u/oldreprobate May 26 '22

Yes and I wish my dog's chip had a transponder but that would require a battery so he has to be scanned directly if lost and then found. These chip folks are the most stupid of all. The logistics involved in tracking would require that every vaccinator be in on it. And the technology doesn't exist so ....

216

u/fruitytootiebootie May 26 '22

Yeah these people only use their brains for fear and anger. If such a thing existed it would make more sense to use it for medical or military uses ($) instead of tracking people who overshare. That and besides needing to be way bigger and somehow stay charged they'd get really hot and burn you from the inside.

u/malek_adema May 26 '22

That’s the thing I always don’t get. 2 things: - where should the chip get his power from? Did they ever turn on the gps in their phone? It drains you battery which is relatively huge. So why should this work - what basically you said. If we would have the technology, wouldn’t be every important person be chipped so it is basically not possible to kidnap them? Or you could chip your kids and pets to never lose them. If this technology would exist, wouldn’t it already be used for the masses?

It really is. That's why a lot of vets will only do them under anesthesia during the spay/neuter. My vet argued about doing the microchip for my youngest dog before then, but this guy is an escape artist who can also remove all his tags, so we really didn't have a choice.

Right like I use a 25G to inject and no fucking way would that fit. If I can put a needle in your arm and administer a vaccine and then you say "are you positive you gave me a shot?" because it was so small of a needle that it didn't even hurt, then there's no way it's big enough to implant a microchip.

"I didn't get vaccinated for all the problems I feel go along with them"

Problems with the SARS CoV-2 vaccines have been tracked and assessed by data, not feelings, and the mRNA vaccines, in particular, are amazingly safe.

u/sojayn Take Some Prayercillin May 26 '22 Wholesome

The vaccines and the science around them are just amazing fullstop. Part of my sadness is that these people aren’t excited and awed and joyous about how cool it all is! These are also feelings we can choose about science and human endeavour.

299

u/GnarlyNarwhalNoms May 27 '22

Right? It's a legitimate miracle.

Plagues have been one of the most feared and deadly natural disasters since the beginning of human history, so much so that whole cults sprang up around them, declaring them to be the wrath of God.

And then vaccines were invented, but they often took so long to create and manufacture, and during past pandemics, uncounted numbers died waiting for them.

And now we're at the point where they can sequence the DNA of a deadly new virus and have a prototype vaccine ready literally within a matter of days. And we're fortunate in developed nations to have the technology and infrastructure (and money) to manufacture and distribute them en masse in record time.

And they look at this miraculous, fast, free salvation from one of humanity's oldest enemies, this wondrous thing that humans throughout history would have killed for and which is still unavailable to many around the world, and not only do they turn up their noses and spin the Russian roulette cylinder, they spread idiotic lies about it to boot.

It's freaking beyond comprehension.

u/korben2600 May 27 '22 Bravo! This

I'd argue it's largely a symptom of the state-level defunding of American public school districts that began in the 1980s, particularly in red states. It's already tough to get a decent public school education in blue cities. Imagine how hard it is to find qualified teachers in rural areas of red states.

That wouldn't explain the lack of reasoning skills for the boomers that end up on HCA though. For that, it's probably again a socioeconomic factor.

I did a little googling, and it looks like ecmo alone costs about $5k/day on top of the $3-5k/day for the "normal" cost of being in an icu. Multiply that by 120 days and it appears this woman racked up over $1M in medical bills, even if you don't include all the other treatment she received.

Such a waste. You'd think the insurance companies cap this shit instead of meds and treatment of people that can actually be helped. Lungs that far gone, ineligible for an organ transplant and unable to be weaned off a machine... That's a trifecta of consequences to your own actions if I've ever seen one.

Such a shame there's no do-over making better decisions, in the end this all boils down to false information being spread and people being unable to think for themselves (lack of education, upbringing, genetics etc). It's horrible.

You ever wonder why Donald Trump illegally withheld defensive weapons from Ukraine?

The weapons that are turning Russian tanks into mushroom clouds?

The weapons that are making Putin’s war more difficult?

It should be obvious to everyone.

A 2022 President Trump would be saying that Vladimir Putin’s invasion was:

“Completely justified…I’m hearing that Ukrainians are very bad. Not to be trusted..Some of them are the worst.

Maybe not all of them, but Ukraine does not have the best people. Believe me..

The other day a very strong man.came up to me… Real tough guy. I don’t think he ever cried. Even when he was a little baby… He saluted and said to me ‘SIR! THE UKRAINIAN PEOPLE ARE VERY BAD, SIR!!!’

Then he would deploy our military to aid Putin.

There hadn't been a shooting in my town since the mid 90s, before I was even born, never one at my school, but I always wondered and worried and tried to have a game plan.

The typical, "I sent you two boats and a helicopter." Jesus, it's maddening. It's like watching a car crash in slow-motion. They really are that stupid. Boyfriend, aunt, etc. I remember this one had the two kids that didn't live with her and her boyfriend. The one that wanted to start a gofundme. Not sure how much mom paid towards their care since they didn't live with her. Prob just a another grift on the boyfriend's part. Help set him up for his next phase of life (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). Jesus, 120 + days on ECMO. I can't even imagine the horror that would be. If only they had been warned......

I'm sorry, I know she's young but... seems her daughter is following her footsteps "I wish you could feel my pain so you'd understand" who wishes the pain of losing a loved one on others? Seems she wasn't a very good lady either, her kids lived with relatives so she didn't have custody, and the daughter makes a point to say "I don't care what kind of person you thought my mother was" says to me lots if people thought she was a bitch or a bad person. Oh well. And will you look at that, another bf trying to capitalize off his gfs death using her kids as a proxy "donate 200,000 to kids my girlfriend who's dying doesn't even raise.

Hey, question for people registered as organ donors. Can you forbid certain people from getting the organs that you donate? Cus if I die, and my organs can be used, I don't want them to be given to someone who just threw theirs in the garbage. I'd rather it go to someone who had cancer or something else of the like.

136

u/QuarantineTitans May 26 '22

The committee that handles organ donation is very selective with recipients to ensure each organ yields the greatest benefit. They can prioritize one patient over another for whatever reason they want, and the overwhelming consensus is they prefer their patients to be up to date on vaccination history (including COVID-19).

You'll notice on Slide 14 her brother details every reason why she wasn't getting a lung transplant...except vaccination. Probably didn't want to implicate that she killed herself with her catastrophically misguided paranoia, or make her enabling family members feel complicit in her slow painful death. We already have documented evidence that hospitals will remove patients from organ wait lists explicitly because they refused vaccination.

"Transplant medicine has always been a strong promoter of vaccination," says Silas Prescod Norman, MD, a clinical associate professor of nephrology and internal medicine at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is a kidney specialist, or nephrologist, who works in the university's transplant clinic.

Requiring the COVID vaccine is in line with requirements to get numerous other vaccines, he says.

"Promoting the COVID vaccine among our transplant candidates and recipients is just an extension of our usual practice."

"In transplantation, first and foremost is patient safety," Norman says. "And we know that solid organ transplant patients are at substantially higher risk of contracting COVID than non-transplant patients."

After the transplant, they are placed on immunosuppressant drugs, also called anti-rejection drugs, that weaken the immune system while also decreasing the body's ability to reject the new organ.

"We know now, because there is good data about the vaccine to show that people who are on transplant medications are less likely to make detectable antibodies after vaccination," says Norman, who’s also a medical adviser for the American Kidney Fund, a nonprofit that provides kidney health information and financial assistance for dialysis.

And this is not a surprise due to the immunosuppressive effects, he says.

"So it only makes sense to get people vaccinated before transplantation," Norman says.

Refusal to properly prepare or lack of agreement to take all the steps to ensure a successful recover aside…I find it amazing all these folks that see lung transplants as almost a reset for them. Lung transplants are not only notoriously hard to recover from, but the organs don’t last long. It’s not like this 42-year-old woman would’ve made it to old ages with those lungs.

But I’m sure that family was like they’re denying her a full recovery and 42 more years of life because she won’t vaccinate! Smh

We pretty much never had any local cases or community transmission before this spring, so we're getting hit hard. My last booster was five months ago and I'm not eligible for a 4th yet (finish vaccinating those kids first) so I'm being careful but I still have to work in a school, so...

Saying that she was on too many pain meds, which the hospital started her on. I’m sorry, did you want your sister to suffer even more? Saying they pushed her “too hard and too fast”. No, bitch.

No matter how many versions of this story I see, it’s still fucking unbelievable.

I developed a non-COVID-related illness over the winter, and I’ve had two surgeries and five ER visits since January. It’s been hellish, but it’s obviously got NOTHING on what these freedumb fighters are going through. I’m writing this from the hospital right now, and it sucks. I can’t eat. I’m in pain. I can’t wash my hair. I have to have someone help me pee. And again, none of this has anything on ending up on a lung-transplant list because of my own stupid, utterly preventable choices.

I don’t say this to get people to feel sorry for me. I’m lucky; I’m going to recover. But Chippette and the others who think like her are going to die, and all because they were certain they were smarter than the medical professionals who recently saved my life.

I know this doesn’t need saying. I know it’s been said a thousand times. But as I lie here wishing I could be home with my cat and have a proper hair wash, it continues to baffle me, and it always will baffle me, and god, it just pisses me off so much.

I have covid right now. I would say it’s really rough, but it’s not — the reason is because I was double vaccinated and boosted. A slight cough, some sniffles, a sore throat, a minor headache… totally bearable for me. I expect a full and rapid recovery in the next few days. Without the vaccine, I would be getting my ass kicked right now. It’s monumentally stupid to not get it, but at this stage, if someone hasn’t gotten the vaccine yet, they probably never will. One important thing to consider: cases like mine aren’t going to be reported to the CDC, so the daily cases metric is severely under reported, causing people to underestimate the risk and spread. More take home tests pretty much guarantee it now.

It pumps the blood out of your body, oxygenates it, and pumps it back in again. It helps take some stress off the lungs and in some cases gives them time to heal, but they're really not designed for extended use.

Pre-covid they were mostly used during organ transplants when the doctors have to stop the heart, or for people who were waiting for lung transplants.

https://khn.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2019/05/ecmo_GettyImages-998260308.jpg

The tube on the right with the blue tape goes into the patient's neck and sucks out the deoxygenated blood, runs it through the machine to add oxygen (along with stuff like heparin to prevent clotting), and then pumps it back into the body via that tube with red tape.

I'm not sure if they've really figured out the long term side effects yet because they were never designed to be used for 3+ months, but even after a few days it can lead to brain damage, clotting issues, weakening of the heart muscles, and loss of extremities due to a lack of proper circulation in your fingers and toes.
