My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Grandpa Update


My Grandpa, Meyer Deutsch, passed peacefully around 4:40 on Friday, February 29, 2007, Adar 1, 24, 5768 on the Jewish Calander. He was 94, with a sharp mind, and lived independently until Jan 12 when he broke the second hip and went to the hospital. He recovered from his first hip surgery exceptionally well. While in rehab (if you can call it that) this time, he developed pressure sores from being immobile. The sores led to infection. His friend Stanley, who stayed with him at Hospice at JFK, said that Grandpa said, "Good Bye, Stanley" as he took his last breath. He knew.

Thank you for sharing that! I didn't know that he said good bye to his friend. It's a great photo. I hope that they are together again.
