Neonatal department

Monday, August 20, 2012

I was the nurse caring for a couple's newborn first child, a son, after his cesarean birth. Since the mother was asleep under general anesthesia we took our tiny charge directly to the newborn nursery to introduce him to his daddy. While cuddling his son for the first time, he noticed the baby's ears conspicuously standing out from his head. He expressed his concern that some kids might call his son names like "Dumbo." The pediatrician reassured the new dad that his son was healthy, the ears could be easily corrected later during childhood.

The father still worried about his wife's reaction to those large protruding ears. "She doesn't take things as easily as I do," he worried.

By this time, the new mother was ready to meet her precious son. I placed the tiny bundle in his mother's arms and eased the blanket back so that she could gaze upon her child for the first time.

She took one look at her baby's face and looked to her husband and gasped, "Oh, Honey! Look! He has your ears!"

    I feel like this is a life or death situation for us seniors. If the Supreme Court decides this election like they did before, or if the uninformed vote against their own best interest, and not enough people turn out to vote for the Congressmen who will put their constituents before big money, our goose is cooked. This is not politics, this is survival! I can talk about my greatest fears here, because I understand that it's my blog.
Good luck in all you do.
Gayle

    Coming here was the only place on the internet....or in life, these days, where politics were left out.

    This is what you put on my Spark Page: "Guess it really is scary to me that you didn't hear anything! This is a real crisis that is set to end my medicare and social security! If you don't care about your self and your old folks, nor your children...who do you care for? Your vote will decide whether this country goes to the corporatists or to you and I. Ponder!"

My blogs and my page pretty much tell who I am. What they don't say is that I am an Independent and my thinking is pretty well unbiased by party politics. I do ponder, I do read a lot, and I think for myself. I respect what SP is trying do do on this site and try to be a positive influence on other member's lives.

What I don't do is let a political party tell me what to think. What I don't do is go on a team members Spark Page and put them down. I respect other people's opinions and while I may not agree with them I treat them with respect and civility.

Finally, I feel that blogs of this nature should be where all discussion of the topic should remain as this is the only place SP allows political discussion. As you said to me, Ponder!

You knew that was coming, didn't you?

Saturday, August 18, 2012

A famous lawyer, who had been a public defender for years, dies. He finds himself standing at the back of an enormous queue outside the gates of Heaven. The queue before him is enormous. The number of people who die in a single day appalls him. He can barely see St Peter sitting up on a podium outside the gates with a large book. Every now and then St Peter glances down the queue to see how he is going. Suddenly he catches the eye of the lawyer. He looks very surprised. He jumps down from the podium and comes running along the line until slightly out of breath he arrives beside the lawyer. He embraces him. He pulls him out of the queue and motions for him to come to the front of the queue. Another person questions what is happening and another angel speaks to the person. Word is passed along the queue and the lawyer is surprised, as people start nodding and clapping. He becomes embarrassed by all the attention and asks St Peter why he is getting the special attention.

St Peter stops suddenly and looks concerned.

"You are a lawyer aren't you?'

"Yes" the lawyer replies. "Does this happen to all lawyers in heaven?"

"Oh, no, "Said St Peter. "It's just you are the first one to ever get here."

  *chuckle*

When my daughter was little, she could present such a 'logical' argument that we used to say she'd become a lawyer and the only way she'd be able to save the family honour, would be to work for Amnesty International. Turns out she's more a scientist and will be off to Uni in the Autumn to study Biology.

Breakfast conversation...

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Morty was in his usual place in the morning sitting at the table, reading the paper after breakfast. He came across an article about a beautiful actress that was about to marry a football player who was known primarily for his lack of IQ and common knowledge. He turned to his wife with a look of question on his face. "I'll never understand why the biggest jerks get the most attractive wives."

His wife replied, "Why thank you, dear!"
