tantas Saudades...

Friday, March 14, 2008

Today, March 14th, is my Dad's BIRTHDAY...
And it is exactly on this day that they announced
the inauguration of the NEW E.R.
at Sacré-Coeur Hospital;
the hospital where he was, last...

The hospital I felt tempted
to blame for his early demise
two years ago -
and it will be two years ago
on March the 22nd...
Dad loved that hospital though
because his son was born there
- yet me, despite seeing the light
of day for the first time there,
I always hated it
especially since 2006.

Things like that make me smile.
That they chose my father's birthday
to inaugurate a brand-spanking new
emergency ward there
-one that got made through funds
amassed during the year 2006 too-
well, I see the Hand of Providence
in things like that...

They're enough evidence, for me,
that there is a

Greater Picture...

One that we don't quite see
the whole scope of

- as of yet.




Even more striking, on this March 14th 2008, is the release of a certain VERDICT affecting someone else named JOHN and this other John's WIDOW, HEIRS, SON, ESTATE and FAMILY...

If THEY could not win their case against the hospital and incompetent (quacks) doctors - we had no chance at all to, either.

Here is the link to the story - click here.

As they delete these infuriating stories within two weeks, usually, I'll spare all the trouble though: and save a copy or summary NEXT...


Jury Clears Ritter Doctors
By Joal Ryan

John Ritter's tragic death cannot be blamed on a pair of doctors.

So a jury essentially decided Friday in rejecting a wrongful death claim made by the Ritter family.

The split, 9-3 verdict in the civil trial in Glendale, California, came after a day or so of deliberations, and weeks of testimony frequently marked by tears from Ritter's famous coworkers, friends and his widow, actress Amy Yasbeck.

"We are still convinced these doctors did something inappropriate, but the jury system worked," said Michael Plonsker, an attorney from the Ritters.

At issue in the $67 million lawsuit, brought by Yasbeck and Ritter's four children, was whether a radiologist, Dr. Matthew Lotysch, was negligent in a body scan he performed on Ritter in 2001, and whether a cardiologist, Dr. Joseph Lee, was negligent in care he provided for Ritter on the night he died in 2003.

The jury found that in the case of Lotysch, the radiologist did his duty, detecting signs of heart disease and advising Ritter to follow up with a doctor.

The Ritters had alleged the radiologist failed to detect an enlarged aorta. On the stand, Lotysch said there was nothing to detect—the scan didn't show Ritter had one.


Sue the scan machine next - is that the message this inept jury is sending, here?



O Exmo. Sr. João Jacinto Borges Pimentel would have been 74 years of age this year.
