DeeDee and others, Based on Kolar's book, an acute injury happens near JBR death. I'm assuming it was determine based on the evidence of the 'non-healed yet' process in the cells of the injured organ. Means, the injured cells have not all elements to start the healing process because the death occurs too soon and interrupts this process. Here is nice article on the subject of healing after skin injury. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/884594-overview Question: Is it possible that JBR's vaginal injury healing process was delayed due to the fatal head injury (hence body shock, slow blood flow..etc)? I do hope this new thread can be used for MEDICINE/MEDICAL subject posts only. . IMO, it would be great as the future reference for everyone. Thank you!
