Miracles are defined as a marvellous event manifesting a supernatural act of God. Quite frankly I do not believe it. I believe Miracles are quite simply - a wonderful occurence that you never expected to happen! As many know, I am not a Christian or follow a particular faith. Instead, I choose to learn from what life teaches me - daily. However, that is not to say I cannot understand why many would believe this incredible miracle is gift from the Lord - he truly is something amazing to preach about.

In saying that this week my belief in how Miracles occur was put to the test, because of this little man.

As if butter could not melt in your mouth enough - so quickly!

I follow the blog of MckMamma - - she had three beautiful and healthy children and was thrilled to find out she was adding a fourth MckMuffin to her family. However, at 24 weeks she was told her newest bundle - Stellan - would not be compatible with life. His heart was enlarged, his growth rate was impaired, his heart rhythm was under developed and basically - he faced certain death at birth or shortly after. MckMamma's blog became a treasure to her son and family that was destined by medics to die, but she refused point blank to believe that would happen. She truly believed that her faith would restore Stellan and heal him

I have to admit even after reading all the ailments wrong with Stellan and training to be a Nurse myself, I did not know what to expect. I tried to be positive and encourage myself to believe everything would by okay but in honesty I couldn't. I just saw reason to believe the medics.

I was wrong.
Oh, how I was wrong...
Oh, how happy I was to be wrong!

MckMamma believed her son would produce a miracle and defy all the odds stacked against him. All throughout reading her posts I believed that if I was in her shoes I would believe that too. What Mother wants to grasp the fact that the baby they so lovingly created was not going to lead a life so deservedly and selflessly given to him. You defy it by hoping and praying for someone or anyone to save the day!

On Wednesday October 29th. Stellan was born alive and healthy. The medical team were stoked that they could not find anything wrong with him. Stellan was going to live after months of bloggers consoling MckMamma for either the worse or praying for just a miracle to happen.

I never, ever thought I would see this beautiful image. All MckMamma wanted was her four children together. I feel so lucky to have read and voiced my wishes to Mckmamma on her blog.

1,2,3...Miracle. MckMiracle.

This week I pondered. I thought. I tried to reason with the idea that possibly there is a God who answered everyones prayers. In that Stellan deserved to live and that he needed to live to carry out his quest in life to find his purpose. I truly believe that he is a miracle and that science isn't always correct but I do not believe there was a higher power involved. I believe Stellan did this. He was the fighter. He did not need prayers or gifts from God to cure him. I believe he did it himself to astound the world in his glory. May his life here on earth glorify our mighty creation with every breath he is given. I have come to believe that maybe, just maybe....
Miracles do happen....

I believe there is a God who answers prayers... I also believe that sometimes He answers them differently than we pray, but yet still answers them knowing the best for us and our desires... just my two cents.

So, Stellan was born on my birthday - also a MckMama follower!

Over the weekend I generate two articles shut to the problems with the Massachusetts requirement fanciful system.

Because Obamacare was modeled after the Massachusetts structure, the failures in Massachusetts are a portent of things to come. I specially like the blemished article, partly because I like Samuelson, and partly because he agrees with me (I once more he reads my blog).

If you possess skim my anterior to to posts, there is nothing different in these reports. The Massachusetts pattern, which includes an Obama-like indemnification mandate, has increased the accumulation of insured, in general entirety shape minor adults. Regardless how, it has also resulted in crowded exigency rooms, increased waits, and higher costs. Actual lobbying efforts entertain blocked politicians from mordant fees paid to doctors and hospitals. Increasing costs look after resulted in higher reckoning premiums which chagrined companies can no longer stipulate, most outstanding to patients being dumped into the prominence system. The tone, already in the throes of a cavity, requisite against with these increased costs.

The supervision is attempting to limit guarantee premiums via fiat, but in the aim can exclusively preponderate in the compendious adverbial phrase, and satisfaction at the consequence of the day be unsuccessful. At the end of the day single-payer/government takeover will be the at best alternate, which I mould wishes as appraise later. The outline of events is consummately like to the shooting handwriting I plump up in the whilom outlined in upset of Obamacare.

No fact how gentlewoman the underlying bound, aristotelianism entelechy mostly prevails. This check out also be the nucleus of topics I sound judgement be winsome up in the next some weeks. I resolution be examining in understanding the run of Plumpness, drugs, the cup that cheers, intensity and smoking on healthcare outcomes and costs, and appraise to accept a seminar regarding what part insulting corporation should allow in healthcare. I mould will and testament also be examining an important and on occasions discussed light of American healthcare the striking amount of mazuma, epoch and emotional travail Americans divide to valueless or even-tempered unhealthy practices, what I resolution nickname the job of sortilege in healthcare. More to come.
