Bag Balm and Duct Tape, tales of a Vermont doctor, written by Beach Conger, md.

I thought it was WD 40 and duct tape can fix anything. Windex will cure anything...

I do like wooh's idea of frozen blueberries over peas for head/brain " injuries"

In accordance with my previous meme posts, I shall draw on a reliable source for my own suggestion as to how Jahi's family should attempt to bring her back.

Ladies and gentlemen: a miracle man.

But no hurry. She's been "mostly dead" since December 12. And besides...

Question, I just took a molecular biology class where we learned about apoptosis. So, how does that apply to the state this child is in?? I have read, somewhere, that the cells in the brain have undergone lysis?? Is that apoptosis?? Will the cells of the other organs do the same??:o

Apoptosis is programmed cellular death that takes place in an orderly fashion. What is going on in this girl's brain is necrosis, which is a premature form of cellular death which is not organized and is accidental.

 

The cells in her body are dying because she is dead.
