OOPS. OH SO SORRY DOC TO PATIENT AFTER REMOVING A VERY PERSONAL PART. BY MISTAKE.

I am not supposed to be here doing this at this time.  Saw this story and it just begged to be posted. OUCH!

This trip is turning into a very stressful nightmare and we haven’t gone anywhere yet.  That volcano is spewing again, our flight has not been canceled as yet but, that is because the airline(s) are waiting to the very last possible minute before announcing fly or no fly.
So here we are, tickets paid for, made arrangements to store puter at a friend’s house, there will be NO electronic check in or eBoarding Pass. Which is going to mean a hassle at the check in with a zillion other ppl.  I suggested that we put the travel off for a week but we are not allowed to do that. Well, sure we can but we’d lose all the money paid.  Then there’s the hotel in LA that’s booked.  Then it gets worse because the car and driver we use for trips like this, is due to pick us up at 7am tomorrow morning.  If we get there and then the flight is canceled while we’re there, we’ll have to find a ride back here. But if it is cancelled we can then
refuse to fly at another date. If all that happens, I’ll give some VERY serious thought to a ship sailing to an American port and fly to CA from there.
In fact, if we do get off the ground tomorrow as sched., I’m seriously giving even more thought to NOT using the return ticket. Big deal.  I’ll try and find a boat coming back to England. And the more I think about that, the more appeal it has.
Gee, I’m old enough to remember when flying was fun and the stews all looked glamorous.  Ancient history.
Should know something by 5 or 6 pm England time. Frankly, I hope the top blows off that damn thing and I can relax for another week while looking for ships.
On the other hand this story reminds of the line, “So you think you have troubles.”

Surgeon cut off testicle ‘by mistake’

A patient lost a testicle during an operation because the surgeon cut it off by mistake, a General Medical Council (GMC) hearing has been told.
Dr Sulieman Al Hourani was only supposed to cut out a cyst, but removed the whole right testicle instead.

Dr Al Hourani was a locum surgeon at Fairfield General Hospital in Bury, Greater Manchester, at the time of the surgery in September 2007.
He is accused of misconduct and also of stealing medication.

It is alleged the doctor, who is now practising in Jordan and was not present at the hearing, also injected himself with a drug meant for a patient.
Sarah Prichard, counsel for the GMC, said the mistake was made as a nurse helping the surgeon turned her back to get a stitch.

When she turned around the testicle had been removed.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
