A friend of my mother’s is a teacher, who has a little boy in her class on an insulin pump. Yesterday, the boy’s mother came and took him from school, saying that she was taking him home to remove his insulin pump because God had told her that he would be healed if she did that. The school could not legally prevent her from taking him, so he left with her.

The teacher, being knowlegeable about diabetes, was very worried. She called social services. They checked, and the mother claimed to be giving him small insulin shots as needed and planning on taking him to the doctor tomorrow.

Everyone’s worried about the little boy. I hope this gets fixed with all parties still healthy and okay.
