Another reminder of Colonel Rich Higgins

Sometimes, the searches that bring people to my blog are fascinating to follow. I learn a lot in the process, and often find things that I may never have looked into in the process. I have found one article tonight that is in this latest category. In all of my reading about Colonel Rich Higgins, I had never seen this one on World Net Daily.

This is the point of my reminder to McCain the other day, and I had previously blogged about him in July. Prior to that, I had found a now gone (and even then, the links did not work... ) webpage that I posted here just to try to keep his memory alive, a full year before that.

It angers me that some think more of the detainee 'alleged' terrorists than they do for our own even today....

In the article, reference is made to a letter that Robin Higgins, Colonel Rich Higgins widow, had written in USA Today the Friday before the column was written. I am unable to find that letter, but would really like to read it if anyone else happens to have access to it.

"Retired Lt. Col. Robin Higgins, wife of the late U.S. Marine Col. William R. "Rich" Higgins, wrote a must-read letter in Friday's USA Today."

God bless!

Fwd: JAMA: Terminal Withdrawal of Life-Sustaining Supplemental Oxygen

This came from Nancy Valko, RN today, and I share her concern. I HAVE seen this done, and it has always boggled my mind that such a simple COMFORT MEASURE would be taken away from any one. I, too, have seen people gasping -- NOT Cheyne-Stokes.

Having asthma, I can assure you that it is NOT comfortable in the least.

God Bless!

Comment: Although I can't get the entire article here, it's truly outrageous to consider withdrawing such a simple comfort treatment ALREADY in use when, apparently, the only possible reason is to hasten death.
Unfortunately, I've seen this done with the so-called "terminal weans" involving people who don't die fast enough after being removed from ventilators and I've seen people gasping for air even though apparently unconscious. I protested vigorously when this first happened and fortunately, this stopped in my hospital-for the time being.

Terminal Withdrawal of Life-Sustaining Supplemental Oxygen

Scott D. Halpern, MD, PhD, MBioethics; John Hansen-Flaschen, MD

JAMA. 2006;296:1397-1400.

Since this article does not have an abstract, we have provided the first 150 words of the full text and any section headings.

An influential report released in 1983 defined life-sustaining therapies as "all health care interventions that have the effect of increasing the life span of the patient."1 This definition is highly inclusive: aspirin for stable coronary artery disease, intravenous antibiotics for osteomyelitis, and mechanical ventilation for respiratory failure all qualify. However, when considering withholding or withdrawing life-sustaining interventions, clinicians commonly refer to a more discrete group of therapies intended to forestall impending death by augmenting or replacing a vital bodily function. A hallmark of life-sustaining therapies, therefore, is that withholding or withdrawing them leads to physiologic decompensation foreseeably to cardiac arrest.

Supplemental oxygen has not commonly been considered a life-sustaining therapy. Yet it clearly serves this purpose for spontaneously breathing patients in whom pulmonary gas exchange is so impaired that the needs of vital organs cannot be met with ambient air . . . [Full Text of this Article]

Concerns About Balancing the Burdens and Benefits of Supplemental Oxygen

"At Least I Tried...." OH?

I have watched the interview on Fox News three times now, and have come to the conclusion that there was a set up. Definitely a set-up.

The program begins with Chris Wallace saying that Clinton had agreed to his first ever interview on Fox News.

And then, it gets out of hand with accusations of being 'set-up', finger pointing, jabbing in the air, angry facial expressions, and leaving a flabber-gasted Chris Wallace sitting there wondering what had happened.

I have seen the looks and the finger pointing one other time, in an interview that I ALSO felt was a set-up...for all of us... the same man stood before the country telling all of us in a VERY self-righteous way, that he had never had sexual relations with 'that woman'.... and he sounded just like he did this time then, to me.

So... who set whom up?

I personally think, after watching what happened three full times... Clinton set Wallace and Fox News up, intending to 'get angry' from the outset, even to the point of steering that conversation toward the topic that set him off. Remember, this man is a 'charmer', and can 'smile falsely' with the best of them, diplomatically, of course. He also has been proven to lie, even under oath, and to twist words (it depends on what 'is'... is).

I do not believe, for one minute, that he could not sit through a thirty minute interview without this reaction, on ANY topic. We have watched him do it a myriad of times in the past, including when he did not look very comfortable at ALL, in the presence of Pope John Paul II after a private audience.... and one can only imagine what was said in the twenty minute or so private audience to produce this look...

I just am not a believer of the things this man says or does, and I have not been for a very long time.

So yes, I think that there was a set-up, and that the one who did the setting up tried very hard to look like a victim, AGAIN... of the right wing conspiracy people in his first time ever live interview on Fox News...

God bless.
