Zachary did in fact have an ear infection. Before the dr. came in the room....I used the little lighted doohickey (like my technical speak?) that they use to look in the ears. I wanted to see what was going on in there. All I saw was blood red, swollen flesh with white pussy looking stuff (sorry for the graphic description). I was anxious for her to tell me what she saw when she came in. Pretty much....she told me she saw the same thing.....with the addition of a blister in the ear canal which was why his ear was draining. We walked out with antibiotics and steroid drops for the ears. They appear to be doing their job because he seems to be hearing better and not in as much pain. Thank goodness for modern medicine.
I believe that when the Constitution was first written....it was written with the belief that our freedom of speech would be used with responsibility and respect. They had no way of knowing that 200+ years later there would be Phelps' or people who would use this "right" as a means to destroy the very country that gave them this right. Still and all....if we start taking free speech away from those we don't agree with.....soon none of us will have any rights. Think of the implications of such an act. There would be no social network sights that weren't monitored, controlled and edited by the government. There would be no peaceful protests, no protests at all in fact. No speeches that weren't first okayed by the government. Truth as we know it would be a thing of the past.....and my blog, your blog and anyone elses blog would be banned because after all....they are freedom of expressions. So yeah.....it doesn't seem fair that the Westboro Baptist Church can picket at the funerals of the very men and women who are upholding their rights and ultimately dying for them.....but sadly.....no one ever promised life would be fair.
