Dear Stonewall, PSacramento and Wobble,
My wife is a baptized JW and other than during the time of her recent hospitalization has never missed any kind of gathering.
She has been in contact with brothers, elders and committees - they met with attending physicians and I thought they were very confrontational.
I finally got it across to them that it was up to them to give the doctors alternatives to blood transfusion and they ultimately did . The physicians applied all JW initiatives including EPO.
I am suprised that an international organization like WTS does not have a list of professionals to address an issue they deem so important. The local honchos did not have and and have no knowledge of such a list.
Saddly at this point I have to agree with Wobble "If the issue is a low blood count then there really isn't much any medical professional can do outside what would be the correct thing to do"
Thansk for your comments
