    Infection from hip surgery resulting in more surgery, the new hip being removed, high doses of IV antibiotics, time in nursing home recovering. The only thing different is they thought they had him cured and let him go home. A few weeks later, he had pneumonia and was back in the hospital. A week after that, he was dead. Over all, he probably spent 3 months in the hospital and one month in the nursing home. At least a month of his hospital time was in ICU and isolation.

    History will not forgive us if we do not try and convict the neocoms for their crimes, every last one of them...
