The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 15
What do you call it when you don't know what to call it?
Jun 2 — ‘According to TMZ, who interviewed Bonaduce, he has seen hundreds of doctors about a “mystery illness,” only to be finally diagnosed with hydrocephalus in May.
According to the National Institute of Health, hydrocephalus is “a neurological disorder caused by an abnormal buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the ventricles (cavities) deep within the brain. This excess fluid causes the ventricles to widen, putting harmful pressure on the brain’s tissues.”
Surgery to relieve the pressure is set for Monday.’
‘In April 2022, Amy Bonaduce, Danny’s wife, started noticing his speech was off and he had lost the ability to walk or balance. A stroke was ruled out by doctors.’
This reminds me of Donald Parham Jr. Remember that?
Vaccine injury Medical emergency disrupts Chargers’ game-winning play
And it amazes me still, and I’m running out of amazement, how much these types of injuries are whitewashed. Here’s what happened: Parham Jr. caught the pass and landed in the end zone. When his head tapped the ground after landing perfectly, he immediately went into the fencing posture, which is a sign of serious brain damage. As per this article, which is pretty typical, he didn’t tap his head on the ground but “slammed” it, he wasn’t in the fencing posture, but rather his arm was “frozen in a bent position,” and he was “diagnosed with a concussion.” Look, I’m not going to amateur deep-dive into the signs and symptoms of encephalitis on the football field. I’m just throwing it out there that to me, this incident clearly showed there was something SEVERELY wrong with Donald Parham Jr. before catching this game-winning touchdown, which he dropped, and the Chargers lost because of it. Vaccine: 1, Chargers: 0.
I’m at a loss. This is where we’re at, people. “It’s called syncope,” they say.
Jun 2 — ‘Investigators say Skutnik's 2012 Toyota Tundra was speeding when he crashed into a stopped 2017 Chevy Malibu. The Malibu then struck a stopped 2015 Chevy Equinox and a 2022 BMW 840i.
The driver of the Malibu, 78-year-old Patricia Brinkman, of Omaha, died at the scene.’
“Investigators said Skutnik was traveling more than 95 miles an hour when he hit Brinkman's car.”
‘This is the first time COVID-19 has been used as a defense in the Douglas County.’
So now covid causes people to pass out. Well, according to one doctor, apparently, that’s the case:
‘However, in the end, the judge sided with the defense. Shapiro said the medical testimony was crucial to the judge's ruling.
A doctor revealed syncope is a symptom of covid in 3 to 10% of cases.
"The evidence shows that this was most likely a medical event related to COVID symptoms. And so the judge believed the doctor's testimony," Shapiro said.
Shapiro said Skutnik did not know he had COVID and didn't know fainting could be symptom.’
And now this is part of our legal history.
This is all getting out of hand.
Jun 2 — A father was teaching his daughter how to ride a bike when they were both struck by a car. Then the race jokers came out of the woodwork to protest, and unlike the normal protests, this one made an interesting point:
"‘Justis said he worries race may play a role in this case, comparing Waterfield's case to a school bus crash in Accomack earlier this year where a bus driver had a medical emergency and was charged shortly afterward.’ [Emphasis added]
They charged the driver.
About the current story, though:
‘Investigators said neither speed nor alcohol played a role in the crash, but it's still unclear exactly what led up to the incident.’
Could just be texting. This story is mainly here because the mention of the case with the bus driver. Maybe we’ll find out more about what happened later. Maybe the defense will blame covid.
Jun 2 — ‘The 18-year-old man who was found unresponsive in the pool of a Little Rock community center on Thursday has died, the city said Friday.’
Not a lot of info. Drownings happen. It seems they’re happening more these days. Would be nice to get some data on the issue.
Jun 2 — ‘Just before 2 p.m. Friday, first responders received reports of a deputy down at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, said Craig Little, spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
“Units got dispatched to a deputy down under unknown circumstances,” said Little.’
Jun 2 — ‘A hiker suffered a medical emergency and died Friday near a hiking trail in Griffith Park.’
‘"Firefighters located an approximately 50-year-old male patient who appears to have been riding a bicycle when he went into severe medical distress, said [LAFD spokeswoman] Stewart. "Firefighter/Paramedics provided intensive, advanced life-saving care coordinated with the base hospital. Sadly, he was beyond medical help and was pronounced dead on scene."‘
‘Officials later determined the man may have been hiking rather than cycling when he died.’
Jun 2 — ‘Emergency crews responded to a crash and possible medical emergency on Friday.
It happened just after 12:30 p.m. at the intersection between Bridge Street and East Main Street.
According to police on the scene, one person was unconscious and appeared to be suffering from a medical event.
Motorists were advised to avoid the area.’
Jun 1 — ‘“[…] Sharon is in the ICU, surrounded by her loving family, after suffering a medical emergency. The next 24 hours will be critical, and the family is asking for all of us to surround them in prayer.”’
And that’s a wrap.
