The Only Survivor of the Derrick Todd Lee Murders

The author’s description: Divine Justice: The Dianne Alexander Story is inspired by an actual event. It gives in depth details about my encounter with The Southwest Louisiana Serial Killer “Derrick Todd Lee.” But most of all, the book speaks about divine interventions from the beginning to the end of my horrible ordeal. I pray that this book will help you to see that God is a God of “Love and Forgiveness.”

Preemie born more than 3 YEARS ago has gone home from hospital

A Utah girl is finally going home after spending the first three years of her life in a hospital in Ohio.

Zariah Donovan was born prematurely at just 23 weeks, six days gestation in September 2015.

During her time in the NICU, she developed such a serious lung disease that doctors told her parents, Shawn Donovan and Vilayvone Thipsouvan, that she had a zero percent chance of survival. 

Zariah was took weak to go home and no medical center near the family could provide the care that she needed.

The family learned of a specialized program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital – 1,700 miles away – and agreed to admit her.

After years spent in physical, occupational and speech therapy, Zariah’s lungs finally grew strong enough and she was cleared to go home.   

Zariah Donovan, three, is finally going home to Utah.<p data-recalc-dims=Read more at: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6603959/Preemie-born-3-YEARS-ago-gone-home-hospital.html

Doctor double act can help you live healthier for longer in their anti-ageing series for the Mail

TV doctor Chris van Tulleken is explaining how he and his other half underwent counselling last year.

‘Couples’ counselling, like marriage guidance, I guess,’ he says. ‘We just felt it would be a good thing to do.’

But it wasn’t his marriage that was in trouble (everything with journalist wife Dinah, the mother of his one-year-old daughter, is tickety-boo); it was his relationship with his genetic other half. 

 Today in the Mail's pullout, the twins focus on anti-ageing your brain, and show you simple strategies to give it a boost — from telling you why you're becoming forgetful to revealing the techniques you can use to improve brain health and function

Season 6 opens with “Honeymoon,” involving Jake and Amy (Melissa Fumero), who tied the knot in the Season 5 finale.

3 dead in apparent murder-suicide may have been in apartment for days: neighbor

MIDDLETOWN – The three people who were found dead after an apparent murder-suicide in an apartment building in Middletown may have been there for several days.

Monica Dickens, who lives in the same apartment building on the 100 block of South Union Street, said a smell began to fill the building yesterday, prompting another neighbor to call the police.

She thought it may have been an animal until the officers, who responded to the welfare-check call, knocked on her door and asked her if she heard any gunshots over the last few days.

“I didn’t hear anything,” she said, still somewhat surprised at what had happened.

Police have not yet released the names of the deceased. She said a man, woman and a child lived in the apartment.

“They were always fighting, and I would always hear yelling,” Dickens said. “But I never expected all of this to

Grandfather of murdered baby: ‘Enough Jewish blood has been spilled’ – The Jerusalem Post

I would like to share with you my reflections on the tremendously tumultuous period that my family and I experienced this past week. It was marked by the two extremes of the death of our three-day-old grandson at the hands of murderous Arab terrorists, and the absolutely miraculous survival of our daughter, Shira, in the same attack.

Shira’s husband Amichai Ish-Ran was also wounded in the terrorist shooting onslaught – surviving three bullets to his leg. Paying no heed to his own condition, he began the process of saving Shira’s life by stopping her heavily bleeding wound with his hands. A Magen David Adom ambulance medic named Betzalel Ben-Hamu, with Shira’s cooperation even as she fought off unconsciousness, continued the miracle.

I can tell you that at this beautiful couple’s wedding just nine months ago, our
