Little girl at my door trick or treating, "We have a dinosaur in the car.  Can he have some candy, too?"   :rofl;

What an enterprising courageous little spirit!!! She'll go a long way!!! No fears there!!!  :clap;

Bach was no pioneer; his style was not influenced by any past or contemporary century.
  He was completion and fulfillment in itself, like a meteor which follows its own path.

Those of you who know me well will know that I love it when little kids say things that embarrass their parents... They are particularly good at commenting about 'difference', and I love that...

I meant to tell you about an 'encounter' with a great little man on the tram last Wed... There was a little boy on the tram, about four years old with his mum and his baby brother who was in a buggy (Stroller to my US friends)...

The little boy was eying me up for ages... He looked at me, at the little brother's buggy, and back at me again... This happened three or four times before he piped up in a beautifully loud and clear voice... "Excuse me... Did your Mammy get your buggy in Mothercare, too???"... His poor mother was mortified, and I'm still laughing!!!!... From the mouths of babes, eh???...

Cared for my late mum, Elsie who had Kidney Failure... Darling mum died on July 15th 2014... May her gentle soul rest in peace....

A few years back I was at Mudchute Farm (one of those "inner city" farms that teach kids where our food comes from). I overheard a woman explaining to her child that the animal she was looking at was a goat, how we can get milk from goats, and several other facts about goats. Then when she finished one of the staff turned to her and said "Yes, everything you said about goats is true, but that is a sheep!"

Whoever said "God does not make mistakes" has obviously never seen the complete bog up he made of my kidneys!

My husband prefers to be given EPO thru an injection.
The needle is very tiny and that is what he is use to. The other day at treatment a nurse was about to give him EPO thru his dialysis line when he overheard another nurse say "No! He LIKES to get shots!"  ::) 

Husband has ESRD with Type I Diabetes -Insulin Dependent.
I was his carepartner for home hemodialysis using Nxstage December 2013-July 2016.
He went back to doing in-center July 2016.

EPO is about 1/3 more effective when given by subq injection rather than by IV (i.e., dialysis line)
