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.

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.

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.

Woman suffers permanent brain damage after drinking a liter of soy sauce

An American woman suffered permanent brain damage after she drank a liter of soy sauce in an attempt to ‘cleanse her colon.’

A 39-year-old woman drank the condiment believing it would flush toxins from her body, recounted Dr Bernard on his medical YouTube channel Chubbyemu,

Instead, she ended up going into cardiac arrest and was left with irreversible nerve damage.  

Doctors at the hospital discovered that she had 200 grams of salt in her blood, which is five times the lethal dose.

They tried to bring the sodium levels in her blood – but the change was too rapid, which resulted in her being left brain dead.

Man, 36, literally coughed up part of his LUNG after he was hospitalized with heart palpitations

A California man literally coughed up part of his lung after he was hospitalized for heart palpitations.  

In a case report from the New England Journal of Medicine, surgeons from the University of California San Francisco Medical Center presented the case of a 36-year-old patient who was admitted to the ICU with chronic heart failure.

Due to his history of poor cardiovascular health, he’d had a pacemaker implanted in case his heart became completely blocked.

However, throughout his first week in the hospital, he coughed up blood and mucus and, during an intense coughing spell, he managed to expectorate an intact cast of the bronchial tree before he died the following week.

Baby born after first womb transplant from dead donor

A mother has given birth to a healthy baby girl after surgeons implanted a womb in her body taken from a dead person.

The birth, in Brazil, is the first reported involving a deceased donor womb transplant.

Ten previous attempts, in the US, Czech Republic and Turkey, to achieve a live birth using a womb taken from a dead individual, had all ended in failure.

The first birth after a womb transplant from a living donor took place in Sweden in September 2013.

Since then there have been 39 such procedures resulting in 11 live births.

The recipient in the ground-breaking latest case involving a dead donor was a 32-year-old woman born without a womb due to a rare genetic disorder.

In September 2016 she was given an unexpected chance of motherhood after undergoing the womb transplant at the Hospital das Clinicas in Sao Paulo.

The uterus was taken from a 45-year-old donor who had died from
