The Girl Who Survived Rabies

The girl who survived rabies is about 15 year old, Jeanna Giese, from Wisconsin in the USA, who survived rabies thanks to an innovative and desperate treatment tried out on her by Dr. Rodney Willougby.

His technique involved putting her into a deep coma allowing her body to begin an antibody response to the disease that let Jeanna gradually regained normal function. Subsequent testing of the same technique did not have such good results.

Rabbi's from a bat aren't deadly. They'll only circumcise you. Rabies however, that will kill you which is why she got the TV show.

This isn't funny.

Why would you post something on FJ that isn't funny?
Wait, you went one step further, you posted something on funnyjunk you knew was not funny, in fact, you know it is not even intended to be funny.

So the logic here is that you went to a website designed for the sake of material that should be rich in comedic value and posted something that is far far away from what the site is intended for.

Keep this **** for some other websites, as beautiful the story may be, it is the wrong place to post it.

Are you telling me that instead of just vaccinating the girl, they waited until the rabies had gotten past the point where it could be treated and then tried some crazy ass coma treatment on her?

I don't get it.
I thought rabies was easily treated since, like, more than a century ago.

I don't understand what's so "innovative" about the treatment. It's a medically induced coma. Doctors do that **** all the time.

I mean as long as you get treatment within ten days of being bitten, or infection you're fine, if what I found on wikipedia is true. It's really just the parents fault for being a couple of ignorant savages and ignoring a bite from a wild animal without taking her to see a doctor. What a couple of morons, surviving rabies is a big deal when you or your parents are ******* stupid.
