Yesterday was a bit crazy as I’m trying to catch up from a few days off due to illness, so I’m still reading posts from yesterday’s Grand Rounds.
Just in case you missed it, The Doctor Is In has a post that you should read. It gives two examples of patients who fought death at great financial expense and asks why it had to happen or if it should have happened. It’s a very honest look at some of the drawbacks to the medical advances of the last quarter century. I think hospice is the answer to some of his bigger questions, but I could be biased. Go read it; it will make you think.
