More Cardio

Last Thursday morning, I went in for a Cardiac Imaging Stress Test.  Michael stayed home with Scarlett and Lilah, and I actually managed to get some school done with Lilah before my appointment. I was given strict instructions to have nothing to eat for six hours prior to my appointment, and absolutely no caffeine or […]

I had an appointment with a cardiologist this morning.  It probably goes without saying that the last several days have been a time of high anxiety for me, living with this sudden fear that I might drop dead of a heart attack at any second.  And of course, the stress and anxiety of all of […]

Be Still My Heart

Trying to make light of something that I’m really not feeling humorous about. No news, really.  I saw my GP this morning, and he took a whole health history from me.  Asked me all about my dad, seeing that he died of a heart attack at 51.  Asked if I smoke, and I said no, […]

Maybe I’m Dying.

Ahh, I remember the good old days, when my blog was just a humble dumping ground where I would vent and whine.  You know, before I started taking on social issues and trying my darndest to sound credible and not hysterical.

Vaccines: The Credibility Problem

Wait, I’m not done yet. Because I’m a sucker for punishment, I feel compelled to write further on this topic that usually leads to my being virtually tarred and feathered.

Last I wrote, back in December, I was having a lot of reservations about the […]

Vaccines: How Far Are We Going to Take This?

Every time I think I’m done talking about this, I hear or read something else that compels me to say a little more.  I’ve been itching to write about our continued homeschooling adventures, but the vaccine “discussion” seems to be drowning everything else out at the moment. As with many things I write about, I’m […]

Vaccine Wars: Can We All Just Get a Grip, Please?

The recent measles outbreak originating at Disneyland has revved the vaccine debate up once again, and it’s getting uglier than ever.  Why? Because people thrive on fear and fear-mongering, and because people want to believe that they know what’s best for not only themselves, but for everyone else, too.  A lynch mob mentality is taking […]

Let’s Try Tumbling

I wrote a while back about a dance class in which I had enrolled Finn.  In the end, it wasn’t a good fit.  He went for a few weeks, and then we dropped out for a few reasons.  Although it was a class specifically for kids with special needs, I was never completely comfortable with […]
