Life is made up of small pleasures. Happiness is made up of those tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently. And if you don't collect all these tiny successes, the big ones don't really mean anything. ~Norman Lear

Never Judge Anybody, Think Before You Act

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor. Once seeing him, the dad yelled:

“Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense of responsibility?”

The doctor smiled and said:

“I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily. The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Book “From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace”

African Girl Finally Smiles After Surgeons Remove Tumour Spreading Across Face

A 12-year-old girl can finally smile after surgeons removed a tumour that was taking over her whole face - and literally killing her.

Known only as Kaltoumi, the youngster was given just three months to live as the tumour restricted her eating and slowly suffocated her.

After five years living with the growth, she was saved when surgeons aboard the Africa Mercy - a hospital ship giving care to third world countries - docked in Cameroon to perform surgery.

Kaltoumi, who was described as having the 'potential to be a world-changer', was flown to the dock by the Cameroonian government.

Once on board, the surgical team worked tirelessly to remove the tumour.

After the surgery Kaltoumi, who is smiling and eating properly for the first time in years, said: "It feels like a heaviness has been lifted from me."

Dr Gary Parker, surgeon and chief medical officer, described Kaltoumi as the 'poster child' for five billion people unable to access…

Five-Year-Old With 'Worst Chicken Pox Ever' Was Turned Away From A&E

Image
A mum has revealed horrifying images of her little girl with the 'worst chicken pox' her doctors had ever seen - and revealed that she was turned away from A&E twice.

Evie-Beth Taylor was just five when she flummoxed doctors with chickenpox so bad they initially told her parents it might be a rare genetic condition and not the childhood disease at all.

The infection was so severe the little girl was left screaming in pain whenever she was touched, making it impossible for mum Lianne Taylor, 33, to clean her airways.

So poorly she couldn't eat, drink or even use the toilet, poor Evie-Beth's nose became so clogged with 'rock hard' mucus that the little girl struggled to breathe.

Lianne, from Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, called paramedics and her poorly daughter was rushed to A&E twice in just two days.

But Lianne claims she was 'treated like an over the top parent' and was turned away both times, being told that …
