Stayin’ alive

A kidney dialysis/transplant diary

Thought provoking

I’ve run across some interesting information on dialysis the past couple of days. In some ways, these two bits are philosophically  opposed, but they certainly are fodder for conversation. The first link will take you to You Tube. I don’t normally watch Scrubs, but I may start.

Scrubs – On death and dying

The second chilling discussion is on Bill Peckham’s Dialysis from the sharp end of the needle.
Seems the US is considering limiting dialysis a la the British health service route. Take a look at the recent posts on NICE and life quality.
They leave me feeling chilled but I must admit though as a patient they are unacceptable they do make some cold-hearted logic.

What do you think?
