This Girl Invented a Teddy Bear With IV Bag To Provide Comfort To Pediatric IV Patients

Ella Casano is a 12-year-old girl who has been receiving intravenous (IV) infusions for ITP since the age of seven. Lately, she came up with this really brilliant idea that would make the experience less scary for other kids- the Medi Teddy. This clever invention is an adorable teddy bear that offers a friendly face to a child while hiding an IV bag in a mesh pouch in the bear's back: ""The cool thing about Medi Teddy is that it belongs to the child and they can bring it to all of their infusions. It's not thrown away or passed on to someone else. You can give it a name (mine is Bailey) and it will be your buddy during the long days at the hospital!", she told Laughing squid.  Ella based the Medi Teddy on her own experience and made our heart expanded. Check out these photos on her Instagram page.

Patients at the University of Rochester Thompson Health hospital are treated to the adorable parade every year, as they wrote in this cute facebook post: "Every year, without fail, a mama duck chooses one of the enclosed courtyards at our M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center to lay her eggs and take care of her babies. She lets us know when she's ready to go by tapping on the glass, and this morning, it was time for this annual rite of spring".

Lion Has Radiation Treatment For Skin Cancer At a Private Human Hospital In Africa

A lion, named Chaos, at Lory Park Zoo and Owl Sanctuary in South Africa, started undergoing cancer treatment this week. The treatment was received at a private hospital in South Africa - and he was smuggled in by the back door to avoid frightening human patients. The 16-year-old lion was unconscious and strapped face down on a trolley as he was brought in to treat lesions on his nose. The 570lb beast was being treated by the five-strong team of radiotherapists and one oncologist in the unusual setting because there are no radiation facilities for animals in South Africa. The photos are truly emotional.

A curious moose wandered into a building at Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage, Alaska, few days ago. According to the Associated Press, the female moose entered the building attached to the hospital just like any human patient — through the lobby doors — and then just stood around taking in the décor … and then eating the decor. The large animal munched on a few of the tropical plants by the doors, reports Anchorage Daily News, but didn't seem to take a shine to the ad-hoc salad bar. After tasting a few of the plants, the moose stood inside for a few more moments before seeing herself out.

This New Animal Hospital In London Is Designed To Minimizes Stress

This animal hospital design by Alma-nac is a new solution in the city of London for all-hour emergency care. The design of The London Animal Hospital (TLAH) boasts all of the regular services offered by a veterinary practice, along with space for surgeries, pets to be isolated, as well as machines and scanners. One of the most distinctive features of the space is the way in which it has been arranged to keep pets calm, specifically by keeping dogs and cats separate. The longstanding rivalry between dogs and cats is playfully referenced with furniture pieces that say "cats only please" and separate routes that lead to back rooms. Although visiting the vet can be a stressful experience for pets, TLAH incorporates areas for play into consultation rooms to encourage pets to stay at ease. Via: Trend Hunter

From Michelle's FB page: "Rideout Memorial Hospital did the sweetest thing for us and allowed us to bring my brother's dog in to "say goodbye" so she'd know why her human never came home. If you knew my brother, he really loved his sweet dog. Don't worry about the dog! We're keeping her! She's part of the family."
