    My wife just got an e-mail a short while ago from the mother of our very good friend (also a bridesmaid in our wedding and possible godparent to our future child) Catrina who is vacationing in Jamaica at the moment and has just been diagnosed this morning with acute appendicitis. For some reason the local doctors/hospitals will not treat her for it they simply gave her some pain killers and told her to get home ASAP. To make matters worse they can't find a plane to get home any time soon :shock: I can't imagine what she and her boyfriend must be thinking, feeling, and going through right now. We just pray that they can find a way back to the US before her appendix ruptures.

    Please help us by keeping her in your prayers as she will be in our's for a safe return, surgery, and recovery :hugs:

    That's terrible!

    What's the chances of getting her to Florida, Puerto Rico or anywhere with modern medicine?

    Well I got a tiny bit more info on this before I left for work last night. Evidentally she was looked at x-rayed, MRI'd whatever they do and in the process of being prepped for surgery when they discovered she didn't have health insurance? I suppose it's possible seeing as how she can only work part time due to having M.S.

    Anyway when the doctors (quacks) down there discovered that they changed their minds and told "uh well actually it's just food poisoning so take two of these and go home to YOUR doctors" and directed her immediately out of the hospital. :pissed:

    Then when they talked to the airline about getting home asap they said "we have no flights until Sunday, there is just nothing we can do until then You DID miss your originall flight, which we can not refund, but we will happily get you two one way tickets on Sunday for $1500 a piece :D ) pardon my language but what a bunch of assholes :angry1:

    I'll keep you all updated in this saga. Thanks for the support :hug::

    I'm sure some doctors at the airport (if not, passengers who are doctors) will help her for the time being.
    I wish them alot of courage and best of luck
