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.

OK. I knew that by the tone of her voice. Seriously. She sounded completely political to me.

Is that crazy?

Thanks for the confirmation.

Well, I see that I wasn't the only one who heard that lunatic. I'm here only for a few minutes, but came upstairs to post my outrage at that vile woman -- "doctor" London.

It's a waste of time for us to be embarassed for her; she's obviously a paid political hack.

She claimed there were reports of atrial fibrillation when he first was treated which should've been a clue... that was just part of her grim analysis.

The same expertise as Dr. James Dobson. None.

The birdshot traveling to this man's heart can be fatal.

It would have the same affect as a blood clot/occlusion on his coronary arteries but in this case anticoagulants won't dissolve the blockage and they can't "stent" the blockage - I would wonder if they could attempt to surgically remove this.

A cardiac arrthymia could be fatal for this poor man.

Lucky for Whittington that one of the best heart surgeons in the country, Dr. Sergio Tavaras, is in Corpus Christi. Dr. Tavaras performed a quadruple bypass and heart valve surgery on my mother.

Upon hearing she had to have the surgery, I nearly had a fit that she wouldn't take advantage of having a great heart surgeon in Houston operate on her. I did get her to come to Houston for a second opinion at Michael DeBakey's practice. She was told that there was no greater heart surgeon than Sergio Tavaras in the entire country! He did a wonderful job and is practically worshiped in South Texas.

I should have known better when Novak showed up last night on Brits show.

I used to like Novak, but he seemed way off his game last night on that show.

Heart Catheterization is a Surgical Procedure. My 1 Year old nephew has to have this done following Open Heart Surgery just after Birth. Also it involves injection of dyes for contrast, Cardiac Angiography. Complications may be Heart Attack or Stroke. elderly People are susceptible to these problems, but it is still fairly low risk.

I said it during Katrina and I'll say it again: today's press is ignorant, rude, ruthless, and relentless.

The sheer audacity they have to question people about things they don't even know about is shocking.

They have virtually NO life experience and no point of historical reference for anything because they are EDUCATED in how this country got to be where we are today; they are "thin" on facts and "fat" on emotions.

We all should be scared to death of what they can drive this country to.

"What is HER expertise to critque these heart doctors in Texas?"

None, just being a DNC operative and being at the end of a phone for a Fox News "Producer" to throw on the air.

Just left a voice mail at 1-888-369-4732 for FOX.

They can't be bothered answering calls from viewers.

In a way I think your right, the further the MSM goes over the line of sanity, the better it is for Cheney. I knew a few people who voted for Bush because they thought he was a good man and the media was really unfair with him.

I hope I'm proven wrong, but I am pessimistic about stuff involving old people. My grandmother died from a simple infection at 76. Even if he doesn't die in the next 20 hours, he'll probably die in the next 20 days or weeks. Again, hope I am wrong.

Well, maybe when we get months on end of coverage and a multimillion dollar government investigation, throwing that kind of mock equivalence into the ring might have some validity. But we ain't anywhere near that yet.

onyx, I had responded to a comment about how soon Linda Vester would return to Dayside... I don't think the doctor is on LOA -- though for the sake of her patients....

maybe she is a friend of Dr and Mrs. Dr. Dean; isn't Vermont right next door?
