Before or after they settle up the hospital bill to get her released so she can get to the airport?

Expected she has Encephalitis and medical care has already increased to 70K pounds. Currently sedated, so unless can be woken up, flight and medical team to UK will be expensive.

I was not even sure how encephalitis was spelt !!🙄........and exactly what it was (as she is alleged to have it)...so here's what they say it is...

 

Encephalitis (en-sef-uh-LIE-tis) is inflammation of the brain. There are several causes, but the most common is viral infection.

Encephalitis often causes only mild flu-like signs and symptoms — such as a fever or headache — or no symptoms at all. Sometimes the flu-like symptoms are more severe. Encephalitis can also cause confused thinking, seizures, or problems with senses or movement.

 

Rarely, encephalitis can be life-threatening. Timely diagnosis and treatment are important because it's difficult to predict how encephalitis will affect each individual.

For 20 grand she won't need a flight. She could hire a luxury yacht and arrive home in style.

She will not be flying in business if she is in a induced coma
