update on Tim

December 29, 2006 at 10:27 am

To all that have followed this story. The situation for Tim has been a nightmare for the past month. He remains at Fairfax Inova hospital without insurance coverage since Dec. 5. His attending doctor refuses to discharge him home because he believes that he needs inpatient rehab. Our appeal to Cigna and his former employer, the Bank has not yielded any success and so he is stuck. In the meantime we are trying to get him to Canada with little success either because of the availability of beds. We are waiting day by day. It looks promising for next week to come to Ottawa and we are praying that finally he will get a break. I will let you know when we get him here (I am now in Ottawa trying to make things happen in my old home town). Once he is here and getting proper rehab, we will try to recover the cost of the hospital time through legal action if necessary. All the best to everyone and I hope for a happy new year to all.
