Science Marches On

July 15, 2009

I found myself utterly impressed by the story of little Hannah Clark, the girl with two hearts (at least for awhile) – via this post on Kottke’s blog, “At six, Hannah Clark received a heart transplant… but they kept the second heart in her chest as well. Ten years later, her new heart failed and they were able to remove it because her old heart had mended itself in the meantime.”

So… they were able to give this girl a second heart, and keep it pumping for a decade – long enough for the first one to heal.  That’s… that’s freakin’ amazing, is what that is.
