I agree, 19 years later and still reason to celebrate, pop that cork! Good for the husband and director of the center against cancer. Thank you for sharing your story!

    Hello @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    In February my sister is birthday, she was actually born in May.
    A fall, a slight blow to the head, the ice made him slip.
    Apparently nothing had happened but a few hours later the world was complicated.
    An urgent operation to relieve the pressure in the brain but ups, did not put drainage.
    The improvement was progressing to worsening and intensive care.
    Her friend (director of the center against cancer) and calls from Italy (her husband is Italian) with strong and high words (sometimes necessary) brought together a team that was resting to do the second operation, which fortunately was definitive.
    Weeks later the three brothers with hair at 0, we had a great bottle of Vega Sicilia wine from the 85 this was in 2004 19 years of wine well taken advantage of.
    Great buzz full of feeling.

    #39 Wow @mohammed sultan how kind of you to say. I think much of what comes naturally to me came from my years of working in Respiratory Therapy and the Cardiac Lab. Once you work in Healthcare it never leaves you. I appeared calm on the outside but I felt like I was falling apart on the inside. I have to give kudos to my brother in law too, he's been a rock of support for my sister and his daughter (my sister too, when their daughter had leukemia). I just love them so much!! If we lose our composure during a crisis, we are of no help to anyone. I broke down when it was over and I was all alone.

    wonderfully posted post @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher! mistakes are natural to human s and we acknowledge to console us too, proving we are resilient, and capable to gain our usual spirit. but, we may not forget correctness and perfections are also made by humans, heralding us with a hope to survive with a renewed spirit and enthusiasm. are n't we expect positive delivery from their end who are suppose to render a service on which they are expertise? why should we surrender to our fate by acknowledging mistakes and destiny, which may engulf us with disappointment? however, lovely insightful post madam. thank you for the share.

    #35 That's a great idea to make a checklist @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. It's a topic most people wouldn't even think about until it starts happening. Of course you should trust the experts know what they are doing, right? But when you see that they don't, there's no where to turn to besides Google and hope you find what you're looking for.

    #33 Your poor grandma, good thing for your mom! This has been an issue for years but people were less informed before the internet. Not that we should use google as our Dr, but there are common sense things to utilize it for. Wow, how horrible that your sister in law was not only misdiagnosed with MS @Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador but given the wrong meds as well, that's scary! Did they ever figure out what was really wrong with her? It sounds like you are highly aware of the importance of advocating on behalf of our loved ones too. It is vital to prepare in advance... maybe I will make a simple check list and people can print it off in case they ever need it.

    #32 That's a lot of loved one @Irene Hackett, and what a wise and loving person to help others as an advocate. You wrote this: "I always research the meds too - and write down the dosages and when they have been given. " A big one, thanks for adding that! Do you mind if I add it to my list? I do the same, because it's hard to keep track and I also use a drug interaction calculator to make sure they aren't giving drugs that interact w/another toxically. Sending hugs, so many curve balls get thrown at people in life!!

    #28 You really have to keep track of everything. For my grandmother I don't know all the specifics as I was pretty young at the time - 11. But I do remember that she specifically wasn't being brought meals and so missing her feedings. My mother would check the charts to see what was supposed to be happening and noticed what wasn't happening. Another one, my sister-in-law was misdiagnosed with MS and was treated with a lot of medications that damaged her has a result before they figured out it was something else. While she's recovering now, she went from being able to run marathons to struggling to walk.

    I can go on an on with stories. The bottom line, is what what say - you need to be your own advocate. It's important to understand that before you have a crisis too.

    #24 Great line @Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador, "If you're not a nail, find the right tool." So true! I'm sorry your son had to see many Dr's before finding the 'right' doctor. That's another point to bring up and I'm glad you mentioned it- if a person feels there is something being missed, don't stop 'doctor shopping,' until you feel secure with the Physician knowing he/she looking into everything possible and if they can't find answers yet feel there is something going on, a good Physician without an ego will refer you to a specialist. We had a very bad experience with a health issue that was being mishandled and a misdiagnosis, so I went to UPMC's website (always good to find a top notch facility in certain instances) and I looked for a specific Dept first, then checked healthgrades and read bio's on Physicians listed w/in the Dept I found suitable. I emailed the Department with specifics and we ended up with an appointment 2 weeks later with the Medical Director, all of my husband's Physician's are located there now thanks to referrals. It should not have to be this complicated. Thanks for your comment Larry and that's so sad about your grandmother being fed after a stroke, I'm assuming she wasn't able to swallow well at all?

The 'organic' part always will be, but we are on the cusp of making a great deal of the 'administrative' headaches a thing of the past as we are on the cusp of exponential technologies which should enable us to start fixing humanity's problems in an iterative way - trying something, seeing it in action, and then tweaking for better results.
