Is this going to help save lives at other US embassies by using what we've learned about what happened at Benghazi? Now that would be big news! Please explain why it's more important to determine how Benghazi was explained to the public immediately after the incident?
so that more American lives are not sacrificed in the future for the sake of political advantage......

It's not like my husband's on his death bed. He gets around and is his normal self. He's just having complications with one of his wounds and this is the second day in a row we've notified the nurses. Today, they said they'd get back to us at the end of the day knowing the problem started yesterday.
I won't even go into the lack of communication on the part of two on-call doctors and his surgeon the week following his surgery plus the ongoing confusion by his staff about post-op appointments. At least his surgeon wasn't too happy either and said she would find out who was responsible and why.
But here we are again today left to our own devices and hoping what seems to be a growing infection doesn't turn into sepsis before they care enough to call back again.
You get the picture.
On top of all of this, daughter is undergoing another procedure tomorrow.
But we're all going to watch one of our favorite shows I recorded together now.
And they come first.
So later, dem.

RE: "On top of all of this, daughter is undergoing another procedure tomorrow. " I hope that you let your daughter get some good health advice from her local Planned Parenthood clinic. It's always good to consult with a family doctor and be well-informed before making a difficult decision on those type of 'procedures'.

So, why aren't Republicans willing to cooperate? why are they using 'Benghazi' to gain some political advantages in rallying their political base before the 2014 midterm elections?

Watch only the O'Reilly Factor and The Five you big fat ignoramus.
And I have far too much on my mind these days being caretaker, worrier and practically nurse and practitioner to my husband's wounds and complications because the medical profession doesn't seem to know if it's coming or going or eating apple butter.
They're like trained robots who can't think outside the box to even give a shit.
And we even paid the deductible up front and have GOOD insurance.
So please forgive me if I find your kind of hatred infuriating.
Maybe you should have told them you're a Teapartyer so then you'd get home visits

He flew trainers...badly. It was all he was required to do as a millionaire's son. He went AWOL during a campaign that he was quite involved in because he couldn't get the cocaine out of his system. How about that, Pretend Veteran? Tell Vicky she married an old bat.

Had so little time to be on here, I actually thought someone might have even missed me.
Husband can't do much of anything but recline in a chair, watch TV and movies and play games - which is what I've been doing with him much of the time when I'm not doing everything for him, being the chauffeur and having to play the role of physician because we've been pretty much left to our own devices by the real ones.
I can't even think about the upcoming PET scan or the results except to remain positive.
So please back off on the Obama-induced hatred for the time being - if you wouldn't mind.
Care-giver is a tough role, Incognito. emotionally and physically draining..make sure you make some time, as brief as it may be, for you.(if possible, it is not always possible.)

do not feel guilty about it.

let me repeat that.... DO NOT feel guilty about it or it will not be "your" time. you cannot be a good caregiver when you hate what you are doing and yes, that can happen even when taking care of someone you love even more than yourself....(actually, that is the problem, you forget yourself and end up not taking care of yourself so you can do your job...)

best advice i can give you. good luck.
