It’s A Miracle!

There has been a good deal of attention paid to the faults of our medical system here on this blog. However, I think this is a great chance to acknowledge that despite its shortcomings, medicine in the U.S. is capable of incredible works. Take seven-year-old Heather McNamara who recently underwent 23 hours of surgery to remove a tumor from her abdomen. The surgeons had to literally remove six of her organs to get to the tumor and then replace them back into her body. The one of a kind surgery has been deemed a great success and Heather is looking forward to getting home and playing with her dog. Just amazing!
