Our body is wonderfully made
Historical picture of the Day

There is scripture where the Psalmist says, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
Awhile back when my son Mark and I were lifting a prebuilt wall, much smaller than walls we have lifted together, I heard a pop in my upper right arm and the arm became noticeably weaker. We did get the wall up and I took a small break to try to figure what had happened. It was easy to see there was a noticeable indent in my upper arm where ‘old muscle’ used to be. Now there was a hump near the crook of my arm. I figured part of my muscle had come loose at the shoulder.
To me the amazing part I did not hurt. So I tell my DR. this time what I thought had happened and that is when he leaned forward, raised his voice and said, “YOU ARE NOT A DOCTOR!” He then nicely explained I had two tendons connecting the arm muscle to the shoulder, and I had pulled one of them loose. He asked did I want it fixed?
I returned the question, “If you were near 80 would you elect the surgery.”
Of course he would not answer, but only said, “This is your decision not mine!” So I told him I would wait. With that he said to not put too much pressure on the arm, it was much weaker than it should be. Now what amazes me I can hardly tell the difference.
Okay since I am not a Doctor, I have researched some. I must admit I am still not a Doctor (I probably need another year of study, LOL).
I read this:
*** It's possible for your body to survive without a surprisingly large fraction of its internal organs. Even if you lose your stomach, your spleen, 75% of your liver, 80% of your intestines, one kidney, one lung, and virtually every organ from your pelvic and groin area, you wouldn't be very healthy, but you would live.
So for a few days, along with some historical pictures, Dr. Darnell will post a snippet of what I have discovered.
The first bit is for you guys with swimming pools:
During your lifetime, you will produce enough saliva to fill two swimming pools. Actually, saliva is more important than you realize. If your saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.
This human body is amazing and it is wonderfully put together!
