A.J. has been left waiting for a kidney after being born without any. His mother says it’s all due to red tape between the hospital and police. The surgery was scheduled and the father was ready to give it over to his “miracle baby” but they were shut down. Dickerson was arrested for violating his probation last month and charged with possession of a firearm. The Emory Hospital sent a letter to the jail asking if he could be brought briefly to the hospital for bloodwork and a pre-operative appointment at the end of September. They explained that they wanted to keep the surgery on schedule to save A.J.’s life. Once he was released, he says that the hospital’s tone changed.
