I'm still here

look for more real content tomorrow.
I was at a continuing education conference today that was somewhat depressing. Basically, one of the things that is fuelling the increased cesarean rate and the idea of patient optional primary cesarean is the idea that women will only have one or two children.
Also, financial pressures in health care make scheduled cesareans more and more appealing to surgeons, administrators, and bean counters. One of the other midwives made a comment about how she was beginning to feel totally obsolete.
There have been other events happening too.
Maybe tomorrow I'll have some concentrated time to write a few things out. and maybe not.
I do respond to email if anyone has any pressing issues.

we replaced the microwave.
then our new stainless steel dishwasher decided to act up.
it was emptied with 2 minutes left in the dry cycle.
it apparently decided that it wasn't going to turn off at the end of the 2 minute period.
the heating element was on for I don't know how long before John smelled something like burning plastic
he opened the dishwasher door to see that the fluid in the rinse agent dispensor was boiling and bubbling over.
he managed to get it to shut off without having to hit the breaker.
After the interior cooled enough to see, we could see that the plastic arm of the bottom water sprayer thingie had melted partially.
John will call the company tomorrow during business hours.
I'm washing dishes by hand until GE decides what to do with their product which is still under warranty.
and we will probably end up filing another report with the Consumer Product's Safety Commission.

so sorry
