And within six months of qualifying, 100% of graduates had found employment. This statistic compares favourably to the UK average of 61.9% of graduates from all subject areas, and the average for all allied health service graduates (87.3%)*.
I haven’t mocked you. I only stated that it wasn’t ink.
This is my right ankle. I fell down the stairs in the parking garage at work on November 15, 2006. Yep going on 5 years and today as I was getting off the elevator at work, I began to limp. It was weird and just out of nowhere. Maybe one of the screws hit a nerve.
I have a plate with 6 screws in it on the side of my leg and then 2 long screws coming from the bottom of my foot.
Zahra Aboutalib, from Morocco, delivered a child she’d been carrying for almost half a century. This shocking yet fascinating story began in 1955 when Zahra went into labor. She was rushed to a hospital, but after watching a woman dying on the operation table during a Caesarean section, Zahra fled back in her small village outside Casablanca. After the pains were gone and the baby stopped kicking, Zahra considered him a “sleeping baby”. “Sleeping babies” are, according to Moroccan folk belief, babies that can live inside a woman’s womb to protect her honor.
When Zahra was 75, the excruciating pains occurred again. Doctors performed an ultrasound test and discovered that her “sleeping child” was actually an ectopic pregnancy. What is even more amazing is how Zahra survived and how the dead fetus was accepted by the body just like another organ. Generally, this doesn’t happen. If not discovered in time, the growing fetus will eventually strain and burst the organ that contains it. Under these circumstances, the mother has few surviving chances. After nearly five hours, the surgeons successfully removed Zahra’s calcified fetus.
Stone babies, lithopedions, are an extremely rare medical phenomenon. According to the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, only 290 cases of stone babies have been documented.
Horses unfortunately don’t politely lay down when you want them to be anesthetized; anesthesia is horses is risky for many reasons, but one of them is that upon initial administration of your anesthetic, they are standing, and then they fall. That is just the nature of these animals. This is minimized with using a padded stall and floor, however, sometimes they do injure themselves.
This horse presented with a simple fracture of the leg. It was anesthetized for surgical repair, but when it went down, it fell onto the injured leg. The second photo shows the leg after the fall.
The horse had to be euthanized on the table.
Just one of many reasons I don’t intend to enter equine practice.
Eeesh that’s a nasty fracture!
