It takes 3 months to build up blood after surgery, more or less. Surgery seldom or never "fixes" things, the hoped for outcome is a less severe malady. I really do wish the writers of this could get some minor surgery, like maybe a prostectomy and have to P in a diaper or down a tube. I fast forwarded a couple times, no way could I stomach a wholehalf hour of that. Anyway, like most of their stuff, the points needed to be made could be done in 5 to 10 minutes with a better understanding of what was needed.
The new service arrangements in small groups makes interaction less, and a lot of the group leaders are clueless. So that is just who you want to check in with.
I once heard an elder say that "so and so" in the hospital should be doing phone work, talking to everyone, because all he was doing was lying in bed. Next they will trot out the 90 year old pioneer story and wonder why someone else who died at 66 isn't still getting in the hours.
