What tragic tragic deaths. I am sorry. :(  

I see what you mean about your methods. :)

 I am very sorry about the loss of your mother and sister.

Thank you.

My mother was forty-six when she succumbed to breast cancer after a six-year battle.

My sister was in a very early stage of cervical cancer. She already had two children (three-year-old girl and one-month old boy) and wasn't planning on having more. The decided course of treatment/prevention was a partial hysterectomy. She came through surgery fine. Hours later, while in a private room, her blood pressure dropped. The nurse acted as if it were no big deal and shut off the alarm from the monitor and elevated my sister's feet. Fifteen minutes later she came back to check on her and found that she was disoriented and barely responsive. An on call doctor and another nurse were called in to assess the situation. They then noticed she had stopped breathing and called a code blue. They worked on her for forty-five minutes and couldn't get her back. The autopsy revealed she had slowly bled-out internally.

My father was killed in an automobile accident when I was two.

Trust me when I say, I hug my family members a little tighter and never leave a room without telling them I love them.  I will never take a single loved one for granted.

Hi, Brandy. Welcome to CafeMom! I smiled about your comment about finding your parenting methods out of the norm and therefore encouraging. :)

Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed it. happy(How cute are these SweetPeas?)


Just an example:

Any data that came from studies any later than the 1960's is considered nonsense by a large chunk of our community.  Choosing to not spank my child makes me a pushover in their eyes. They act like I'm crazy when I sit my child down and we discuss why they shouldn't behave a certain way. Then, once the child understands and promises to not do it again, I allow them to go back to their play. However, these same people are forced to admit, my children are polite and very well-behaved anytime we are in public.

Don't get me wrong they can be a hand-full at times. It's just that I am more lenient with them in our own home, but teach them when and where certain behaviors are appropriate and when and where they are not.

Hello! Welcome! I enjoy reading, watching movies, and having fun. I don't mind cooking but am not very good at it.

I wonder about your symptoms, other than delayed period, the symptoms don't sound like pregnancy. more like acid coming up, or some other health problem.  Of course I am just a mom, not an expert.
