Actos 30mg Pills $252.00

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 menwithbabies

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 I guess in its time, actos 30mg pills $252.00 this was supposed to be a very funny little ad.

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 How times have changed!

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Now I see men with strollers all the time.

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Men may not actually give birth to the babies, actos 30mg pills $252.00 but the men I know are so much more involved in their children’s life than the men of my father’s generation.

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Look around you.

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 There are men pushing baby strollers everywhere you look.

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Taking their babies to the park.

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Toting them around in Snugglies or papoose-like back packs.

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Changing diapers!

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 It’s a wonderful shift in how men are perceived in their role as fathers.

Actos 30mg pills $252.00 So when you’re tempted to think about how good the “good old days” were, actos 30mg pills $252.00 just remember things aren’t too shabby in these “good new days”, actos 30mg pills $252.00 either!

*****

Speaking of having babies (and don’t look at me, actos 30mg pills $252.00 my eggs have gray hair and are using walkers), actos 30mg pills $252.00 fertility is an interest of mine given my older daughter’s capacity to produce one dermoid cyst per day and my younger daughter’s PCOS.

(They must have inherited these genes from their father’s side of the family.)

Add to this my interest in the technology aspect of medicine and it isn’t surprising that I ran into some good stuff over at DocintheMachine. Steven (Palter, actos 30mg pills $252.00 MD) has discovered a new reason for uterine infertility caused by the uterus literally shutting itself down.

Interesting stuff.

But what really makes this amazing is that sometimes you want the uterus to shut down, actos 30mg pills $252.00 especially in cases of abnormal bleeding. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 So, actos 30mg pills $252.00 the same research is being used to (1) work on stopping the reason a uterus will “shut down”” and (2) helping a bleeding uterus to shut down.

Call me a geek, actos 30mg pills $252.00 but if you share the same interest in new medical technology, actos 30mg pills $252.00 pay a visit Steven’s blog.

This is cutting edge research and it’s right here on/in the medical blogosphere!

******************************

Katarina was around 83 years old, actos 30mg pills $252.00 give or take a year or two. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 She suffered from congestive heart failure and so was a frequent visitor to the coronary care unit in my small community hospital.

She was also high-maintenance. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Very. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 High. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Maintenance.

Everything had to be “just so”.

Her daughters were even more high maintainence than Katarina was. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 When they were in the unit they had constant questions and requests (and demands) for the nurse who was taking care of Katarina that day.

No, actos 30mg pills $252.00 that’s not true. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 They had questions, actos 30mg pills $252.00 requests and demands for every nurse in the unit. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Every day. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Every shift.

Being Katarina’s nurse wasn’t easy, actos 30mg pills $252.00 by any stretch of the imagination.

I loved her.

*****

Katarina had immigrated from the “Old Country” after World War II. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 She and her husband had settled in New York and had moved out to California about ten years before we met.

Her husband was a tall, actos 30mg pills $252.00 thin, actos 30mg pills $252.00 stooped gentleman of 88. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 When he came to visit every evening he would always be in a shirt and sport coat. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Shock white hair stood up from his head. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 He ambulated with a halting gait. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 He must have been quite handsome when he was a young man.

He also happened to be stone cold deaf.

Katarina wasn’t much better.

And so, actos 30mg pills $252.00 every night, actos 30mg pills $252.00 the shouting match began.

Oh, actos 30mg pills $252.00 they weren’t angry with each other.

It was how they conversed.

“HUH?” “WHAT?” “I DON’T HEAR YOU SO GOOD!”

“LOOK AT ME WHEN YOU TALK TO ME, actos 30mg pills $252.00 YOU’RE MUMBLING!” “I’M NOT MUMBLING, actos 30mg pills $252.00 YOU’RE NOT LISTENING“.

“TURN DOWN THE TV!” “HOW COME YOU HEAR THE TV BUT YOU CAN’T HEAR ME?”

“STOP SHOUTING!” “WHO IS SHOUTING, actos 30mg pills $252.00 IT IS YOU WHO IS SHOUTING!”

When you remember that back in the old days, actos 30mg pills $252.00 Coronary Care Units were supposed to be an oasis of peace and a “no-stress zone”, actos 30mg pills $252.00 it was enough to drive a unit of nurses to distraction.

Or laughter, actos 30mg pills $252.00 depending on the conversation.

*****

The hospital was like home to Katarina and her husband in more ways than one. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 They would come every day and have dinner in the cafeteria. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Every day.

I once asked Katarina if she actually liked eating in the cafeteria.

“Like?” she repeated. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 “It’s hot food, actos 30mg pills $252.00 it isn’t expensive and I don’t have to cook it. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 What’s not to like?”

When she was admitted, actos 30mg pills $252.00 we would often be ordering a guest tray for her husband. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 They would eat together in her room, actos 30mg pills $252.00 the television blaring “Jeopardy” throughout the department.

*****

One day, actos 30mg pills $252.00 it was suspiciously quiet in Katarina’s room. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Her monitor showed Sinus Rhythm, actos 30mg pills $252.00 the vitals were normal But something made me get up.

What I saw makes me wish I had a camera to this day.

Katrina and her husband were in the bed. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 He must have crawled over the siderail.

They were sitting side-by-side with their hands folded in their laps.

Her head was on his shoulder and his head was resting on top of hers.

“Jeopardy” was blasting on the televsion.

They were sound asleep.

*****

Katarina passed away one day when I was off-duty. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 The heart that had struggled for so long was at peace.

Her husband would come into the cafeteria for dinner. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Alone. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Every day. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 He just ambled slowly, actos 30mg pills $252.00 eyes ahead. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Sometimes I wondered if he even recognized us, actos 30mg pills $252.00 remembered the nurses who took care of his wife for so many years.

One day he stopped coming. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 One of the nurses saw his obituary in the local paper.

*****

Katarina may be gone, actos 30mg pills $252.00 but she never really left. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 Not me, actos 30mg pills $252.00 anyway.

For you see, actos 30mg pills $252.00 in about two weeks I’ll be unpacking my Christmas ornaments and a white Hallmark ornament with the sleigh on it will get a place of honor on my tree.

Katarina gave that ornament to me, actos 30mg pills $252.00 way back in those early days of my career. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 It was my first gift from a patient.

Each year that I place it on the tree, actos 30mg pills $252.00 I think of the character that was Katarina. Actos 30mg pills $252.00 I remember that precious tableau of the elderly couple asleep in the hospital bed; a marriage that had lasted over sixty years.

And I wonder if they have “Jeopardy” in heaven.
