i find it ironic that people make an issue about JW who die in an operation, but the ones that do well are never mentioned . are they implying that people who have blood never die , i think we will find that people die lots of times because of complications. and it is a known fact that those who dont have blood recover much quicker than the one who have been given blood . if a person is very seriously ill the blood of a nother person is like an alian body, and it is just something else that our bodies have to fight against. in fact my sister who had her bowel removed and did not have blood recovered much much better than the ones on the same ward who had been given blood . and it was the same operation . the fact is people like to hear the bad news about JW , but there are many many good stories out there about JW all over the world who did not have blood and the results were great . in fact the medical world have learned lots of things by operating on the JW and now various things are used as a matter of coarse on other patients who are not witnesses because they know it works out better for people .
