Xiao Wei, of China's Hunan province, recently had his right hand grafted to his ankle for more than a month following an an accident that severed it.

He lost his hand during an accident on the job, but his co-workers were able to retrieve the hand, which doctors said they would be able to reattach.

Just not immediately. In order to keep the hand from dying before they could sew it back where it belongs, doctors grafted it to the man's ankle:

Why was such a bizarre, but effective maneuver yesterday?

"Besides ripping injuries, his arm was also flattened. We had to clear and treat his injuries before taking on the hand reattachment surgery," a doctor said.

Amazingly, doctors came through on their word, and were able to successfully reattach the hand, and he is expected to regain full use of the appendage.

Gisele Bundchen has again sparked debate and discussion over breastfeeding, this time by simply sitting there doing so in a white terry cloth robe.

While being made up and styled for a photo shoot, obviously.

The Brazilian beauty shared Tuesday this somewhat controversial photo of herself breastfeeding daughter Vivian as a beauty squad carried out its duties:

Gisele Bundchen Breastfeeding

"What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep #multitasking #gettingready," Tom Brady's wife captioned the photo.

Nursing her one-year-old as she gets her nails, makeup and hair done by three different people, Gisele also translated the caption into her native Portuguese.

That's taking multitasking to a new level.

First fitness blogger Caroline Berg Eriksen caught internet-flack for being too toned four days after giving birth and showing off her amazing physique.

Now she's under fire for the tiny baby bump she sported at nine months pregnant. 

Caroline Berg Eriksen's Tiny 9 Month Baby Bump

Yes, she really is nine months pregnant in that photo. Yes, that's probably what Kim Kardashian looked like at nine days pregnant.

No, that comment isn't meant to be disparaging to either mother.

There's nothing like home for the holidays, and for one troubled actress, after the events of the past year, it's been a long and difficult time coming.

Amanda Bynes has finished her inpatient treatment and is currently recovering at her parents' Los Angeles home, her mother's attorney confirms.

"Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who's contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda's recovery," says Tamar Arminak.

"Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day."

The 27-year-old had been forcibly hospitalized and held involuntarily at UCLA Medical Center following a bizarre driveway-burning incident in July.

She was eventually moved to a Malibu rehab facility, but had not been free until recently, meaning she spent nearly half of this year receiving treatment.

Beyonce and Jay-Z have pledged to take on a plant-based vegan diet for the next three weeks, the rapper announced on his website, Life + Times.

"Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you've found the way," Jay wrote by way of an introduction.

As of December 3, "I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!" Bey's husband continued.

This began, he said, when a vegan friend "challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought..."

That friend was Marco Borges, an exercise physiologist and founder of 22 Days Nutrition, a vegan, organic, and gluten-free food and lifestyle company.

Norwegian soccer wife and fitness blogger Caroline Berg Eriksen is under fire for sharing a photo of her flat stomach four days after giving birth.

Yes, four days.

Needless to say, the image went viral on Instagram, and many who saw it were not pleased. In a matter of days, Eriksen was the new Maria Kang.

"This is not a selfie. It is an act of war," wrote one Australian blogger in response. "This whole situation has become ludicrous. There is no other word for it."

"The competition for women to give birth and then immediately remove any trace from their their bodies that they ever carried a child is OBSCENE."

Eriksen posted the photo of herself on Instagram, along with the caption, "I feel so empty… 4 days after birth," rapidly igniting the online backlash.

A 10-year old Amish girl named Sarah Hershberger has fled her home, along with her parents, in order to avoid chemotherapy, the family's attorney confirmed to The Associated Press yesterday.

The trio has been engaged in a court battle with a local hospital in Northern Ohio for months after the parents chose to halt medical treatment because they believed it was making their daughter ill.

Amish folks

A state appeals court appointed a guardian to take over medical decisions for Sarah last month, but Maurice Thompson says his clients have left their home because they "don't want Sarah to be taken away."

Physicians at Akron Children's Hospital say Sarah's leukemia is treatable, but that she will pass away if unless she receives professional attention.

A number of parents at a Buffalo, N.Y., school are far from pleased after a pre-kindergarten teacher sent a note home regarding some of her students.

Specifically, her “unclean and unkept” students.

Sharon D. Perry Dunnigan claims the kids' “soiled, stained, or dirty clothes” makes it "difficult for me to be close to them or even want to touch them.”

The note, which called the issue a “health and safety concern” and asked BUILD Academy parents to sign and return, sparked a number of complaints.

The veteran teacher is now barred from sending letters home without school approval, while parents are calling for further disciplinary action against her.

Parent Kimberly Wells is among those against the note and its author:

Nearly one year ago, former Malcolm in the Middle star and current musician Frankie Muniz announced to his Twitter followers he had a mini-stroke.

Monday, he says he suffered a second such incident.

Muniz's stroke came almost exactly a year after the first.

After his previous health scare, Muniz, 27, told GMA that he knew something was really wrong when he lost vision in one eye while riding his motorcycle.

"I couldn't say words. I thought I was saying them! My fiance looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language," he said, calling himself "happy to be alive."

A mini-stroke, or transient ischemic attack, is when no blood flows to the brain for a brief period, but does not cause brain tissue death like a regular stroke.

Symptoms of a mini-stroke may last for up to a day, though they often just last for a couple of hours. Here's wishing Frankie and full and speedy recovery.

Brittany Murphy’s shocking death in 2009 raised many questions. A new toxicology report is likely to raise many more, given the shocking revelations within.

Her father, Angelo Bertolotti, never believed the L.A. County Coroner’s report that listed Brittany Murphy's cause of death as pneumonia and anemia.

Her husband Simon Monjack, 40, also died suspiciously just five months after Murphy died, further raising questions that have never been answered.

No foul play was suspected in either death.

Convinced that she exhibited signs of heavy poisoning, Bertolotti pushed for independent testing on his late daughter's hair, blood and tissue samples.

He reached out to The Carlson Company to conduct independent tests, and was shocked by the results. The lab reports were alarming to say the least:
