Kickass Woman Of The Day: Amputee Builds A Prosthetic Leg Entirely Out Of Legos
Christina Stevens is AmputeeOT

In January of this year, occupational therapist Christina Stevens of St. Louis had an awful accident while changing the brakes on her car. She sustained so many “crush” injuries in her foot that she made the difficult decision to get a below-knee amputation.

“What’s really interesting about this whole ordeal is that I’m an occupational therapist. I have done a lot of research and work with amputees and also with wheelchair users and so I think that I have a unique perspective going into this whole thing because I’ve been on both sides of the therapeutic relationship…I think that puts me in a unique situation to perhaps offer some different insights for people who might be going through the same or similar things to me,” said Christina, who goes by the name AmputeeOT, in her introduction video.

Lego found in boy's sinuses

Words I never want to read again: “Last week, doctors found a Lego piece in a ball of fungus in a boy’s nose.” The unlucky child who had a Lego trapped in his sinuses was 6-year-old Isaak Lasson of Salt Lake City. Wait for it … it’s been up in there for three years! The doctor only discovered the foreign object because the kid was having severe sinus problems. Issak doesn’t remember lodging the wheel up his nose, but he remembers sticking other things in his nostrils. “I put some spaghetti up there, but that was a long time ago,” he told the doctor. Well, as long as he’s not doing it anymore. We’re happy that the Lego is out of his nose and that Isaak is feeling much better. [Orlando Sentinal]
