    An ophthamologist (I guess he was an ophthamologist) encouraged my 84-year-old mother-in-law to have blepharoplasty on her drooping eyelids. Which might have been okay, except she had pulmonary hypertension and chd. She passed away before he could schedule her!

    My God! Our doctors put in PPM/AICDs ALL the time in people who are over 80 and have dementia or other chronic to terminal illnesses, all with the patients' families consent! "You can't put a price on even another day of life." Yeah, I sure as hell can when it's my tax dollar paying for it! And YOUR tax dollars too.

    And if you're one of the folks complaining about this practice in this forum, then think before you pull that lever in November!
