India and Pakistan 2012 human interest and earth changes news
« on: October 15, 2012, 06:14:30 AM »
Yowbarb Note: I just saw this on CNN News this AM.
Malala Yousufzai is on her way to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham England.
A medical transport helicopter arrived in Pakistan this AM local time and she was flown off at  0900. It is a long flight, and she is going to arrive at the hospital within two hours from now. That's about 10:40 EDT. The military, who had been safeguarding her since the shooting, got her safely onto the transport.
Malala, age 14 had been outspoken against the Taliban. She has also been an activist for better treatment of women and girls; the rights of girls to go to school in Moslem countries. Someone from the group shot her in the head as she was boarding her school bus about a day ago.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital specializes in the care of children and is undoubtedly one of the best in the world. Pakistanis in general are outraged at the shooting of the bright young girl and many thousands are protesting what the Taliban did. Link to story, photo, below.

Although there don't seem to be any specific medical updates, it
does appear it could be good news for young Malala...

UK doctors hopeful for Malala Yousafzai

Doctors at the UK hospital where 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai is being treated after a Taliban gun attack say they are hopeful she can recover.

The Pakistani girl, who arrived in Birmingham on Monday, had a bullet removed from her skull last week.

The Taliban said they targeted her for "promoting secularism".

Hospital Medical Director Dr David Rosser said some UK colleagues who had been in Pakistan believed she had "a chance of making a good recovery".

"Clearly it would be inappropriate on every level, not least for her, to put her through all of this if there was no hope of decent recovery," he told reporters shortly before Malala's arrival at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham on Monday.

Specialists were due to spend the next 24 hours assessing her condition and conducting imaging scans of her injuries, he said.

Malala Yousafzai was flown from Pakistan via the United Arab Emirates by air ambulance, almost a week after she and two other schoolgirls were attacked as they returned home from school in Mingora in the Swat Valley.

She became widely known as a campaigner for girls' education in Pakistan as a result of a diary she wrote for BBC Urdu about life under the Taliban, when they banned all girls from attending school.

The gunman who boarded the van in which she was travelling asked for her by name.

Surgeons in the northwestern city of Peshawar removed the bullet that had entered her skull from close to her spinal cord and she was then moved to a military hospital in Rawalpindi for more specialist treatment.


Dr David Rosser: "We do have very extensive experience of this sort of traumatic, bullet-related injury"
Pakistani officials initially insisted she could be treated in her home country, but a military statement said a panel of doctors had recommended she be "shifted abroad to a UK centre which has the capability to provide integrated care to children who have sustained severe injury".

Dr Rosser said that specialists at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham were "in a good position to treat her" because they had 10 years of experience in treating UK military casualties - and her condition was much the same as a "battle casualty from a physiological point of view".

Once Malala recovers sufficiently, it is thought she will need neurological help as well as treatment to repair or replace damaged bones in her skull.

The Taliban have threatened to target her again. She was given tight security for her journey to the UK and officials in Birmingham said they also took security very seriously.

I just finished reading a book called "Veil of Roses"  by Laura Fitzgerald.  It was so good, I could not put it down.  It was about a woman whose parents manage to secure a passport and send her to the US from Iran to find a husband so she could stay in the US and get permanently out of Iran.  Reading it made me realize in spite of all our issues with our government, we have so many freedoms compared to some places in the world, we are so fortunate.  The book looks at life through the eyes of this woman, fresh from the tyranny of the Islamic Republic, and I found my heart racing right along with her's when events happen during her first few weeks in the US and how her fears of innocent events affect her.  I highly recommend this book, it gave me tremendous insight into how these women are treated in Iran.

Malala Yousafzai: Pakistan girl 'strong' - doctors

The medical director of the UK hospital where Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai is being treated has said doctors are "impressed with her strength and resilience".

Dr David Rosser said she was making good progress, but has a long way to go and is not out of the woods yet.

The 14 year-old schoolgirl was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for her campaign for girls' education.

Pakistan's president described it as an attack on "civilised people".

Speaking in Azerbaijan on Tuesday, President Asif Ali Zardari said: "The Taliban attack on the 14-year-old girl, who from the age of 11 was involved in the struggle for education for girls, is an attack on all girls in Pakistan, an attack on education, and on all civilised people."

Toronto Star‎ - 13 hours ago

Schoolgirl activist Malala Yousafzai’s moving her limbs, says doctor

Published on Thursday October 18, 2012
Raphael Satter
The Associated Press


LONDON—A 14-year-old girl shot in the head by the Taliban for promoting female education has been doing better since she was airlifted to England for specialized treatment and has been moving her limbs, a Pakistani official said Wednesday.

Malala’s alleged attacker arrested in 2009

Although it’s difficult to gauge what such an improvement might mean given that the exact nature of Malala Yousufzai’s brain injuries have yet to be made public, one expert said the news was good.

Taliban hit squad sent after Malala

“Any progress is hopeful,” Dr. Jonathan Fellus, chief scientific officer at the New Jersey-based International Brain Research Foundation, said. “This is the natural course of recovery that we would expect.”

‘You will not stop me from learning’

The Pakistani official, who spoke anonymously because he wasn’t cleared to talk on the record about the case, said he had been briefed by doctors and that Malala’s condition was “definitely much better” since she arrived in England on Monday. He added that the girl was moving her limbs, although he didn’t elaborate.

Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, where Malala is being treated, released a statement Wednesday saying Malala was in “stable condition and continued to impress doctors by responding well to her care,” but didn’t go into detail. The hospital’s acting head of communications, Carole Cole, said there would be no further news on the case until Thursday. Malala’s family, which the hospital said was still in Pakistan, could not be reached for comment.

Malala was returning home from school in Pakistan last week when she was targeted by the Taliban for promoting female education and criticizing the militant group’s behaviour when they took over the Swat Valley, where she lived. The attack, in which two of her classmates were also wounded, has horrified many in Pakistan and across the world.

The Taliban have threatened to target Malala again, because she promotes “Western thinking.”

Fellus said in a phone interview that physical abilities were often the first to return in cases of traumatic brain injury, and that didn’t mean that the teen would necessarily make a full recovery.

Still, he said, “the earlier you start to see recovery, the better.”

Sebastian Abbot in Islamabad, Pakistan, contributed to this report.

Malala out of coma, back on her feet: UK hospital
By Web Desk / AFP / Reuters Published: October 19, 2012

BIRMINGHAM: Malala Yousafzai, the schoolgirl shot in the head by the Taliban, has been able to stand with help for the first time, doctors treating her at a British hospital said Friday.
She is also communicating by writing notes, said Doctor Dave Rosser, the medical director at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, central England, where the teenager was taken to from Pakistan on Monday.
Rosser said she was now able to write and appeared to have memory recall despite her brain injuries.
“It’s clear that she’s not out of the woods yet,” Rosser told reporters, saying she had sustained a “very, very grave injury”. But he said she was “doing very well”.
“In fact she was standing with some help for the first time this morning. She’s communicating very freely, writing,” he said.
Rosser said, however, that the teenager was not able to speak because she had undergone a tracheotomy so she could breathe through a tube in her neck, an operation that was performed because her airways had been swollen by the bullet.
Malala was shot on a school bus in the former Taliban stronghold of the Swat valley last week as a punishment for campaigning for the right of girls to an education, in an attack which outraged the world.
“Malala Yousufzai’s condition this morning is comfortable and stable,” the hospital said in a statement.
“Malala’s family remain in Pakistan at this time,” it added.
ITV television reported that the hospital was trying to arrange for her to listen to her father on the telephone, though she is currently unable to talk.
“We know there was some damage to the brain, certainly no physical, no deficit in terms of function,” it quoted a spokesman as saying.
A hospital spokeswoman told AFP Malala was 15, not 14 as previously stated.
The 15-year-old child activist was injured when she was shot in the head by Taliban and is currently under treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
Doctors had earlier said that Malala’s condition was stable and she was comfortable.
A team of doctors from both Queen Elizabeth and Birmingham Children’s Hospital are looking after her.
People the world over prayed for Malala’s recovery.
American actor and former UN goodwill ambassador for refugees Angelina Jolie urged the Nobel Peace Prize awarding committee to give “serious consideration” to “brave” Malala.
Interior Minister Rehman Malik had also announced that the Sitara-e-Shujaat will be awarded to Malala.

Doctor: No significant brain damage in Malala
Editor's note: Fifteen-year-old Malala Yousufzai of Pakistan was shot in the head by the Taliban on October 9 for demanding education for girls. She is receiving treatment at a hospital in England. Following are the latest developments in Malala's recovery.

[Updated 8:08 a.m. ET] Malala Yousufzai’s lead doctor, Dave Rosser, does not believe she has significant brain damage.

[Updated 6:42 a.m. ET] The father of Malala Yousufzai spoke of his joy Friday on being reunited with his daughter for the first time since she was flown to Britain for treatment.

"In the condition when I saw my daughter ... we were hopeful but we did not expect ... that she can talk, that she can see," Ziauddin Yousufzai said.

"I love her and this morning, last night when we met her, there were tears in our eyes and they were out of happiness, out of happiness," he said.

He described his daughter's recovery as a "miracle for us" and became emotional as he told how the family at one point had started to think about making funeral arrangements for her.

He also spoke of how Malala had become an education rights activist at an early age – and in so doing had become an international symbol of courage.

She is not just my daughter, she is the daughter of everyone, she is the sister of everyone, he said, speaking a day after he, his wife and two sons arrived in Birmingham, England, to visit Malala.

[Posted 4:05 a.m. ET] The parents and two brothers of Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousufzai have visited her for the first time in the British hospital where she's being treated, a hospital spokesman said Friday.

Her family visited Thursday evening, hours after they arrived in Birmingham from Pakistan.

Malala has been receiving treatment after the Taliban shot her in the head for her efforts to promote education for girls.

The Government of Pakistan is not, technically an enemy of the Western Nations. Editing myself here: Thre are many indiciduals there who ARE our enemies. (Taliban.) When Malala was shot the military immediately protected her meanwhile getting her the best medical help they had there. The British Government said to send her there for treatment. Her Majesty's Government sent a military transport.
Although it is not a perfect country (radical elements there) it is still a free country so people can leave...
Well, I'm not an expert...here is a link to the wikipedia article...The article below includes info many Moslem Clerics issued a special Moslem condemnation of the men who shot Malala.
Back soon,
Yowbarb

"Offers to treat Yousafzai came from around the world, with several from the United States. One offer came from former US Representative Gabrielle Giffords, who had been through similar treatment after she was shot in the head in 2011. Giffords and her husband, Mark E. Kelly, had gone so far as to line up her neurosurgeon, Dr. Dong Kim, the head of neurosurgery at the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, to travel to Pakistan. Another offer came from the American military hospital at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany, and another from US Senator John Kerry, who has longstanding political ties to Pakistan.[54]
On 15 October, Yousafzai traveled to the United Kingdom for further treatment, approved by both her doctors and family. Her plane landed in Dubai to refuel and then continued to Birmingham where she is being treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, one of the specialities of this hospital being the treatment of military personnel injured in conflict.[55] The decision seemed to make both medical and diplomatic sense. The hospital provided integrated care, and Britain and Pakistan have longstanding ties with a history stretching back to British rule in Pakistan before 1947/"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malala_Yousafzai  Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai (Pashto: ملاله یوسفزۍ‎ Malālah Yūsafzay , born July 12, 1997)[2][4] is a school student and education activist from the town of Mingora in the Swat District of Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. She is known for her education and women's rights activism in the Swat Valley, where the Taliban has at times banned girls from attending school.[5][4] In early 2009, at the age of 11/12, Yousafzai wrote a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC detailing her life under Taliban rule, their attempts to take control of the valley, and her views on promoting education for girls.[11] The following summer, a New York Times documentary[4] was filmed about her life as the Pakistani military intervened in the region, culminating in the Second Battle of Swat.[12] Yousafzai began to rise in prominence, giving interviews in print and on television[13] and taking a position as chairperson of the District Child Assembly Swat.[14] She has since been nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize by Desmond Tutu[15] and has won Pakistan's first National Youth Peace Prize.[5]
On 9 October 2012, Yousafzai was shot in the head and neck in an assassination attempt by Taliban gunmen while returning home on a school bus.[16] In the days immediately following the attack, she remained unconscious and in critical condition,[17] but later her condition improved enough for her to be sent to a hospital in the United Kingdom for intensive rehabilitation. On 12 October a group of 50 Islamic clerics in Pakistan issued a fatwā against those who tried to kill her,[18] and the Taliban reiterated its intent to kill Yousafzai and her father, Ziauddin.[19]
Former British Prime Minister and current UN Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown launched a United Nations petition[20] in Yousafzai's name, using the slogan "I am Malala" and demanding that all children worldwide be in school by the end of 2015. Brown said he would hand the petition to Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari in November.
