Hey guys! I'm taking Cosette in to get the ultrasound done on her heart this morning. I'm pretty nervous about how things will turn out so please think good thoughts for her today, okay?

Well, I have good news guys! Cosette has a heart murmur, but it's very minor and it's caused by a slight thickening of the heart wall. The cardiologist says this is an age related change only and that it's something that's just starting. If there was a valve involved, it would be a different story because that means that she's leaking blood, but that's not the case. So...since this is such a slight problem, she doesn't need any heart medication at this point. She is going to have to be re-tested next year though.

Whew! I guess this means I can relax now....

* In New York City, people walk past a man dying from a stab wound. One person even stops to take a picture with his cell phone before moving on. No one comes to his aid until it's too late. Seriously? What's the matter with people? (Via [livejournal.com profile] rm)

* And driving while Hispanic becomes a new crime in Arizona. In this case, an Hispanic man born in the United States was detained by police until his wife shows up with his birth certificate. According to the guy's wife, he supposedly answered their questions wrong. I guess saying that your mom lives in Mexico is a big no-no in the state of Arizona now.

Um...Ihre Papiere, bitte? Now really, guys, how many of you keep your birth certificate on you at all times? And how many of you even know where it is? My answers to those questions: I don't keep a copy of my birth certificate on me and I don't know where I've put it. This new law in Arizona is a very bad idea. Once it goes in effect, we're going to see a lot more racial profiling and harassment of people who are in this country legally. (Via [livejournal.com profile] doomsey)

* Armed man spotted at North Carolina airport just as President Obama, Air Force One took off -- Are you kidding me? They only charged him with a misdemeanor? The guy just threatened the president. And he had a gun on him. Slap him with a felony and make an example of him!

Oh...and blame Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Sarah Palin for getting the crazies all worked up. If someone gets killed, it's going to be all their fault. (Story via [livejournal.com profile] ginmar)

* And related news: Facebook page prays for Obama's death -- Trying really hard to not make any nasty remarks about "Christians" or about beating some of them over the head with their good book. (Link via [livejournal.com profile] petzipellepingo)

* When I stepped out of my house for a nice, relaxing hour long-walk this afternoon, I saw my bird feeder lying on the ground. Next to it was a little yellow bat. I suspect my next-door neighbor's kids might have been involved in this. What did they think it was, a piƱata? Talk about the dumbing down of American education! Maybe I should have a little conversation with them that goes something like this, um...hello, kids...this is a...um...bird-feeder for, you know, um...feeding birds?"

Thankfully, it wasn't broken. I picked it up, tied back on the post, and re-filled it with bird-seed. No harm done. Maybe, the next time I see them, I should tell them to be more careful next time because I don't want to have to replace it.

* I'm beat. Time for bed methinks. Night all!
