Jett's Early years, Diagnosis and the Purif. Rundown. Okay, with everything that's come out in the past few days, recently someone posted a thread about the Purification Rundown and how it can cause side effects similar to Kawasaki Syndrome (rash, swelling). I think I may have come up with a possible scenario on what went on before and after Jett's 'official' diagnosis. Here it is; feel free to correct/add anything. Much of this is based on mere speculation, what is already known about the COS's methods and some facts about autism. April 3rd 1992: Jett Travolta is born. Now we don't know anything about the first two years of Jett's life, but the sake of argument, let's say that for the first 12 months, Jett appears to be a healthy baby. As time goes on, something is amiss. He isn't talking, has 'odd' behaviors and seems overly sensitive to things like loud noises. Now being the high level Scientologists that they are, John and Kelly are very worried about how 'management' will view their son, who clearly isn't 'normal'. They need to fix it, and fix it fast. Enter the Purification Rundown. What could have happened (feel free to correct me if I'm missing anything) is that the Travolta's were convinced to put Jett through their 'detox regime'. Which we all know by now to involve sitting in saunas and ingesting high doses of vitamins and vegetable oil. It's entirely possible that put Jett through a version of the detox program. According to reports (unclear if they're true, Jett was rushed to the hospital at the age of 2, with a rash, severe swelling and a high fever. The Travolta's then claim he was diagnosed with Kawasaki Syndrome. Let's take a look at that a little more closely. They claim Kawasaki Syndrome, which symptoms include high fever, swelling and rash. Earlier, someone posted that the Purification Rundown can cause swelling, rash and fever(?) The possibility should not be ruled out; Jett was misdiagnosed at two years old with Kawasaki Syndrome when, in reality, he had been put through the detox program and nearly died as a result. If it were a Sci- approved doctor, then the misdiagnosis was clearly deliberate because hey, autism doesn't exist. After this diagnosis, it was easy for the Travolta's and Scientology to blame Kawasaki Syndrome for Jett's behavior. This allowed them to live in denial of the possibility that Jett had autism and refute any claims and speculation that he did. Admitting it would have severely reduced their status in the 'church'. Now, as for the Travolta's leaving; Honestly, I don't see that happening anytime soon. If anything, the Travolta's may cling tighter to the COS as a result. What person would want to publicly admit that they had been wrong this whole time and that their 'beliefs' may have very well cost their child his life? I realize I wasn't very coherent, but bear with me; with everything that's come out over the past few days, my brain is a bit fried. And I really need to cut back on the fried stuff. Corrections? Additions?
