Nobody Said Life Was Fair

Current mood: counting my blessings

Category: News and Politics

A first responder after 9/11 was interviewed yesterday on public radio about his medical woes. He'd had a foot amputated and had already undergone over a dozen operations, with more to follow. He suffered from chronic respiratory problems. He also had what he called "post-traumatic".

And as if that weren't bad enough, he was recently diagnosed with a "high anal hernia" which required surgery. In the middle of the operation, he "exasperated" on the operating table and almost died.


The poor guy can't catch a break. If I were in his shoes (shoe?) I'd exasperate, too.
