Bailey had a love-hate relationship with those tonsils. After all, they were a part of her body that the good Lord provided her to care for in this mortality. But she hated... I mean despised... those strep infections, sleep apnea and choking on her food because they got in her way. Dr. Mancuso actually recommended that this procedure be done years ago. Years! And though I can think of no pediatric docs that I trust and love more than that Doc Mancuso, we waited in hopes that she would grow into those beasts. I swear that as she grew, so did they! This time another favorite Doc (Davis... Oh so amazing and ever talented and sharply skilled... we so love him... you would too!) recommended that Mancuso take them out. So back to Mancuso we went and again, he invited us to take them out. And we partook! It took the dynamic duo of skilled docs to convince us, but we are absolutely certain that we won't be missing any more daddy/daughter outings because of sick tonsils!
So today I was kicken up dust and trippen' over myself to mash potatoes, pour clear liquids and open Popsicles. And that papa Nate, he couldn't get to the store fast enough to pick up pain killers, more juice, apple sauce and videos. Hallelujah... things are looking bright! Bailey Buns... Consider us "at your service"!
p.s. if I may put a plug in for Dr. Mancuso... Please meet the man. If your kids don't have ENT probs you might pretend that they do just so that you can meet him! When he took "the oath" he meant what he said... and I can't recommend a more professional, kind and intelligent individual than he is. He really broke the mold.

Recently I have been called names by those who like you, as if to make me feel insecure and speechless for not sharing their same ideas. Surely you have empathy for that, since you are called names every day. As for me, however, name calling and insulting fuels my fire. I hope my children will have the same passion for standing up in their beliefs as I do... and even more, it is my hope and prayer that they will have the freedom to do so. I don't wish to insult your intelligence by name calling because I see it pointless. Further, my parents instilled in me an image of divinity and dignity that I think is desecrated by name calling. Because of that, I assure you that if my opinion remains only mine than I am still willing to stand alone. I'm sure that you and I do share something in common; our determination to fight for what we believe... even in the face of those who call names.
However, I do passionately disagree with you on nearly every subject. Some of the HOT ones for me are addressed below.
These are only a small few of my issues with you. It has been noted already that I am "uneducated". And yes sir, I am most uneducated if that means that I don't agree with you. If instead of addressing issues you and your kind call names then it only furthers my thoughts that I am right! I choose to educate myself on the issues which I am most passionate about. I am comfortable admitting that my foundation and beliefs involve God, the Almighty. I educate myself upon his word frequently. Some may view it weak... but when the tempests rise, he doesn't seem too weak. I for one don't only believe your views are un-American (if you use the constitution as your guide) I also find you offensive to religion. I don't trust you. I believe that you lead secret combinations and have too much control allowing you to be most deceitful in a very crafty way. I sure hope that others wont fall into the trap of "studies show" and "scientists have proven" or "the educated believe" etc. and actually go to those studies and proven facts and educate themselves on what is happening with the change that you promised us.
Good day... Mr. Obama Sir,
