How Teh Family Is Doing


Since a couple of people have asked... Son #1 is adjusting to his diabetes and I am adjusting to the cost of diabetes supplies. Even with insurance, it's not fun. (But I'm not about to turn into a whining Obamunist and demand that other people be robbed to pay for his health care. We'll make some cuts elsewhere.) Son #2 doesn't have Celiac's disease, he just has extreme gluten intolerance that will probably become Celiac's in the future. And it only cost $700 to find this out. Yea! Son #3 needs a haircut. Hmmm.... shouldn't there be a Government program for that? The people from my church have been just excellent through this. If there's a lesson, it's that it's wise to choose a community and a lifestyle of people who will support you when the chips are down.

thumbs up for walking the talk, though this illness was not anyone's fault.
Hope things get better.

OTOH, if you're going to be taxed through the roof, make the govt. pay every last dime you can make them pay. It's your money they take. Take some back!

Hang in there, V.

Good onya, V. My best friend has extreme Celiac's and a tip, much of the "gluten free" products on the market, aren't. Read the fine print on the labels to find out how much is allowed to be in there and still be credited. Good news, more manufacturers are offering products that are acceptable and the cost is coming down slowly. Another tip, talk to your favorite restaurants about the dietary needs and if you frequent them, they may be willing to take extra steps for you to satisfy requirements. (My friend's biggest problem is cross-contamination from common food prep areas.)

Amen. Especially in the LDS community.

ORA: When Growing Pains jumped the shark - Season 5, Episode 13, where Mike Seaver tries to help young Brundlefly chose the best place to go to college.

This is the Readers Digest Condensed version of the bill, you bonehead, the copy lobbysists hand out to corrupt congressmen to read and vote on. These never contain the bill's real wording.

-OR-

Jeez, boner, you're white and legal and can almost speak English. You've got zero chance of scoring a college loan. So, what's say I help you study this remedial math book and then you go look for a job flipping burgers? OK, from the beginning - one plus one equals...?

-OR-

Hey, Boner what's this paper stuffed in your college orientation book that's signed "Congratulations, Luv Suzi"? Whoa, her pregnancy test results... Oh my gawd, you're gonna be a dad!

V, I read this tip on a trustworthy health Wiki - keep the kid away from celery, he'll never have another problem with celeriac disease. Best to you and yours. [the above dietary advice has not been approved by the FDA but can be used in conjunction with an otherwise balanced healthy diet]

"Look, Boner; Gold isn't really my sister, and I DON'T want to buy a picture of her naked in the shower. YOU on the other hand..."
