UCLA doctors successfully ‘vacuum’ 2-foot blood clot out of patient’s heart
First in state to perform minimally invasive alternative to open-heart surgery
Todd Dunlap, 62, arrived at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center’s emergency room on Aug. 8 suffering from shortness of breath, fatigue and extreme cold. When a CT scan revealed a 24-inch clot stretching from his legs into his heart, doctors feared the mass could break loose and lodge in his lungs, blocking oxygen and killing him instantly. 
Dr. John Moriarty gave his patient a choice. Dunlap could have open-heart surgery or undergo a new minimally invasive procedure using a device called AngioVac to vacuum the massive clot out of his heart. The catch? The procedure had never been successfully performed in California.

victory is mine.

My chemistry teacher and I had a bit of a dispute. I had strep throat (or something - a fever that got so high I actually passed out returning from a late night bathroom trip - very nearly giving myself a concussion on the corner of the sink - and then proceeded to lay on the floor shivering until my mom found me. 

So my chemistry professor knows I’ve been sick all week, but she calls me up on Sunday and says I haven’t submitted any work and I’m going to be withdrawn if I don’t. I explained to her, and she kept repeating herself. I say I’ll finish the whole course by Friday (totally doable). She says,

"It’s impossible for you to finish the course this week. There’s no way you could ever do that.”

Not the first time she’s told me I can’t do something. She also accused me of cheating a few weeks ago because I hadn’t turned in “adequate” proof of collaboration on a project (I followed the rubric to the T, but she gave me a crappy grade even after I resubmitted the project to her standards).

All this week, I worked all day every day on chemistry. I stayed up until 2am last night finishing lab report after lab report and organizing my exam notes.

And I finished. the. course.
