I appreciate how hard it must have been for you spud2 and it indeed highlights a key point, your love for your child. I think the current case in Perth has also highlighted the same.
it also highlights how each case must be examined on its own. No 2 cases are the same. It also throws up the legal issue of costs. Should the doctors take the decision to operate and the courts rule against the wishes of the parents, if a worse case scenario leaves the child requiring permanent 24 hour care for the rest of their life, who pays the bill? Surely it must be borne in this case by the government.
It also highlights how we need a debate about the right to die. Many would argue that it is inhumane to attempt to preserve life at any cost to the quality of life of the child. Why is it then the case that we find it so hard to discuss the right for a person to choose when and how to end their own suffering, with safeguards of course.
Doseffing - no my skill level hasn't increased - it's just that every puzzle is an easy. There is no variety. This has been an issue (in my opinion) for quite awhile. I stopped playing for a long time because all we got were easy puzzles. I see that hasn't changed. When I first started playing a long time ago, there was a lot of variety - a good mix of easy, medium, hard and expert. Now it's all easy or expert - almost no mediums or hards. I would just love a bit more variety, that's all.
I agree with Gretchen. For me, the mediums and hards are the most enjoyable, but now they are exceedingly rare.
