Whittington Back in ICU (FNC Reporting Minor Heart Attack)
WJIM-AM | February 14, 2006 | be-baw

Posted on 02/14/2006 10:09:50 AM PST by be-baw

I just heard from a local radio reporter (during Rush newsbreak at approximately 1:00 p.m) that Whittington "may have taken a turn for the worse," and was put back into intensive care.

I am in shock.

You know, just when we think they can't go any lower, they do.

I feel like I stay in perpetual shock lately.

She sounded like an idiot. Very unprofessional she said "HELLO, a wound to the chest is not rocket science" and "this is just not something you blow off" "HELLO"

DO NOT LET HILLARY VISIT HIM... DO NOT LET HILLARY VISIT HIM... Hopefully that is written in big red letters across his chart.

This hospital has a thousand doctors....per press report. It is not a small rural hospital.

Hubby says a 28 guage pellets are smaller then the tip of a pin needle

The gun is a 28 guage but that has nothing to do with the size of the shot. The shot shell size determines how big the pellets are. My bird hunting hubby says Cheney was probably using #9 shot for quail, which are small pellets, but there are a number of shells that can fit into a 28 guage. The higher the shot shell size the smaller the pellets.

Isn't Linda's maternity leave over yet? It was for a year - she should be back within a couple months - whether or not they give her back HER show is another story.

I'm sick about all this, knowing how Cheney must feel.

Totally agree. The way the media has treated this good man all these years, this is just the worst he could need now!

And prayers for Mr. Whittington.

She's WAY out of line.
I didn't catch her name.

How can she do that over the phone?

She can't .. she has never met or seen the patient

Giving an opinion of different possibilities is one thing

What she just did was over the line

A PETA rep was on Tucker Carlson's show (yes, it's still on) on MSNBC (ditto) last night. Well, actually it was a guy from the Humane Society, but he was making the points you would expect.

Calm down - remember that Frist gave his uninformed medical opinion of Schiavo too early as well - everything will get sorted out. I'm just hoping they keep the publicity away from Whittington.

What on earth are you suggesting?
Not suggesting anything, just odd how someone can be "peppered" with shot, and have one enter the bloodstream (or work it's way thru the skin and muscle) travel all the way to the heart, and lodge there.
If anything I am suggesting that maybe we don't have all the details.

Let's get this straight: this guy was in a STEP DOWN UNIT; he was STILL on the ICU floor.

The reporters are making it sound like he was almost out the door and was rushed back.

And let's get this straight: is it BB's or birdshot?

Check the local gun club, or a good gun shop. They'll know someone who does custom reloading. You'll make some guy happy. He'll have a chance to use his 29 ga. stuff that's been sitting on the shelf. He'll charge you a bit for it, but you'll be the only guy on the block with 28 ga. slugs...that's for sure.

Sorry .. I was quickly typing and should have posted everything my hubby said

I believe the bottom line is .. the pellets are very small

FWIW, birdshot is really, really small. Tiny. So it can be in all kinds of places and stay there forever.

This is not fishy. Frankly, it is not of our business. IF it had been the VP that had been injured, we would be in a different situation. But the VP accidentally injuring a fellow hunter is not. It is the kind of thing that would be in the paper, but not as the banner headline.

Frankly, the fishy part is how the press is making it into something it is not.

Brit gave her an appropriate smackdown for that comment.

I'm concerned for Cheney's health. The stress of this ordeal is undoubtedly weighing heavy on the Vice President's own heart.

The rumor was already out there this morning and the hospital had issued a statement they would not comment until the press conference - it's not Scott's fault no one asked him about it, is it?
