I read that the main reason for his health decline was that his surgeon was unfamiliar with treating obese patients. That I can believe. Kim is/was probably the only fat person in the whole country. Everyone else is starving!
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.
He isn't/wasn't merely fat, but extremely obese, with a BMI of approximately 45. That alone makes him a poor risk for any surgery.
Add to that known cardiac issues, heavy smoking, etc., and no reputable surgeon would touch him.
(Of course in the DRNK, I doubt the surgeon had much choice. )

I can't get over how self centered most (seemingly) people are
It's not just in your building! It's everywhere!
Seriously, I spend way more time than I'd like, listening to type A people drone on about their miserable self-centered lives. I've got a retired neighbor who just loves to talk...I avoid him, especially during work hours. I've got a brother-in-law who calls me just about every day because he is bored and has no friends. Then, there is the current example of a non-technical colleague who needs help troubleshooting a slow wifi issue at her new house. It's been around 25 min. now on this phone call and finally past the point of 'turn in off and turn it back on'...to be continued.
I wanted to get out of a lease and "played up" the stomping part. The landlord came to check me out personally. As luck would have it, at that moment we hear stomping and he goes: "What's that noise?!" "Oh, it's someone climbing the stairs" (3 story appt; stairs). No contest.
It was only in wine that he laid down no limit for himself, but he did not allow himself to be confused by it.

That's nothing... ours shout and sing songs till 4A.M., they also put loud music at night and from time to time they just jump making all the glass in the house shake, oh, and not to mention moving furniture or just letting chairs fall loud when they move those (again they always do this from 21:00 to 4:00).
I've tried to talk with them, asked them to stop, menaced them with call the police, even called the police twice.
Of course, nothing worked.
Once my downstairs neighbor came our home to ask if we could stop making noise... you can't imagine her face when I told her the noise came from our upstairs neighbors.
And this doesn't ends here: they throw their shaved hairs through the window (don't ask me why) and ashes from cigarettes too (in the inner courtyard)... we don't use it, but our downstairs neighbor gets her clothes dirt with this when she puts clothes in the clothesline...
Every single time I tried to speak with my upstairs neighbor he always tell me he has been here for 2 years (in his mind this gives him some kind of allowance) and that he respects a lot the neighbors... GO FIGURE!
I guess it's an education thing, add here a lot of I DON'T CARE and you have the perfect neighbor.
When the f***ing virus thing ends I'll just move to an attic in a different building.
