    I had a mom withdraw care on her sweet precious 3 month old. I went to the conference and held moms hand while the decision was made, I helped mom give her baby a bath, dress him up, take his pictures, I was a part of her last day with her baby. I was there when they turned off his vent and when he peacefully passed. I loved the mom and the baby, it was a hard day, it felt odd to be involved in such an intimate experience between this mom and her baby. I went home and was just empty, I had nothing to say to anyone. My husband told me to relax, because the baby was in a better place now. I wanted to send my hub to a better place but I didn't, because he tries, he can't help it he was absent the day God passed out emotional intelligence.

    i would presume it is a filter, not done manually....so can not differentiate.......another site i belong to you couldnt use the city name charlotte, because it contained harlot, and was removed.....

    'Tis an auto filter indeed. For the same reason when you're describing purulent drainage using another also-can-be-misconstrued word, it gets filtered out too.

    My hubby was not feeling well so I said I told him I will give him something for it. So I pulled out a needless 10cc Syringe. I walked toward him with the syringe...the horror on his face was priceless.
    Poor thing didn't know it was needless and it's impossible for me to stick em.

    Not my spouse but when we were playing pictionary once one of my sons got "intestines" for his picture, when he was drawing it my younger son (age 6 at the time) goes, "I know what those are, INTESTICLES!!"

    OMG I was dying from laughing so hard.

    My sister in laws mother who is an RN told me when I was pregnant and about a week before giving birth that if I wanted to speed the process up just use a coat hanger to break my own water at HOME!

    I always get a kick out of people asking me for health advice.

    "My ears and my nose have been hurting so bad"
    "yeah, you should see an ear, nose and throat doctor"
    "but how do I know if its bad enough?"
    "is it bad enough to call a doctor for?"
    (in compliance with the thread topic, that was an ex asking me.)
