Doctor Finds Foot In Newborn's Brain

A Colorado doctor found a foot growing inside the brain of a 3-year-old boy.

Dr. Paul Grabb, a pediatric brain surgeon, found the small appendage while performing a life-saving surgery on young Sam Esquibel. He also discovered another foot, hand, thigh and small parts of intestines.

"I've never seen anything like it before," said Grabb. "It looked like the breach delivery of a baby coming out of the brain."

Sam is still recovering from the surgery and is undergoing rehabilitation.

I pray that little Sam is going to have a full recovery and as quick as possible. What a sad story, I pray that God be with his parents as well.

So which was it, a 3 year old or a newborn?

If God intended to be with him or his parents, he wouldn’t have put half a baby inside his brain.

ps: 3 days not 3 years.

Damn doctors, undoing my good works. This child is the Anti-Christ - I put that foot there to stop him destroying the earth. That’s fine, do what you please, I only CREATED YOU.
