Happy Valentine's Thorsday!

We've had quite the adventures the last few weeks.  Roweenie Kitty has been visiting for a while, the daughter's complex caught on to their dog so she snuck the kitten out just in time.  (They need to pay all their pet deposits)  

Two weeks ago the older kitties were sick, I thought Princess had caught mange from somewhere outside but it turned out to be just a case of fleas and some serious scratching.  Some meds and and a good bath got her fixed up.  While she was itching I noticed her sneezing a bit as well.  Not long after, The Old Man caught her cold and Thor soon followed.  Old Tex being...well...old, I sent him to the vet.  Unfortunately he didn't come home.  His age had gotten the better of him and we all agreed to let him go peacefully.  I need to go pick up his ashes.  His last few days were spent laying in the sunbeams with his buddy.

Thor kitty recovered with some antibiotics and some steam therapy.  He and the Princess were a bit down for a few days, they knew someone was missing.  Then Ro Ro came to visit and play.  She seemed to pull everyone out of the funk.  I noticed her sneezing a bit yesterday so I made sure to give her some vitamins and keep her little nose clean.  Got meds on standby just in case.  

We have a new farm we'll be fixing up just in time for spring.  The babies will have a different house to explore and enjoy.  I do hope they'll like it.

      Even if meeting their needs is specified women and men both- they're only taught to want missionary, procreating, very vanilla sex though correct? And if so then some people who be getting their needs met but not anyone whose into anything else. I mean there's a large range of creativity sexually speaking that they miss out on if they were potentially interested. I mean I'm not into anything i would consider extremely unusual but I do like to experiment.... it seems like there wouldn't be much room for that 

      Raised in a fundamental culture and actually “vanilla sex” is laughable...we were never taught that sex was only for procreation..but that it was between married people to be enjoyed. Birth control used by almost every couple(and women have careers- not raised fundamental Baptist). The marriage bed was “undefiled” so whatever happened there was “fine”...2 things we were told were wrong were orgies, and pornography. Bringing others into your marriage bed was considered sinful. I’ve attended many lingerie showers were the gifts were risqué and  people do discuss their private lives with friends, I can say “vanilla sex” is not the norm. Whips, edibles, and sex toys are not uncommon. 

      A friend who left the church once said “church girls are freaks once the lights go out”....and honestly about 75 percent of the people I know did not wait till marriage. Most  people have a sex drive and enjoy sex...fundamental Christians are no different.

      "we will automatically find this wisdom and this knowledge of God"

      I wonder if "this wisdom" and "this knowledge" is akin to "this message" and "this place".

      This procedure, this fear, this adoration, this relationship, this opportunity, this chance, this life...

      A Real Relationship with The God of the Universe

      August 24, 2019

      Daily conversation about God is essential. Many verses point out that we need ears to hear…we need to listen, we need conversation, and we need to hear the Truth. This matters. Truth makes all the difference. Truth sets you free; it completely changes your life. Truth is essential in this procedure to obtain this holy fear and this loving adoration of God, and it is vital if we are to teach this relationship to our children.

      This is about a relationship with God, but just the thought of a mortal being and an Immortal Being having the opportunity to build a relationship seems impossible. However, God in His Love allows each of us—a mere man, a mere woman or a mere child—permission to have a relationship with God Almighty. How could we neglect this great opportunity, this essential chance for life on Earth and life for eternity? This life of separating good and evil, starting with gaining a holy fear of God—which is the beginning of wisdom—is the most amazing life.

      The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor. Proverbs 15:33

      Probably a vibrator, aka my best friend. 

      it is and she is my best friend and I love her. 

      I do not love it when my dog eats all the lube and I have to explain it to the vet though.

      OK.  This is as much research as I have time for right now.

      • Drs Hodges and Humphreys are indeed well qualified surgeons.  They are not quacks.
      • They've been developing this implant for "many years."
      • They have been performing this surgery for about 10 years, beginning in South Africa.  It is still not clear how many total patients have had this surgery.
      • They are now in the Caymen Islands to "offer this surgery at affordable rates" to Americans with money.  
      • This discounted price is so they can build up clinical data. 
      • They have not yet even developed or filed a clinical study in the US to apply for FDA approval.  No wonder I couldn't find an application or any clinical trials.
      • I checked a few medical journals without success in finding professional articles authored by them to bolster up their claims.  But I didn't spend much time on that.

      Now I can understand why when you have a spiffy new "medical breakthrough" the FDA process is incredibly onerous.  I can understand the frustration of patients wanting the new technology when it doesn't yet have FDA approval.

      But FDA approval has a purpose.  This surgery's success and the longevity of the implants are not guaranteed at all.  There is an aspect of "you get what you pay for."  Or, in John Shrader's case, you get what someone else has paid for.

      So, as @squiddysquid says, Johnny is a guinea pig.  And if something goes wrong with his implants he may decide these doctors are possessed by Satan.

      Also the lack of professional articles troubles me, but I did not do a long search at all.  This does not count as a "professional" article.  It is a puff piece by Dr Humphreys justifying why they are performing this surgery without FDA approval.  On their glossy site.

      And I do have serious ethical concerns about this overseas "collection of data" at cheap rates.  Mileage may vary on that.

      This is getting more fascinating by the moment!

      This team is amazing, God fearing people that truly care, have amazing skill and knowledge, and are part of my medical miracle.

      Is it possible that Grifter John wrangled free surgery through his World's Worst Missionary™ status?

      I do find this interesting. The main doctor who did Bro Shrader's surgery is interested in minimally invasive surgical procedures, which I truly hope is the wave of the future. 

      A few years ago, I met a guy in his sixties (triathlete) who had a minimally invasive total knee replacement and his recovery was amazingly quick.  The surgery was outpatient and he was back to running in less than two months.  Here's a bio on his surgeon, who pioneered this technique. 

      Hubs is in the midst of recovery from a partial knee replacement, regular style, and I wish we'd had the option for a minimally invasive procedure.  

      Again, I truly hope that John has a positive outcome from this procedure.  I also hope that it renders him sterile, but that's another story.
