Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

This incident took place a few years ago and I just realized this is what a death panel does.  I was sitting in the waiting room of the Dermatologists office while my husband  had Mohs surgery on some skin cancer on this head, and in walks with great difficulty a fellow and sits down with a heavy sigh.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

He was in the dermatologist's office because the anti-rejection drugs he took after his lung transplant were giving him skin cancer.

The doctors in Georgia decided his lung problems were due to many years of cutting his grass, especially a back portion of his property where Canada goose congregated.  Apparently, the dessicated feces were atomized in the air and his inhaling this over many years was responsible for his medical problems.  As he is a retiree over age 70 they refused his request for a lung transplant and suggested he apply to Ohio where his problem originated.

Ohio, not only granted his request but put him at the top of the list.  The couple moved back to Ohio and continue to live here.  The anti-rejection drugs he needs attack his skin and are now starting to attack his joints.  But he continues to live the best life he can and enjoys the company of his wife and family.  But he experienced the "Death Panel" and lost in Georgia.  Fortunately, Ohio rescued him.
