Can you ever reunite kids separated in a custody battle?

Can you ever reunite kids separated in a custody battle?

Of course, yes: Every family is different but relationships can always be strengthened and renewed.

Is it better to use a separate potty for my child?

Is it better to use a separate potty for my child?

Yes: Yes for several reasons. First - touching the floor is comforting to little ones and alleviates some fears. Two - they can practice while you go and learn and train better. Three - little, portable potties are great when taken in a car - they make training on the go so much easier - who wants to race to find a gross fast food restaurant bathroom? Use the potty in the car and dump when possible. ...Read more

Can you tell me what it's like to have a "separate sesamoid" ?

Usually they develop from a single ossification center. Sometimes they may develop from two or more ossification centers. This is generally asymptomatic, but if painful it should be checked out by the appropriate hand or foot specialist ...Read more

If my dr said he was testing me for both types of herpes, and both test results came back separate, what kind of test was this? Type specific or not?

If my dr said he was testing me for both types of herpes, and both test results came back separate, what kind of test was this? Type specific or not?

See below.: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, you were probably tested for antibodies to Herpes 1 and 2. What were the results? Antibody tests can distinguish between these two types. What else were you tested for? Practice safe sex! ...Read more
