    Today’s comments will come in no particular order
    1. I like the new format; I don’t have to type in my info every time I make a comment–T-Bone, you listening?
    2. My 2 1/2 month old just got her 1st 5 shots in the legs yesterday–she does not have a fever and she is only mildly cranky w/Daddy to-day (she’s up to 25 inches and 13 lbs. Watch out Ellie)
    3. I have a Gin problem–there isn’t any more left in the house.
    4. I’ve missed my shower opportunity to-day.
    5. What the hell do you add to powdered water?
    6. Surreal life my arse, they ought to come to my house.
    7. Goodbury’s rocks! Thanks SJ for the tip.
    8. All politicians are swine.
    9. I am going to strangle each and every one of those damn Wiggles. That feckin’ Potato song has been stuck in my head for weeks. I’m turning Gillian on to Miles Davis and John Coltrane.
    10. I have nothing to say.

    Excuse my ignorance but what are leg cooties? I thought cooties were things that live in your hair.

    leg cooties= the spots on my child’s legs. I spent $10 for a doc to tell me that. Hurray for modern medicine!

    Ha! $10.
    My final bill for our daughter was: $63,000!!!
    (obviously, we didn’t have maternity health ins.)

    THAT is the problem with our country…not Iraq, not even the War on Terror. What an Orwelling joke!

    And, yes…I’ll be making medical payments for the rest of my life.

    I live in the UK now where everything is free and a lot better than in the States. robotnik is right…..the USA is the ONLY developed country in the world without a national health system.

    Lila, you’ve read right. Wife had emergency c-section, and baby spent 5 days in the ICU.
    Total: $63,000 and change.
    I’m moving to London.
    I’ve had it.
    I’ll be paying for my girl for the rest of my life.
    Feckin’ lack of social system.

    Well, I guess this is one of those times when I thank my lucky stars for all that I don’t have. Our annual income qualified us for Medicaid, and we never even saw a bill. Is that just a TX state thing? Honestly though, I would pay $63,000 for John-Malachy in a heartbeat.

    Oh, and to the ladies with the sore boobs- it goes away. Only to return with a vengeance when the teething kicks in. It’s all good though.

    Robotnik - you need to check with the hospital financial services. My BF had a premie baby and they did have health insurance and Medicaid still paid for all of their deducibles.
