...in the news

Bush being attacked...by shoes?



I probably wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it. It was like a bad comedy skit.

Woman sues doctor for painful childbirth.

Ummm...Initially, I was slightly speechless. Was there ever any doubt in anyone's mind that childbirth is painful? And this woman, I really didn't understand. This was child number FIVE. Now, I have been told by some women that childbirth can get easier after the first. Maybe that was what she was thinking?

Anyway, after reading the story further, I understand the woman's point. This doctor was just plain rude. He claimed that there was no time to get medications ready, telling her that she would the pain that she deserved for not calling ahead of time. He made her push before she was fully dilated. Then made her go through the pain of unnecessary stitches after the birth. It definitely sounds as if this doctor made this delivery more painful than it needed to be, both physically and mentally.

Gotta commend Bush for his good ass reflexes.

Yeah that definitely sounds like malpractice to me. SUE! SUE! SUE!

Bush ducked that shoe Palin ducked questions during the debates.

I JUST wrote a blog about lawsuits... but just from what you've said, he probably deserves a swift kick in the arse. I just read another story recently about bad doctors and the effect they have on their co-workers & patients.

Some doctors think they can say and do as they please. When it comes to dealing with peoples bodies they gotta remember to have excellent bed sized manners. That's a vulnerable place to be and no one wants to deal with an ass!
