    From Prof. Thaddeus Pope's blog today
    Mary Welch Charged with Medical Child Abuse for Obtaining Unnecessary Treatment

    A 50-page arrest warrant for Mary Anna Welch accuses her of deceiving doctors into performing needless invasive surgeries on her son, Duke.


    She's charged with child endangerment. (NBC News; ABC News)
    http://medicalfutility.blogspot.com/


    From the NBC link:
    "...A Texas mother is facing medical child abuse charges for allegedly treating her child with medication,
    and doctor shopping all the way to Minnesota to find someone to perform surgery on the boy,
    even though doctors in Texas say the treatment was unnecessary
    ."

    Brain surgery?!?!?!? No words.

    (Mods, if there is a thread on this already, I missed it, so pls delete or merge)

    Sounds like she's the one who needed brain surgery.

    How anyone could do that unnecessarily to their child, after sitting at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, for all of November 2014, watching my own kid have a brain tumor and his pituitary gland removed, and now embarking on a year of chemo is beyond me.
