I read an article recently about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and how six million children have been diagnosed with this condition and one million of those six million have also been classified as having Sluggish Cognitive Tempo or SCT (two million children).They report lethargy, day dreaming, and slow mental processing.

My husband was greatly distressed this last Sunday regarding an injury our grandson suffered while in our care. It was most innocent and truly a freak accident.

...I had refused. Yep! I was NOT going to have a dog at our home, that's all there was to it.

It was about 19 years ago, and our two sons had been hounding me (no pun intended) to get a puppy. No thanks...I had grown up with a menagerie and had had my fill.

Oh yes, they were going to do EVERYTHING and I wouldn't have to worry about a thing...they were willing to make sure the beast was fed, bathed, potty-trained, walked, and generally cared for. You know the drill. Nope-not interested.

Change in any industry is actually a sign of a dynamic and successful company. It's a "good thing" to make adjustments when needed, and it's best when creating a high threshold bar to institute a change. Consistency is also crucial in an attempt to foster the right balance.

...that's the reported percent of surveyed Americans admitting they don't follow the treatment plan from their doctors. When healthcare workers were asked if they felt the patients were compliant, 95% felt they were not.

I guess if this whole healthcare reform effort is going to work, somehow, there has to be more amenability and cooperation by patients to "follow orders" and patient/healthcare provider alignment. Sounds relatively simple, right? On paper it looks great and is an intelligent plan (if humans weren't involved-blah!).

...what do ya think of when you see the word? Delicacy, expensive, rare, and special occasions, right? Would you have thought of the word "morgue"? What?!?

Yep, apparently in St. Petersburg, Russia, local law enforcement agents found about 385 pounds of the stuff stored in a refrigerated space where cadavers are also housed...OMG!!!

Allegations are that a morgue employee and a local businessman were in on the caper. Hey, they had good intentions, they told police it was for a hospital employee New Year's Eve celebration...oh, that makes it all better.
