Educated and diagnosed

We finished our fourth class this past weekend, learning more about caring for Lil' Genghis, including CPR classes. Do you know when you do CPR you're supposed to compress the chest 1/2 to 1/3 of the way to the floor? Yowza. That part of it was a bit scary, and mom seemed overwhelmed. dad thinks, much like a Springfield M1A with 18 rounds of API-T 7.62mm NATO, it's something that's good to have around but certainly hope you never have to use it. That said, we're getting CPR certificates but not the rifle. Damn. Maybe dad can get it when she's ready to date.

All of that said, we highly highly highly recommend these types of classes. All told, we took classes in childbirthing, breastfeeding, infant care and CPR/safety. We highly highly highly recommend them.

In other news:
Some years ago, America changed its rules so prescription drugs could be directly advertised to consumers. The idea is that a consumer, better educated through the advertising, can better ask the doctor for help. So there's this new drug out there, Avodart, which seems likely to help mom with the problems she's been having lately. Let's take a look:
Frequent urge to urinate
Getting up to urinate two or more times a night
Difficulty emptying your bladder
Urination stops and starts
Urinary symptoms that get in the way of your daily life

According to this, mom really needs to talk to her doctor about an enlarged prostate.

Ain't science great?
