It was HIS idea. Just to be clear.

M asked me to guest blog a recent adventure with medical procedures for the purpose of keeping further “surprise” babies from showing up.  I wish I had video of the whole experience. As his mom put it, it was “comedy gold.”

  1. justin must this post. But it's okay. Because I've read it and laughed over it enough for both of us...ironically, i see the word verification for my comment is "bedding". I adore you RK. Absolutely adore you.

  2. I read it last night and laughed my butt off!! Then I called my husband in to read it, and his response was "Did they knock him out for it???!! I didn't know they knock you out for it!!" I lost it! You're an AWESOME story teller, let me just say!

  3. Randa... That was the BEST story telling ever.. I laughed so hard here at work that the guys came over to ask me what was so funny and most of them know Muncher.. Thank you for that high laughter for my bad week.. I needed that.. Sorry that it was at the expense of Muncher:)


  4. You made my day! Hope Muncher is feeling better by now. But we sure enjoyed a laugh at his expense. :)

  5. That is just the laugh I needed today!! Too funny...

  6. too stinkin' funny! Allan asked what was so funny and i said NOTHING real quick!

  7. That was so hilarious that I laughed until I cried... a LOT! The pictures were great!!!

  8. So hilarious!! Bill and I were laughing the whole time we were reading. Have you considered guesting at a stand-up comedy club? hehe.

  9. Wow what a crazy experience that was! I can't believe the nurse didn't help, or get someone to help you when you were attempting to get him dressed as he was unconscious! Ridiculous! I can't believe they let him leave like that either.

    I sent it to Joe to read and he said "you want me to read this why?" LOL

  10. Oh my gosh, I am so behind in my blog-reading and when I read this I just fell apart laughing...sitting on my front porch for all to hear, tears rolling down my face. That was the funniest story I've heard in ages and I can't believe you even thought to get pictures.
    My nephew's friend had the dr. literally die while he was performing his same procedure and here was the poor guy laying on the table while they had to deal with it. I never heard what ever happened, but can you even imagine?
    Thanks so much for sharing, you are a gifted writer.

Oh happy day, Less question mark!

As a follow up to yesterday's post, I got word today that we will NOT be assigned to the new guy, but we will have an experienced coordinator after all. I feel SO much better. I also learned some other info today that made me think I still have some kinks to work out, so I'll be taking care of that this next week. I'll be SO glad when this transition/IEP stuff is behind us. I want to do the very best I can, but there's part of me who wants to just hide and let it all happen without me.

Streamlining the Blogs

I know it's been forever, and yes, Facebook is much to blame.  For as long as I held out and didn't join, now I see it's simplicity (and it's ability to suck up all my online time!!). BUT--After much pondering, I've decided I'm not giving up on blogging! Sometimes a narrative or story will be better served in a blog format, so I'm combining blogs into one.   Intentional Family  is our new all-in-one blog for the goings on of our family, Braska's progress, celebrations, and challenges, as well as the amazing rise of little sister Kinlee. Other places you could check out if you so choose would be our new business  Larae Photography LLC on Facebook  or on the web at , or the page for my hobbies-gone-busy  Just RK Designs . So if there ARE any blog readers still out there, please come on over to the new place and join up for the ride.  All the old posts from the 3 previous blogs will be there soon so you can catch up if you need to

To add to the fun—a tongue spot

Wow… that was the most negative post I’ve done in a while. sorry about that, but it’s where I am sometimes lately. So very frustrated. It comes and goes. I usually try to hide it because it’s not pretty, but I’m too worn out to sugar-coat today. Because we didn’t have enough fun things to wonder about, I found this on Braska’s tongue this morning.  It’s a fairly large white spot.  It won’t scrape off with a Nuk brush, doesn’t move.  A close-up for your viewing pleasure. Ideas?  I’ve already been Googling and perusing my medical resources (my years in medical practices comes in so handy sometimes) but I don’t find much that matches this. It’s not a tonsillolith—the white spots sometimes seen in and around the throat and tonsils.  It’s much larger than a taste bud or two that’s swollen.  So I’m not sure.  Related to the upper respiratory issues?  Who knows…
