Our precious Taylor had to have a pace maker put in. They can’t find any reason why his heart rate keeps dropping so low. His heart is perfectly normal.. They ran all kinds of tests. The Chino Home couldn’t allow him to come back until the Dr’s came up with a plan. That’s their plan. He’ll go back to Chino Home, probably on Sat Oct 19th. Thank heavens. Had he been gone any longer he wouldn’t have a residence. By law if the bed is empty for a certain amount of time they have to let the next person have it… Not sure my emotions could take another blow. First his having to be rushed to the hospital, then the blown clutch in his car leaving me stranded at the hospital right before my flight back to GA, then him going to the hospital again & my dad dying on that same day, then the Dr’s putting him on a life long medicine, & now a permanent pace maker. This is no life, especially for Taylor. Dear God please raise Taylor.

Just got off the phone with the Pomono Valley Hospital, where Taylor currently is, neurologist. His manner was wonderful, but not filled with hope. Especially without any treatment that insurance will, of course, NOT cover. It’s amazing to me how many people fall through the cracks in order for the insurance companies to save a buck and the pharmaceutical companies to make a buck. All at the cost of a human life. NO ONE should have to fight for their lives like this. Something has to change. They are doing another MRI and other tests. Ones that should have been done while Taylor was at Barlow – SO much wasted time at Barlow – all because of insurance issues. Taylor will stay at the hospital until all the testing is complete and a plan is in place. Dear God, PLEASE help my son.

You made need to apply for everything that every state offers plus disability with an attorney to speed it up. I would start there.
