1. If a healthy teenager got shot in the shoulder, through-and-through (basic 9mm bullet, not shotgun) and got appropriate medical attention within minutes of the incident, approximately how long would it take them to heal, assuming there weren't any complications like infection? How long would they be kept in the hospital? Are their any therapies they would be given?2. Same question as above, but relating to a through-and-through to the thigh instead.3. Same question again, but a non-through-and-through to the abdomin, assuming they got emergency surgery within minutes of the incident and the doctors were able to repair any internal damage from the bullet.
1. At one point, my characters resort to sleeping rough in a warehouse in the middle of winter. They have a baby with them. How low a temperature would be dangerous to the baby? What would happen to the child should that temperature be reached?2. I want to accurately portray mental illness, as referenced in a previous thread I opened. My main character suffers from severe PTSD after he was raped at a party (the aforementioned baby is the result of this). His best friend struggles with Borderline Personality and Obsessive-Compulsive disorders. I've done a lot of research, but anything you have on the subject would be much appreciated.
