    The lady who had her kidneys removed is not dead the last line of the article reads.

    ” She’s not yet healthy enough to get on the nation’s kidney transplant list but when she is, she’ll join more than 95,000 Americans on that list.”

    Re: the kidney story, I think Joe just linked to the older story by mistake. There is an article with an updated below that says she has in fact died.

    That is so beyond f’d up! I hope that hospital has to pay out tons and tons of money to her family. Can you imagine, they take both your kidneys, then tell you “whoops, we made a mistake”, and then put you on a 7 year wait list for a new kidney. Of course she died while waiting, she was super old already.

    Unreal.

    The wife and I are going to the doctor a lot right now for baby stuff. They keep asking her her name and birthdate. She asked why they keep giving her a test on her birthday. I said so they don’t get you confused and give you a circumcision. She didn’t find it as funny as I did but it reminded of poor old Al Bundy. He went in for a circular incision but left with a circumcision.
