PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Flyers stayed hot last week as the schedule begins to work its way back to a normal slate. With wins over the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators sandwiched with a loss to a good Arizona Coyotes team, the Flyers are now 7-1-1 in their last nine games. The Flyers are 17-8-5 with 39 points, marking the third-best start this decade. In 2011-12, they were 20-7-3 after 30 games and 18-7-5 in 2010-11.

Headaches 22 weeks pregnant
LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — The car pulled up to the clinic and she threw herself out before it had fully stopped, running toward the door. She was doubled over holding her stomach, with her other hand on the ground to keep herself from collapsing. Sweat rolled down her forehead and tears clouded her eyes; she could barely see anything except the pavement in front of her. She had never experienced pain like this.“I need to get inside,” she said through gritted teeth to the security guard helping her up and onto a bench. She couldn’t be let in just yet, other people were checking in. “It feels like I’m having 10 periods.”Once the nurse saw her, she knew there wasn’t time for a proper check-in. They rushed her straight past the security check, through the clinic, and into the procedure room; gave her the anesthesia as soon as they could; and called for the doctor. abortion in america: BuzzFeed News looks at stories from the American South … [Read more...] about She Got An Abortion In Arkansas At 21 Weeks.

Researchers in Sweden have canceled a large study of women who had pregnancies lasting longer than 40 weeks - what would typically be considered full-term - after six babies died, local media reported last month. The study, which began in 2016, was stopped in October 2018 after five babies were stillborn and one baby died in the first few days of life. The team wanted to compare the outcomes of babies' and mothers' health in women induced at 41 weeks compared to women at 42 weeks and see if factors such as variations in the women's personalities and demographics, played any role. It is standard in many Swedish hospitals to not induce until 42 weeks, but these babies are at an increased risk of low oxygen supply, being larger than normal, having low blood sugar and stillbirth. 'Our belief is that it would not have been ethically correct to proceed' the researchers told The Guardian. A study led by Sahlgrenska University Hospital in … [Read more...] about ‘It’s like a lottery with human life’: Swedish study on pregnant women who were past their due dates was cancelled after SIX babies died

A man given two years to live when his belly swelled up 'like he was pregnant' has fathered twins after a life-saving liver transplant.

It causes a build-up of blood in the liver, leading the organ to become swollen, tender to touch and painful. He was diagnosed in 2011 and had a shunt inserted in his liver to help drain the fluid - but his condition slowly deteriorated. The engineer was told he needed an immediate liver transplant in 2015, or he would die within 24 months.
