  • The other battle of the bulge - trying to pack on pounds

    The Hubby claims I'm obsessed with scales. Digital scales and mechanical ones. Scales you find at Publix and the fancy physician scales with the height rod. He's got a point. I can't pass by a scale, whether it's in the gym or at the mall, without...
  • Hope and faith in the small victories

    When the night turned darkest, I did not doubt. When there seemed to be no hope, I refused to lose faith. Against the odds, against predictions and prognoses, my husband survived the most serious medical challenge of his life. I always believed he would....
  • Finding structure, comfort in routine

    This week, hungering for normalcy, I've returned to my customary schedule. Sort of. Up at 5 a.m., I walk the dog, feed the cat and off to the gym I go. Upon my return home, I do what I always do in the fashion I've grown accustomed to. This makes me feel...

  • A different way to satisfy an appetite

    If the Food Network is hunting for its No. 1 fan, I suggest executives stop at my house to interview The Hubby. He watches more of its programs than anything else on TV, including reruns of our mutual fave, "NCIS," and the endless stream of fishing...
  • Caregiving's a marathon

    Caregiving is exhausting. Grueling. Draining. Wearing. Simply strenuous. There's no other way, no other declarative sentence, to explain it. I, who have long tried to channel the Energizer Bunny, collapse in bed every night, bone-weary but mind racing. I...
  • Keep your grip and your smile

    One of the duties of a caregiver turns out to be a task no one ever mentioned to me, not even in passing. Call it, for the lack of a better term, the oral progress report. When you live with a person recovering from a serious illness, you're not only...

    Think twice before buying breast milk online: study
    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Most of the breast milk sold over the Internet is contaminated with bacteria, a new study suggests. Researchers tested 101 milk samples they bought on milk sharing websites. They found that almost three quarters probably...
  • Why doctors fire patients: The great vaccine debate

    A recent headline in the Wall Street Journal noted, "More doctors dismissing patients who refuse vaccines for their children." This story was especially interesting to me, as I now only accept new patients who plan to vaccinate their children. This was...
