Thanks Kai for help and Joe for the slime!

Please help me save Chrom!!! -updated-

Hey guys! Thanks for all your help. Chrom got his surgery and has been doing well ever since. He’s a big happy cat now thanks to you guys. Again thank you sooo much.

Hey, Ina here. I’m sorry for this, but I’m in desperate need of help. 

Chrom has been in and out of the vet for the past 2 months. He has been suffering from chronic urinary blockages back to back. These urinary blockages only happen to male cats and causes them extreme pain and can even lead to death if the cat is unable to urinate. Due to all these emergency vet visits my family has already dished out over $2,000 trying to treat these blockages and since they are rapidly reoccurring the doctor suggested Chrom to get the perineal urethrostomy (P.U. surgery) for cats, which essentially widens his urethra so he can pass any blockage. He already had his 3rd blockage in just of June,13th and is in dire need of this surgery.

Unfortunately, we cannot afford this $3000 surgery and my parents are thinking of putting him to sleep. Chrom is only 4 YEARS OLD and has plenty of time left in this world. I DO NOT want to euthanize him just because we cannot afford a simple surgery.

My step brother made a gofundme here to help raise some money. I’ve only have $500 left in my emergency savings and would really appreciate the help. Even if you can’t donate, please reblog and share this around. I’m seriously determined to help save my sweet prince, Chrom.

Thank you so much for taking your time to read this. Your help is much appreciated.  ; A ;

The story of a 9-year-old Zion Harvey has gone viral. This Black kid can set a perfect example of a strong-willed Black person, who has gone through very hard times. When he was only two years old doctors found that he had a life-threatening infection that damaged kidneys and other parts of the body. As the result, he lost both his hands and his legs below the knees but received a healthy kidney donated by his mom, Pattie Ray.

“Without my mom, I would not be right here right now. It’s been me and my mom forever,” said Zion.

Black people never surrender, especially when they are supported by the strong family,  that continues to exhibit enormous love, resilience, and optimism in the face of hard work and challenges. This kid is so brave and mature, he is a soldier of our time. 

Black people inspire me every day.

Minnesota judge overturns state ban on transgender health coverage
Medically necessary coverage turns out to be legally necessary too.
By Zack Ford

In Minnesota, a judge has ruled that it is illegal for Medicaid to deny coverage for transition-related healthcare services for trans people, including surgery. 

Minnesota’s Supreme Court had actually ruled in favor of covering transition-related surgery back in 1977, but the state’s legislature outlawed it in 2005. This more recent ruling is also sort of redundant, as the Affordable Care Act will already begin covering transition-related surgery in January, but this is an extra step of protection in case anything happens to the ACA under Trump.

A 64-year-old trans man by the name of Evan Thomas sued, with support from the ACLU of Minnesota and OutFront Minnesota, for the right to a double mastectomy. His doctors deemed the procedure medically necessary for resolving his gender dysphoria, but Thomas depended on MA, which denied him coverage. In the meantime, Thomas was relying on chest binding to help resolve his dysphoria, but he had to stop after it caused him chest infections and acute bronchitis.

Ramsey County Judge William Leary concluded that the 2005 state law prohibiting that coverage is unconstitutionally discriminatory. His opinioneffectively outlines the medical consensus on transgender care and the benefits of gender reassignment surgery, noting that the state covers double mastectomies for patients with other concerns but singles out transgender individuals for denial. He also outlines the history of state lawmakers’ efforts to prohibit such coverage.

So, so important. Congratulations, Minnesotans.

ATTENTION INTERNS.

AS PROMISED, IT HAS ARRIVED.

What this is: ideas and tips from a soon-to-be R2 who has survived intern year to help you function as an effective intern so you can focus on the important things: caring for your patients, learning and growing as a physician

What this is not: an encyclopedia, a bible you follow to the letter. The Immutable Truth of Intern Year Reality. This is not going to teach you medicine. This is not geared toward a specific specialty; it is designed to be helpful to an intern starting in any specialty training program.

Where did the self-care part go? For every time I attempted to write it or sought folks to help me write it, I came to realize that everyone’s idea of self-care is different. The basic tenet of self-care in intern year is: remember that if you don’t care for yourself, who will care for your patients? So remember that you deserve and need time and attention for your sanity. And everyone gets by better when they help each other. 

Please feel free to download and use. Please let me know too if I’ve made any errors or if there are things that require editing!! GIVE ME FEEDBACK SO THIS CAN GET BETTER WITH TIME.

Video: Removing the Cerebral Hydatid Cyst!

Brain involvement with hydatid disease occurs in 1-2% of all Echinococcus granulosus infections (tapeworm infection). Cerebral hydatid cysts are usually supratentorial, whereas infratentorial lesions are quite rare.

Reasons I want top surgery

So I can wear clothes I like
So I don’t have to layer clothes in summer
So I can pass easier
So people don’t call me a “lady”
So I can go swimming again
So I don’t have to get crushed in a binder
So I can go outside without worrying
So I feel better about myself
So my dysphoria will go away

My cat had a litter of three kittens 8 weeks ago. This past week, one of them has been coughing, choking, and gagging. After taking her to the vet and having several tests done, the doctor found that the problem is an extremely rare birth defect that is a mass in her esophagus which keeps her from being able to swallow properly

She needs an emergency surgery that is going to cost $1250, plus the $300 I’ve already spent through credit on her tests, plus any medication she’ll need afterward, plus follow up appointments.

We’re close to our goal, but I’d love to get all the way there! Click here for a link to the gofundme page.

I also have an etsy store, and profits from that are currently also going toward the medical expenses for baby Elphie. Link to me etsy here.

I know not everyone can donate, so please share and/or send Elphie your positive vibes. Thanks all <3
