Well, the boys left the hospital. The Dr had said he could leave, insurance just wanted him there to keep him "safe". Surfer Son just wanted out. Insurance wasn't really happy, but they are OK with it. They are staying in a very nice hotel a block from the hospital ($150/night hotel) Insurance is covering $175/day for Surfer Son accommodations and meals till he leaves.
Surfer Son's return flight was changed to a different airline with a direct flight from Lima. The other two boys had a couple of options, that our insurance was willing to arrange for them (our cost):
1. $1,400/boy = The boys on the same flight with Surfer Son. Leaving Friday morning and in Toronto Friday night.
2. $500/boy = flight to Lima and changing the date of their original flight home. Leaving Sat. night with 2 transfers, getting to Toronto Sunday night.
We really wanted the boys to accompany Surfer Son. We wanted his friends to be with him - he's still confused and having short term memory problems. We decided that we would pay for his two friends to fly home on the same flight. It was the least we could do for everything they did. They kept Surfer Son alive.
Of course the other parents said they'd pay, my Farmer said no.
