"This is yet unofficial, but I have spoken with my unit manager, Mr. Pierce who told me today that he had personally seen paper work that says they are going to transfer me for medical reasons, to Rochester Minnesota where I will be treated for my jaw. I want to thank everyone of you that have written letters on my behalf. It is unfortunate that it has taken over two years to get this medical problem treated, but never the less it appears that your letters were effective and I will receive treatment from Dr. Eugene Keller. I love you*thank you."
Note: This is great news, but since it has not happened yet, we should probably keep the letters coming to make sure it does! Leonard says that they never tell him when he will be transferred so we will be keeping a close eye on him. As soon as he is transferred you will hear from us!
The medical law-suit will probably still be pursued, we will keep you updated on that also. --Thanks, Gina/LPDC
