Dialysis Treatment in Vieques, Puerto Rico …. “🇵🇷 A 10-12 Hour Commute for Life-Saving Treatment …. HuffPost Reports 🇵🇷 …. “!!

DIALYSIS TREATMENT

~VIEQUES, PUERTO RICO~

This is a topic which is very dear and close to my heart.

As a retired physician, I fully understand the process, the need for treatment, the underlying medical conditions and the meaning of life-saving treatment.

On the other hand, my only brother died of complications of chronic renal failure several years ago. In the aftermath of Hurricane María, I often thought about him and how he would manage to receive this three times a week treatment when the electrical power situation and the hospital care was so lacking in my country.

One year after Hurricane María, Puerto Ricans living in Vieques, go through harrowing, uncomfortable, tiring, exhausting and dangerous ways to receive their treatment.

This video explains their situation.

An American possession with this ‘quality of care’?

Laughable … not!!

In medicine, dialysis is the process of removing excess water, solutes, and toxins from the blood in people whose kidneys can no longer perform these functions naturally.

This is referred to as renal replacement therapy.

Dialysis Patients Are Still Trekking 12 Hours for Care After Hurricane María
Left without a hospital, some Puerto Ricans must travel by plane for lifesaving treatment

Hurricane María totaled Vieques’s hospital, which housed the island’s only dialysis clinic

That set off an ongoing crisis for patients with kidney failure who cannot survive without dialysis and for whom the thrice-weekly round trip to a dialysis center in Humacao on Puerto Rico’s main island, including treatment, takes at least 12 hours.

Keith Olbermann, #76 …. “What’s Happening in Drumpf’s Head? …. Paranoid Delusion …. “!!

PARANOID DELUSION

By Renée Grinnell

A paranoid delusion is the fixed, false belief that one is being harmed or persecuted by a particular person or group of people. Paranoid delusions are known technically as a “persecutory delusion.”

It involves the person’s belief that he or she is being conspired against, cheated, spied on, followed, poisoned or drugged, maliciously maligned, harassed, or obstructed in the pursuit of long-term goals.
Small slights may be exaggerated and become the focus of a delusional system with a person suffers from a paranoid delusion.

The focus of the delusion is often on some injustice that must be remedied by legal action. The affected person may engage in repeated attempts to obtain satisfaction by appeal to the courts and other government agencies.

Individuals with paranoid delusions are often resentful and angry, and may even resort to violence against those they believe are hurting them or a loved one.

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE

A FACE ONLY HIS MOTHER COULD LOVE

Don’t quote me but I read somewhere, in passing, that he’d dreamed about dismantling Medicaid when he was in college.

Guess he’s on his way to do so … or so he thinks!

Found it!!

I’ve Been Dreaming About Kicking Poor Off Medicaid Since I Was a Drunk Frat Boy

the health care entitlements are the big, big, big drivers of our debt. There are three. Obamacare, Medicaid, and Medicare. Two out of three are going through Congress right now. So, Medicaid—sending it back to the states, capping its growth rate. We’ve been dreaming of this since you and I were drinking out of a keg.

SHAME AND CRUELTY: DRACONIAN BILL

Well, they went ahead and did it.

They even celebrated in the Rose Garden.

Yet, that celebration is way premature.

Lawrence O’Donnell compared that ‘partying’ to celebrating at a baseball game after scoring in the first inning.

This ‘bill’, it’s proposal, it’s course through the House only showed who the Republicans really are.

THEIR MASKS DEFINITELY FELL OFF!

Keith starts his installment with a historical perspective of George Frederick Baer.

SHAME AND CRUELTY RIGHT IN OUR FACES!

HortyRex©

BLineMaskBLine

George Frederick Baer (September 26, 1842 – April 26, 1914) was an American lawyer who was the President of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad and spokesman for the owners during the Anthracite Coal Strike of 1902.

“These men don’t suffer! Why, half of them don’t even speak English.”

Baer was confronted with the Coal Strike of 1902 in the anthracite coal fields of eastern Pennsylvania, the largest united strike of the United Mine Workers. The Reading was a major employer in the region, and Baer refused to put down the strike or speak to the strikers, citing Social Darwinist ideas.

Baer’s attitude was released into the papers and became an example of arrogance and superiority.

JIMMY’S HEART, BILLY’S HEART

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you mus know by know that Jimmy Kimmel told his family’s personal story about the birth of his brand new son, Billy.

It’s fitting that this be shared because today, the USA’s House of Representatives, lead by Paul Ryan, are claiming to vote on the third attempt at ‘repeal-replace’ the Affordable Health Care Act.

If you haven’t seen Jimmy’s monologue, I strongly recommend that you look for it in YouTube.

Here’s What Republicans Are Voting For on Thursday, May 4

Quick wrap-up of the bill:

There have been no public hearings.

There’s no final text.
There’s no updated CBO score.
It is opposed by virtually every patient advocacy group and everyone in the health care industry.
Congress is still exempted from the new rules that allow states to waive essential benefits.
It raises premiums dramatically for older people.
It removes Obamacare’s protection against being turned down for a pre-existing condition.
It would steadily gut Medicaid spending for the very poorest.
It removes coverage from at least 24 million people, probably more.
It slashes taxes on the rich by about a trillion dollars over ten years.

GoldSwirl
This is a depraved piece of legislation

It’s a windfall for the rich and promises nothing but misery for the poor. How is it possible that 90% of House Republicans are happily voting in favor of this moral abomination?

SANITY TEST

A sanity test or sanity check is a basic test to quickly evaluate whether a claim or the result of a calculation can possibly be true. It is a simple check to see if the produced material is rational (that the material’s creator was thinking rationally, applying sanity).
