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.

Email VP Cheney and give him your support! This must be a horrible time for him.

Which is hard to reconcile with the story yesterday that Frist was trying to distance himself from the President. I hate these guys.

Honestly Ohio, I think Brit was a little ticked off about all of this.

It's under the surface, but you can see it there. He does not suffer fools gladly.

They keep claiming that there are the best hospitals in NYC and Whittington should be THERE. Yet they can only get to a General Practitioner who specializes in hair removal to critique the patient's condition long distance?

>>78 year olds who aren't professional hunters shouldn't be doing this stuff.

True, but I think if 78-year-olds want to do something REALLY dangerous, they could spend a few nights in a hospital. All sorts of things can go wrong. They could miss a pellet floating around near your heart; immobilize you until you get an embolism; expose you to one of those supergerm hospital infections from bacteria that thrive on Mr. Clean; give you the wrong medication; drop you while moving you to another bed; not bother to start a course of preventive antibiotics until you have a wicked fever and the beginnings of blood poisoning. Et cetera.
Compared to that, hunting birds is a romp.

ABC News is already comparing Cheney to Aaron Burr, who deliberately shot Alexander Hamilton in a duel.

Not that I'm doubting you, but

YOU'RE KIDDING ME!?!

That's too stupid even to be worthy of ridicule.

Ironic, isn't t? The Lefties are big on the right to privacy when it comes to abortion, but not on an elderly man hit in a hunting accident.

Actually, Whittington can put a stop to it by DEMANDING his FEDERAL RIGHT TO PRIVACY regarding inpatient treatments in any hospital receiving federal funds.

To be put in ICU in the first place indicates that the wounds were somewhat more serious than being peppered.

I worked in a 16 bed ICU for about 15 years, and so feel safe in telling you that not every patient is in there because of their condition.

ICU is typically the most restricted and secure unit, barring psych units, in which a patient can be placed. We often had a patient who was political, a prisoner, or in need of protection/restricted access placed in ICU regardless of condition.

Press release.

He has talked to Whittington today; he was informed of the problem this morning and what the doctors were going to do; after he watched the PRESS CONFERENCE at the hospital, he called Whittington.

Imagine him watching those fools slam those doctors!!! I'm surprised he didn't get sick!

Take issue with FNC putting on that Dr. London who has hysterically described the patient's heart as having "part of it die."

She has not viewed his chart nor examined the patient.

She is way out of line and she's a democrat shill.

What if the heart attack was INDUCED?

1. Makes Cheney look worse
2. More PR for Corpus Christi Hospital
3. More fame for Doctors who "rescued" Whittington

Just "chumming" the water.

Now they're throwing out the fact that McClellan knew about Whittington's heart attack before WH press briefing.

It is not HIS PLACE nor this WHITE HOUSE'S place to update the press on another man's condition.

That's NOT his job -- and might well be a violation of Whittington's PRIVACY.

Because McClellan is horrible. He seems too meek and wimpy. He reminds me of Joe Lockhart during the Clinton years. Needed someone like Ari at times like these.

Or even the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.

Billings, Montana has one of the largest heart clinics in the western United States.

Why did you pullthis thread. It was different than this current one.

The thread was about the headline (Cheney's Victim suffers Heart Attack)....and the media's treatment of this issue.

Not a duplicate post. Not a vainity. Please reinstate. Thanks

at this point, I'm wondering whether the right move would be to have Cheney go before the press. its better then letting the feeding frenzy go on. we see time after time, anytime a news vacuum exists on any story, the media fills it with their own opinion (presented as fact), and we all know what that means.

If the hospital is letting Whittington accept phone calls, he must be okay.

The doom and gloom press has gotten on my last nerve. I need my TV screen to watch the Westminster Kennel Club dog show tonight, so don't dare turn it on. I'd throw something at it!!

Thanks for the info

I guess that none of these reporters ever actually read the HIPPA papers that every doctor and medical facility has you sign, before they will see you.
