Thank you for posting your insight about that case. I remember when it was first announced, you'd mentioned on here that some of what he said didn't add up, but based on what you posted tonight, it really does sound like they were in denial about the seriousness of her illness and that he still is.
(Personally just as a total laywoman, I was surprised to read that she was having what they thought were gallbladder attacks every few weeks and there was no apparent discussion/decision about surgery. I had what was a suspected gallbladder attack a couple of years ago, and even just after the 1 time, I was basically told if it became a recurring event, I'd almost inevitably have surgery.)
The whole thing is so sad but reminds me of a lot of other fundamentalists I know who are very suspicious of doctors and modern medicine. I know a fundie family who is like that, and the mother is currently battling a rather aggressive form of breast cancer. I was very worried that they would dismiss the advice of actual doctors but I have been pleasantly surprised that they seem to be cooperating, and she is thankfully doing well, at least last I heard.
