Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

No offense, but most people who use this site do get confused with how it operates so this is why I am explaining this here before we continue. The experts on this site are not employees of the site, so they get no credit for spending time with customers unless customers leave them positive feedback. When we spend time with customers and a customer leaves negative or no feedback, that goes against the expert and can prevent them from continuing to help others on this site. I noticed that I had worked with you about a month or so ago and you never bothered to leave positive feedback. Before we continue any further I would thank you for considering to tend to that.

Also, as I seem to recall, your son has mental health problems too?

What are his health problems that have led to the surgeries? Are they going to result in multiple future surgeries or medical care?
