I can't sleep. People keep asking me how they can help. I really need to find an insurance company that will cover Eric's supplemental insu (cont'd..) rance even with a heart condition. I need help bombarding people at UCLA w email, the same way people did with Sen Reids office. Everyone (cont'd..) Keeps asking why LA or CA? Eric and I were born in No Cal and raised in So Cal and we have a network/support system in place. If we have to (cont'd..) move our lives while Eric undergoes treatment, at least in LA there are people to help. I don't know anyone anywhere else. Plus, I would (cont'd..) Like people to be able to visit him in the hosp. I will take him anywhere they accept him tho. I just have to find places that will. I

Sitting in the cafeteria waiting for #Eric 2 finish w procedure. Its like groundhogs day being here in the hospital day in, day out. I have (cont'd..) been working with hospital case worker (Marion, really sweet lady) to get Eric transported. Right now we are working on UCLA, USC & Stanford (cont'd..) All 3 have our paperwork. I cannot believe how painfully slow a system that handles life/death can be. The doctors have told me off the (cont'd..) record that they see patients die while waiting for their cases to go to court, papers to be faxed, phonecalls made. What is wrong w this (cont'd..) Picture? Nurses and staff are still dragging around 3 ring binders stuffed with paper. They write orders in pen. Their handwriting is barely (cont'd..) Legible. Talk about a system that needs a major overhaul!! If we can organize a movement solely on the web thru one woman, and raise 650k+ (cont'd..) In a matter of days, why should it take years to figure out insurance issues and medical transport?R u serious?What is the hold up?Someones (cont'd..) life is on the line and you are telling me its because of a 3 day wknd? Unbelievable. The system is archaic. We are talking about the system (cont'd..) this country has in place 2 save lives.Let's step it up people,the last time I checked, we were able to elect a president using the internet (cont'd..) Should not take this long to transport a patient from 1 hospital to the other. The issue right now being, why won't anyone accept Eric? We (cont'd..) now have 650k+ in a fund and medicare. Its just insane to me. I am going to go knock on the caseworkers door again. I'm tired of waiting. I (cont'd..) can only hope things start to change. It is one nightmare on top of another when you have a loved one in the hospital. I am dumbfounded (cont'd..) things are this difficult. Pls continue ur support 4 #ERIC.

Extremely frustrating day. I'm hoping tomorrow we can figure out a hospital to transport him to. We now have paperwork at UCLA, Stanford (cont'd..) and USC. We should hopefully know something in the morning. Mom and I are at the hospital so much, we should have them set up cots with our (cont'd..) Names on them. We just got home so I am going 2 crash. Back at it again in the am. Thx again 4 ur support. Good night #Erics Twitter Army!!!
