@Eight6Eleven:  Yup, I watched it.I felt so sorry for the little boy Nathaniel. Being teased, being made fun of and other children even PARENTS being afraid of him.

I remember a couple of months ago, CNN had  reported on a full face transplant being done in Texas and I remember they showed his face before the transplant but they wouldn’t show the result. Last night when I saw the pictures I noticed it was the same guy who had it done. And yes he was the first patient to have received a full face transplant in the US.

I read the New Yorker piece a couple of months ago about Dallas (not Daniel). It was fascinating. He’s not the world’s first but the first in the US to get a full face transplant and it looks incredible. It’s astounding how much progress science has made in the few short years since Isabelle Dinoire had the partial transplant.

Yea, I remember reading/seeing videos of Dallas Wiens.  He’s pretty amazing.  I also think it’s amazing how far medicine has advanced that we’re capable of something so complex as transplanting an entire face. It’s remarkable.  The concept sort of gives me the heebie jeebies, though.  I know a lot of people don’t like to look at the “before” images of those who have recieved the transplants, but those never bother me.  The after pictures, do though.  Very peculiar.  Anyway, here’s an article on Dallas that includes before & after pictures towards the bottom: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1368455/Electrocuted-man-gets-face-transplant-My-dream-kiss-daughter-again.html
