S like SMILE : ” expression of the face with the corners of the mouth turned up, showing amusement, happiness….”

when a child smiles is so overwhelming…a moment of grace. At the hospital, I have seen kids smile when they play, when they joke, when they are receiving factor replacement therapy even when they are in pain.

SMILING IS SPONTANEOUS BUT CAN ALSO BE LEARNED…. we can learn to be more lovable. :)

S como SANGUE: ” líquido vermelho que flui ( e coagula) no corpo de seres humanos e muitos outros seres vivos…”

Aqui vemos uma veia que abriu-se porque machucou, aí sangra. As plaquetas tampam o buraco (isto ja resolve o sangramento em caso de raspão, machucado pequenos), aí vem a rede de fibrina ( coágulo ) que resolve definitivamente o sangramento.

Quem faz a rede é a ação em conjunto de mais de 12 fatores da coagulação+ a própria parede do vaso sanguíneo+ Calcio+ as plaquetas+ proteína Von Willebrand+ muitos outros detalhes complexos!!

o SANGUE é sim VERMELHO e é aparentemente LIQUIDO mas ele está repleto de células como um mar cheio DE VIDA!!
