There also using 3D printing technology to reconstruct human organs and parts with great success. Kinda like the ear that was grown on that mouses back. :lol: what's next or out there we don't even know about? Star Wars and replicators coming to real life. If they can dream it you can bet someday it will be so. BW :lol: Great-feel good story thanks

Gives so much joy, helping a poor creature. Leash of hope for the mute creatures.
