*The shaving thing*
Assuming this account to be factual, a heart catheterization usually isn’t an “open” procedure- unless they find something horrible and have to operate stat.
For heart catheterization, they will go througha femoral blood vessel in the thigh/ groin area and feed the exploring tiny cath, and so on, thru to the heart to put in special dye to get a better picture of the heart .
If it did happen, a thirteen year old suddenly having her thigh/ pubic area shaved by a pair of nurses could totally be a deal breaker.

PS: YouTube has the great American Justice episode about Kathy Bush, an alleged Munchausen-y mom
PPS1: Check Beverly Allitt, a British serial killer, who had Munchausen, and murdered babies via Munchausen’s by proxy. YouTube has her episode of Martina Cole’s Lady Killers
Why can’t I see any photos you referenced?
None of the photos referenced in the podcast are here! 🙁 love you ladies regardless !
Can you reference any photos specifically that seem to be missing so we can look into it? Thanks or listening!
She’s referring to the Gypsy Rose picture with her mom and then the one where she is on trial – I was just looking for them too! I’m enjoying the podcast a lot!
Just now going back and listening to your earlier podcasts and felt it necessary to state that shingles can happen at anytime. I’ve had two cases, both in my early 30s. The reason shingles are normally thought of to be an old person’s inflection, is because when they get it they get really bad cases because there immune system is very very compromised. And the age for the shingles shot, is now 50 or older because I just got mine a year ago when I was 51. They are awful and I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.
