So, if you had a broken bone, chances are you would be stuck waiting for hours and maybe even days. Open latrines, decomposing food, and unclean water were often present in the field hospitals since doctors and surgeons didn’t understand the concept of germs, yet. These are minié balls. Most patients in field hospitals were shot with one of these. These were soft lead bullets used during battles in the civil war that caused catastrophic damage.
Once the child recovered from the cowpox disease, Jenner then tried to infect the child with smallpox, but the young man proved to be immune. “It seemed that this attempt at vaccination had worked. But Jenner had to work on for two more years before his discovery was considered sufficiently tested by the medical profession to permit widespread introduction.” (Alexander, 2003). Beginning in 1831 and ending in 1835, due to increasing vaccination, smallpox deaths were down to one in a thousand. The year of 1853 deemed obligatory for all children born after the first of August to receive routine immunizations.
After being shot, doctors rushed to the train station and began trying to locate the bullets to remove them.

This caused a spread of germs which later developed into an infection which he finally succumbed to after about a month in the hospital. Critic of Guiteau’s guilt and author of a book about Garfield’s assassination, Candice Millard, blames the doctors by claiming, “If they had just left him alone he almost certainly would have survived” (CBS 1). This is backed up by the fact that the bullets were found to have not hit any vital organs.
"I thought I would die," says Kim Pace who for six months lost more than 30 kilograms, and until then the normal body structure. She was not talking about diet nor of eating disorders - but the fear of stabbing pain on the left side of his face every time he opened his mouth.

“Why don’t you guys stop fighting and start working toward a common goal. People are dying and you’re standing here shouting half-ass insults,” stated a witty lab assistant. The two men lowered their heads and shifted to opposite sides of the room to resume their work. Over the next three weeks both scientists threw themselves into their work but just could not crack the genetic code which held the key to the cure of the virus. Although they spent almost as much time fighting each other than actually working together, they found a few rare moments where they created fast-acting treatments that countered some of the lesser symptoms of the Fire Virus.
They can also affect internal organs. The disease rarely attacks adults due to the fact that it is primarily a childhood disease. The case in the book detailed a case in which a 42 year old man came down with chicken pox. He had been admitted to another hospital and sent home before Dr. Nagami got to see him. He had not been treated with antiviral medicine in his previous

I had a BMI of 37 going into my freshman year of college and my physician warned me numerous times to change my lifestyle. I dismissed their warnings with youthful ignorance. However, there I was laboring away on that treadmill, with only one response to those thoughts begging me to quit, “This pain is nothing compared to how you felt that day.” My dad was never out of shape, but he also wasn’t as healthy as his physician asked him to be. That fact did nothing to stop the heart attack he suffered months before my freshman year at Iowa. There laid my dad, unconscious with tubes protruding
