Medical Journal

It is by reading Barbara's blog that I found this book: http://upalumni.org/medschool/ob-gyn.html

WARNING: This is written by a medical student and it is just horrible.

I think that Barbara says it very well:
It is a blog from a medical student and HORRIBLY painful. Please know this before going there. It made my stomach ache and made me livid all at the same time. And then it is also something I want everyone to read. Every woman. Everywhere.

To end on a better note, I have been following Emily Lynne's blog these last few days. Her aunt-to-be explains the situation here:

My sister is currently in the hospital/bedrest for preterm labor. She's been bedside for 2 weeks now and is finally 31 weeks. She's had her steroid shots and because her amniotic fluid is running low they have decided that next week if the baby hasn't been born, they will have to induce. Hers is a
complicated story.

She is only 20, married young because of the pregnancy, but honestly thought she and her beau had a chance of making a happy home. She moved states to live with him, the whole deal. Well, turns out he had a girlfriend on the side. She left him. But Oklahoma/Texas law does not allow for a divorce to occur until after the baby is
born.


The husband (soon to be ex) has kept everything baby related and the courts will not allow her to go after the items until after the divorce has been settled (months after the baby gets here).


My sister, hospitalized, thought she had more time to save and prepare for the birth of her baby. in a few months she has gone from the dream of a happy home,loving husband, SAHM, etc. to a working mother, trying to pay for the costs of a child andhaving to rebuy all the items that the ex has decided to keep out of spite.

If you go check out the blog, you can see that since she has started to receive help from the Internet she is doing much better. This shows how important the mind's well-being is in order for the body to function properly. I think that it is amazing that the level of her amniotic fluid has been stable ever since she has realized that Emily will have what she needs after all.

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.


Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.


Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
