    I'm with you there, my sista. I don't talk to mine anymore either, and the periods of my life where I did talk to her were anything but peaceful and cohesive.

    Good news - back from the dentist bearing antibiotics and percocet. I have a root canal scheduled for next week, so all this will soon be over. Plus, the dentist gave me his cell number. I am so special .

    I, too, got sick of my sister's behavior and had to cut her off. A lifetime was enough of dealing with her ugly, sporadic behavior. What I really appreciate is that I have been able to "build" a family from friends where there is not one.

    Rattus,

    Glad to hear that your dental problems are starting to abate!

    Gut,

    Thanks for that information about sisters.
    Since I raised my sister when my Mom died ( my sis is 14 yrs. my junior ) we've always had a pretty special bond. I also had a sister 2 yrs. older than me, but she's been deceased many years. And I have a step sister 1 yr. my junior. We may be thousands of miles apart, but we're always there for each other.
    I feel really bad for all out there who don't have special bonds with their sisters, but glad to see they've forged special relationships with others.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I was going through my checking account statement.
    Fortiunately, I still receive copies of the cancelled checks - something you seldom see from banks nowadays. Well, it's a good thing I get the copies, as I saw right away that there is a fraud check for more than $600!!
    It looks like it may have been done by a bank employee. The check, not one of mine, doesn't even contain the bank's logo - what bank teller would cash a check without seeing a bank logo!!??
    I called the bank - was on hold to reach someone for 45 minutes - finally reached someone from the fraudulent check division who was not at all nice and told me she'd have someone call me in the next 2 days!!
    And, for this, we bailed out these banks!!!

    Check your statements very carefully.

    I check my bank accounts pretty much daily on-line. Once we were on vacation down in FL and I got on and checked and 2 of my checks were cashed fraudulently. One of my daughter's boyfriend at the time found my extra checks. She broke up with him that week (after seeing him on the local news as being wanted!! ) - but he had a couple checks and our plastic bear bank (full of coins) to help him on the run. Took a couple months, but got everything credited back (but the bank and coins).
    even if we had lost it - it would have been worth it to get him out of our life.

    Still took daughter a few more losers before she found her current fiance. Loving, caring, responsible - just a mother's dream come true.

    Schmoo,

    Glad to hear the ex boyfriend has been supplanted by a new fiancee who is more worthy of her.
    The problem I have is that it is NOT even my check. The entire check, itself, is a forged, counterfeit check. That is why I think it was done by a bank employee. I spoke to my bank earlier. The person who called me acted like it was a big deal that they would assume the loss. They told me to go to the police. I am going to go to the police and hope that they can do something to investigate.

    If I remember right, the fact that I filed a police report automatically made it a fraud case - and the bank gave me back the money. I guess they figure you aren't trying to pull something if you get the police involved. Not that they would have done anything (police) if I wasn't as involved as I was.

    Dug out old phone bills, got his parents addresses, etc. Don't mess with MAMA BEAR who knows how to use the internet. I got them enough information that they had to follow up and caught him at one of his cousins - he ran and tried to carjack someone. Spent quite awhile in the government's care.

    No. They already credited my account. They could see very easily that it was NOT 1 of my checks. That is what is so frustrating.
    I have not even gone to the police yet.

    This is simply amazing.
    Colo. mom, baby revived after Christmas Eve birth - Yahoo! News

    DENVER – A Colorado woman says a Christmas miracle brought her and her newborn son back from the brink of death after her heart stopped beating during childbirth and the baby was delivered showing no signs of life.

    "I got a second chance in life," Tracy Hermanstorfer said.

    Hermanstorfer, 33, was being prepped for childbirth at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs Thursday morning. Her 37-year-old husband was by her side when she began to feel sleepy and laid back in her bed.

    "She literally stopped breathing and her heart stopped," her husband, Mike, told The Associated Press. Pandemonium erupted as doctors and nurses tried to revive her with chest compressions and a breathing tube, but nothing worked.

    "I was holding her hand when we realized she was gone," Mike Hermanstorfer said. "My entire life just rolled out."

    Doctors told him, "We're going to take your son out now. We have been unable to revive her and we're going to take your son out," he recalled.

    After the Cesarean section, some of the team rushed his wife to the operating room while the others attended to Coltyn. They handed him to Mike Hermanstorfer, who said the baby was "absolutely lifeless."

    "My legs went out from underneath me," Hermanstorfer said. "I had everything in the world taken from me, and in an hour and a half I had everything given to me."

    The doctors went to work on Coltyn as Hermanstorfer held him, and soon he began to breath.

    "His life began in my hands," Hermanstorfer said. "That's a feeling like none other. Life actually began in the palm of my hands."

    Stephanie Martin, a maternal fetal medicine specialist at the hospital, said Tracy Hermanstorfer's pulse returned even before she was wheeled out of the room and into surgery. She estimates Hermanstorfer had no heartbeat for about four minutes.

    "She had no signs of life. No heartbeat, no blood pressure, she wasn't breathing," said Martin, who had rushed to Hermanstorfer's room to help. "The baby was, it was basically limp, with a very slow heart rate."

    After their stunning recovery, both mother and the baby, named Coltyn, appear healthy with no signs of problems, Martin said.

    She said she cannot explain the mother's cardiac arrest or the recovery.

    "We did a thorough evaluation and can't find anything that explains why this happened," she said.

    Mike Hermanstorfer credits "the hand of God."

    "We are both believers ... but this right here, even a nonbeliever — you explain to me how this happened. There is no other explanation," he said.

    Asked about divine intervention, Martin said, "Wherever I can get the help, I'll take it."
