Universal Health Care Hell
Cuban Dictator, Fidel Castro, pictured here in happier times with close friends, is in very grave condition after receiving less than adequate health care.
Experts Say Castro Surgery Seems To Have Been Botched .
The article gets a little gruesome at times, but socialized medicine is replete with grisly medical mishaps. In an effort to spare Castro a colostomy, what they did was to try to establish continuity of the bowel by sewing the colon to the rectum. A Korean prosthetic colon. Three unsuccessful surgeries. Infection.
Yikes! It sounds like something out of Hillary's health care reform plan.
At least the Cuban doctors didn't sew the colon to Castro's optic nerve. Optic rectalitis would set in and Castro would develop a crappy outlook on life.
