Comments / pictures

It was discovered that she had only one lung, the other never having developed, obviously a birth defect, and as she grew, and her body had more blood, the one lung simply could not provide sufficient oxygen to keep the body’s vital organs healthy, for there was also evidence of deterioration in the kidneys.
