A French Professor's Remarkable Miracle

    I was reading an article from the BBC.  A Professor Laurent Lantieri replaced the upper portion of a man's face, in two different surgeries and only in a time span of two weeks. Imagine the talent of this man, to put a man's face back together with donor tissue.  I find the extremes of modern day science and medicine a "miracle" in itself. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7987746.stm

    I have a cousin who got his finger caught up in a car engine.  To repair the tip, they sowed his finger inside his chest.  A month later, the muscle had grown out enough to apply his replacement skin, they grew from scratch.  Tony's finger looks perfect.  He has minor nerve damage and that's it.

    Got any amazing science or health care stories you'd care to share?

      Well I don't have any stories but I would like to see the miracle of medicine be available for all.  That would be a miracle. 

      Though I don't think I could give credit to science and health care. lol

      I personally think that making babies the natural way is a miracle. smile

    There is nothing supernatural about this, so this is not a miracle

      Well I happen to disagree.  But I'm sure you already had that figured out.

      Miracle (as defined in Webster):

      3.     a wonder; marvel.
      4.     a wonderful or surpassing example of some quality: a miracle of modern acoustics.

      Yes, yes it is my friend. Just so you know. smile

      Sincerely,
      G|M

        Thanks.  Oh hey, I read a hub somewhere about rodents today and thought I should change my avatar to fit the occasion.  Good hub by the way!
