On October 6th I wrote in this journal:-|
I note that Channel 7 "Medical Emergency" on Wednesday ran a episode concerning a person with an enlarged aorta - however at over 8 cm this was "well over the limit" and extremely dangerous. The surgeon noted that he normally deals with people with aortas of 5.5 to 6 cm (mine is 4.8 -> 4.9). Next Wednesday they will showing the surgical procedure. I'll assume the person survives the op. I note that Kevin Rudd has had a similar operation and appears quite healthy (sigh). My next ultrasound is less than two weeks away.
I watched this Wednesday's screening of the documentary "Medical Emergency" and noted what's involved in the operation. The person concerned did survive and appeared healthier than I feel right now. My ultrasound is this Wednesday 17th. October
I sent a few items to Channel 7 for them to consider in their deliberations on various matters including a copy of my letter to the Hon. The Federal Attorney General (March 2007).
It would appear that John Howard may call an election this Sunday. It doesn't look good for the Howard government as the opinion polls are showing a marked and persistent swing to Kevin Rudd (ALP) who is regarded as the preferred Prime Minister.
