    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    sounds like one of those cases where parents disagree with the medical treatment.

    Police: Missing Albuquerque boy was taken from hospital. Authorities say Joshua may be with his father, 51-year-old Jeffery Brown, or with his mother. Joshua still has an IV line that goes from his upper arm to his heart.

    Joshua Brown was reported missing Wednesday. University of New Mexico police say he was last seen with his father, 51-year-old Jeffery D. Brown. The alert does not say where the pair was last seen.

    The boy has a PICC line, a peripherally inserted central catheter that goes from his arm to his heart. UNM police were told by doctors that it needs to be monitored as it is prone to blood clots and it must be removed by a professional.

    What exactly is wrong with parents today? Are they uninformed or suffering from mental illnesses? This child is in danger. He needs to be returned to the hospital. Its very upsetting to see these cases because a 7 year old has no say in these things...and you know he's scared.
    Sleuthing....from the perch.

    Police believe Joshua is with his father, 51-year-old Jeffery Brown, or with his mother. Itís believed he was taken from the hospital because his dad was unhappy with his sonís care.

    He has not been checked into any other hospitals in the state, UNMPD says.

    An address linked to his dad, Jeffery, led police to a storage shed. Police are now working on a warrant for Jefferyís arrest for child endangerment or abuse.

    The dad has no known criminal history, police said.

    Some more info on KOB TV Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/KOBTV/?fref=nf

    UPDATE (3:51 p.m.): UNM police say Joshua's siblings took him to the play area of the pediatrics unit at the Children's Hospital. Police say that is where he was last seen.
    UNM police also said the address on Jeffery's driver's license led officers to a storage unit in Albuquerque, so they still do not know his real address.

    Police said the father told hospital staff he was unhappy with the treatment and wanted to leave. They told him the child had a catheter in his arm and heart, and it needed to be removed professionally, or it would form very dangerous blood clots.

    According to authorities, that's when the father told staff his son was already gone.

    I do understand that the pressure a parent is under when their child is deathly ill can make them crack, unfortunately I have been there. But to risk the childs life by leaving...smh...I can only hope he reaches a moment of clarity, realizes the seriousness of what he has done and goes into a different hospital with the boy.... I am betting you the father just lost it.... IMHO

    UPDATE: Thursday night, Joshua Brown's Grandfather and Jeffery's father, called KOB and said Jeffery had taken Joshua to an emergency room in Juarez, Mexico, though that has not been confirmed aside from Douglas's statement.

    Just an FYI, many people go home with a PICC line so that in itself is not concerning. (Assuming parent knows how to take care of it.)
