Comments for Life Blood
Life Blood:12/0 8/04 My father in law had his surgery yesterday. It was a four hour operation but he came out of it well. Because of the extra hour needed, they needed an extra pint of blood so my pint was used. While I have donated blood many times before this is the first time I've actually known the recipient. With the mad cow restrictions (due to living in England) neither of his sons nor my mother in law could donate. Since I haven't been to England, that left me. I'm glad I could help. Why am I feeling so weird?
Calming the Morning Grump:
I've found a way to avoid Sean crying in the morning now when I get him ready for the daily commute. I get him dressed in bed. The changing table is just too cold in the morning. The bed gives him the opportunity to slowly wake up while I get him dressed without that initial shocking cold.
