As far as not being able to use her car to take her kid to a hospital... Hmm, lesse here, there is something called NINE-ONE-ONE! It's a free service to use, and they do have payment options for people who don't have medical insurance. Or, maybe take a counseling, and education classes, on how to react to, and treat, from home, asthmatic attacks in children, and adults, alike. That article made me face-paw so hard, I now have a headache.
[This part is probably going to get snipped out by a mod]
Maybe, just maybe, if that mother didn't feed herself, and her daughter a feast for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, they could take the money spent on filling up the hog troughs, and use it to keep her car payments on time. I mean come on! Medically, and generally speaking, a kid that looks like that ... AIN'T GONNA BE HEALTHY! Feed that kid less, and make them walk more. You might find the asthma will rid itself when the kid isn't a miniture version of the michilin man.
