Obstetrics and gynaecology - Malcolm Catt a miracle man

Malcolm Catt

Malcolm Catt died on Australia Day after liver
cancer took hold of him suddenly after some
time in remission
He always sat right up the front and sang the
hymns well.
I didn’t know he was a musician. He had his
LMus. A in piano at 15 and played a Mozart
concerto under Sir Eugene Goossens. He
regularly played chamber music and often
performed concerts with the Central Coast
Orchestra. Indeed, he came from a very
musical family. His sister is the Director of
Music at the historic South Brisbane St.
Andrews Anglican Church where she is
overseeing the restoration of their historic
organ. He gave up a musical career to become
a leading obstetrician. However, he was an
organist at the Gosford Uniting Church.
Malcolm’s funeral was held on Wednesday,2nd
February at 10 am, conducted by the Rev. Dr
David Gill and the Rev. Graham Woolnough of
Gosford Uniting Church.
The family requested the presence of the choir
to lead the hymns. The soloist was Matthew Cin
who sang in January at the last service Malcolm
attended which meant so much to him in his
dying days. By request Byron Westbury played
the trumpet.
The fact that the church was packed with
mourners on a working day attests to the high
regard in which this gentle man was held.

* I wanted to share this with you. A local leading obstetrician.
He found my first cancer, it was rare he had never seen 
it before but he acted in an amazing manner. I wanted to 
say doctors are amazing we trust them with our lives. Malcolm
Catt was a very nice man, cancer awful disease. RIP Dr Catt
Sharing this as they are human, we forget that.

"Hard nipples" - areola or nipple skin

Someone once wrote"...when i get really cold, or get goosebumbs all over my body, the whole things really scrunch up, like, my entire areola scrunches itself up into a wrinkled little mound. it looks really weird and ugly, and i haven't ever seen other people's breasts do it. what is wrong with my areola/nipples??" The answer: Well nothing is wrong. This is what my areola does too. It's a normal reaction to the coldness or to irritation / stimulation. The little muscles in the areola do a similar goosebump thing as your other skin can do. People often call this phenomenon "hard nipples". Also note that skin on areola has less feeling or sensation to it than other areas of your body. If the areola was very sensitive, then breastfeeding would probably be quite uncomfortable because the baby pulls and tugs it! The nipples are sensitive but the sensitivity changes with hormonal changes, such as occur at mestrual cycle or pregnancy. Also this varies with ind…

Linda McCartney Breast Cancer

By Alex Tresniowski
With Her Family by Her Side, Linda McCartney's Long and Winding Journey as Mother, Wife, Artist and Crusader Comes to An All-Too-Untimely End     There were 36 phone messages waiting for freelance music writer Danny Fields when he returned to his Manhattan apartment April 19 after a weekend trip. Reporters were calling about the death of his close friend Linda McCartney, who had died two days earlier at age 56 from breast cancer that had spread to her liver. Devastated by what he heard, Fields reached for the phone. "I called Paul right away," says Fields. "I said, 'Oh, Paul,' and his voice cracked for 10 seconds. We both started to cry. But then I couldn't stop, and he was consoling me. He said, 'Wasn't she great? Wasn't she beautiful? Wasn't she smart and together and wonderful and loving?' "

Praising his wife was an occupational as well as an emotional habit for McCartney, 55, who wrote dozens of love song…

Once ovulation and menstruation begin, the maturing of the breasts begins with the formation of secretory glands at the end of the milk ducts. The breasts and duct system continue to grow and mature with the development of many glands and lobules. The rate at which breasts grow varies significantly and is different for each young woman. Breast development occurs in five stages:
Stage One: In preadolescence, the breasts are flat and only the tip of the nipple is raised.Stage Two: Buds appear, breast and nipple are raised, fat tissue begins to form and the areola (dark area of skin that surrounds the nipple) enlarge…
