Late in the evening of April 30, 1973, I gave birth to a full-term, over 8 lb. baby boy. He was immediately put on a respirator. I gave the okay for a surgery. Only part of one of his lungs was working. The diaphragm hadn't formed enough to separate the compartment for heart and lungs from the one for digestive organs. I gave the okay to have the respirator removed. He died on May 1st. Still hurts.

It's been 37 years since I had to terminate my Son. It was him or both of us, and yes, there are days like today. You don't mourn alone, dear Mother.

On June 19th it will have been 68 years that my Mother passed. She died in labor. I don't know if she had the choice of "it is him or both of us." I wish I knew. I feel bad for both of you...Carl

The Secret On TrumpCare Is Now Out


The Senate Republican healthcare bill is secret no more.

There's just one problem - it's not really a healthcare bill.

Don't let Mitch McConnell fool you.

Contrary to what you might have heard - Senate Republicans DID NOT unveil a healthcare bill yesterday.

They unveiled a tax cut for the rich DISGUISED as a healthcare bill.
