I am currently dealing with my own medical blessing. Most of my story already exists here in my posts. I am 33 (edit: opps 34, I forget that sometimes) and living on borrowed time thanks to kidney dialysis treatments 5 times a day, 7 days a week.
 
I really should respond at length here, I will come back and edit this later this morning. (pacific time)

He beat me to this, I was going to mention ya' Frosty.

The only other serious medical condition, if you can call it this, is my friend/co-worker. He is from the Ukraine. When he was about 7, him and his friends we playing baseketball during a strong storm, and a telephone poll feel over into a puddle. A few minutes later (they were still playing, after that), the ball rolled into the puddle. From my understanding, his friends told him to go get the ball. So, he took one step into the puddle, and was electrified. He fell to the ground, unconcious. His friends thought he was dead. They just left him.. they didn't tell anyone. At the moment of impact (foot going into water), the electrical charge went through is foot, into his body, and out is right arm. The arm was vaporized, and was never found.

Its been about 10 or 12 years now, and after many, many, many, many world-wide trips for different surgeons, docters have fixed him up to the best of their abilities. He still is missing his right arm, but that hasn't stopped him from doing the things he loves. At a very slow day of work, me and him occasionally play ping-pong or basketball. He usually wins. Even when it comes to video games, he can play fairly good. Just switch the controlls around a bit, so he can use the one arm, and he can sure own some people in Warhawk or Resistance. He is especially good with racing games. Questions are welcome.
