Just What the Doctor Ordered... - Dreamstime

We (the general public) have the perception that these are troubled times in the world of medicine. The world always faces some dire conditions, and yet there always seems to be a new log for the fire. The added threat of H1N1 pandemic seems to be what keeps medicine an open topic at present, but let's face it... the struggle of health and wellness goes on with or without primetime coverage. I commend healthcare professionals everywhere for their fine work.

I am all about lovin' the doctors! I caught H1N1 this week. Modern medicine kept it from turning into something worse, and believe me, I got it pretty bad! Hail to healthcare!

@smartview27 - Thank you for commenting! I appreciate it.

@Wildmac... great thoughts. I agree with pandemics (and other disasters) being the natural order of things. Just as much as I believe that our doctors and healers are the physical manifestation of our most basic instinct... self preservation. Use of our intelligence and the advancement of medicine is just our particular species' way of battling extinction. It may give us the unfair advantage, but in a way, it probably seems unfair to us that far simpler organisms can go dormant and reanimate. Of course, I wasn't really trying to get terribly existential... :)

I was thinking more along the lines of, "their quest continues whether the news covers it or not."

Cheers to you as well, my friend.

I think that the pandemics and natural disasters that happen are just a part of the cycle of life. We all have to die from something and no amount of plastic surgery and bionic implants are going to stop it. Years ago I read a short science fiction story about a man that was sent back through time a hundred years, to kill the Dr that cured all the worlds diseases. The world had grown so overpopulated that no-one could move and there was no food. We need to learn to live in rhythm with the planet and take the knocks as they come. JMO Cheers :0)
