Congressman: Rep. John Murtha large intestine was damaged during gallbladder surgery

It’s a bit shocking to hear that Rep. John Murtha died due to complications with the gallbladder surgery, as I read just the headline and not the details, I am little dumb struck to hear it as my dad has went through the same surgery. As people say sometimes “ignorance is bliss”, when the doctor told my family and I about the  complications that can happen and how many percentage is the successful rate of surgery, I didn’t seem to register it all, or it could be that i didn’t wanted to register the bad and only want to hope for the best.

 

To give a little background on my dad’s health, he has dialysis every other day due to his almost non working kidney’s and blood pressure and other symptoms.

A day before the surgery dad was having very fluctuating high  fever which doctors diagnosed as an issue with the gallbladder, and within some hours of diagnosis we were asked about to make the decision about the surgery next day has the medicine he has taken needs to flush out from his body before the surgery.

My dad has gone through lot of surgeries due to his complications in the kidney, but saying yes to the surgery was in a way no choice answer, we were told that he has to have it removed or he will have same symptoms or worst more complications.

As my family agreed and said yes, it was a bit unreal, the uncertainty and at the same time reality of saying yes at the situation. The silent silence on the family that was present in the hospital room was so unbearably noticeable as well as an uneasiness noticed by the another patient who as also in the room just a curtain away. I can totally understand the patients view who is disturbed by all the commotion and the chatter, and i guess there is no simple or right way when such a situation happens.

 

The next day came with more uneasiness and as dad went in for the surgery it was a bit unreal as much as I was scared I was truly felt as if nothing wrong will happen and everything will be perfect and normal, it’s a bit terrifying now when I hear about the Rep. John Murtha’s death, as for as my dad’s surgery it went without and an issue and his recovery was faster than we anticipated it to be.

 

I wish Murtha’s family patience and peace.

Mobile Screenshot Crime

Why-O-Why am I not able to take a screenshot on Phones? I had the same issue on Windows phone and now I feel the same with Google Nexus. Why can't we have a simple option next to flash light for screenshot or some other combination that will not open up the volume option or the power off or restart option.

There must me a better way to take a screenshot. No, not through some third party app but rather a build in option. Who would have thought that with all the camera and video features build into the phones, we would actually be struggling with taking a screenshot?
I don't know if it's just me but I can't seem to have my thumb or fingers in sync to the mini-mils second. I end-up almost always on volume popup, or if I try my luck to the other dark side; the power off popup; it should be a crime to not be able to take a darn screenshot, or allow some of us to choose different key combination to take a screenshot.

Update:
It seems the culprit is the phone case; so much f…

Microsoft Band and Windows Phone 8 Support

Will Microsoft Band be supported on Windows Phone 8? Without the 8.1 update?
I have been searching for answers since the Band was announced, but so far can't find any notes regarding my old phone.
I even have Windows Phone 7 but it seems that will be a no no from Microsoft.
If you have something to share please post it below.

Google Mail Hangout Message Upon Delete Action

Don't know if I get annoyed this much as the Google's Mail Hangout Message, when I select to delete number or messages.

"Because some are part of a Hangout, they have been removed from your Mail mailbox, but will still show up in other Hangouts apps and chat windows."

The message takes over the entire tool bar, and does not allow me to repeat the actions, it does not goes away until way late and would have appreciated but not allowed is a option to close. If I want to delete more items on the same page than i have to refresh the window to repeat the task.

Wish the future update can allow me to close this message.
