    New lion heads for Detroit's Whitney Building are a sign of times

    The lions are coming back. Starting next week, workmen from Ram Construction will begin hauling 26 lion heads up 19 stories to the top of the David Whitney Building on Grand Circus Park. The heads, each 3 feet across, are attached to new cornices, which will restore the ones ripped off in an ill-advised modernization in the 1950s.

    Heal time longer on fingertip crush injuries

    Dear Dr. Roach: Three months ago, I slammed the fingertip of my left index finger in a drawer. The fingertip is still swollen and painful. My doctor sent me for an X-ray, and there is no fracture. I can bend it at the joint, but cannot put pressure on the fingertip. I looked online, and read something that said a fingertip crush injury can take six months to a year to heal, and the swelling may never go away completely.

    Guillian-Barre causes progressive weakness

    Dear Dr. Roach: Three months ago, my daughter, age 50 and a healthy person, was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome. The onset was gradual, beginning with numbness in her hands and feet, and severe pain in her back. After an MRI didn’t reveal any nerve problems in her spine, she was referred to a neurologist and began an IV of immunoglobulin. Her condition improved dramatically, but two weeks ago the symptoms returned and she began a series of IVs again.
