Skip to comments.Whittington Back in ICU (FNC Reporting Minor Heart Attack)
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.
putting her back on was a smack in the face to the viewers
Press 7 -- OK.
The DUmmies thought this old guy was a Democrat mortician. Turns out we got ourselves a Democrat twerp of a nurse.
The DUmmies have got to be salivating over this mouthbreathing idiot.
My God...... how can she say that?
Due to the HIGH VOL of calls.. they could not take my call.
She's acting like the doctors are trying to cover up something. She's a complete idiot.
Well it's good for the GOP, no one takes Sherrod Brown seriously. He's a hair to the right of Dennis Kucinich.
She's a family practice physician... not a Cardiologist! Why are they talking to a GP instead of a heart specialist?
Exactly. The longer one stays in a hospital, the less likely it is that one will walk out of there. And it often has nothing to do with the reason one went into the hospital in the first place.
"So a "peppering" (look up the definition) of bird shot can enter thru the mulitple laters of cloth, then skin, then muscle, to lodge against the heart.
Indeed it can. At 30 yards, it's not a problem even for #7 1/2 shot to penetrate clothing and the thin skin between human ribs. From reports, it was #7 1/2 shot.
"Peppering" is probably not the right word, really. Any shotgun wound at 30 yards is potentially very serious, especially to the face and neck. It can blind, pierce the carotid artery or jugular vein. A body shot, particularly on the side, can easily have pellets penetrate the chest cavity if it hits between ribs.
It's not a joke to be hit with even small-sized shot.
That said, this was still an accident. It was an avoidable accident, to be sure, but it was an accident. But, the dangers of being struck by shotgun pellets at 30 yards are not to be dismissed. Most often, the person hit will be OK, but not always.
When John Glenn was going into space, Johnson pulled up in front of her house, insisting on going live on air with her; she called Glenn at NASA and he told the people down there that if she had to talk to Johnson on TV, he was going to take off his flight suit and go home.
NASA made Johnson leave -- he was FURIOUS. But he was just going to use her.
She had a HORRIBLE stutter and hardly ever speaks in public.
why are they calling a doctor from Massachusetts? FNC is in Manhattan, they have some of the best hospitals in the world here, they can't find a cardiologist at NYU or Columbia they can call? this is insane.
Where did they find this doc to begin with?
I AM LIVID!
Who is saying that CR??
Now would be a good time to bomb Iran. The press isn't paying attention.
