Please help my cousin!!! ❤️ Pass this on and share it. We are currently
trying to raise money for his surgery to remove bullets that are preventing him from walking. 🙏🙏 It broke my heart to hear him crying on the phone today and we are asking for your help.

On May 11th, Mykelt Anthony was the unfortunate and blameless victim of a drive by shooting in Belize City, Belize. ’

While waiting for a ride to go back home, an assailant approached and shot three bystanders, Mykelt being one of the bystanders. The other two people shot suffered from non life threatening injuries. Mykelt, however, was shot 3 times, twice in the back and once in the chest. One of the bullets grazed his spinal cord and another was lodged in his right lung.
Doctors operated on him but were only able to extract 1 bullet so far. Mykelt is currently paralyzed from the waist down, with no feeling in his legs. He requires surgery to extract the 2 remaining bullets with all hopes of walking again….. (You Can Read More On The Page)

Bullying in Medicine.

So for those who are interested, ABC FourCorners just finished airing an episode about bullying in the medical field. This is in light of a news article months ago of a female surgeon commenting how it’s better for junior doctors to comply to the sexual harassment make by their training doctors so that their career won’t be jeopardy. The article also mentioned a female neurosurgeon who filed a complaint about her training doctor sexually harassing her, and as a result, her career was affected. She couldn’t find a job in public hospitals and resorted to working in the private sector instead, and she was only allowed to use the theatres in public hospitals for half a day once a month.

The episode also discussed a recent report about a female neurosurgeon harassing nurses and junior doctors. You can read it here if you are interested. Personally, I find that really morbid and depressing. If you are a surgeon and a female, you should have made yourself to be an example of success and inspire junior doctors. You could have made a great impact to all the women studying to become doctors, especially since there’s already a problem with the male: female ratio being completely out of proportion in surgical specialties. 

Albeit, I’m glad that these issues are being raised in the public as it is truly a wake-up call for the Australian Medical System (and possibly others overseas) to fix this issue, rather than sweeping it under the carpet like how they tend to dismiss complaints of bullying and sexual harasssment.

This is Brielle. 

Brielle was in my first class when i started teaching. Being the only girl in a class with nine other boys, we stuck together. Soon after I started teaching Brielle decided to change her name to Cinderella. She would not answer to any direction unless you adressed her as Cinderella or Princess Brielle.She came up with the idea that since she was princess brielle i got to be Queen Brittany.

Brielle was born with a heart condition and two weeks ago she went in to what was supposed to be a minimally invasive procedure. When the doctors couldnt do the procedure as planned. They had to do open heart surgery. 

Brielle was in the hospital for about five days and then sent her home. While she was home her heart rate and blood pressure dropped to a very low level.Last night was a very scary night for the family and as of my current update brielle is stable. She has a clot in her heart and it is continuing to fill with fluid.

With her mom having to take longer off of work to take care of Brielle they are having a hard time making ends meet. This is her GoFundMe page.

Organ Care System.

In an organ transplant surgery, timing is critical. Doctors drop organs into a plastic bag and put them on ice. But lungs soon stop breathing. Hearts stop beating. The organs essentially shut down and start to deteriorate. This means doctors have only about five to 10 hours to get the lung from the donor into the recipient. If the travel time is too long, the organ can’t be used and goes to waste. An Andover company known as TransMedics came up with world’s first commercial, portable, warm blood perfusion system that allows a new type of organ transplant, called a living organ transplant. This new technology, called an Organ Care System, is designed to maintain organs in a warm, functioning state outside of the body to optimize their health and allow continuous clinical evaluation. Hearts beat, lungs breathe, kidneys produce urine and livers produce bile. The device is currently not FDA approved but is undergoing clinical testing.

Dua Chain

Salaams,


My name is Leslie Pérez and this 25th of May my mom is getting operated from her back. Doctors are removing her vertebra and inserting a new one due to some disck’s and other big problems. But I know ALLAH got’s this. If she doesn’t get this operation she might end as a vegetable in bed and loose her train of thought or memory…


Please make Dua for my mami Maria. I’m a covert and my mom has always been so sweet and understanding and supporting in my new faith almost two years ago. She is my everything. I love her to death. I have not clicked yet that in 3 days she will get surgery not t mess with my mind and uni but I need support. Dua’s are very welcomed.


Salaams from Puerto Rico

-Leslie Pérez

Once a patient is on the operating room table asleep, draped off, and ready to be cut open, I do not consider him or her human. All I see is a diseased appendix, a cancerous thyroid mass, a hernia, or an inflamed gallbladder. Yes, I realize there is a life, a soul, attached to these organs. In order to do my job effectively, however, I cannot allow it to be a distraction. There are no “feelings” inside the operating room, no time for reflection. Here, I do not consider myself human… I am a robot, blocking out any outside interferences.

Neurons Constantly Rewrite Their DNA 

Johns Hopkins scientists have discovered that neurons are risk takers: They use minor “DNA surgeries” to toggle their activity levels all day, every day. Since these activity levels are important in learning, memory and brain disorders, the researchers think their finding will shed light on a range of important questions.

Hi Taylor, my name is Sophie. I just wanted to share with you that on Wednesday the 27th of May I will be having surgery on my ears. I haven’t been able to listen to music properly for 6 months and now I must have surgery. So the reason I am sharing this with you is because when I wake up from my surgery, my doctor asked what I wish to do first and I said listen to your music. So he has organized for me to wake up to the sound of 1989. So know that on the 27th of May I will be able to listen to your music again and that is going to make the pain of this surgery feel like nothing, So thank you taylorswift ❤️


**HELPING HANDS: KOCHI HOSPITAL TRANSPLANTS BOTH HANDS OF FORMER AFGHAN SOLDIER**

In a marathon surgery procedure lasting almost 15 hours, Kochi-based Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre successfully performed twin-hand transplant on an ex-Army captain from Afghanistan, who had lost both his hands in a de-mining operation.

It could be the first case of twin-hand transplant in Afghanistan. Four months back, another twin-hand transplant was done at the hospital, which was claimed as the first such transplant in India.
The former military captain Abdul Rahim, 30, had lost both hands while diffusing mines in the war-torn country three years ago.
The transplant was carried out in a marathon surgical feat lasting for almost 15 hours with more than 20 surgeons and eight anaesthetics participating in the procedure. Prof Subramania Iyer, head of the plastic surgery department, said each hand required connecting two bones, two arteries, four veins and 14 tendons.
The donor was a 54-year-old brain dead accident victim from Kerala.

“Rahim has regained considerable amount of function of both his hands using them for day-to-day activities. He will need intensive physiotherapy for another 9 to 10 months, for which he will be done in Kochi,“ said Iyer.

We can’t even begin to imagine how we would be able to function and carry out our daily chores without our hands. We are amazed at the level of advancement that medical science has reached today. It is almost surreal; it is now actually possible for a person who has lost his hands to get a new pair of human hands.

We congratulate the hospital and the medical team for making this advancement in India and achieving this medical feat. And more than that, we appreciate them for helping a person regain his lost confidence and live his life normally, without any hindrances.

Grim news for Lady.

Lady has Egg Yolk Peritonitis (Ceritonitis).

The eggs she hadn’t laid were in her stomach, they hadn’t made it into her ovum and rotted in there causing massive amounts of inflammation and infection.

Her chances of surviving the night are very slim. She had stopped breathing twice during surgery and hasn’t woken up yet.

She is now however breathing on her own, but she has not woken yet.

She was spayed during this because she had more follicles starting to grow and he wanted to avoid this happening again if she does manage to pull through.

Please send good vibes / thoughts, prayers or what ever it is you do for her.

She is the first beardie I ever had and I love her so much that it kills me to know she is in this much pain and might not survive. 

It hurts me so much to see this happy fat beardie

Turned into this.
