Adelle Biton, the three-year-old infant who was critically injured nearly one year ago when Arab youths threw a rock at her family’s car and hit her directly in the head, was asked to be removed from Lowenstien Hospital in Ra’anana on Tuesday – and her mother Adva is disgusted with the unceremonious eviction.
The attack on Adelle occurred near the Samaria city of Ariel last March, when Arab terrorists hurled stones at the family car. After being in critical condition, the young girl miraculously managed to pull through her potentially fatal wounds, but has only been released from the hospital briefly and temporarily over the long months of recuperation due to the severity of her injuries.
The Biton family has spent most of the last 11 months by Adelle’s hospital bedside, holding a party at the hospital for her third birthday while she was still unconscious last April. Adelle has not fully recovered.
Now, the hospital allegedly wrote Adva in a letter on Tuesday claiming that Adelle has completed the rehabilitative process and received the maximum care for her condition, and therefore the management does not see fit to allow her to stay in the hospital. Following these statements, the Biton family was asked to leave the hospital today.
Biton – who has reportedly not left the hospital yet – called the letter “despicable lies” which do not reflect the reality of Adelle’s condition. The toddler is still only barely conscious.
“I have a girl but she doesn’t communicate, as far as I’m concerned it’s as if she’s living while dead,” Adva told Channel 2 earlier this year.
Biton noted that Lowenstein Hospital staff already asked the family to leave six weeks ago, despite numerous meetings with the hospital’s director clarifying that the family home has not been adapted yet to accommodate Adelle while she is still handicapped.
