Change is like the water that our lives are held in and the question becomes do you know how to navigate your boat, yacht or life raft into and through the current of change to the best place possible? When you don navigate the waterways well you can be lost at sea for much too long, your resources and dreams are depleted, you can be reduced to just existing.

Parents deciding whether to take these tests must weigh a number of factors, including their individual risk of fetal abnormalities, possible procedure induced miscarriage, and the consequences of having an affected child. Work is underway to develop a non invasive test, the same information seen by microarray, using a blood sample taken from the mother but is not yet available..
Gammons: Moving out from the shadow of Delgado will obviously help both Giles and Kevin Witt, who signed as a minor league free agent with San Diego. I still believe David Ortiz can be a productive power hitter with enough at bats in Minnesota, but Giles will get a full shot in triple A. Remember, it was a minor league draft selection..
In May 1985 a mammogram cost less than $60.00 and would have resulted in my having minor surgery to deal with a small lump. Delaying the diagnosis until December 1986 raised the cost of the medical care I received both in dollars and the amount of human suffering we faced.
