  1. Thank you so much. I had never heard of it until he was diagnosed. And it took a special top pediatric dr in atlanta to diagnose it after millions of scans and tests. It breaks my heart that my first born has to be sick and to know I passed it to him upsets me. I got my blood drawn today to find out what phenotype I am. It makes sense now on my dads side of the family. Alot of lung issues. As well as my fiance side. I have checked out the alpha 1 pages and am apart of groups on fb as well and am getting a lot of support. I to have read all of the stories online about babies with zz and its so sad and scares me. Im on edge until we get the biopsy results back this week. What age were you diagnosed if you dont mind me asking? Thank you!
  2. Wow. I hope things look up for you. I really hope I dont become severely lung or liver affected. Ive had chronic bronchitis since 16. And high liver enzymes since about 19. It would make sense for all of my family history though. Mostly lung issues on my dads side.
  3. ALPHA-1 ANTITRIPSIN DEFIENCY. I am looking for anyone who knows about this rare genetic disease/disorder. My 7 week old son was diagnosed at 2 weeks old. His phenotype is ZZ, He got one bad gene from me and one from his dad meaning we both have it or are carriers. This is the worst phenotype to have from what ive been told. He had a liver biopsy last Monday and we are still waiting on the results. He still has jaundice pretty bad also. I have a lot of information about it, but I would like to connect locally with someone who has this or has a child with it. Most of the forums online or FB are of parents/people from all over the world. Let me know. Thank you.
  4. There was a 3/2 in dallas for rent for 600-650 on hotpads dont know if its still there. My fiance and I are lookin as well but they didnt except pets so I didnt look into it. Try searching hotpads may have to go towards like powder springs or a bit farther out but they are out there. Ive posted before we rented a house on hiram sudie that was plenty big enough and nice for 600. It can be done. Just look harder. :-)
  5. Thank you everyone! I am going to hunt today. Yes cravings suck lol. I hate wanting something so bad it drives me insane. Calling ace hardware now! Eta: I called ACE. And they have them!!! Woohoo im headed there now lol. Im hoping this craving will also help with my spring allergies since I cant take much for it. Im soooo excited I will probably spend like 20$ on them lol. Again thank you all for the tip!
  6. I have tried google. All I find is places to order online. And I dont think I could wait that long to satisfy my craving lol. Im 28 weeks. Ive also been craving spicy buffalo food this whole time and FLORIDA oranges. My poor man got me plenty of oranges but they were all from california and didnt do lol. Then today he comes home from a job in fl and brought me a big bag of em.
  7. Flavored ones. I have been craving these things so bad for the last few days and have no idea where to find them without buying online. I even had my hubby check gas stations and welcome center places on his job in florida and no luck. :-( this preggo mama wants some NOW! Lol. And I tried just spooning some regular honey, nope not the same. Thanks. :-)
  8. Not sure if its the same thing y'all are talking about but I went to Starbucks dont know what time it was close to 5 and saw a Loomis or some type of money truck in the turn laneon 278, Started smoking under the hood and the guys were getting out of the vehichle. Then I went and parked in front of k ohls and saw fire trucks and heard sirens and saw a thick cloud of smoke right by..... I think I was in front of game stop maybe? On 278. Last for about 3 or 4 mins then the smoke was cleared.
  9. Was it in town in front of like Sam's and kohls shopping center area?
  10. Thank you. Luckily our vet called it closed for the day. Hope your pup makes a full recovery!!!
  11. I have not left the house in two days but does anyone know how Morning side dr to 92 to Brownsville rd is? Im coming from Arnold ln. Im suppose to be to work at 7:30 am. Thanks. =)
  12. Mine has 170,000 miles on it due to many emergency trips as well as vacations to swfl. But ive also owned two other Ford's. Both were 95 ford Taurus was my first car when I was 16 and another one three years later. Both of them lasted a year and the transmission went out. I know its not how I drive lol I dont drive my car to the ground and I do the regular oil changes and fluid checks and what not. The second one I had before it went out also had a belt break twice. This ford explorer also needs the entire rear end replaced it makes funny noises when I back up or turn the wheel. The only other car ive owned was a 96 Honda civic. Best car ever! Never had a problem with it. Someone rear ended someone behind me and she hit me and I hit the car in front of me. I cried more so because my car was totalled then my pain from my injuries lol. I plan on going with another honda.
  13. I agree to this. Also ford explorers are money pits. Ive had mine for 5 years (a 2003)and its spent more time in the shop than ive actually driven it. Its currently in the shop getting a new transmission for the 2nd time in a year!!!!!!! Been there for over a month now. As soon as I get it back and get my return I am trading it in. I will never own a ford again.
  14. See. Various reasons. alot of people I see that do this are elderly who do want to keep the cats from scratching up furniture or because they have thin fragile skin and cats will tear them up. I have not owned but one cat in my life and she didnt need it. I dont judge those whose do. :-) its a choice and in some cases it is a good option for that person/cat.
  15. I just want to clarify I dont believe in declawing a cat either but it is an option and one that people often take for various reasons. Working at a vets office I see this all the time. Was just throwing it out there. :-) hope she finds the distractions she needs to stop scratching you. And yes see a dr about the scratches and get her shots soon! She needs them before getting spayed. Good luck!
  16. Maybe get her a scratching post? Also since she was outside you may want to see a dr about the infected scratch. That doesn't sound good. Declawing is also an option.
  17. Tried to make it to work at 12 from Morningside dr to Brownsville. Barely made it to pine valley rd and made my hubby come get me. Im pregnant and almost spun out in a pickup truck on 92 it freaked me out. On the way back home saw two cars slide into ditches face first. The rd was clear when I left my house yea not anymore. And they are still trying to get me to come into work. Everyone be careful!!! Im not leaving again until the weekend lol. Im from southwest Florida. Never driven in this stuff. It sucks.
  18. They don't answer their phones to my knowledge. You have to go to the office if you want to speak to someone.
  19. Not always true. My hubby and I found a great 3 bedroom 1 bathroom off of Hiram Sudie for 600$ it wasn't a "trailer". and we didnt really have neighbors. It wasn't a bad spot either. Good luck! There are things out there you just have to hunt for it. This is our most recent former landlord he is awesome!! We rented a 2 bedroom townhouse in rockmart from him.
  20. And no one answers the interview phone line? Ive never had that. Just no one answering the regular hotline #. Try again. It is the end of month and almost EVERYONE is due to renew at the same time. Just keep trying. First thing in the morning might be the best time to call.
  21. They should actually send you a renewal form in the mail. They sent me one. If not you can have a friend or someone else walk into the office and just pick up a renewal form, fill it out and get the forms and pay stubs needed and have someone else drop it off for you. No need for a computer or you to go in yourself. Ive dealt with Paulding dfcs enough to know that they no longer have anyone answer their phones, and the 1800 number is a waste of time. I applied 5 times and faxed ALL the stuff they needed when I had my 3 stepchildren here for the summer and one income. We needed it badly and they kept saying they never got any of my paper work all 5 times! Finally I had to go to the office myself and the nice lady there processed my stuff right then and there. They said that Paulding no longer had anyone working in their county department that's why you could never get ahold of anyone because they were short staffed. The Paulding cases were being transferred to other counties that didn't have enough people to handle the extra cases. Good luck.
  22. Pitbulls are not all aggressive. I was attacked by two pits at the age of 12. I was also bit by a shi-tzu and the age of 4. I am more scared of chihuahuas than I am of pit bulls or rotweilers or any big "scary" dog. I work at a vets office and see many different types and sizes every single day. ! Most bites or scratches since I've worked there have been chihuahuas other small dogs or cats. I hope that poor baby finds a warm place to eat and sleep and take care of her pups. You could always search for a local pitbull rescue to come out and help.. No dog deserves to go without or be lost just because u don't like their breed. Eta: we also own a pitbull. And a boxer and two small terriers. And have small children in the house. No problems here. :-)
  23. A few cars on my road were broken into last thursday,( near downtown hiram ) including my sisters car. Luckily all she had in there were bibles and christian cd's. I guess they didn't want those lol. I'm soooo thankful they didn't get into my locked car because my dumb a** had my debit card, my gps, my ipod, and cash in my console. Visible. I've definitely taken everything of value out since then. Of all the cars broken into the only thing stolen was a lottery ticket. Then the next day a young man was walking down the rd with a stack of tickets in his back pocket. (This man walks around here often but does not live on our rd ) then saw him again about 8 pm two nights ago walked around the rd turned around at the end walked down the side road then back to the main rd and disappeared. I wish the police would do something about this maybe even got a fingerprint or something but they came out took information and left.
  24. I dont know anything about the child, but i did hear the accident happen sitting at my desk. I went outside and saw a car and a truck, looked like the car tboned the truck right by the grands gas station entrance. The guy in the truck was picking up pieces of his truck from the ground but nothing else. Then 25 mins later the helicopter at ingles. Was this the same accident? I hope everyone involved is ok.
