(Dose.ca erroneously quotes NME and posts that Trent Reznor heard about Eric from TV. This is obviously wrong by this timeline. Trent Reznor tweeted before it hit local television stations in Las Vegas. They corrected it but they still say they heard it from NME when they obviously heard it from me.)

Im on the phone with UCLA who will not accept Eric regardless of his medicare bc he does not have secondary insurance. No one will cover him (cont'd..) Bc of his pre-existing condition. I CANNOT BELIEVE I AM STILL FIGHTING. This is unbelievable. My brother needs to be moved ASAP. WTF!!!!!!!! (cont'd..) This is amazing - how f*d is our healthcare system that they won't transport someone bc of insurance issues and paperwork? I just told this (cont'd..) Woman Ilona in financial at ucla that we had raised nearly half a million. She had the nerve to tell me "well, that still isn't enough for (cont'd..) a transplant." I can't believe this is happening. Is this a game? Do they not realize someones life is on the line? What is wrong w people?

Veronica De La Cruz tweets on about 1 hour ago from TwitterBerry
I just want u guys to know that medicare doesn't matter - it doesn't count for anything - you still have to get supplemental ins and no one (cont'd..) Will give it to a sick person. (cont'd..) In the meantime I am sitting here in tears waiting for ucla to call me back w their "quote" on how much its gonna cost to take Eric.I cant (cont'd..) believe u could put a price on a life. What's wrong w this picture?????????

Ilona in financial for heart and lung transplants. She has been very inflexible & has given me a lot of misinformation. If its not 1 thing, (cont'd..) Its another. Yesterday everything was fine. This morning it was lack of supplemental insurance. An hour later she mentioned the date on my (cont'd..) Brothers medicare letter was wrong. Her boss Nancy told me she would call me back with a quote for self-pay. Now both of them have left for (cont'd..) The wknd. What's sad about this whole thing is the transplant dr, Dr. Mclendon (sp?) told Erics doctor they were trying to push things thru (cont'd..) On their end. But unfortunately its the administrative staff that runs the hospital. Not the doctors. This whole thing is nuts. I still cant (cont'd..) Believe I am living this nightmare. #Eric

I dare people to wrap themselves up in redtape and go and stand in front of UCLA right now. This is ludicrous.

Eric's doctor just got off phone w Stanford. They've initiated a discussion on transport. Now just waiting to get paperwork over to them.

I am going to put a letter together documenting all the people I have spoken with today and give it to Trents people who just offered to try (cont'd..) 2 help me since thy c I keep hitting walls. Blows me away. I mean, its not like they r'nt on tour or NEthing. So kind. But I'm so frustratd.

Veronica De La Cruz tweets on about 1 hour ago from TwitterBerry
Update: went to get Chinese food w Mom while we waited for Stanford to get back to us. Moms fortune read: Remember this day, 3 months from (cont'd..) now you'll have a pleasant surprise. My fortune read: good news is on the way (I am not making this stuff up). I just finished typing out (cont'd..) The days events complete with names and phone numbers of everyone I spoke w for Trents people in hopes that maybe their voice will b louder (cont'd..) than mine. Going to go in and get POA for Eric now and then follow up again with Stanford. Be back soon. #ERIC

Today has been exremely frustrating. After being told that Eric would be assigned a social worker when he arrived to UCLA yesterday and (cont'd..) Everything would be on the up and up, today I am suddenly getting a different story. Ilona in the financial dept at ucla is suddenly telling (cont'd..) Me they can't accept him. Reasons keep changing. First time its lack of supplemental insurance, then its-he's not popping up in the system (cont'd..) Another time its, "you've only raised 500k? Well, that's not enough for a transplant." I called to speak w her boss Nancy Flores, I called (cont'd..) 2 speak with Nancy's boss. I called 2 speak w the head of admissions. I called the head of PR and even the CEO. I am leaving messages, (cont'd..) People say they will get right back to me. No one ever does. I keep calling back.I can hear assistants snickering saying - oh its that woman (cont'd..) Calling again (mind you, I am in tears). I just don't understand why it has to be so hard?!! We called Stanford & they have Erics paperwork (cont'd..) Just trying to get all the doctors now to communicate. A doctor & Eric's hospital said he doesn't see anything happening this wknd bc its a (cont'd..) holiday. (I wasn't aware hospitals shutdown bc no one gets sick over holidays). So that's where we are at. Trying to get Eric transported (cont'd..) 2 a hospital with proper cardiac facilities on a holiday wknd when I've been told no one works. Its extremely frustrating. In the meantime (cont'd..) Eric is still on 3 IV's that he depends on to stay alive. (cont'd..) Why is this all happening? Why is there so much paperwork involved when someone really needs major medical attn?Why dont (cont'd..) doctors have the say over who gets treated&not the woman in financial? Its just wrong. Why is. there a doctor willing and waiting 2 accept (cont'd..) him at the transplant center and there's some lady on the phone saying - 500k is not enough. Where is the justice in our healthcare system?
