Ment: Lots to Ponder

Posted by winedoc @ 11:36 on November 2, 2014  

I was conversing with a colleague friday,   he works in Palliative care, and sadly, he had a more than a brush with bowel  cancer and is back working, with an unclear future.

Man,  If that was me,  I  would be retiring on what ever I had in the bank …….

I was amazed with his optimism and clarity.  Whether he still “needs” to work, I don’t know.  I’m sure he’s  thought about it,   ……..   and much more …….

Still, He has a lot to offer his patients, and I applaud him for that.

I said,  “Mike” we can’t afford health care the way it is can we ??  ……..

We both agreed,  for example ……  very elderly patients having 3-4 or more rounds of chemo,  and  on the other  side of the coin, waste,   waste and  more wasted resources.

I mean, a $900 mri scan of a “toe” ……  while a plain film gives the same information.

Indeed ……  pass the wine

I  Enjoy your posts and musings

Best Regards
