After being hit by a car in front of South Hagerstown High School, Emerson - a 6-year-old Weimaraner - needed a miracle to live. He got one. Emerson's miracle was Oxyglobin, an intravenously-delivered fluid for dogs that is made from the hemoglobin in cows' blood and carries life-saving oxygen to organs and cells. Oxyglobin manufacturer Biopure describes Oxyglobin as an oxygen therapeutic. It also has been described as artificial blood. Emerson typically spent a few minutes in the late afternoons running around the fields at South High while waiting for the end of lacrosse practice.

Smoking: A life- and death-changing decision To the editor: If I could change the one thing that has changed my life in so many ways, it would be smoking. I began smoking a little in 1966. I was only 16. Back then you didn't know how much damage smoking could cause. I didn't smoke a lot, but little did I know that I was addicted to tobacco. Through the years I kept smoking. I had a nagging cough, but kept saying I was getting a cold. My husband said if I'd quit smoking, I would stop coughing.

About three years ago, Daniel Wiley was driving his wife, Cindy, to Rockville, Md., on weekdays for hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat a recurring back wound. The Cascade couple made the trip, which took at least 75 minutes, because that's where the closest hyperbaric oxygen chamber was at the time. When Cindy Wiley needed the treatment again in December, she was able to reduce the drive - and discomfort that comes with it - by going to Washington County Hospital in Hagerstown.
