I really like New Amsterdam on Netflix right now. It kinds of reminded me of The Good Doctor because of the hospital setup and all. Great show!

Hello Hereware and thanks for the idea. I just had it checked-up and tried to understand "New Amsterdam" and perhaps it might be on Youtube soon?

... Mind you, I sometimes experience some difficulties in understanding new movies and the "murmured" spoken language, which is often hard to understand for people, whose first language is not English...

... But in most of the old movies one can always understand every single word and the actors also made a great effort "in the olden days" to speak very clearly  ...  :grouphug;

Dialysis: General Discussion / Re: COVID vaccine availability

Just heard to interesting items about efficacy today:

1.  Moderna protects for at least 6 mos.

2.  Doctors aren't sure about the efficacy of vaccines for solid organ transplant patients.  The jury is still out on research, so continue to follow recommended safeguards (masks, social distancing, handwashing, etc) for now.

kristina: Thank you for your response. His nephrologist said only pain management specialists can prescribe pain meds now. He might see a neurologist tho to see what they say. Or his primary.

Hereware:  Yes, thanks for the warning. He's aware of the dangers of Ibuprofen but is desperate for relief. Pain will do that to a person and he's in severe pain.

Dialysis: Transplant Discussion / Re: Johns Hopkins Transplant Vaccine study
« Last post by iolaire on April 07, 2021, 05:47:20 AM »
Looking in the footnote of the John Hopkin's study letter I found reference to this letter (Free):
Early Development and Durability of SARS-CoV-2 Antibodies Among Solid Organ
Transplant Recipients: A Pilot Study
https://journals.lww.com/transplantjournal/Citation/9000/Early_Development_and_Durability_of_SARS_CoV_2.95419.aspx
This was a very small study of 18 transplant patients who were positive tested for COVID.  Its an interesting read, 3 of 18 went to ICU, 1 ventilated and most developed antibodies.
Most participants (89%) had experienced COVID-19 symptoms; 72% were hospitalized. Among those hospitalized, 15% were admitted to the ICU and 8% were mechanically ventilated. COVID-19 convalescent plasma (CCP) was administered to 3 kidney and 2 lung recipients.  ... In this study of antibody development among immunosuppressed SOTRs, we found antibody levels suggestive of neutralizing immunity in the majority of participants. ... Interestingly, among those who had more severe disease, there was a trend towards higher antibody levels.

I'm still following one thread here, about the efficacy of the vaccine to diabetic patients.

I hope this can be studied asap as it's really quite alarming and causes anxiety.

Ibuprofen can cause a lot of harm if taken regularly. Please be careful.

Hello enginist,

... I forgot to mention that I have not bothered to find out about Uri Geller, because I don't think anyone could possibly be able to bend a spoon or any stainless steel, so therefore the "Uri-Geller-spoons" were obviously already "semi-bent" by being specially re-heated to a high degree and then "splashed" into ice-cold water, to create some brittleness beforehand? Mind you, I am not a metallurgist, just read a few books on decorative ironwork ...

... I also must admit that I have not yet read any of the books written by Leon Uris, because I have heard them to be a little bit too "long-winded" and I have not yet had the time. Perhaps later, I don't know ...  :waving;
