. I think she's finally understanding what many of us quickly concluded or understood: the best treatment options are available right here in MN.

If Daniel has intolerable side effects, he (or his mom) should have been on the phone immediately with the doc. There are so many ways to help, and he should have GOTTEN help while he was really sick. His mom truly didn't have all of the information to know what to do when Daniel got sick from the chemo. The boy and mom's answer was: "That was horrible. No more chemo!" (that's not a responsible response at all).

I doubt that there haven't been Lymphoma treatment! I've walked in my second "Light the Night" for Leukemia/Lymphoma research and awareness-BELIEVE ME: people are searching for new options all the time:

It doesn't mean that what's "tried and true" is still the current regime to give Daniel such a high chance of beating cancer.

I believe in reading what I did today in the newspapers that I was right origionally. These people became panic stricken, all the way around. Everybody over reacted to this from the doctors to the judge. When it got so he could not breathe well Daniel decided to try chemotherapy again. It is that simple.

Yeppers, I know you didn't say the mother was stupid. Others have said that though and I started to wonder if she was myself.

Leave it to the doctors to not communicate that there are things that can help when the treatment is unbearable. Take being nauseous for example, I know they have a drug for that. I understand it doesn't work in all cases though. There are pain pills that leave a lot to be desired if they don't work or you're allergic to them. I know it's possible for the mind to control pain but that can be real difficult for some if they're not taught to do that. It's odd that the parents didn't report the trouble he was having. To me, that's pretty much a no-brainer. I get this impression of the parents just standing by and watching him suffer without doing a thing. I certainly hope they do justice by him better this time around.

This family got what they wanted...their 15 min in the spotlight. I guess its more important to be in the news than what is important to the kids

I hope the family realizes how many opportunities with traditional and natural/alternative healing that can help the boy through the treatment. Support groups are also recommended. Talking with a "cancer mentor," someone who's been there, can help, too. I hope the family explores all of these opportunities. They can help a lot!

It would be amazing if he can get some help with pain control. I'm sure there are medical people out there who can help him with that. I found out on my own by accident that the mind can go a long way toward ignoring pain. It was an outright miracle because I was having severe enough pain to make a trip to the emergency room, but didn't. There are meds that work with the brain's perception of pain. I take Ultram that does that, but it's not for any real serious pain. I'm wondering if the kid was in serious enough pain that the mother had no choice but to come back. Any time trying to stay away from home costs some serious $$$ too. I read the physical description of the tumors he is growing and it doesn't sound pleasant at all. They're likely going to be extra agressive in his treatment at first. At least now they know the kid had some serious issues with the treatment and can help him with that now - at least hopefully.

You are right and that is why I have told people do not be afraid to ask for anti-depressants they help a lot with pain. Depending on well you go, the ACS will help with pain meds and nausea meds. At least ask for it, you cannot get anything until you ask.

This is an important message. There are so many emotional hardships centered around cancer, that people who've always been happy-go-lucky people (me) can find themselves flooded with frustrated and sad emotions that the person can't control (me). Admittedly, I wished I had asked for more help when I was going through treatment (too stubbornly independent) but I learned that I will ALWAYS ask for help if I need it. Hard lesson to learn; I'm still "strongly" independent.

Cancer treatment aside, there are SO many opportunities to deal with pain. Some are chemically-derived (medicine) some are healing touch (massage, chiropractic care, acupuncture, etc), and some are mind-over-matter (which I know little about, but have heard that there are techniques, like deep breathing techniques related to pregnancy-related breathing).

There are so many ways that Daniel can be helped. May he take advantage of all of them that can benefit him!

What have you been smoking? I use Tylenol; because I have Crohn's that's what is recommended for my minor pain. Luckily, that's enough.

I've never pushed pot. I support it for chronic and acute illnesses. And I definitely support it for those who have terminal illnesses. Some of those people may be veterans of wars, and I support anything that gives our honored servants relief from pain.

Don't you?

Compazine is a element found in Pot if you will that controls nausea. It worked well for me and others that had to take radiation and chemo. Now they give nausea medicine in the chemo or before you take radiation. The old compazine broke down after few shelf months life and had to be thrown away. I too used Tyelonol for pain relief after my surgical scars started to heal.

Why are there different layers of law and government. Is that not an acknowledgment that an error can be made on some level.

Do everyone a favor, If you ever get the call to jury duty, make sure and tell everyone that you despise individual freedom and do not completly understand the bill of rights and feel that the judge should be able to do as he wishes to the alleged defendant.
Read CSI's post a few times and focus on the family unit instead of your dictatorial beliefs.
You still believe in the sanctity of the family unit that is more powerful than activist laws and unusual decisions?
