20. It's the wrong way to go, obviously. This child had an infection

so serious it resulted in amputation, which in itself is major life-changing surgery and needs post-op care, pain meds, etc.--add to that the leukemia and the chemo...yikes. Even if the infection (I'm assuming it was down to bone, and guessing it might have come from an old IV or PICC line site gone bad) was the fault of the hospital and not just from her compromised immune state, it's still pretty unreasonable to flee with the child when she needs possibly A LOT of supportive care, protection from further infection, and of course her treatment's been interrupted. It's an unwise move. The parents should have discussed moving her first, so that they could receive the most information possible and cause their daughter the least amount of pain and discomfort.
