It’s that time of year again, but it seems hard to get into the holiday spirit this year.  Life has been crazy, and we haven’t had time to really breathe, let alone prepare for a holiday! It feels like I was just putting together a Halloween costume for my son, and now Christmas is right […]

New York in 1962 could be a glam place or a little rough around the edges. It all depended on if you had a place in the Bronx or an apartment above Carnegie Hall. It was a time when a person could get by on either a pocket full of cash or a pocket to […]

What do most people associate with the major city, New York? Perhaps the classic glamour of Fifth Avenue and chic department stores, or maybe the commercial displays in lights which take form in large volumes, illuminating Times Square. For me, there was always a certain dream land quality to the city, I’d seen numerous films […]

My day started unexpectedly with an emotional bomb. My first patient visit was to be a quick new patient physical. Based in outward appearances, she was a healthy, 40-something-year-old Caucasian woman. I ticked through her notes and vital signs: weight, perfect; blood pressure, to goal; labs, normal. I would be in and out—minimal needs and […]

If you are thinking this is the type of post, Dan P does when he is bored writing about an off-season that is moving slower than a soap opera plot…..you would be right. In putting this list together, there were considerations to both the regular season and post-season performance of these teams. There was also […]

A gym-mad father was paralysed from the nose down by a rare immune disorder believed to have been triggered by a chicken curry.

David Braham, 40, became unwell while watching his son play rugby in Cardiff after the meal and within a matter of days was fighting for his life in an induced coma.

Medics discovered he was suffering from food poisoning which caused the rare autoimmune disorder Guillain-Barré Syndrome.

Psalm 23:4-6 (NKJV) Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall […]

A GYM-MAD dad was paralysed by a rare disorder triggered by a chicken curry. David Braham, 40, was struck down after the dodgy dinner while watching his son play rugby – and in a matter of days was fighting for his life in an induced coma. David was struck down after eating a Chinese chicken curry from a roadside cafe Docs discovered that he was suffering from food poisoning which caused David to develop Guillian-Barré Syndrome, a rare autoimmune disease. The dad-of-two was left paralysed from the face down unable to talk and ended up on a ventilator for four months, unable to breathe on his own. Former driving instructor David, from Bridgend, Wales, said: “I felt fine until I had the chicken curry. “I just picked it up as a quick meal whilst a pupil was taking their test – I’m almost certain that’s what caused it. The dad of two was watching his son playing rugby when he first felt unwell “I didn’t feel quite right. That night I felt a bit dodgy and I got really ill over the weekend. “Before I knew it I was literally locked in my own body. It was absolutely terrifying. It was like being a living hell. I didn’t know if I’d be able to see my kids again and I didn’t think I’d ever be able to walk again.” David, who used to weight train at the gym six days a week started feeling poorly while watching his seven-year-old son play rugby at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea back in April but just thought that it was a “dodgy stomach” caused by the meal from a roadside cafe. But his condition deteriorated and he ended up being rushed to the Princess Wales Hospital four days after. His food poisoning triggered a rare autoimmune disease He was initially treated with antibiotics and sent home after a six-day hospital stay. But the next day a tingling feeling started to spread through his body – which eventually caused complete paralysis. Within 24 hours he “couldn’t move a muscle” and was taken back to hospital – and it was then that medical staff discovered he had been suffering from food poisoning campylobacter which caused the rare Guillian-Barré Syndrome. The serious and rare condition causes the immune system to attack nerve functions and can be triggered by infections including food poisoning. David was placed in an induced coma for four weeks and placed on a ventilator for four months after he lost the ability to breathe on his own. [boxout headline=”Symptoms of Guillain-Barré syndrome”]Guillain-Barré (pronounced ghee-yan bar-ray) syndrome is a very rare and serious condition that affects the nerves. Most people do make a full recovery but it can be fatal and it can leave people with long-term problems. Symptoms start in your feet and hands, before spreading to your arms and legs. Other initial signs include:  numbness pins and needles muscle weakness pain problems with balance and coordination You can die from Guillain-Barré syndrome if it causes blood clots or severe breathing difficulties. One in 20 cases is fatal. [/boxout] Eight months after the Chinese chicken curry nearly cost him his life, he can finally walk on his own. He’s still only able to go back home for short overnight stays before heading back to hospital. David said: “When I woke up out of the coma I had no idea what was going on. I was paralysed and couldn’t feel a thing. “I didn’t see my children for three months whilst I was in intensive care.” After being woken out of the coma in May, he began on the long and slow road to recovery. In September he was transferred from the Llandough Hospital to Rookwood in Cardiff for rehabilitation. He’s been paralysed from the face down for months – he’s now having to relearn how to walk Thanks to daily physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and weekly aquatherapy sessions, he took his first steps in early November. David said: “I had to learn how to wash myself and brush my teeth again. It took me three months to be able to move my legs again. “It was like being a baby and having to learn how to do simple things again. My mind knew how to do everything but my body just wouldn’t respond. “Spending so much time in hospital has been horrible but I’ve got a strong bond with the guys here in rehab. Everyone spurs each other on and pushes each other to go one step further.” [article-rail-topic title=”MORE ON HEALTH” term_id=”13286″ posts_number=”12″ /] He went home for the first time last week and now hopes to spend Christmas Day with his loved ones. “To see my kids open their Christmas presents will be the most special feeling ever. I can’t wait to be a dad again, just to spent time with the kids. It will feel amazing. “I’m over the moon. It feels like there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel.” We pay for your stories!

I started to write my list. What comes natural to you or what were you raised doing? What are your innate skills? I was inspired to start writing my list of skills that are innate or that I naturally developed during childhood, while thinking back to a recent job interview for the position of “Front […]

And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth. Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty (Exodus 34:6-7).  What really is goodness?  Is it as some would say, complete tolerance and acceptance of all […]
