      Continued prayers for you and your wife.    This is the Stanley Thermos I bought when I started working construction in 1977. It still keeps coffee hot, longer than the ones you can purchase today. The travel mug is a 20oz Walmart Bubba brand. We’re heading out for our annual trout fishing trip in Flippin, AR. I’ve gone from being the organizer of the trip, to sitting in the back seat with no responsibility other than overwatch of my family. Siblings, son, nieces and nephews.    Hugs from them all,   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Well something is better than nothing. 859 for Federal I don't get why I don't get the full 2000? I'll take what I can get.

      @Mmindy looks like you had too much this morning 
    • Willow
      We arrived at the hospital at 5:30. Took her to prep about 6:10. I got just a few minutes with her about 7:30 between the surgical nurse and the nurse anesthetist. I asked about how long and was told she’d but out of surgery between 1:30 and 2:30. I fell asleep in a chair in the waiting area. Had lunch and here I sit.   Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.

      Well bad news is that if you don't have any taxable income you don't get child tax credit. I'm going to keep doing my research.
    • VickySGV
      I am going to be a downer on this one since I am very wary of the "Hate Crimes Enhancement" features laws.  All crimes that are committed must have an intent proven for the First Degree (highest level), it is often referred to as "malice aforethought".  In law schools the whole concept takes a full semester to fully develop and be understood. (Been there, done that.) As a result, "Hate Crimes" are pretty confusing to juries since it is an amplifier to the already necessary malice of the base crime and there has been historic confusion that if they do not find the evidence of the Hate has been shown, they will then decide the person did not have the intent for the major crime -- I was on such a jury* -- and thus the conviction will not be even for the higher basic crime.    I would much rather the major crime of First Degree Murder in this case be found, and him being given the greatest sentence the prosecutor is looking for on that alone.   *The jury was deadlocked on the whole thing, but while we were deliberating the defendant plead out to the basic major crime which made several of us very relieved.

      You need to consult a different doctor, or maybe more than one to see if there are techniques to preserve the nerve tissue.  Breast reduction surgery has and does keep coming along since there are people seeking it beyond the Trans community for a variety of health reasons.  In any major surgery though there will be some sensation loss during the healing process, but even nerves do try to heal although they take longer than other tissue and if a nerve is cut, other nerves will try to "cover the area" but it will take a while for them to register with your brain as to what part they are covering which is a problem that other gender related surgeries also bring on.

      I remember hearing about this when it happened. It's sad when someone feels it's necessary to commit murder to cover up a relationship that they entered into freely, and apparently enjoyed on some level.
    • MaeBe
      @Willow, I hope all goes well with your wife's surgery!   Coffee #1 almost down, there will be more. I slept poorly last night. My Apple Watch sleep tracker for last night is more spiky than a porcupine; supposedly I was "awake" for over two hours last night.
    • MaeBe
      I'll bet that was a weight of your mind!   I think it would be endearing on your next date, when you get up to excuse yourself to "use the potty". 😁   I hope you have a great day! 💜Mae
    • Ashley0616
      Congratulations on your big step through transition. Just think about if you want any more kids than freeze your sperm to use at a later date. Usually after 6 months of HRT your chances of getting someone pregnant is slim to none. 
    • Ashley0616
      Mental pain I believe takes longer to heal but I guess if it depends if it completely disables them. Mental pain could take years to trust again.
