If You Could Change Anything About Yourself, What Would It Be?

Just like a woman to do a total makeover that includes changing her blood type.

Demi-Lee Brennan was aged nine and seriously ill with liver failure when she received the transplant, doctors at a top Sydney children's hospital told AFP.

Nine months later it was discovered that she had changed blood types and her immune system had switched over to that of the donor after stem cells from the new liver migrated to her bone marrow.

She is now a healthy 15-year-old, Michael Stormon, a hepatologist treating her, told AFP. Stormon said he had given several presentations on the case around the world and had heard of none like it.

Actually, this is pretty frickin' unbelievable and potentially awesome, with far-reaching implications that I can only really understand once they are given a sinister cast and exploited by Hollywood.
