Missing Michael: A Mother's Story of Love, Epilepsy, and Perseverance (Book) - 1/31/2009 4:48:51 PM
This is a must read for parents facing any difficult health issue with a child, especially epilepsy. The author does a great job of telling a tough story from a mothers perspective, and yet as a reader you gain a lot of insight into the the frustrations of a teenager with epilepsy. One of the great lessons of the book is that being your own advocate can be a long, lonely uphill battle.

Hello Mary, Being the oldest of 9 children I can identify with "children's curiousities" My youngest sister, sniffed a pearl from one of our Mom's broken necklaces, up her nose. A good blow in toilet paper got that out, I once swallowed an open safety pin, don't know why. A neighbor turned me upside down and it came out, thankfully. Another sister had a friend who had just gotten contacts. The girl took one out and showed it to my sister, who was 11 at the time, and found everything to be funny. When the girl held it in her palm for my sister to look at, my sister started to giggle, which soon turned into a snort-giggle, and suddenly the contact lens was sorta sucked up by my sister, never to be found. Our parents were not happy. As for me, I remember giving my 2yrs younger brother a bobby pin and telling him to put it in the wall socket where we were sitting on the floor. Needless to say, he did, and I received my just punishment for this. When you come from a big family, the stories you share about your past lives growing up together are never ending. Thanks for sharing this one. Ever have small change swallowings? Barbara

A story any mother can relate to. Kids certainly keep life interesting don't they? I really enjoy your style Mary. :) Chanti

Not So Hot (Short Story) - 3/6/2009 12:50:48 PM
I just downloaded this story and read it. What a great writing style you have and although I knew that something was coming, the end made me chuckle. As you well know, I can identify with the embarrassment caused. I haven't had this experience yet but I still have time... *groaning at the thought* Thanks for sharing your considerable writing skills. I look forward to reading more. Chanti

Very funny. I raised boys and for some reason they stick things in any holes found.... whether it be on their body...just available!
