Creaking the Wheels of Justice
After the letter from our attorney was sent to the BOP, things began to move...alittle. Karla, who was once told that her treatments would not start until Feb., was informed that her treatment would begin the next day.....a coincidence? Karla is now recieving chemo/radiation, but is not being given adequate pain relief to deal with the effects of the tumor and chemo. She told her sister that she feels as if her body is on fire. She is being denied the chance to see a psychologist for help with the anxiety she is feeling over her situation. She is continuing to have seizures and is not receiving adequate monitoring. We have been informed that Karla's treatment by the staff is worsening with the pressure we are putting on the facilities in Karla's behalf. While on the phone with her mother, Karla began to have a seizure and almost smothered herself in her pillow. If this were happening in any private hospital there would be a lawsuit going on...and rightly so.
