My town is finally anticipating our new hospital opening next year. They announced today that the new hospital will have its acute care patient rooms becoming co-ed. A reporter contacted me online to ask to interview me tomorrow regarding why I think this is going to be a difficult policy to enforce (I for one will never stay in a co-ed room). On other sad news, my easy child (jessica, 11) lost her pet rat yesterday. He had been under the weather for a few days but seemed to do better day before yesterday. Then yesterday something was obviously not okay although he wasn't struggling visibly. It was obvious though that he was not roaming around or anything. easy child checked on him and he wasn't breathing. She cried all day and all night. Poor kid. RIP His Highness Sir Linus !!
