Visit http://www.julianawetmore.net/story.php Juliana was born in March of 2003. Her pregnancy was "normal" in the beginning. At our first ultrasound, her stomach could not be found. We were brought back two weeks later for another one, when she was a little larger. Still her stomach was not seen. We were sent to a larger hospital, where at about 24 weeks, during another ultrasound, the doctor came in to have a look and told us that he was going to do an amniocentesis. But he did not feel that whatever was happening with Juliana would show on it. He then told us that we needed to make a decision as to whether or not we were going to continue the pregnancy. Thom and I looked at each other, then quickly back at the doctor. We both said there was no decision to be made. This is our child no matter what. The next several months were filled with many prayers, many unknown answers, and many sleepless nights. We were able to see Juliana grow and continue to develop by way of weekly ultrasounds, starting at about 30 weeks. At 38 weeks she was finally ready to meet the world. The hospital staff did a fantastic job preparing for the unknown. Juliana as a newbornDuring her delivery the operating room where she was born was full of nurses, obstetricians, neonatologists, respiratory therapists, anesthesiologists, and many more. Juliana's birth was a very traumatic delivery and I was hemorrhaging afterward. While one team worked to save my life, another team worked to save Juliana's. I was briefly able to get a glimpse of her as they rushed her past to the NICU, where she spent the first 16 days of her life. She had her first surgery when she five days old, to insert a trach tube and a feeding tube. Through much research on Thom's part, while I was recovering in the hospital, we found Dr. Wolfe in Miami. He is a world renowned craniofacial surgeon and came highly recommended from different surgeons around the country. We traveled to Miami in late March and Juliana began her craniofacial surgeries with Dr. Wolfe on April 1. Juliana and DadThe first 18 months of her life were very difficult on all of us. She had many respiratory infections (RSV and pneumonia). We also continued to push ahead with her surgeries. With most of the surgeries came complications during recovery. As parents we heard some of the scariest words of our lives: "She may not survive this." We heard these words more than one time. And each time we went to our knees and prayed. Each time God had a bigger plan for Juliana. Juliana has endured 21 trips to the operating room. She has had everything from simple procedures, like inserting a Port-A-Cath, to major intracranial operations. Juliana will eventually make her own decisions about continuing on with surgeries. Juliana in schoolAt this point we are not doing cosmetic surgery. We are doing surgeries which will enable her to function without a trach or feeding tube. Our ultimate goal for Juliana is for her to be happy with who she is. She will be able to achieve any goal which she sets for herself or any obstacles put before her. We have no doubt that she can achieve this because she is so incredibly intelligent. —Tami Wetmore, Juliana's Mother

Mementoes of a crueller age: Bizarre photographic archive shows how the 19th century was obsessed with physical deformities. These are the bizarre photographs from a 19th century freak show where members of the public would pay to witness people with physical deformities. During a visit to a freak show, many offered guests the chance to buy 'carte de visites', featuring the image of their favourite attraction. Among those featured in The Thanatos Archive is 'The Chinese Dwarf' who was only 28in tall. Another attraction was Laloo, who was born with a parasitic twin brother. Some of the more extreme shows even featured dead babies.

Please do not forget to visit the site http://scribol.com ************************************************************** Sometimes the most extraordinary events occur in the humblest of circumstances. Born in 1933, Lina Medina was brought up in the Peruvian village of Ticrapo. The town, perched at an altitude of more than 7,000 feet above sea level, was one of Peru’s poorest neighborhoods. Little is known of Lina’s very early years, but it’s easy to imagine that life in such a rural and impoverished area would have been basic. Apparently, she had eight siblings, and they were all raised by their mother, Victoria Losea, and father, Tiburelo Medina, who was a silversmith. Day-to-day life for the South American family would have probably been pretty uneventful. However, when Lina was five, something happened that would change her life – and her family’s – forever. Not only that, but it would shock the entire world. Concern for Lina started when the little girl began developing a bloated abdomen. Moreover, the swelling didn’t go down; on the contrary, it seemed to get bigger and bigger. Naturally very worried, Lina’s mother and father suspected that their daughter could be suffering from a tumor. But before heading to the hospital, they sought help from a curious source. The family reportedly asked local shamans to see if they could cure Lina of her problem, and the shamans apparently believed that her strange growth could be down to her being possessed. So Lina’s father, Tiburelo, granted permission for them to exorcise his daughter in a bid to remove “the snake under her belly.” Whether or not this “exorcism” actually took place is unknown. If it did, it clearly didn’t work – but what happened next is known to have occurred. With Lina’s ever-growing bump still present, it was time to see some professionals. According to a 1939 article in TIME magazine, one of the shamans was with the Medina family when they finally took the girl to hospital in Pisco, Peru. And apparently, the female shaman begged a Dr. Geraldo Lozada, one of the hospital’s surgeons, to “exorcise” the “possessed” girl himself. Clearly, though, a medical professional like Dr. Lozada was not going to do such a thing. Instead, he did what any regular doctor would do and gave the girl an examination. Yet what he discovered would surely have come as a complete shock. ************************************************************** ►You can support the channel: PATREON https://goo.gl/KtaKrp ►Image credits: Image: via Rare Historical Photos Image: YouTube/Jhordan Muñoz ►web: http://watchjojo.com ► SUBSCRIBE US: https://goo.gl/Z4nZcg ► Follow Us On Google Plus: https://goo.gl/JYf9Rr ► Like us Our Facebook Page: https://goo.gl/C5Rv92 ► Follow On Twitter: https://goo.gl/PZ2U1R ►For more articles visit: http://scribol.com ►Article link: https://goo.gl/Ak6YvP #watchjojo
