Also, on Friday, Jackie made this comment -- would this company be Scamaritan or a real insurance company?

I'm guessing that with Bret's repeated hospitalizations they've got real insurance. No way Samaritan is covering the number of procedures he's had at this point. When I traveled a lot for work I would stay in Residence Inns and if it was in a town with a major hospital, it was common for the people in adjacent rooms to be family of patients undergoing these kinds of long-term treatments. I guess they have some kind of deal with insurers.

You know, I've been puzzled by Rachel and Kressant's abrupt stop to babymaking after a consistent decade each, and it struck me that Ma Smith had 4(?) biological children in her 20s, and then adopted a zillion after that.

Could there be some heriditary condition that makes it harder to concieve or carry a baby after around 30? Rachel and Kressant had their last around then, and for Kressant it's been over 4 years—a 5 year gap if she gets pregnant right now. A strange gap from those families.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the fact that they live in Paraguay. Rachel’s last was not a great birth. And who knows what kind of experience she had in the hospital. I’m not saying the hospitals are bad there. It just might be different from the US. Kressant and Mike seemed to have pretty hard lives the last few years. He’s working all the time. I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t sweet fellowship as much as they used to. Bethany seems to live a pretty nice life and she keeps popping them out regularly.

This. Her IG photos of their homestead are really depressing to see.

It's hard to believe their lives have gotten better in Paraguay.

Jackie and Brett had either a tubal or vasectomy, and reversal wasn't an option or was unsuccessful. It's been too long for that rabbit hole. They had the same issue as the Deckers I do remember that. The Davis family is the one mystery on that front. One daughter and then 3 adopted children much later.

What is Bethany's husband doing for a living? Do we know that? She is till living in Griffin, isn't she? I wonder what happens when she runs into her mother while grocery shopping. Do they talk?

So. Much. Better. Because Paraguay is even more right-wing than their little corner of the US. In particular, they are free to persecute LGBT+ people and there's a nationwide ban on abortions. Life is good when you don't have to worry about your neighbors not sharing your personal beliefs.

Francessca is having a boy. It occurred to me that most of the Mortons had a boy first. Martha, Kennedy and Alyssa are the exceptions. Another idiot gum toting patriarch. Just what the world needs.

Kressant and her kids are currently at a protest against "gender mutilation." Glad to see Tucker Carlson-style hate making its way worldwide. God help any trans kid who might already be growing up in their isolated little Mennonite town, now having to see this nonsense.

Brett apparently got matched with a heart for transplant.  Surgery is tentatively scheduled for tomorrow morning (Saturday) at 6am.  

The heart apparently came from Oklahoma and the doctor will get it using a private jet.  I can not even imagine the cost involved.

I hope it’s the heart of a super liberal atheist.

He’s still trying to guilt his estranged kids into reaching out to him.

No, because in that case a liberal progressive atheist has died. Hopefully it was an anti-choice asshole.

I have such mixed feelings about this. One one hand, I am not God and don't get to pick and choose who dies - nor would I want to be in that position.  And I do marvel that we live in a time that a heart can be transplanted from someone who died in order to save another life.

But on the other hand, I am sure that for everyone who gets a heart, like Brett, many others die while waiting. And that makes me sad to think about...

So much of this. I don't believe there is any place for discrimination on who does or doesn't receive help unless it's a result of proper medical opinion.

I think that what upsets me the most is the suspicion he will be 100% sure the transplant was made possible by God/Jeebus and is a mark of his special favour. Everything Bret does and thinks will from now on will be God-approved because that was who kept him alive. To my very simplistic mind, this kind of goes back to the problem of evil - "Yay God blessed me and kept me alive to do his work." without thinking "Actually God must have arranged for someone else to die to make this happen."

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
