re: US Olympian Bode Miller’s Daughter Drowns in Pool - pngtiger
Had a drowning last night too. There were a bunch of anesthesiologist around, kid was pulled out quickly and intubated. Didn’t help. Dad was distraught, mom hadn’t made it yet. It took everything for all the staff to keep from breaking down. Can’t imagine the amount of pain they will go through,...

re: James Lee Burke's Robicheaux (2018) - "La is outdoor asylum" - pngtiger
I’ve read 4 of that series and really enjoyed them. Heavens prisoners (Alec Baldwin, Teri Hatcher), and in the electric mist (with confederate dead) were made into movies. Enjoyed the former, the latter was meh. Burke grew up in south Louisiana/Texas somewhere west of Lafayette, and lives in Mon...

re: Couple were shocked when MRI scan showed son looking just like an alien from Mars Attacks - pngtiger
1. That’s what any baby in utero looks like on CT or MRI 2. MRI is mostly fine during pregnancy, CT however is not. The only time it’s really not is with contrast. In fact, if you can’t get info from an ultrasound, then you try MRI instead of CT...

re: The Resident. Does Anyone Watch It? - pngtiger
Have seen the first 3 episodes, each one making me more irate. The actual disease processes and treatments are spot on, but everything else is just terrible. I’m not going to get into specifics because it would take way too long, but much of the other stuff they do is bull shite. Like the CUTE (cod...

What about The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch? It's about the Enigma machine and what Turing did to break the code. Doesn't have any action military wise, but I enjoyed it. Oh, and agree with the others about The Pacific. It is difficult to get through, especially after BoB. I've tr...

Medical costs at the end of life is astronomical, and NH are pretty bad cost wise. As a medical professional, I wish physician assisted suicide was more accepted/ legal. I mainly deal in trauma, and end of life Care is a huge topic with many families. Also, can’t tell you how many times I’ve ...
