She's home!

Thanks to all of you for your prayers. We brought my daughter home today. She had the lesser of the two infections, strep, and she is able to take anti-biotics at home now. (The fruit flavored ones)

She's a tough little girl.

Great news!

Tough little girl.....just like Daddy, eh!!!! Hopefully she grows up with your outlook on life and the philosophy and knowledge of the proper viewpoints on how this country should be. Impart, Daniel, impart your views and she will be one of the thousands of kids who grow up to turn this country around in the future.

I am glad your daughter was able to come home. We may have our differences, but I know well from family members that strep can be a tough one on young ones. Here's to her speedy recovery.

Good to hear your daughter is home Daniel. I know how hard it can be to have a child in the hospital. Hopefully her recovery from the TV watching, as well as the infection will be swift.

That is wonderful news, Daniel! May she recover from the residue of the strep quickly. I'm sure that she will, in your loving home. Best to all of you!

My wife and I both appreciate everyone's kind words!

Daniel -- glad to hear your daughter is on the mend. Strep was a nearly annual winter event in my young life and on two occasions it nearly kept me from seeing adolescence when it developed once into scarlet fever and another time, pneumonia.

Universal health care will likely be a central issue in coming elections (the U.S. spends -- privately and publicly -- a higher percentage of its GDP on healthcare than all other industrialized nations). No doubt, you and I will come down on opposite sides of the issue. Nonetheless, I hope that right and left will be able to at least come together long enough to develop a strategy to inculcate our kids (come October, assuming all goes well, I'll be a father) with some core habits that transcend politics: (1) an aversion to mass media consumption (2) consumption of healthy foods (3) a fondness for exercise and physical activity.

Despite the current polarization of our electorate, I would hope that such a campaign is something that we all could come together to support. A response from the right might be that it should be up to parents to inculcate these habits in their children, and government has no place in this realm. I would counter that the power of mass media advertising today is so formidable that it requires the power of the state to counteract such influence.

Ultimately, I'm glad your daughter is well, Daniel, and I hope that your blog will continue towards what I see as a potential forum for honest debate and discussion over critical issues. So long as that forum is maintained, I'll gladly contribute as a minority voice. Should it rather continue as a forum for personal attack, I'll respectfully bow out.

With all respect for difference of honest opinion...

Daniel said...

el razonador, congratulations on fatherhood! We will definitely agree on the tv consumption, healthy eating and and physical activity! (I just call it playing outside)

You clearly are going to take the health of your child seriously and you don't need the government to play know-it-all uncle.

I would hope that more parents would be more like that rather than use the television as a babysitter.

Daniel,

On bringing your little girl home -

YAY!

(I just wanted to do that in blue)

That's really good to hear. My prayers are with her for a complete and speedy recovery.
