Hi Edna
Sorry to hear about your son. My name is Roger from London and my dear brother-in-law Yigal is suffering from kidney cancer in Tel Aviv. He has constant hiccups and the doctors have suggested he try ether but they didn't think there was any in Israel. I cannot believe this as its use is widespread in scientifict experimentation. Do you know where he can obtain ether in Tel Aviv? I know it hasn't worked for your son, but it might work for Yigal.
By the way,, there was a case in London where a guy had the hiccups for 30 years before they found out that it was something in his diet that was causing it. As soon as he stopped having his favourite breakfast food, his hiccups stopped. Check your son's diet thoroughly and go through a process of elimination.
Kol Toov ve'be'hatzlacha.
