Let’s feel sorry for Health Sec. Kitty Rhoades!

Tone deaf to the point of frustration, State Health Services Sec. Kitty Rhoades has the balls to joke about losing “vacation time” getting an elective procedure paid for by taxpayers. First, I don’t like the fact that hip replacement surgery is considered “elective,” since going without is so painful and debilitating.

But that’s our health care system. And the one in charge, Rhoades, who is about to bounce nearly 90,000 Wisconsinites off Badgercare, thought it was appropriate to intentionally whine, joke, about having it done, losing vacation time, getting all the well wishes and returning pain-free. Republican elitist royalty has its privileges I guess:

jsonline: State Health Services Secretary Kitty Rhoades is getting a leave of absence for
part of this summer, but it's not the sort that anyone would welcome. Rhoades will be having a hip replacement and then recovering … “This was an extremely difficult decision for me to make … at the urging of my family I have decided not to delay this surgery any longer … I had wanted to take a vacation this summer, but this isn’t exactly how I planned to do it … I appreciate everyone’s encouragement and well wishes and am very much looking forward to returning to the Department pain-free.”

  1. I am telling you about mesothelioma cancer. The infection reaches up to two layers of the pleura. The function of the pleura is to produce lubricating fluid that aids the normal working of the lungs. Excess fluid is absorbed in bloodstream and removed from the body to maintain balance. Due to infection in the pleura in this stage, this process is disrupted, which leads to congestion in the pleura. The increase in the level of fluid causes discomfort in the chest and problems in breathing. In many cases, patients experience persistent, dry coughing. Appropriate diagnosis of the congestion is achieved through X-ray examination. Up to this stage, Mesothelioma Cancer can be surgically treated through the Mesothelioma Brighan System.
