Full article here. This lady will be sorely missed, by so, so many people.

Also, there's an archive of a radio programme from KQED, San Francisco's NPR station, concerning the current status of the debate over circumcision. I haven't listened to much of it, yet, but it sounds interesting. The two guests are Ed Schoen, author of Circumcision: Timely Information For Parents And Professionals From America's #1 Expert On Circumcision, and Ronald Goldman, executive director of the Circumcision Resource Center, and author of Circumcision: The Hidden Trauma and Circumcision, A Jewish Perspective.

I've never read any of these books (Darn my fiction addiction. :/ Must stop reading about fake people for a while), but I'll most likely get to one of them sometime soon. Anyway, this program sounds like it will be interesting no matter what side of the circ fence you're on.

In other news, songdog has posted a music lyric meme. Go, guess! Some of these are hard. robinhoo, you need to friend songdog. I can vouch for her; I've known her since 1961. *g*

In still other news, I think Adderall XR is affecting my appetite. I got a bowl of soup and a tuna sandwich on homemade multigrain bread from Julia's for lunch, and I could only eat half the sandwich. And I haven't taken any Adderall since yesterday (evening shift, y0, I'm taking it at three now). Hmm. This is not necessarily a BAD thing, btw. I have jeans that need to fit better.

ETA: I might want to put an actual link to the circ program. *thwaps self* You can find it here.

My little guy lost 7 pounds in one month on Adderal XR. Not good for an eight year old, although he was extremely productive. We switched him to Concerta, which is not much better for appetite, and I don't think much better for his attention either.

Maybe I should start taking the Adderall...

Oy, I feel like the Pharmacist on the early '80's show Friday's. He used to walk around saying "TAKE A PILL!"

My son takes Adderall XR, and his neurologist advised opening up the capsules and pouring off half on the weekends, to give him a little better appetite. That has helped quite a bit, although he is still a skinny boy, despite eating a big jar of peanut butter a week by himself, and gallons of milk! Well, he's almost 14, that's normal!

OMG, another ADDMOM! *clings*
My whole lj post history this year so far has pretty much been about my boys (yes 2) and their drugs.

Son#1 is 15, and he's the lesser of the two evils atm; little guy is 8, and I just can't seem to find the right stuff for him.

The Adderall is working pretty well for me, actually. I like the XR better than the short-acting. As for lack of appetite, I need to lose somewhere around 30 pounds, so it's not to worry. I DO want to have good nutrition though, and I think it's actually better since I'm not craving cream sauces and the like.

I wish *I* could get Adderal. :) If it was half as helpful to me as it is to Mike, man! But I have to settle for caffeine....

So, guess where I'm going Sunday? To work a booth at a baby fair. Why, what kind of booth, you ask?

One run by the Atlanta Circumcision Information Center. :)

Go you! I'll have to see if RI has anything like that. I'm at work tonight, btw, which is why you don't see me. Evening shift, whee!
