  1. Another big consideration for him in qualifying will be assets. He will need to have a healthy savings account so lenders are assured he won’t be over his head should job changes etc. arise. Reserves are an important piece of underwriting.
  2. 24 hours post second Pfizer and I am fine! My arm is less sore than after first shot. First shot made me tired, this has not so I am hopeful! Just wanted to offer this for those who are anxious.🙂
  3. FWIW I was vaccinated last week at another NJ megasite, and if it is the same experience, your son should have no issues. People were permitted to move through the process together if they chose, and the question was only if you had an appointment for the day. Nobody worries about the time you are scheduled. It was a gentle experience throughout, the staff was happy to talk to and reassure those who had questions or were nervous. Hoping it all goes smoothly!
  4. Thanks heavens! Hoping she is able to begin to make the changes that will bring peace of mind for all.
  5. Praying for your precious niece.
  6. New York Public Library has free shipping right now, and you can enter your email for 10 % off. Some beautiful gifts, variety of price ranges. I ordered a few puzzles, and saw a puzzle game called Shuffleface that looked like fun for the right group. The tote bags are perfect for some of my kids, too. http://www.shop.nypl.org
  7. Hooray for good news! Praying for co rubies food news and healing.
  8. Last year bought my MIL all kinds of greeting cards and put them in a basket with stamps. She loves to send cards, so she was happy.
  9. If it is reassuring, my dh has this surgery 3 weeks ago. I had to drop him off and then pick him up the next day. I was not allowed to enter. His recovery has been fairly easy. What I needed to do primarily was keep track of all the medicines and make sure he got them on time. Making sure he had food and drinks, ice packs as needed. Helping him use walker and then cane to walk constantly. At first it was 10 minutes every hour (not through the night). He was able to toilet and shower independently. Incision cover was same as you mentioned, and easily changed after first week. They gave him things to help put on socks, pick up things etc, but he didn’t need them. Doctor did not do a great job communicating with me, but I was able to figure it out from discharge instructions and my own research. hoping your dh has a quick recovery and is soon without pain!
  10. Melatonin has been a life saver for me. I use 3 mg. It is not always successful, but most of the time it lets me sleep through the night. I have no ill effects. I hope you get some rest!!
  11. Many hugs for you. It is unbelievably hard. And the judgment from others peeking through the window, certain they could/would mold different results, is terribly painful. Good mamas don’t all look alike. Because each one has a very different job. You’ve done everything you can. I join you in your prayers for your girl, and for mine, and for all the others who must live life the hardest ways possible.
  12. When he was first found, the article I read stated that the creek he was found in was separated from the lake at the park by screening in the water which meant he could could not have fallen in the lake and ended up where he did. There is fencing between the park and the area of the creek. I want to believe it is a terrible tragedy, but there are definitely questions that need answers.
  13. I am one who did not have kids holding my babies. I wasn't comfortable with it, really didn't see a reason I needed to be. I might do a photo with the little one sitting on the couch with support holding the baby, but that would be my limit. I am sorry you and your dd are disappointed, and I completely understand her desire. I would have wanted to hold the baby at her age, too! But I think unless and until your sister wants it to happen, it should be off the table. I would tell mine "I know baby is cute and you'd like to hold him, but Auntie prefers only adults hold him so we aren't going to pester her. Maybe one day when he is older she will be more comfortable with it." And honestly if my sister had nudged me because I wouldn't let her 6 year old hold my baby, I would have been a hormonal crankpot, but your sister may be of a gentler nature! As far as keeping the kids silent whenever baby is around, that's her issue. Kids are going to make noise. I would certainly expect them not to yell and startle the baby, but if she wants complete silence, she can't have the baby around other kids.
  14. Can you just tell him it contains a lot of things you object to, coupled with the fact that even many former fans have found it is not really funny anymore? Maybe flip it around and ask him to give you reasons you should allow him to watch something you disagree with when he is 11 and you are in charge. (Not being snarky!) It is going to be hard to convince a kid that something forbidden is not as great as it may be in their heads.
