⚠️⚠️We need your attention to one of the child campaigns organized by @87films!

As many families live together in peace with their families and friends today, families in Afghanistan are praying day and night not to lose their children due to malnutrition. (1/3) Image
The number of malnourished children is rapidly increasing, and children are the primary victims of this unprecedented crisis.

1/🧵 A personal story of misjudgment as a physician.
 
Years ago, when I was a young doctor, I had a patient in the ICU on a ventilator who was doing so poorly, day after day, that I was certain he was going to die.

I confidently told the family he was going to die.
2/ The family members all gathered and were extremely distraught. They listened and trusted me.
 
But I was wrong.

#PalliativeCare #EndofLife
3/ For many years to come, I received Christmas cards from this man.

It was extremely humbling.
 
Until I learned, this happened many other times in my life as an ICU doctor.

Sometimes I was off by just 2 weeks, sometimes 2 months, and other times by 2 years.

I hope someday, If God is willing, I can show to my descendant(s) my social media accounts, Twitter, or Instagram, whether he/she (they) will be my child out of my womb or will be bornt from my "heart", or whether they will be my "spiritual children".
I hope this account will become one of God's tools to bless their lives. Well, if they somehow have an interest or some curiosity to see it. I won't push them. But when they do, I pray they will be blessed by it.

I love how folk (mostly White) on the left want whole ass gigantic mountains, the heavens & the 🌍 to be moved to expedite the prosecution of Trump’s cabal but when we asked y’all to police your White peeps away from voting for him in the 1st place, y’all couldn’t be bothered. 😒
We’ve literally been warning y’all that this shit was a Klan kleptocracy disaster just waiting to happen for not just years or decades, but CENTURIES. Y’all’s sense of urgency & justice is still hampered by your myopic privilege so you fail to realize that we’re already TOO LATE.
Millions are dead from COVID worldwide and thousands are dying every damn day in this Russia/Ukraine war (that was explicitly promised & ordained as a consequence of Trump in the WH), so y’all still need to disabuse yourselves of the notion that damage control is a glamorous job.

Spent more time in the garden today. Insect populations are booming! A bit of sunshine really helps to lift the spirits.
#Hoverfly Image
Had a run of 3 good days, but just tried doing *some* of the things my lungs had allowed me to do over the weekend & over-did it by fixing the ball-cock in the toilet cistern! Lowered my guard; lungs are tight again (first time in 10 days) & I'm lightheaded. #PulmonaryEmbolism

1/🧵🎥 “It’s a very bad disease. It can be overcome.”
 
My #COVID patient tearfully speaks of his BIG DECISION on the ventilator.

This soldier & leukemia survivor made it through 3 weeks on a ventilator. How?
 
Video shown w his permission “to help others find hope, Doc.”
#Hope
2/ This immunocompromised man was in massive viral septic shock from COVID.

Huge doses of vasopressors.

Gargantuan levels of O2 & vent pressure to save his life.

Lungs, Kidneys, Heart and Brain all failed.
3/ His wife was there with him daily.

We put up pictures of his kids and pets.

We talked to him about the things he loved every day (even when sedated and seemingly unable to hear us).

Somewhere in all of that, he made a silent decision…

1/🧵 Let’s talk Long COVID:

I’m grouping several important & interesting articles about the reality of #LongCOVID.

By studying brain fluid, viral persistence & MRIs, we’re building our understanding of the “how” & “why” of this devastating malady.

A train is coming, read on…
2/ Cerebrospinal Fluid Offers Clues to #BrainFog

Most pts w new “thinking problems” after mild #COVID had abnormalities in fluid from lumbar punctures (image); controls did not.

Delayed #LongCOVID was common in younger people who thought they were safe.

3/ Believing those with #LongCOVID complaints is our 1st basic show of support!

“If people tell us they have new thinking & memory issues, I think we should believe them rather than require that they meet certain severity criteria.”

1/🧵 Are you happy?

My brother w #DownSyndrome is teaching me tons of life lessons.

In medicine & in life, I make big decisions based on guesstimates of other’s Quality of Life #QOL.

I often GET IT WRONG!
 
What do adults w #disability teach me about TRUTH?

Can I learn? Image
2/🎥 How do we “calculate” someone’s #QOL?
 
#Confession: I get it all wrong when I impose MY judgment onto THEIR life.
 
Greg, my 57 y/o brother-in-law with Down Syndrome, has a better QOL than I do.

Why?

Digest this…read on…
 
#DownSyndromeLove
3/ My working definition of QOL is “the ability to give & receive love.”

REREAD THAT👆

Greg understands the Law of the Gift: Treasures GROW when we give them away.

It’s the opposite of hoarding.

Yet, giving ourselves to others can be SCARY. Greg ponders deeply these emotions. Image

“What do you need for a trauma-informed school?” That was the title of my talk today, t very first live since lockdown!!, w/ 35 staff at @MillofMainsPS in Dundee. Here’s a THREAD on t range of trauma-attentive things they are ALREADY doing to support their childrn.
2. First, what does a GROUP of gathered staff look like?? THIS!! In their brand new, never-before-used Community Hall! #Honoured We came up with ideas for all sorts of community events, to ripple out the insights of today to parents & others, didnt we @geordiepeaches ? 😀
3. New teacher: “I’ve been using cards I made up to let the kids choose how to regulate. They only took me a few minutes to make. They’ve saved me hours of time. It’s like a way for them to tell me what they need even in midst of big emotions.”
Me: “Do you have them handy?”

The weather is 23 F (-5 C); it snows heavily in Kabul. Everywhere is covered with snow. As beautiful as Kabul appears today, thousands of untold stories reside in each corner of this city. (1/4)
It is a joyous day of playing in the snow for some kids. On the other side, there are kids with cold hands, old torn clothes, no shoes, no gloves, begging for a helping hand to be able to survive this cold, harsh winter. (2/4)
We at Aseel are working non-stop every day to bring back the liveliness of this city, make the gloomy and snowy days brighter, and support as many Afghans as possible to bring joy to each family. However, we can only do this with your help. 💙 (3/4)

1/ #BellLetsTalk Time for another 🌶🧵. Today, this personally cuts deep. 6 weeks of unpaid leave from nursing. Colleagues short-staffed and struggling through outbreaks in fully vaxxed settings, yet I sit at home robbed of my identity. My career. Over one “choice.” BNRN.
2/ #BellLetsTalk The sudden white-knight virtue signalling of those in power that have locked down their citizens and restricted them for two years right now is nauseating. Ex: here’s Doug Ford talking about mental health after closing gyms for a YEAR. All in this together?
3/ #BellLetsTalk about what losing a career or business does to your mental health. Let’s talk about how our covid tunnel vision has led to trickle-down mental damages that will be felt for YEARS to come. Let’s look at some of the academic evidence. 800,000 suicides every year.

Hope/आशा की किरण...

1950 के दशक में हावर्ड यूनिवर्सिटी के विख्यात साइंटिस्ट "कर्ट रिचट्टर" ने चूहों पर एक अजीबोगरीब शोध किया था।

कर्ट ने एक जार को पानी से भर दिया और उसमें एक जीवित चूहे को डाल दिया।

पानी से भरे जार में गिरते ही चूहा हड़बड़ाने लगा

Read👇
औऱ जार से बाहर निकलने के लिए लगातार ज़ोर लगाने लगा।

👉चंद मिनट फड़फड़ाने के पश्चात चूहे ने जार से बाहर निकलने का अपना प्रयास छोड़ दिया और वह उस जार में डूबकर मर गया।

☝️कर्ट ने फ़िर अपने शोध में थोड़ा सा बदलाव किया।

☝️उन्होंने एक दूसरे चूहे को पानी से भरे जार में पुनः डाला।
चूहा जार से बाहर आने के लिये ज़ोर लगाने लगा।

☝️जिस समय चूहे ने ज़ोर लगाना बन्द कर दिया और वह डूबने को था...
☝️ठीक उसी समय कर्ड ने उस चूहे को मौत के मुंह से बाहर निकाल लिया।

☝️कर्ड ने चूहे को उसी क्षण जार से बाहर निकाल लिया,जब वह डूबने की कगार पर था।

☝️चूहे को बाहर निकालकर

Is #Russia’s sentiment that they want to know what #Ukraine really thinks, and if Ukraine can, “stand on their own,” in the international community, with security even, and the idea is how could you if you cannot stand up to our troops, though,

#Medium #Mediumship, was reading an old #Tufts@TuftsDaily⁩ article from 2008 interviewing ⁦@jessicaalba⁩ about her film #TheEye, watched the trailer:
you do see how see people died, though, if contacted by the deceased, they share their personality, images of what is relevant, what they think is, which can be difficult; I take #antidepressants, and, am #healing myself from illness, some #trauma, too, and, was seeing more,

#Vaccines are clearly NOT the promised "way out".
They haven't just moved those goal posts around the field - but to different fields all together!

#Lockdowns, shutdowns, school closures & other restrictions are NOT the way out.

#Masks are clearly NOT the way out.

1/... Image
What IS our "way out" is for @fordnation , @celliottability & @JustinTrudeau to show:

1) HUMILITY - to admit that they have made mistakes...not just at the beginning, but each step of the way...from repeated #Lockdowns , #shortcutvaccines , #VaccineMandates ,...

2/...
... #VaccinePassports , #MaskMandates , capacity limits, plexiglass barriers, etc. - NONE of which has the scientific merit to meet the threshold of a "reasonable limits" on the freedoms of those in #Ontario & #Canada - as they can NOT be "demonstrably justified".

1/🧵 You’re dying in a hospital bed, and we grant you “THREE WISHES.” What would they be?

My dying patient is stunningly beautiful INSIDE & out. I asked what 3 wishes she had?

This video of the Birthday 🎂 party we had for her son is her BONUS Wish!

Read on for her share ❤️
Her Wish #1: Pizza, large w extra cheese. It’s been 3 years since she tasted SALT.

(again, all pics shown w their perm)
2/ Wish #2:

Expanded FAMILY visitation, which mean she enjoyed the ‘Za with all her children!

She said, “Dr. Wes, Dr. Koenig & @mad_ruk this is Priceless to me 🎁.”

Families are not a luxury. They are integral to healing (& healing can occur w/out cure).
