I am beyond devastated and really don't want to live but i must

Folks, I have had the benevolent fortune to have been married the most wonderful woman inside and out that an ugly old cuss such as myself didn't deserve. We were married for 40 wonderful years.

Several years ago, she developed C.I.D.P. diagnosed by one considered foremost in his field of neurology and was subsequently treated with i.v.i.g. every other week where a therapist drove from about 150 miles away to administer the infusions.

I can hardly type the foregoing without tearing up but in the latter part of February, this year, she died from a heart attack. SHE WAS GIVEN AND E.K.G. several months before her passing and was found to have no issues. I had to rush her to the emergency room several times because her blood pressure dropped precipitously. She was released with no conclusion or medication!

This doctor is in Houston and I know that we are not supposed to name individual physicians and I will abide by that although, being designed to thwart lawsuits, it surely hides, by tacit consent, to allow questionable practitioners to continue without accountability on a casual basis.

The coupe de gras or the straw that broke the camel's back is that I informed him, by email, of the date and fact of my dearly beloved wife and HIS OFFICE NOR HE, EVEN HAD THE COMMON COURTESY TO OFFER CONDOLENCES OR ANY FORM OF ACKNOWLEDGEMENT EXCEPT THAT I HAD REQUESTED AN CONFIRMATION OF DELIVERY OF THE EMAIL MESSAGE. HE DID CONFIRM THAT IT HAD BEEN DELIVERED.

TO attempt to protect others, I am thinking of responding to individual replies to the above.]

This doctor is in Houston, Texas, Methodist Hospital.

May God be with you!


Joe, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear wife. How heart-breaking. I wish you peace and healing.


I am so sorry for your loss. If there is an explanation to be found to make sense of what happened I hope you find it. I also wish you peace. Take care.

A hospital in Nacogdoches, TX injured my mother severely leaving her with a severe anoxic brain injury. After going through this with my family and hearing horrible stories about hospitals and medical care in TX from the lawyer I will NEVER, EVER seek medical care in Texas. They are the worst state for medical care and they have immunity from lawsuits (if it is a state or government hospital). So the doctors can do whatever they want because there are no repercussions to their actions and they know it. They were so smug and horrible to deal with during the whole process. My mother was the most wonderful woman and now she is like a child all because someone didn't do their job and didn't care either. NO to TEXAS for medical care!!!

Hi, chirpybirdy.

Thank you for your sympathies.

I am sorry to hear that your mom was injured and to that great extent.

I hope you, too, find peace after your horrible experience.


I’m deeply sorry for your loss, Joe.

Thank you.
