Re: “Local women differ on VP choice

I know it is not politically correct to interject age, but this is about HEALTH, especially with Silly Sarah, 45th President and Commander-In-Chief of the United States, in waiting, around the corner, just one heart attack or melanoma away, ready to go on day one. McCain is 72 and a medical mess. He will be 80 if he serves 2 terms, and incumbents never step down. The records document the health of Sen. McCain at the Mayo Clinic show: Cancer (melanomas on his left face, his left arm and his nose); dizziness that was diagnosed as vertigo; blood in the urine, caused by an enlarge prostate and bladder/kidney stones; high cholesterol; chronic pain in his shoulder, hand and knee joints diagnosed as degenerative arthritis; evidence of polyps and diverticulosis in the colon, and some other minor medical ailments along the way. The cancer diagnosis has surfaced 4 times, 4 operations and will likely reoccur.. Has pain in his shoulders and knee, and takes sedatives that may cause disorientation. Has high-frequency hearing loss in both ears, sporadic memory loss, edema( swelling) and blood in the urine. Thyroid palpable node discovered and being watched. Smoked 2 packs of cigarettes a DAY for 25 years before stopping in 1980. Has psychological, temper and mood swings due to military and prolonged imprisonment and isolation under stressful conditions that have left lasting psychological impact and undersurface rage, revenge phantasies and acting out. One medical opinion: I am a registered Republican. As a dermatologist with over 20 years of experience, I would have to believe that there is a very significant probability that McCain will die of his melanoma, probably within the next few years. As I understand it, his first episode was in 1992, and he has had a total of 4 melanomas, one of which was deep enough to require a lymph node dissection. My experience has been that patients whose immune system clearly does not fight off melanoma (I've never had any patient who had more than 2 once we began observing them closely with consistent skin checks, as I know McCain gets), and eventually die of their melanoma, especially when it has been on the head or neck. Everything may seem to be fine for 5-10 years, then all of a sudden all the micrometastases reach critical mass, and there are lesions in the brain, bone and lungs - and the person is dead within three months. - Laura E. Skellchock, MD Wait until he is 80 in 2nd term and President Palin takes over.
