Linus parents Lennart and Jeanette Wallberg now reporting doctors who missed their son's illness . "

We will do everything to second should not be part of the same thing . "Jnker For years fought Linus Wallberg, 15, to their pain.

Last spring, he died of neurological Lyme disease at home in the family's couch.

Now sign three family physicians to Health and Medical Treatment.

- I have no confidence in care longer. We will do everything to second should not be part of the same thing, "says Lennart dad.

Linus Wallberg had been sick to and from the more than three years.

On several occasions he had been given emergency leave to the emergency department in Nykping of pain in the body, severe nausea and vomiting.

But when the family rushed to the hospital were sent home again Linus usually diagnosed with stomach flu or influenza.

- We believe in the doctors said. Nobody wants to believe that your child is seriously ill, "said Linus' Mom Jeanette Wallberg.

Doctors dismissed the fears

One of the doctors gave Linus diagnosed asthma stomach and said that his pain would disappear by itself over time.

And when Jeanette told the doctor that she was orlig that she would one day find her son's death, the doctor laughed and dismissed her concerns.

But Linus was seriously ill. Early on the morning of February 17 last year, when Dad would bring Lennart Linus he found him dead in the family's couch. Autopsy report showed that Linus had died from complications of neuro-Lyme.

- To my knowledge, none of any doctor hit Linus who tested him for Lyme. Had they taken the spinal cord samples, and gave him antibiotics Linus had lived today.

But it felt like they did not take us seriously, "says Jeanette.
"Important to the case investigated

Linus' parents have now sent three doctors to the health care committee and Responsibility. One of them is Chief Diana Born Welff Stein, who is medical director of children's hospital in Nykping.

- It has stood in the records and they showed symptoms Linus did not automatically suspected neurological Lyme disease, otherwise we had investigated and dealt with Linus. But this is a very difficult diagnosis to make, "she says.

Have you failed in the treatment of Linus?

- Yes of course I just had to say when a child dies from a treatable disease. I can understand that the family chooses to report and it is important that the case be investigated, "said Diana Stein Born Welff.
"They did not believe us"

But it is of little comfort to Linus family.

- They did not believe us.

We will never get over this, but if notification helps other parents to avoid going through the same thing so there is always something, "says Jeanette Wallberg.

Did you translate this yourself? If you used a certain site to do that, can you share what that is so I can bookmark it for future use? The link goes to the original language newspaper. I could not find a link to translate to English.

Curious as to the location, from the name of the hospital, I could then search to find:

Nykping Municipality, Sdermanland County, Sweden

"Autopsy report showed that Linus had died from complications of neuro-Lyme."

Sounds like the mortician had better testing capabilities than most of the doctors & hospitals?
