The gemara continues to discuss remedies for various diseases as well as explain what causes some of the various diseases.  The gemara then goes back to discuss the mishna – a person who sent a messenger to write a get and then got kordiyakus and then said not to write the get.  The mishna says we ignore his later orders.  There is an argument between Resh Lakish and Rabbi Yochanan about whether we can write the get while he has the kordiyakus or do we wait until he gets better and then we write it based on his earlier instructions.   This touches again on the power of appointing a messenger.  Is he now acting independent of you?  Or is he only an extension of you and if you are no longer of sound mind, then he can’t act for you?
