Another Rant by: BettyJean Kling
Louisa Moved to Kessler
On Friday January 23, 2009 Louisa Richardson- Rodas was moved from Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, NJ to Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in West Orange, NJ.
As I stood there, I was informed by my son Tommy with the most vicious disgusting terms imaginable that this would be the last time I would see my daughter and he was backed up by her husband Frank. I was not going to repeat his words but I decided To do so . He said to Louisa,
” Don’t worry Lou Lou – we will get you out of here and away from this murdering, whore pig and you will be safe very very soon.”
Then he looked me straight in the eye and told me I would never see her again and that he would
Yikes! One has to wonder what they are telling this poor baby when I am not there and just how dangerous this all is to her recovery! I am not concerned about what she will think of me- but what is this doing to her? And God help her – why doesn’t anyone care? Surely the rantings and ravings of these two should have raised some eyebrows with the hospital and they certainly should have conveyed this to Kessler.
I spoke to the Kessler Institute on Friday and they informed me that her husband Frank and brother Tommy had been there already and had been emphatic that they did not want me to visit my daughter. They also told me that they had reports from Hackensack University Medical Center that the two had attempted to ban me from that institution as well but that HUMC had determined that it was in the best interest of the patient to have her mother at her side and they overruled her husband. Kessler assured me if I waited until Monday and did not create any problems over the weekend they would probably follow the same visitation program. They already told the two guys that if there were any problems – Louisa would not be admitted or she would be released- seems they did not care- I did and stayed home and never blogged it- complained or called again till late Monday.
On Monday when I called for an update, I was told Kessler asked for a meeting about visitation and both men had created such a stir over the prospect that Kessler would also overrule them that they would have Kessler turn her away rather than have me visit. Kessler assured me that if I pressed this issue – they will not keep her there. They actually warned me not to press them or Louisa would be released. I am withholding the woman’s name until I am assured the woman can not retaliate against Louisa. Again – Lou is my first consideration.
It took me several hours to contact my attorney and I instructed him that he was to inquire regarding both the legality of preventing my visitation and the legality of removing her should I request visitation. I guess the threat is to be considered as well but it is secondary and personal so no matter to Louisa’s best interests at this time.
At first – I was simply going to just step back as did the mother in the Bible and refuse to “Split the Baby” then I decided – not to allow anyone to use Louisa against her will nor was I going to be blackmailed by these two heartless fools who claim to love Louisa but who would risk her care for spite, or an Institute who would prevent a mother visitation without first checking the legality of doing so and by threatening to withhold care in retaliation for my seeking legal council on the matter. Finally, I am very concerned with the brainwashing of my helpless daughter – surely someone should be concerned about that?
Tommy and Frank should be ashamed of themselves for behaving on behalf of Louisa in such a way as to humiliate and degrade her dignity.
In the meanwhile, I intend to continue to try to work this out legally, without jeopardizing Louisa’s care and without loosing touch with my daughter who means the world to me and who I have been financially supporting for the last 5+ years since her husband could not afford to.
So what does it mean to “split the baby”?
It means that a Mother’s Love will allow me to step back and do the right thing while selfishness will allow others to use a totally helpless Louisa in this unscrupulous disgusting manner may they rot in HELL for:
” Using her without her permission as a tool of hate and spite
” Doing things without knowledge if what you are doing is hurting her
” Whispering in her ears not knowing how detrimental it is to her
Louisa is in danger because these two fools are messing with the memories and thoughts of a helpless seriously brain injured woman and they appear to have Carte Blanc to continue. Remember – Louisa has lost most of her right brain tissue. And we do not know what all this is doing to her. They are playing with fire and they do not care. I care – Pray God Kessler investigates before it is too late for my helpless daughter who is being victimized yet again! God help Louisa.
Tommy and Frank you are both abusers just like George. He got one side and now you are damaging the other . Shame on you both!!
