Hospitalized with pulmonary embolism

Braxton is taken to the hospital during the dress rehearsal for Dancing with the Stars. Host Bergerson:

Tamar is not here. You’ve noticed that. She was taken to the hospital earlier today midday through dress rehearsal. Now, I underscored at the top, this is very much a live show. We don’t have all the information right now. She might return in time to dance live here. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.

Braxton confirms she will be cutting her season short due to a pulmonary embolism. She also added that she also will not continue as a special guest on tour with musical artist KEM.

With a Heavy heart I regret to inform you that my season of #dwts has to come to an end along with the rest of my tour dates with @musicbykem. After yesterday's final #dwts performance I went back to the hospital (after the doctors didn't want me to leave in the first place) only to find out that I don't have pneumonia but something way more serious and that is having several P.E.'s (blood clots in both sides of my lungs) As you all know I will be the first to always encourage anyone to push through any obstacle that comes along one's way. But in this case, my health is my current obstacle. .. And in TRUE #tamartian form I must go about this the exact same way as I would anything else. I woke up to a mirror and saw myself this morning and that makes me the winner because that almost wasn't the case. 🏆Take care of yourselves… I love you and thank you ALL for your support❤️ p.s. Big hugs and kisses to my boo @iamvalc for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER😘🙌🏽🙌🏾

Admitted to hospital

After falling ill in Glasgow, Cafferkey is flown to London by military aircraft and admitted to the specialist treatment isolation unit at Royal Free Hospital in London.

We can confirm that Pauline Cafferkey was transferred from the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow to the Royal Free London hospital in the early hours of this morning due to an unusual late complication of her previous infection by the Ebola virus. She will now be treated in isolation in the hospital’s high-level isolation unit under nationally agreed guidelines. The Ebola virus can only be transmitted by direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected person while they are symptomatic, so the risk to the general public remains low.

First double hand transplant recipient

Harvey is the first person to receive a double hand transplant. He lost his hands and feet to a bacterial infection when he was two years old. A 40-member transplant team led by Dr. Levin had practiced extensively on cadavers before attempting the operation. Levin:

When I met Zion, I said, ‘Why do you want hands? Zion why do you want hands?’ He’s a very, very intelligent young man. He said, ‘I want to swing on the monkey bars’. You know, that’s sort of a milestone for a lot of kids, and why shouldn’t he be like another child? And you know, our hope is over time, that indeed he’ll be able to do that…This is the end of the beginning, not the beginning of the end,. We’ve made a big step forward with this operation


So, when I get these hands, I will be proud of what hands I get. I will be proud.

AccusationReports crime

In an annual audit, authorities shut down a clinic in Salem County, N.J. that gave expired or wrong vaccinations to uninsured children through the Shots for Tots program between October 2014 and June 2015. The audit reveals a two-year-old boy was given an excessive dose of an HPV vaccination for cervical cancer (Gardasil), a one-year-old child was given a flu mist dose at the wrong age, two children were given expired vaccinations, and one child was given a wrong vaccination for an unconfirmed disease. Authorities also dispose of $20,000 worth of vaccines that perished following improper storage. Salem County Counsel:

If errors occur, errors occur. And you got to step up to the plate, and you have to make sure somebody’s not harmed further.

Undergoes double mastectomy

Wilson says she has had a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, after getting a second opinion after being given an all clear:

I have taken a leave from the play Fish in the Dark to deal with a personal health issue. Last week, with my husband by my side, and with the love and support of family and friends, I underwent a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction for breast cancer after a diagnosis of invasive lobular carcinoma. I am recovering and most importantly, expected to make a full recovery. Why? Because I caught this early, have excellent doctors and because I got a second opinion…A friend who had had breast cancer suggested I get a second opinion on my pathology and my gut told me that was the thing to do. A different pathologist found invasive lobular carcinoma. His diagnosis of cancer was confirmed by, yet, another pathologist. I share this to educate others that a second opinion is critical to your health. You have nothing to lose if both opinions match up for the good, and everything to gain if something that was missed is found, which does happen. Early diagnosis is key.

I feel blessed to have a loving, supportive husband, family, friends and doctors and that I am the beneficiary of advances in the field of breast cancer and reconstruction. I am getting better every day and look forward to renewed health. I hope this will encourage others to get a second opinion and to trust their instincts if something doesn’t ‘feel’ right.

Brain tumor treated in India

Rice has CyberKnife robotic radio surgery in Bangalore, India to treat brain tumor which can not be treated using regular surgery methods.

When they tell you they can do nothing about the medical condition in SA and you are going to die, you need to have a plan B in place. That was my plan B. You have to be proactive.

The surgery is successful.

It went very well and I feel good. It went much better than I had expected. You cannot believe how fantastic the technology is (in India). I experienced no pain during the treatment and the fear that the cancer would spread to my left has also dissipated. I received CyberKnife treatment for three hours.

Ovaries removed

Writes Article

Jolie undergoes a laparoscopic bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy to have her ovaries removed, after her doctor warns her that she could have cancer. She is entering early menopause and can no longer have children. Describing the process:

Your CA-125 is normal,” he said. I breathed a sigh of relief. That test measures the amount of the protein CA-125 in the blood, and is used to monitor ovarian cancer. I have it every year because of my family history. But that wasn’t all. He went on. “There are a number of inflammatory markers that are elevated, and taken together they could be a sign of early cancer.” I took a pause. “CA-125 has a 50 to 75 percent chance of missing ovarian cancer at early stages,” he said. He wanted me to see the surgeon immediately to check my ovaries.

I went through what I imagine thousands of other women have felt. I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn’t live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren. I called my husband in France, who was on a plane within hours. The beautiful thing about such moments in life is that there is so much clarity. You know what you live for and what matters. It is polarizing, and it is peaceful. That same day I went to see the surgeon, who had treated my mother. I last saw her the day my mother passed away, and she teared up when she saw me: “You look just like her.” I broke down. But we smiled at each other and agreed we were there to deal with any problem, so “let’s get on with it.

Regardless of the hormone replacements I’m taking, I am now in menopause. I will not be able to have any more children, and I expect some physical changes. But I feel at ease with whatever will come, not because I am strong but because this is a part of life. It is nothing to be feared.

Plane Crash

Ford is at the controls when his two-seat 1940s-era military trainer crashes near Santa Monica Airport in California. Doctors present at the scene give aid while waiting for emergency personnel to transport him to a nearby hospital. Witness:

I was one of the first people to run from the hole toward the plane. Four or five men pulled the pilot out of the plane. They got him away from the plane. They were concerned it would catch on fire. Two doctors were there, and they had a 1st aid box with them. He was conscious, talking a little. He has a HUGE cut on his head. A swath of his skin was missing. There was blood dripping down his face.

Suffering moderate trauma, but “alert and conscious” he is taken to the hospital. Ben Ford, the actor’s son:

Dad is okay, battered but okay. He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man.

Crashes bike

Car Crash

Feld says that his biking days are over after a crash that leaves him unconscious and in the hospital.

I have no memory of what actually happened. The last thing I remember, after much prompting, was turning left onto Iris from Broadway. While the 911 calls were all for a hit and run, there’s no real evidence of that since my bike is generally fine and nothing, including me, looks like it was hit by a car. At this point, I’m guessing that I took the turn too wide and must have hit the curb and lost control of the bike. Maybe I squeezed my breaks and went over my handlebars. Or maybe I crossed over into a parallel universe for a little while and when I came back landed on my face.

I’m doing ok today. Nothing is broken and according to the hospital I don’t have a concussion. I’ve very banged up. I’ll probably have two black eyes, I have a sprained thumb, and lots of cuts and bruises everywhere. My face is very swollen and my head is very bumpy and weird from all the swelling. I have a persistent headache, no matter how much Advil I take. My glasses are destroyed so I’m wearing some old ones, which probably isn’t helping…My biking career, short as it was, is officially over.

Jake finally can speak for the first time since last Wed… Late last night (while still ventilated & unable to speak) one of the male nurses took a bandage off of Jake’s neck where they have tubes for his meds… It was so unpleasant to Jake he wrote on the pad they gave him three letters… DDT… Even though Jake is off of the ventilator for the time being he will be monitored for 24-48 hours before docs decide if it is safe to keep him off.
