How Doctors Die.

It’s Not Like the Rest of Us, But It Should Be

By Ken Murray  / Nov.  30, 2011

Years ago, Charlie, a highly respected orthopedist and a mentor of mine, found a lump in his stomach. He had a surgeon explore the area, and the diagnosis was pancreatic cancer. This surgeon was one of the best in the country. He had even invented a new procedure for this exact cancer that could triple a patient’s five-year-survival odds–from 5 percent to 15 percent–albeit with a poor quality of life. Charlie was uninterested. He went home the next day, closed his practice, and never set foot in a hospital again. He focused on spending time with family and feeling as good as possible. Several months later, he died at home. He got no chemotherapy, radiation, or surgical treatment. Medicare didn’t spend much on him.

Пояснение.

По поводу колбасы и ее нового качества, возникшего из недостаточного количества.


kolbasa

Во тут некоторые стали осторожно так и робко пока  жаловаться, дескать колбаса докторская "антисанкционная" в последнее время стала говно припоминать, подобать и даже вонять. Поэтому следует со всей леворюционной твердостью заявить, - нефиг тут "соседа Гладышева" поминать всуе, намекая.

Колбасу эту ведь не жрать делают, а чтоб наоборот, в красный угол ее над лампадкой с постным маслом.
Любоваться и мантры шептать: Крымнаш, крымнашш, крымнашшш,
и мурлыкать: кррррымнашшшшшш.

Ну а для самых рассамых сообразительных - "Норму" сорокинскую, вместо методички.
