In Defense of Mayonnaise
For indeed, if he discover and declare unaided by the side of his patients their present, past and future circumstances, he will be able to inspire greater confidence that he knows about illness, and thus people will decide to put themselves in his care. Every patient is different, every disorder is different, every disorder within a disorder is different.

People are unpredictable, their illness even more so. But there exist other subtleties that are harder to admit to. In my first week as an intern, I spoke to the family of an year-old patient, Nora. She lay gasping, racked by sepsis, her skin bruised from intravenous drips, her legs swollen from heart failure, her consciousness clouded from all of it. We were indeed lucky the next morning. We were also lucky for the next week and the month after that, at which point Nora went home, happy and healthy.
Assuming the diagnosis is right in the first place, prognostication is further complicated by medical advances — the very advances designed to improve prognosis. Algorithms used following cardiac arrest are no longer universally valid.
Whether I’ll Live or Die
Walk into an intensive-care unit and you might see a comatose patient swaddled in cooling blankets, surrounded by ice packs, a drip running cold fluids through their veins. Therapeutic hypothermia aims to protect the brain from a lack of blood flow. Before this technique, neurologists could start to ascertain prognosis in a comatose patient even by day three.
Watch if the pupil dilates with light, see if the eye blinks as a wisp of cotton wool touches the cornea. But for comatose patients who have been rendered hypothermic, everything changes. The old algorithm falls apart. A new one takes its place. Technology sustains our organs until we are well past the point of awareness and coherence. Besides, how do you attend to the thoughts and concerns of the dying when medicine has made it almost impossible to be sure who the dying even are?
Is someone with terminal cancer, dementia, incurable congestive heart failure dying, exactly? Even if there is only a one-in-a-million chance of prolonged survival, there will still be very occasional patients who live longer. Stephen Jay Gould, himself a scientist, was diagnosed with an abdominal mesothelioma at the age of He faced a median survival of eight months. This did not simply mean he probably had eight months left to live.
Mesothelioma statistics vary from many other types of cancer. Whilst most patients do have a life expectancy close to the median, a very small number do far better. Could he be one of them? I had to place myself amidst the variation. Gould was able to place himself as someone who might survive for a reasonable amount of time because all the features of his specific presentation his symptoms, his investigation results suggested that was the case.
He went on to have surgery and experimental chemotherapy. He died 20 years later from lung cancer, unrelated to his original mesothelioma. Not all survival curves for cancer look like the one for mesothelioma. Alive or dead, we still belong to the Lord. Good News Translation If we live, it is for the Lord that we live, and if we die, it is for the Lord that we die.

Die Quotes - BrainyQuote
There are consequences. Sickness back then was no joke.
Die and yes but the consequences are pretty much what you would assume based on what the scene explains and only effects Kephallonia. I like these responses. I chose to let them die because I figured the generic choice would be to let them live. That's pretty cool that there is actually an outcome in the game.
Is this the first AC game to have these kind of choices? Sod it all, I figured that was the case. I tried to follow Phoibe all the way back to Sami, just to see if she said anything else about the encounter I got sidetracked by a floaty little exclamation point icon that I had to check out.
Origins featured a significant amount of "extra" dialog from important people, but I have yet to check it out in Odyssey to see if they added extra little tidbits like that. I had to summon my horse just to keep up with her:-O. Last edited by EbonHawk ; 15 Oct, pm.
