GOOD AND BAD NEWS

The good news is while going over my final blood work before surgery, both doctors said that my liver enzymes were so good they thought they brought up the wrong patient records.  They said they are what you would expect to see in a man in his 20's.  My blood sugar once approaching 120, is now twice under 100, with the last one being 98.

About 13 months ago when I saw the bariatric surgeon and decided against the surgery and to just continue with the post bariatric surgery diet, he explained to me to continue doing what I am doing, and in time my liver would reduce itself to half its then current size.  Well my liver is a lot smaller, and the liver enzymes are amazing.

THE BAD NEWS, AND WHY NO VETERAN SHOULD EVEN CONSIDER VOTING FOR CONGRESSMAN VELA

Vela will go to his grave defending the VA in Harlingen.  Well I got to the VA early (8 .a.m.) because the clerks messed up the insurance and I needed to direct them in how to fix it for the surgery.  That took an hour.  I then proceeded to do a walk in EKG needed by the surgeon.  The VA has no scheduled EKGs.  It is walk in only.

I had already had my primary care doctor stop the EKG three times, and in fact order the leads removed once to stop it.  He is no longer my primary care doctor.  I am on my 6th doctor this year.  This nut job based on me interviewing people  and one veteran in the primary care building and specialty care building believes as a federal employee he can deny medical care based on his fake  radicalized Christian values.  He is short on his employment with the VA.  

On my fourth attempt at the EKG even though he was no longer my doctor he ordered it stopped.  Well let's say all hell broke loose.  The head administrator over medical, and nursing had to stand with me during the EKG to insure it went forward.  Then everyone knowing what I did which will lead to my former primary care doctor's discharge refused to see me to read the EKG and clear me.  Well at 2:30 p.m I was assigned to a doctor in training.  His supervisor was forced to review his work.

This is when we went over most of my labs.

When I got home I realized a urine culture showed a rare form of pneumonia along with a recommendation for the preferred antibiotic.  This form of pneumonia is very rare, and has a high death rate.  It can exist in the lungs, blood, bladder and a host of other parts of the body.  The protocol is to do advanced testing to determine where it is in the body.

So I call and the chief medical officer is forced to review the findings and this is what I am told.

The VA Harlingen ignores all cultures done at their lab because of a problem with massive cross contamination.  So if they know this, why is the culture not sent to an outside lab?  So if a urine culture shows you have pneumonia the VA will just ignore it and do nothing, because their lab has a major cross contamination problem.  

IT IS WELL PAST TIME TO SHUT DOWN THE VA HARLINGEN AND JUST PUT ALL VETERANS WITH PRIVATE DOCTORS.

ALSO ALL OF THE COMPLAINTS AND EVIDENCE IN THE WORLD GIVEN TO CONGRESSMAN VELA WILL GET YOU NO WHERE.  HE WILL DEFEND THE VA HARLINGEN TO HIS  DEFEAT.
