death and rebirth: you have to go to hell to get to heaven

Several things happened in my daily life recently, and in my dreams, to point me toward the topic of today's post.

In fact, often as not, God's messengers are not radiant and pretty. They are, well, grubby and not pretty.

There is a reason for this. Two reasons, actually.

The messengers themselves are being put through hell to get to heaven, as Kari Dangler summed it up this morning on the telephone, after I told her she is being put through God's purification fire, whether she likes it or not, and somebody had to tell her that, whether she likes it or not.

The second reason is, the people the messengers are sent need to hear what the messengers have to say, to give them a chance to move closer to God, or not. And, the messengers are grubby, and not pretty, to give those people a chance to get over themselves and see just how grubby and not pretty they also are.

Historically, it has not been easy for God's messengers, as the Bible amply demonstrates.

Currently, I have in my "orbit" five close friends being put through hell by God's angels. Kari is one of them. The other four get mention from time to time on this blog.

Each of them is struggling. Each of them is being stretched. Each of them is not happy with it. My observation of them is, the more highly they think of themselves, the harder it is for them to submit to the ... training. The harder it is for them to ... see themselves accurately. The harder it is for them to ... become obedient.

One of them told me yesterday, that he was briefly visited by the war angel Khamael earlier in the day. Khamael told him that he was going to have a really rough go of it. He, in fact, was having a really rough go of it already. He tried to brush the visit off. Then, he was visited by the archangel Michael, who told him the same thing, and that he will have as rough a go of it as the woman in Key West is having. Kari Dangler, whom he knows and has spoken with on the telephone. Then, his day got a lot rougher, which is saying something, because it already was horrible for him.

I told my friend the angels do this to some people out of great love, and I wonder why the angels don't do it to everyone? I said it is important to try not to react, and while sometimes a tantrum is appropriate, per Jesus in the temple with the money changers and merchants, it's best to not throw tantrums.

In the Gospels, John the Baptist said one greater than he would come, who would baptize in fire and spirit. When that one came to John the Baptist, to be baptized in water, John said this was that one. 

Nowhere in the Gospels do I see Jesus baptized anyone in water. He did just what John the Baptist said he would do. He challenged people ongoing. He told his disciples they would be stretched and some of them would be killed. He put them into fire, and then at Pentecost the Holy Spirit came to them and, using fire and spirit, grew them from children into adults, who could serve God.

The disciples, the twelve and the secret ones, died while still alive and became something else entirely. That is what Jesus meant by dying and being reborn. He himself experienced the fire and spirit baptism before he died physically, according to the Gospels.

Not a new philosophy, actually. Death and rebirth was in spiritual traditions before Jesus' time, and it was part of spiritual traditions after his time. The spirit part always was more popular than the fire part, though. A lot more popular, actually. 

I hated the fire part. I still don't like it. But if the angels had not provided it, they would have shortchanged me. Robbed me. That's what I keep telling my five friends, and anyone else who offers me the opportunity to say it to them.

Therefore, I will share this post today with all the important Key West and Florida Keys people I was told by the angels to drag into the Kari Dangler Lower Keys Medical Center and Key West homeless shelter dramas described in the past few posts at this blog.
Kari is still struggling. She told me this morning on the telephone that her stomach and bowel are aching. She is passing terrible-smelling gas. She has not pooped in several days. She did not vomit the past two days. She has not had solid food in a while. She has been able to drink some liquid yogurt. She drank no vodka since being run over from behind on her bicycle by a hit-and-run electric bicycle on the North Roosevelt Blvd sidewalk a while ago. She is sounding increasingly more clear-headed, and I hope that continues, for relapse is ever a threat.

All of that, and Kari's awful medical troubles and her mistreatment at the hospital and the homeless shelter, came on the heels of her telling me a while back, that she woke up before dawn that day in her hidey hole and saw a shooting star, and then a man she never saw before walked straight to where she lay and said she knew who he was and where he came from, and she thought he was from the shooting star and was an angel, and he said she had a purpose, she needed to change, and she needed to leave Key West, and she was terrified and shit in her pants, and he turned and walked back toward where he had come from.

I told Kari on the telephone last night, that what the man from the shooting star told her was happening in the time order he predicted, and whether or not she likes it, or likes hearing me say it, is not relevant. She needs to hear it from somebody. She seemed to take it in. She still seemed to be taking it in this morning, when she said she had to go through hell to get to heaven. She still has a ways to go in hell. As do my four friends. As do I. As does everyone, I imagine.

Once again, for readers who live in or near Key West, maybe 5 days before Hurricane Irma arrived in the fall of 2016, Kari told me she woke up after dawn in her hidey hole and saw two enormous hands and arms reach down through the clouds and nudge Irma slightly eastward. Kari had told me she started having visions when she was a child.

As Irma then closed in on Key West, she turned slightly eastward and spared Key West the direct, catastrophic hit keys 20 miles above and farther up US 1 experienced. The "dirty side" of Category 4 Irma would have devastated Key West and its lovely tree canopy in the older parts of town.

After forming off the west coast of Africa, Irma was steered straight at Key West by African shamans upset with the city having put a dog park on top of an African slave cemetery. That had made the news in Key West earlier in 2016. 

Angels of the Lord overrode the shamans and spared Key West Irma's dirty side, because Kari Dangler was trapped there. I can imagine interesting karma stemming from the way the city government and its police and hospital and homeless shelter treated Kari after Irma.

two citizen members of the Key West hospital district board contacted me yesterday about the saga of the homeless woman Kari Dangler

Continuing the Kari Dangler/Lower Keys Medical Center-KOTS saga reported the past few days at this blog ...

This morning, Kari told me on the telephone that she was able to speak by telephone yesterday with the registered nurse, Eddi, at the Florida Department of Health office in Key West, about the KOTS (city homeless shelter) client Kari heard has tuberculosis. Kari said Eddi said her office dealt with TB and she would look into it. Kari said she saw the KOTS client in the hospital cafeteria yesterday and she moved across the lunchroom when she saw Kari.

Kari said she got very little sleep last night in a city bus shelter. It was raining. She was wet. She's still really weak from having gastroenteritis, urinary tract infection and pneumonia, and she's still really sore from being run over from behind on her bicycle, by a speeding electric bike hit-and-run driver on the North Roosevelt Blvd sidewalk. She did not throw up yesterday after drinking liquid yogurt. The first day in a while she did not throw up. The yogurt was the first food she'd had in days. She was throwing up water for days. She tried to eat an orange this morning and nearly threw up. I said to leave off eating fresh fruit, for now. 

I told Kari two citizen members of the hospital district board  contacted me yesterday by email about her saga, and I hope their involvement will lead to her getting help and other changes being made.

I have reported that Kari told me she was kicked out of KOTS for 2 weeks by the shelter manager, Lottie, because she told a KOTS woman client that her coughing was keeping the women in the female dorm awake. Kari had been in the county jail with the woman and had heard her talk with women inmates and the jail infirmary nurse about her having TB. After being kicked out of KOTs by Lottie on a rainy night, Kari went to the hospital and was told by someone who worked there, that the coughing woman had TB. Kari called Lottie and told her the woman had /TB. Lottie said that was confidential information. How did Kari get it? Kari said she had friends in high places.

So far, I have heard nothing from any of the local city and county officials. Nor from KOTS and Southern Assistance Homeless League, which manages KOTS for the City of Key West. Nor from the hospital's management. Nor from the Key West Citizen and Florida Keys news. Yesterday, I published an email from the editor of Key West the Newspaper, declining to get involved.

Yesterday's email from a member of the hospital district's citizen board of directors, who helped lead the charge a few years back to rectify many problems at the hospital.

Dear Sloan

I read your blog yesterday and was therefore already aware of events said to have occurred at LKMC and KOTS

You appear to have sent this to the Lower Keys Hospital District Board but I cannot see any indication that you have advised Lower Keys Medical Center

As you may know I am the District Board’s nominee on the Board of Trustees of LKMC and am by copy of this email advising them of the blog  but think it would be very beneficial if you could summarise your complaint which I assume you are making on behalf of Kari Dangler.  Are you authorised by her to do so?     One immediate problem is HIPPA which clearly precludes the hospital discussing Ms Dangler’s health issues with anyone other than her.

The other is, I am not (I’m afraid to say) entirely clear what it is you are claiming the hospital failed to do.  I think you are saying they sent her back to KOTS prematurely and in another case breached HIPPA by revealing the health status of another KOTS resident to staff at the shelter.

Nonetheless, I will pass this on to Mr Clay at LKMC so that he is aware of this.

Regards
Bryan Green

Hi, Bryan -

Thanks for your reply and interest.

In the recipients box of my emails to the various local officials and journalists was: Feedback@LKMC.com

I found that on the CEO's page at the hospital's website:

We hope you find our website user friendly and a helpful tool in gathering important healthcare information and answers. If you seek care at Lower Keys Medical Center, you will find that our physicians, nurses and staff work together as a team of health care and mental health professionals that provide you with the best experience possible.
How may we help you? If you have any concerns, questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact us.

Chief Executive Officer
Feedback@LKMC.com
(305) 294-5531


I hoped, therefore, that my emails reached Mr. Clay.

As for your questions:

I was authorized by Kari Dangler, verbally, over the telephone, to address what is in my emails.

I know the hospital cannot discuss Kari's medical with me, without her written authorization. I think she was happy with the hospital's treatment of her, while she was in there for gastroenteritis, urinary tract infection and pneumonia. However, she was distressed to be discharged before she was able to take care of herself. She said she had not been allowed to get out of bed to use the toilet or bathe up to the day she was discharged.

Kari said she had a homeless man friend staying nights in her hospital room, looking out for her, who was a witness. She had done the same for him, when he was earlier in the hospital near death a couple of times.

Kari was distressed that when she went back to the ER, and they found blood in her urine and put her in a hospital room, the same doctor, who had dismissed her the time before, came by and told her she was sending her home the next day.

Kari was distressed when she later went back to the ER with vomiting and was given morphine, she said, and something to stop her vomiting, and she was dismissed. By then, she had been thrown out of KOTS for 2 weeks and was sleeping outside.

Same, when Kari went back to the ER after more days of vomiting, and was given a script for something to stop vomiting, she said, and told to drink gatorade, and was discharged with no place to sleep inside at night.

I personally am not concerned, nor do I think Kari is concerned, that someone in the hospital told her the KOTs female client had TB. (Kari already knew from being in jail with the infected woman, that she had TB.) The matter now had grown much larger than protecting the privacy of that poor woman and what appeared to be the KOTs manager letting her stay at KOTs, and maybe trying to keep a lid on it, and kicking Kari out of KOTs for doing what I would have done, if I had been sleeping there.

I hope KOTS and/or the Florida Department of Health find that poor woman with TB a place to live inside, which is safe for her and other people.

I will bring Kari up to date when we next talk on the telephone, and then I might have more to tell you.

Board member Dr. Leslie Thompson also wrote to me today, and I'm copying her with this email, which I hope you will share with whomever connected to the hospital you feel needs to see it.

Warm regards,

Sloan

Sloan,

Sorry I didn’t get back sooner. 


LKMC has a contract with the Lower Keys Hospital District not the City.  The District was created by the State and has taxing authority although they have not taxed residents for many years (since signing the contract) and yes— they must provide care to indigent persons but of course how much care is a matter of definitions.   There is a Board and they have an assistant who does the PR stuff. (They have a horrible record when it comes to responding to public records requests. I would give them a medal for being “the worst” - not including the feds of course — but maybe they will look into Kari’s “indigent care” situation if you approach them.)

We are super busy with constitutional challenges and many other things including a very disturbing situation I can’t talk about just yet so am sorry but we have no ability to add this or anything else to our plates. 

Have you written to the Department of Health about the possible spreading of TB via KoTS?  That would be something they could look into - they could override the HIPPA constraints (unlike us) I would think.

Morning, Naja and others who did or did not yet read the Lower Keys Medical Center and Key West homeless shelter atrocities against the homeless woman Kari Dangler post at my blog yesterday.


Following up on your suggestion yesterday, I looked up the Florida Department of Health online this morning and called the main number on the website. After hearing this or that choice of numbers to press, I heard a number for communicable diseases, including TB. I entered that number and left a voicemail briefly summarizing what I had been told by Kari Dangler about a woman with TB at KOTS. 

I also got a person in another department, a human, who told me someone to call directly, a nurse, first name Eddi. 

I then got a call back from Angela Giaquinto, who said she is the county epidemiologist. Not a physician, but has a Masters Degree in that field. I told her what I had heard from Kari. She said she would look into it today, and that [s]he tried to place people with TB into private housing.

During that call, I got a voicemail from Eddi, the registered nurse in charge of T.B., etc. at the health department. I called her back and reported what I had told Angela. Eddi said the hospital is supposed to report T.B. cases to her office, and she wanted to speak with Kari. Eddi then said a patient had walked in and she asked me to call her back with Kari's telephone number, which I did later. I also called Angela back and left a voicemail with Kari's number. I gave both their numbers to Kari, because her cell phone ringer is not working and she has to see the screen on her phone light up to know she is getting a call. Kari said she would call them.

This morning, I asked Kari again how she had learned the KOTS client had TB? Kari said again that she had gotten that information from someone at the hospital, after the shelter manager Lottie had kicked her out of KOTS for 2 weeks for talking to the woman client about her coughing in the women's trailer dorm. Kari also said that some time ago she had known the woman client in the county jail and had heard the woman and her inmate friends talking about her having TB, and she had heard the jail infirmary nurse talk with the woman about having TB.

Kari told me yesterday evening, that she had gone back to the hospital emergency room earlier yesterday and was assigned a bed in ER. She threw up water into a sanitary bag and asked the staff if any of them wanted to see her vomit and have it analysed? Nobody said anything. They gave her a prescription for something that would counter her throwing up and told her to drink gatorade and discharged her.

Kari told me last night, that she was so weak from not eating and throwing up, that she could not ride her bicycle away from the hospital yesterday, and she had used a city transit bus to get into Key West. She kept throwing up water. This morning, she said she bought and drank some liquid yogurt and did not throw it up, but felt like she might. She said she still is really weak. 

She sounds really weak on the telephone. She sounds at risk. It is not like her to go to a doctor or a hospital, unless she feels terrible and sees no other option.

Whatever duty, contract or otherwise, the hospital has to receive and treat indigent patients, I think, once the hospital admits someone into the ER, the hospital has a much higher legal, professional and ethical duty to indigent patients.

I don't live in Key West now. I got involved in this because you pointed me to it in a dream. You did not look happy. You looked put out. I can imagine karma that would cause everyone living in Key West to look unhappy and be put out.

Lower Keys Medical Center and Key West homeless shelter atrocities against the homeless woman Kari Dangler

Two days of increasingly bad feelings in my gut and body fluids, and accompanying slowly revealing dreams of mine and a mainland friend, led to the cheery email below, to Key West city officials, the Monroe County State Attorney, Lower Keys Medical Center, various esteemed Key West and Florida Keys journalists, and Monroe County, Florida (Keys) officials:

Dear Key West Mayor Teri Johnston, City Manager Jim Scholl, City Attorney Shawn Smith, City Commissioner Sam Kaufman and other city officials, State Attorney Dennis Ward, Lower Keys Medical Center Chief Executive Officer David Clay, various esteemed Key West and Florida Keys journalists, and Monroe County Commissioners, County Attorney and County Administrator :

I was told this morning on the telephone by Key West homeless woman Kari Dangler, that she went to Lower Keys Medical Center (LKMC) Emergency Center Emergency Room (ER) yesterday, complaining of several days of throwing up water. She said she had been unable to eat food during that time. She was admitted and examined by an ER doctor, and was given morphine and was sent away. 

Kari and I speak daily on the telephone. 

She told me yesterday, that she had spoken with her mother on the telephone, and was told this is not a good time to come home to live with her parents on the mainland. Kari has no place else to go and not be homeless.

Kari is a long-time vodka addict. She told me today that she had not drunk vodka for about 5 days, and before that her vodka intake was minimal, because it did not agree with her after two earlier recent hospitalizations at LKMC, for gastroenteritis, urinary tract infection, pneumonia and blood in her urine. You can read more about that, and about her first two unconscionable discharges by LKMC, in the copy of the email below my sign off to this email. 

Since shortly after the first of the three unconscionable discharges, Kari has sounded clear-headed when we talked on the phone. She sounded clear-headed this morning. She said she does not think she is in the DTs, which she has experienced by going into private rehab seven times, and by being put into the Sheriff's jail on Stock Island maybe half dozen times and being detoxed by the jail infirmary. 

It is my understanding from what I have heard on US 1 Radio, and have read in the Key West Citizen, Florida Keys News and Key West the Newspaper, and from having talked at length with the latter newspaper's publishers, Arnaud and Naja Girard, in whose home I was renting an efficiency apartment in Key West, that Lower Keys Medical Center has a contract with the City of Key West to provide medical care to indigent residents. 

It is my understanding of the law, that hospitals have a legal duty to property treat and care for patients they admit.

It is my understanding of the Hippocratic Oath, that physicians have a professional and moral duty to do all they can to help and to not harm their patients.

It is my understanding from many years of observation, that Key West's official "One Human Family" philosophy is selectively enforced.

It is my understanding of journalism, that journalists have a professional duty to report the news regardless of their personal sentiments.

While I know it is not the view of any recipients of this email, Kari Dangler is a seer. I have personal knowledge of her predictions. One was, a few days before Hurricane Irma would arrive, she told me she had seen two giant hands and arms come down from the sky and nudge Irma slightly eastward.

Kari told me that, since she was a young woman, she had predictive visions and dreams. 

Kari being trapped in Key West was why Angels of the Lord nudged Hurricane Irma slightly eastward, which spared Key West the catastrophic direct hit the more easterly keys up US 1 received.

I tell you that about Kari, to round out my suggestion that all of you would do well in the karma arena, to also read the copy of the email below, and then do all you can to help rectify what LKMC and KOTS have done to Kari Dangler and, I can only imagine, to other homeless people.

The REDACTED second topic in the copy of the email below was about a different topic.

Sincerely yours,

Good morning, Naja and Arnaud -

Hope all okay with you.

Naja came to me in a dream before dawn today, pushing me to report on two different topics.

The first topic

Kari Dangler had a number of interesting things happen in the past month or so,  which caused me to try to persuade her to leave KW on Greyhound back to Missouri and her parents, before something a lot worse happens to her.

About a month ago, Kari said a man come up to her in her hidey hole the night before, after she saw a shooting star. He said she knew who he was and where he had come from. She thought he meant the shooting star and he was an angel. He said she had a purpose, she needed to change, and she needed to leave Key West. He turned and left. She was terrified and shit in her pants.

Then, she contracted a urinary tract infection, gastroenteritis, and pneumonia. Then, she was in Lower Keys Medical Center. Then, still at death's door, too week to even be allowed by her doctor and the nurses to get up and go to the bathroom in her hospital room, she was discharged by her doctor after the supervisor nurse had told her they sent a lot sicker patients than her, home. That night, Kari was back at the ER room, and was diagnosed with blood in her urine. The doctor said that would be caused by either stomach or liver trouble. Liver tests were done, Kari's liver was okay. Kari was readmitted and given a room in the hospital. Same doctor came into her room and told her she was being discharged next morning and sent home. Kari said she had no home, she lived on the street, was banned from KOTS. That also was in the hospital's records. The nurse supervisor called KOTS and they told her Kari could stay there at night. I don't know if that was because the ban had been lifted, or KOTS wanted to help the hospital. Kari stayed at KOTS that night, and thereafter.

I emailed Mayor Teri Johnston, City Manger Jim Scholl and City Attorney Shawn Smith and City Commissioner Sam Kaufman about all of that, and that Kari had said the KOTS director, Lottie somebody, was doing a great job, including crawling up under the women's trailer dorm and trying to fix the air conditioning unit.. Kari told me the AC then was fixed. Kari later told me that the mayor,and  city commissioners and city officials came to KOTS to check it out. 

Kari later reported to me an incident with a women in the trailer dorm at KOTS, which caused the night monitor to make the woman leave for the night. The woman was talking after lights out. She would not be quiet. She was handicapped. Used walker crutches. And seemed mentally compromised. I emailed Teri Johnston, Jim Scholl, Shawn Smith and Kim Romano about that. Kim is Teri's executive assistant. Before that, Kim ran Womankind in Key West.

A few days ago, Kari reported riding her bicycle into town from KOTS on the North Roosevelt Blvd sidewalk. She was run over from behind by a man on a speeding electric bicycle and was knocked off her bike onto the ground and suffered bruised limbs and lacerations. Her homeless friend Joe Patton was following her and saw the whole thing. A woman on a passing bicycle said she was calling 911. The man on the electric bike started to leave. Kari asked him if he wasn't going to stick around until the authorities came? The man said he had to get to work, and he rode away on his electric bike. No authorities came. Kari called KWPD. They said nothing they could do, because she had moved away from where she was run over. Kari called City Hall and asked to speak to the mayor or her assistant, Kim. Kari was told the mayor was not there and nobody named Kim worked there. I had told Kari that Kim Romano was Teri Johnston's executive assistant.

Two days ago, Kari told me that she was called on the carpet by the KOTS night monitor, because she had asked a woman in the female trailer dorm to stop shuffling papers and keeping Kari and the other women awake. The woman reported that to the night monitor. The monitor told Kari to bring such complaints to the monitor, instead of talking with the clients. Kari said she preferred to deal with people directly.

Last night, Kari told me she was kicked out of KOTS for two weeks, by Lottie. Here's how Kari said that came about. 

A woman client was coughing, coughing, coughing in the female trailer dorm, keeping the other women awake. A female client told the woman she was keeping everyone else awake. The coughing woman did not stop coughing. Kari told the woman she was keeping everyone awake. Another female client went to the night monitor and complained about Kari harassing the coughing woman, who was sick. The monitor told Kari she had to come to the monitor. Lottie then kicked Kari out for 2 weeks. It was raining. Kari went to the hospital and spoke with someone there she knows about the coughing woman. Kari was told the coughing woman has TB. Kari called Lottie and told her that. Lottie told Kari that was confidential information. Lottie asked Kari how she knew about the TB? Kari said she had friends in high places. Kari said she got soaked last night, got no sleep, and a man came to her in a vision during the night and told her she needs to stick close to KOTS and try to speak to someone there who has authority over the other people working there.

I will copy Teri Johnston, Jim Scholl, Shawn Smith and Sam Kaufman with all of the above. 

Please let me know if you will investigate the above. If not, I will copy it to the Key West Citizen and Florida Keys News.

The second topic is just for your information, for now.
