Some medical resources

Example medical reports (including autopsies).
The anatomy of first aid, one of many interesting-looking links from the now-defunct Virtual Hospital.
Medical information for writers of Sentinel fanfic - their so-called 'department of forensic pathology' has zero information on forensic pathology and contains first aid instead. Otherwise, it seems reasonably good.
Triage - a vital concept in emergency medicine.
EDIT: j_rolande mentioned trauma.org in the comments. Very cool emergency medicine site aimed at professionals. The ER doctor game on that site is educational and explains what you did wrong when you kill people (which you'll probably do, if you're not a doctor).

Catholic Hymn

I have a song. From a book by Charles Todd Quintard, The Confederate Soldier's Manual of Pocket Devotions.

As far as I know, Quintard wrote the hymn; it doesn't state otherwise. There is not listed title; first line is: "I need thee, precious Jesus, for I am full of sin." (At least, that's what it is in the book. In the resouce for which I'm doing this research for, it's "filled with sin.") The song is sung by a very old crazy nun in a play I'm in, who sang it in high school at around 1911, give or take a few years to be sure. Since I am this crazy old nun, and though I know many hymns, I've never heard this one before. Does anyone know it, and if so, do they know of a reference I could get sheet music from, or a recording of the song? I need the tune, now that I've found the lyrics.

Thanks!

Scottish Gaelic

Hey, everyone.

I didn't even know where to start with this one because it depends on accuracy. I've looked it up on Wikipedia but I just have no idea where to start. Does anyone know of a good Scottish Gaelic-English translation site, with the same concept of Babelfish but with more reliable translations? Or is there someone who can translate English sentences to Scottish Gaelic for me?

Right now, the sentence I need translating is:

“Yes, of course! We shall never forget our own language!”

A 16-year-old girl and her little brother are journeying to a far-away country, and as they travel are practicing their English in conversation. The little brother asks if they will still be able to speak Gaelic when they are away from their home country, and the girl replies with the above sentence in Gaelic, to comfort him.

Any help in this department would be most awesome. Thanks in advance!
