bad one that cost half her face." She lived," the doctors told her parents she would always live in a skilled facility. Why? Based on science she would never be able to do anything
for herself. The doctors talked to katie about a face transplant. For katie this was a big decision, in order for this to happen someone would have to die. Well the door opened in 2017

Last year my Surgeon and GI doctor starting discussing a reversal of my colostomy. The surgeon was sure that the surgery would be a success. The GI doctor said before he signed off
