    Really torn up about this...:c

    She seemed kinda senile lately, very different. It reminded me of Greg Giraldo and just before he died he had a change of personality, almost a signal like it's time.

    Wow. I'm really suprised. Most people in their 80s who code go on to live long productive lives.

    He should impregnate her, can you imagine the talent they would produce?

    At any age, for that matter.

    I had forgotten you were once an EMT, before I saw it mentioned in another thread. I don't usually forget much...maybe I'm getting like Giraldo, too.

    Younger people who are otherwise healthy or do the right thing afterwards can live pretty normal lives if they get lucky.

    What's the stats...something like 20-25 percent of codes have (long-term) positive outcomes?

    Like you, I'm afraid she's among the 75 percent...she "made" it, but not really.

    Breathing is not underrated. Nor are the dangers of any procedures needing anesthesia in those office/clinics. Don't expect those fucking docs to even know how to start compressions.

    Well there are too many variables. Age, disease, underlying conditions, down time, cause of arrest (traumatic means you're pretty much fucked). I'm dealing with my father being sick right now and trying to talk him into signing a DNR. He doesn't really get the fact that if he codes, even if they get him back, he's not going to be the way he was before. The best he'll be is really fucking sick and about to die but now with broken ribs and possibly brain damage.

    I'm sorry to read that, Scott. My father was scared to death of being in the same scenario.

    Yeah. It's hard to convince someone that you love to choose not to be resuscitated.

    Our society gets teary eyed for dying or dead celebrities,but when a dull normal dies,almost no one cares.
