Kimberly, looks like you got some help. Although we try to stay as close to real life as possible in our writing, sometimes you have to twist it a little to write the story you want to write. If the rescue of his loved ones was a major enough event (big news story) the hospital might feel they had to take him back.
Thanks, Jill. That is a good point. And, the fact that his father, the senator and his staff are involved in the this would be a big news takedown. The hospital might be apt to take him back in.
