Woman who had her skull in her stomach

A woman had a portion of her skull stored in her stomach for 42 days following brain surgery over the summer. Jamie Hilton, a former Mrs. America pageant contestant, suffered a traumatic head injury after falling about 10 feet from a platform onto rocks in Hells Canyon, Idaho, during a fishing trip with her husband and brother-in-law in June. According to the Deseret News, doctors at the Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center removed about 25 percent of her skull and stored it in her stomach to keep it nourished while her brain healed.
