Capsule Endoscopy - complications

  • capsule endoscopy now used commonly for small bowel imaging
  • capsule retention is a potential risk, which can lead to bowel obstruction and perforation

We recently had a patient who had a retention of capsule endoscopy, surgeons were very reluctant to take a look and try and get it out!

This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.
She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.
"No… They don’t, actually."
"And how do you communicate, then?"
"Talking?"
"But… isn’t that complicated for you?"
"It is, sometimes."
"They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.
But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”
It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.

i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.
i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.
little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.

I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.

Americans Were Asked To Place European Countries On A Map. Here’s What They Wrote:

i have been laughing for days “glad to see college paid off” “i went to college i have my masters” “cold”

Reblogging again because perfection

After this, I hope noone that has my Tumblr will ever dare to tell me that Americans aren’t as ignorant of the rest of the world as I make them out to be anymore.

I’m tempted to say something to the effect of “NOT ALL AMERICANS” and then I remember I play those “Name the Countries of the World” games for fun so maybe it is all americans.

I thought it was funny the person who wrote West Spain on Portugal. But to the person who wrote Spain’s butt, you can just fuck yourself.
Sangria was pretty funny too…

But literally everyone knows where Germany is. I think we’ve left quite an impression… *coughs* *runs for cover*
