Interesting you mention those x-rays that never produced reported results. This is not the first time I have heard of this. And I am going out on a limb when I say this because I have no proof, but I suspect that at times something is wrong and it is not reported to the patient. I believe it may be common practice with the elderly. My mom was never told when she was terminal. Actually, I figured it out and flatly demanded an answer. I hold programs for people in nursing homes. I am the self appointed happy person that loves everybody, especially those without a family. In doing this, I have come to love these people as family. They tell me their symptoms, their fears, they rely on me for prayer as though I have the key that will release God's healing powers. And then I silently watch. Very recently I realized that Mr. Clyde has colon cancer. And at the very same time I realized that he has no clue. He is very happy and optimistic and every week he says that because of my prayers he feels better. But he is getting thinner. And I notice that when they are about to die, they transfer them to hospice and so far nobody has lasted more than two days there. Is this just in my area or is it widespread?
I also peeked in the kitchen one day when the door was ajar. It was full of restaurant canned foods. So all these people with congestive heart failure are being fed sodium. No wonder they are all getting worse. And get this, they aren't being told that they have congestive heart failure. I am telling them that that's what they have. I check for edema and yes, it is there.
