The Amazing Creation of the Human Body

Have you ever heard of Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome? I had not until yesterday! I went to Children's Hospital in Detroit, MI with a family from our church whose 10-year old daughter went their to determine what may be happening with her heart. Check this out...

Did you know that there are conduction pathways formed while a baby is in the uterus that only exist for a few months SOLELY to allow the heart to form properly? If these pathways stick around past their time, it case cause "misfires" in the heart thus giving someone
Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome.

How cool is it that God has authored the human body to a point where he creates and then de-creates things "just in the nick of time." Another example is when Vitamin K starts producing in a newborn. V-K is used to help with blood coagulation and is currently given to a baby within the first few minutes of their life. This is mainly so that they can perform, on males, the circumcision (Sorry, NOT for the faint of heart!) sometime within the next day or so; BECAUSE the body does not start producing this until around day 7. Quess when God designated the body to recieve it first cut? Day 8 -
Genesis 21:4 and Leviticus 12:3 - one day after the body is able to stop bleeding on its own!

God appearently knew what he was AND IS doing. Blessings!
