    Funerals are fast becoming my new social activity... A far cry to the student parties I went to in Dunedin
    Now-if I could just remember where I left my brain...

    I've noticed that too, that as I get older more and more people are having funerals. Funny that.

    Not more people.....more people you know.


    Friend of mine, 63, got some horrible news. She has aorta issues, it's ripping.
    If she does nothing, well they said go visit relatives now......

    If she has the several surgeries, each time, it's not a maybe it's a definitely she'll have a major stroke, requiring full time care type stroke. And it might be fatal anyway.

    She has a week to get back to them.
    Horrible decision.

    Dad died as a result of an aortic aneurysm. There are many worse ways to die - at least he had time to say goodbye, he wasn't in massive pain, and he had his dignity to the end. He was also 63 like your friend. I am not sure what I would choose in your friend's situation, but I would certainly have a living will (as I do now) to help protect against some zealot doctor in the event of an adverse outcome such as you describe.

    Hmm. i haven't noticed that. Maybe there's rationing, but 'round here they're pretty strongly sticking to one per person.

    it used to be.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    It's an aortic dissection. She already had one. That got patched, that's leaking. The new one is ripping.

    She has pain now, she had pain the first time. Heaps of it. Ambulance gave her morphine.

    The first time, ambulance took her in to hospital a 20 min trip...jnr doc said aortic dissection, snr one said no (cause she wasn't dead), and stuck her in a bed for 5 days. She was told she was imagining things, pulled out of bed to make her walk (she couldn't), given paracetamol, until a new doc came on and finally did a scan. She had 6 rips.
    Lost a kidney, damage to other. No apology.

    That was 7 years ago.
