Drive Through Mastectomies !

A year ago today I underwent a biopsy for a suspicious lump in my breast. It was a tumor and came out benign much to my relief. It was done as an outpatient procedure. I was put totally under but still was sent home a few hours later groggy and sore. That was bad enough but now insurance companies are advocating 'drive through mastectomies' for women with breast cancer. Making this invasive surgery an out patient procedure. I am outraged! Please, if you care about all the women (and men too!) in your life who might have to go through this please sign this petition doing so, you'll ensure that women who are diagnosed with breast cancer won't have to worry about being forced out of the hospital after undergoing a mastectomy! The Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act of 2005 will guarantee that women and their physicians, not insurance companies, will decide when they are ready to go home. So voice your support now — with your signature. Lifetime will deliver your signature, along with the millions of others, to Congress. Please add your name to the list to help get this legislation passed.

The DaVinci Code

I'm going to go out on a limb here....I read the Davinci Code. Let me rephrase that- I devoured it! I love a book that grabs you from page one and compels you to read it until you get to the end. I enjoyed the book very much. I like a book fact or fiction- the makes you think. Really makes you think. This book does. There are other out there in the same style or genre that have been written recently. The one by Steven Barry is such a book. It's called the Third Secret. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Dan Brown's books.

There have been several programs on the History Channel as well as several books written about breaking 'the code' and such. I find it all fascinating. What it all comes down to is a matter fo faith. Faith is believing even though you can't see it or touch it. So maybe there is a grain of truth in these books. I am enjoying the dialog that has been started about the possibilities of the universe and all the mysteries of faith. Amazing isn't it?
