Kind of Off-Topic, but...

This is pretty amazing:

"2nd baby is born from dead donor's transplanted womb at Cleveland Clinic"

Most of us are familiar with posthumous organ donation (heck, there's even a checkbox on drivers' licenses), but I daresay that likely includes corneas and kidneys, hearts and lungs, that kind of thing. I've even heard of harvesting sperm from a dying father.

But this one is new to me. And it gets even more interesting:

"It's the second child in the hospital system to be born from a dead donor's transplanted womb." [emphasis added]

Wow - And Mazel tov to Mom!
