Teresa’s Story Starter Challenge today is:
Today’s prompt: “I never thought that was possible.”
The world of modern medicine continues to reach new horizons. In the beginning, if a person lost a leg, gangrene was likely to set in and soon after the patient would die. If the patient survived, they would ambulate with crutches, a peg for a leg, or be confined to a rolling chair. As time went on, more realistic-looking prosthetics were developed. As biomedical engineering advanced, high tensile steel flippers put athletes back into the game.
Imagine my surprise when I learned that a medical miracle has been achieved and is being turned loose into the public. With genetic manipulation, humans are now able to grow back their missing limbs. I never thought that was — or would ever be – possible.
