Determined to find answers, Vivian reached out to a family friend who is a cardiologist in the United States. In June 2015, Vivian came to Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, for an evaluation and diagnosis.
Vivian underwent surgery in September 2015, supported by a rotating cadre of family members and friends, including her loving mother, Ruby.
The high-quality care Vivian received is made possible through the generosity of benefactors who previously gave to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy research and education. The family's gift, in honor of Vivian's parents Paul and Ruby Tsai, recognizes medical excellence and innovation at Mayo Clinic.

These treatments could help correct the severe spinal curve that had developed quickly during a growth spurt, her doctors said. The Christophersons learned about Camden's condition shortly after a family move put her in a different school district. Designed to treat moderate to severe scoliosis, vertebral body tethering typically is recommended for adolescents during puberty who are still growing.
Teresa's investigation took her and Camden to the Philadelphia Shriners Hospital for Children. In Philadelphia, Camden and Teresa met with surgeons that had pioneered vertebral body tethering. Although it's possible vertebral body tethering may be the last treatment Camden needs for scoliosis, the long-term results for the surgery aren't clear yet because the procedure is so new. From Teresa's perspective, it wasn't an easy road, but the effort to find an alternative solution for her daughter was well worth it.
For 33-year-old Tara Brigham of Jacksonville, Florida, living with a heart condition since birth wasn't something that was going to get in the way of living an active normal life. A Minnesota native, Tara was diagnosed with enlargement of the heart during a routine checkup when she was 1 year old. Tara's heart was monitored closely by her doctors at Mayo Clinic and later a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy specialist at the University of Minnesota.
Despite the scare and a challenging recovery, Tara resumed her life, finishing high school, attending college and graduate school, and getting married.
Tara is grateful that her transplant has enabled her to experience so much more of her life. Audra Popp has a rare tumor – anaplastic pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma, also known as anaplastic PXA.
Audra had 20 proton beam therapy sessions to try to destroy fast-growing cells possibly left behind after surgery. After Audra's fourth surgery, her surgeon initially suggested radiation therapy, but that wasn't in the cards.
After Audra's most recent surgery, her Mayo Clinic team had a new weapon in their arsenal – proton beam therapy. A registered nurse, Audra lives in Royalton, Minnesota – a three-hour drive from Rochester. Audra had proton beam therapy in the summer – her favorite season – and took full advantage of her time in Rochester. Raegan Cury didn’t worry at first when she developed a cough in early 2002 that wouldn’t go away. Even her husband, a pulmonologist, wasn't too worried, until she received a surprising diagnosis. Raegan, who lives in Atlantic Beach, Florida, had surgery to remove the cancer and woke up with just one lung, due to the extent of the disease. But they also headed to Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida to explore the possibility of lung transplantation. A lung restoration center under construction on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus could change that by making many more donor lungs viable for transplant. Growing up on a farm in central Florida, Paige Douglas enjoyed a unique childhood, caring for a menagerie of animals, horseback riding, even barrel racing at local rodeos.
But, when she was 10, Paige inadvertently hit her left knee while bouncing on a trampoline.
Her knee became so sensitive that the slightest touch or inadvertent bump would “bring excruciating pain, sending me to the ground, screaming and crying,” she recalls. Paige visited countless doctors near her home in Ocala, Florida, trying different medications, topical treatments and steroid injections. The team developed a customized treatment plan for Paige aimed at not only removing the cancer but saving her leg. To help bring awareness to others about sarcoma, Paige created “Team Paige,” an online support group. Last fall Paige nominated the Mayo team for the Sarcoma Alliance 2015 Outstanding Care Award. Stewart Rosen was beyond anxious when he learned he had a tumor the size of a walnut by his right ear. Stewart noticed a change in his hearing in his right ear, and a friend had recommended he see an ENT (ear, nose and throat) specialist.
Acoustic neuromas are noncancerous, usually slow-growing tumors that develop on the main nerve leading from the inner ear to the brain. Much to Stewart's surprise, his Mayo Clinic doctors told him they'd had a cancellation and could perform his surgery the next day. Stewart continues to be checked to make sure his acoustic neuroma doesn't recur – a very slight possibility. Our daughter, Mallory, was born with several congenital defects known cloacal exstrophy (OEIS – omphalocele, bladder exstrophy, imperforate anus and spinal defects) found in 1 and 400,000 live births. We instantly became patients of the Maternal Fetal Medicine team and were both closely monitored until birth.
The defects identified at birth were more serious and complicated than originally predicted through prenatal monitoring. Our family has lived, witnessed and felt Mayo Clinic’s mission and values firsthand, and continue to experience it on a regular basis. Mallory has endured four major surgeries (largest surgery – six hours on day 2 of life, involving 3 specialists teaming up to complete reconstruction of bladder, pelvis and bowels), multiple MRIs, hundreds of procedures, and numerous appointments.

These words from His Holiness the Dalai Lama resonated with Mayo Clinic staff and guests gathered to hear a special talk on "Compassion in Health Care" on Monday, Feb. His Holiness the Dalai Lama spent a good deal of time in his talk emphasizing the "sameness" of all human beings.
In a world of 7 billion people, the Dalai Lama says it is important to educate people that we are all human beings.
When we feel anger or irritation toward someone else, it is important to ask ourselves whether that person has been our "enemy from birth," according to the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama offered his advice for dealing with a patient who has received a difficult diagnosis. He also noted it was important to be honest with a person about a diagnosis, so that person can be prepared for the consequences. Biased: While a person may have compassion and loving kindness, it may be limited to those that they are related to or only people they know. Unbiased: Through awareness, 7 billion people can come to think of each other as brothers and sisters and to realize that their futures are interlinked. Even though she's just 24 years old, Megan has had a lifetime's worth of trials and tribulations. At the age of 21, just two months after Megan married her high school sweetheart, she was presented with another challenge. Megan would require an extended course of chemotherapy to shrink the tumor before she could have surgery to remove it.
Soon afterward, she was dealt another blow – one that must have been especially painful for someone who just completed cancer treatment.
Ita€™s difficult to express how much enjoyment I got out of hearing the old chestnut, a€?Wild Women,a€? written by Ida Cox and sung by Wool&Grant on a recent John Platt Sunday Morning Breakfast Show on WFUV-FM. Their joined voices provide a wealth of pleasure, no matter what direction their music takes them. A big formative experience came from Ina Maya€™s connection with a member of a frienda€™s family, Davidine Small, whose mother and uncles were vaudevillians and musicians. One of Ina Maya€™s big money gigs was the town Christmas party at Abbott Hall in downtown Marblehead. After high school, she moved to Manhattan and went to Barnard College, the womena€™s school affiliated with Columbia University.
In a short-lived episode after college, Ina May moved to Santa Cruz, Calif., to continue working in a rock band with her boyfriend. As she described it: a€?I booked myself at coffeehouses and colleges as a solo act but after a few months, the bass player from the rock band moved to town from where hea€™d been in California to play with me. One of my solo gigs without the band was at Sandya€™s (also a famous jazz club) in Beverly, Mass. As she saw it: a€?I missed playing out live and New York gigs were always high pressure showcase kinds of things.
The next change in her life came through her friend Jon Albrink, a session player and singer who also had bands playing his original music.
It was the era of singing sister acts such as The Lennon Sisters (The Lawrence Welk TV Show) and The McGuire Sisters (The Arthur Godfrey TV Show). Bev felt intimidated by the jazz people who surrounded her and stopped doing music for a time. She was finally on her own and became involved with protesting the Viet Nam war and in overarching societal problems.
She got introduced to and became heavily involved in the womena€™s movement, resulting in a greater level of self-awareness. Bev gave birth to her second child in 1982 and The Human Condition re-formed as a world-beat band, singing in different languages about international struggles. Ten years ago, Bev formed a trio called The Dissident Daughters with two women were recruited from the Brooklyn Womena€™s Chorus.
Beva€™s involvement with Ina May evolved from a Dissident Daughters recording project with Ina Maya€™s husband Daniel. While Bev brings a higher political sensibility and Ina May writes a greater amount of personal songs, they complement each other.
She got introduced to and became heavilyA  involved in the womena€™s movement, resulting in a greater level of self-awareness. On discovering that his daughter, who had left his house a year before, had settled here with her child, the elder brother had come from St. Prince Michael Ivanovich was a tall, handsome, white-haired, fresh coloured man, proud and attractive in appearance and bearing. Prince Peter wanted to ask his brother how, and under what circumstances, Lisa had left home, and who could possibly be the father of her child. That very morning, when his wife had attempted to condole with her brother-in-law, Prince Peter had observed a look of pain on his brother's face.
His sister-in-law was a quiet, gentle creature, who bowed in submission to her husband's will. Michael Ivanovich sigheda€”the word pained him; but mastering himself at once, he answered with a tired smile. For a long while after she had gone Michael Ivanovich walked to and fro on the square of carpet. He recalled the time when she was not merely his child, and a member of his family, but his darling, his joy and his pride.
He also recalled the time when she was growing into womanhood, and the curious feeling of fear and anger that he experienced when he became aware that men regarded her as a woman.
And then, as a last ghastly memory, there was the letter from Moscow, in which she wrote that she could not return home; that she was a miserable, abandoned woman, asking only to be forgiven and forgotten.
All this came back to him now as he paced backwards and forwards on the bedroom carpet, recollecting his former love for her, his pride in her. And again a curious feeling overpowered him: a mixture of self-pity at the recollection of his love for her, and of fury against her for causing him this anguish. DURING the last year Lisa had without doubt lived through more than in all the preceding twenty-five. These smiles and glances seemed to reveal to each, not only the soul of the other, but some vital and universal mystery.
How it had come about, how and when the devil, who had seized hold of them both, first appeared behind these smiles and glances, she could not say. Suddenly all that was beautiful, joyous, spiritual, and full of promise for the future, became animal and sordid, sad and despairing. She looked into his eyes and tried to smile, pretending that she feared nothing, that everything was as it should be; but deep down in her soul she knew it was all over. The thought overpowered her that she, too, might have been a mother had he not been married, and this vision of motherhood made her look into her own soul for the first time. Thus months dragged along, and then something happened which entirely transformed her life. She now directed all her thoughts to getting awaya€”somewhere where she could bear her childa€”and become a miserable, pitiful mother, but a mother withal. Michael Ivanovich followed her advice and went to the public gardens, which were so near to Everything, and meditated with annoyance on the stupidity, the obstinacy, and heartlessness of women. Michael Ivanovich followed the stout figure of Maria Ivanovna into a tiny parlour, and from the next room came the screams of a baby, sounding cross and peevish, which filled him with disgust.
Maria Ivanovna apologised, and went into the room, and he could hear her soothing the child.
He had just turned to leave, when he heard quick, light steps on the stairs, and he recognised Lisa's voice. She got up, and suddenly the wild idea seized her to show him whom she loved so deeply the thing she now loved best of all in the world.
When Michael Ivanovich returned to his brother's house, Alexandra Dmitrievna immediately rushed to him. With renewed resolve, she consulted with specialists, reached out to friends, and sought referrals.
This procedure corrects the curve of the spine by connecting two or more of the spinal vertebrae.
Larson at Mayo Clinic, they discussed a variety of possibilities, including the VBT procedure. The surgeon attaches a cord to each of the screws and then pulls and secures the cord, so the vertebrae are cinched together on one side and splayed open on the other, correcting the curve. Shriners Hospitals for Children and Mayo Clinic have a close relationship that dates back to Mayo Clinic's founders. At this time, though, it looks to be an encouraging step forward in the scoliosis treatment choices available to teens like Camden, who is happy she had the opportunity to give it a try. In fact, she says the heart transplant she received six years ago as a result of her condition has made her life even more fulfilling. While she had not had any symptoms of a heart problem since birth, the enlargement was significant enough that her physician at Mayo Clinic's Rochester campus suggested that a biopsy of her heart should be done right away.
Over time, she became increasingly symptomatic as her heart failure worsened, and Minnesota winters were especially difficult. She is currently a medical librarian at Mayo Clinic's Florida campus, and she has been healthy and has led a fairly normal life in the six years since her transplant. She's had five craniotomies since 2001, and she has a scar from her right ear to the crown of her head as evidence. Buckner says a genetic alteration in the tumor that was removed in Audra's last surgery showed a mutation that makes the tumor cells more vulnerable to a new drug combination. She explored the area with tours of Mayo Clinic's historical homes and buildings, a walking food and history tour, a trolley tour and concerts by the river. She was a healthy young woman, athletic, a former gymnast, and her initial chest X-ray showed what looked like pneumonia. Mayo Clinic transplants more organs than any center in the United States, and the Florida campus is one of the nation’s leading lung transplant centers.
During Reagan's lung transplant in 2004, he washed her remaining native airways with a chemotherapy solution to try to prevent any remaining cancer cells from inhabiting Raegan’s newly transplanted lung.
The next year, the lung allocation system changed, and the guidelines stated that outcomes for patients with Raegan’s disease were considered too uncertain to warrant transplant of a precious donor lung. The center, now under construction, could make enough lungs available to enable transplants for people who currently don’t meet the waiting list criteria. She had synovial cell sarcoma, a soft-tissue cancer that typically occurs near the joints in the arm, neck or leg in young patients. Despite the 250-mile distance between her home and Jacksonville, Paige chose to undergo the treatments at Mayo.


According to the organization, the award is usually presented to one individual but Paige’s nomination moved the group so much that it honored everyone.
And with the surgery he'd need to remove this tumor, Stewart knew that he'd lose hearing in his right ear. That doctor detected a major difference in hearing between Stewart's ears and ordered an MRI to rule out a brain tumor. After Mallory’s 20-week gestational ultrasound, we were referred to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, from Mayo Clinic Health System – Red Cedar in Menomonie. In the beginning, we wondered how these abnormalities were missed in the extensive prenatal monitoring. We are thankful for Mayo Clinic and know that its clinical practice, education and research saved Mallory’s life and continues to give us a bright outlook for the future. She’ll have medical challenges throughout life, but with the gift of Mayo Clinic, she is well on her way to living a happy, healthy and “normal” life. We are thankful for strong dedication at all levels (Appointments, coordinators, social workers, HUCs, Housekeeping, CNAs, Child Life, nurses, NPs, flight crews, residents, fellows and consultants).
The monk had spent five years as a hermit in the mountains with very little by way of physical comfort.
He advises people to then familiarize themselves with those positive emotions and train themselves to focus on those emotions.
But a series of events, medical and otherwise, led her on a different path – an educational path that culminated with her sharing her surprising story at the Fiesta Bowl in Arizona on Jan. The chemotherapy cocktail was so powerful that Megan was cautioned not to kiss her new husband, as the side effects could be passed onto him. Doctors found Megan had a rare gene that causes Li-Fraumeni syndrome, which affects only about 400 people in the U.S.
Still, Megan prefers to discuss the upside of her journey -- her supportive family, friends and Mayo caregivers who have encouraged her through her trials. She has a passion for educating others about the gene that has changed her life — and she wants to be there for young adults or children who are going through the same thing. Her teacher, George Walkey, hired her as a helper for his group guitar lessons at the Marblehead Y. During their visits from New York, everyone made up songs and wrote plays, then performed them. She played the venerable Postcrypt Coffeehouse and other concerts on campus, opening at one point for legendary jazz pianist and composer Mary Lou Williams. A drummer hea€™d met in California also moved in, and we met some local musicians, and we started doing some of my solo gigs as a band. I opened for Paul Pena who wrote (Big Old) a€?Jet Airliner.a€™ He invited me to sing with him that night, and I jammed with him onstage. Musicians that I knew were able to play a€?cluba€? dates, weddings, anniversary parties, bar mitzvahs, etc., and I thought it would be good for me to get better as a singer and to learn material, not just work in a band based around me a€” and to earn money.
Her oldest sister bought some stock arrangements and thata€™s how Bev learned to sight-read music.
She listened to the greats like Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald and thought a€?I cana€™t do that.a€? She played the role of the musiciana€™s a€?old ladya€? for a couple of years and then ended the marriage. It was liberating for Bev to finally see her own involvement in an abusive relationship as part of a greater issue.
The project never went anywhere, but Bev and Ina May had gotten to know each other through a song writing workshop and started singing together.
They got to know each othera€™s life stories and saw that they had similar sensibilities as young performers. I asked her if everything was all right, and she eruptedA in anger about something her husband had done to her. These words were spoken by Prince Michael Ivanovich to his brother Peter, who was governor of a province in Central Russia.
The look had at once been masked by an expression of unapproachable pride, and he had begun to question her about their flat, and the price she paid. When he retired to the room which had been made ready for him, and was just beginning to take out his artificial teeth, some one tapped lightly on the door with two fingers.
His daughtera€”hisa€”brought up in the house of her mother, the famous Avdotia Borisovna, whom the Empress honoured with her visits, and acquaintance with whom was an honour for all the world!
He saw her again, a little thing of eight or nine, bright, intelligent, lively, impetuous, graceful, with brilliant black eyes and flowing auburn hair. He thought of his jealous love when she came coquettishly to him dressed for a ball, and knowing that she was pretty. Then the horrid recollection of the scene with his wife came to him; their surmises and their suspicions, which became a certainty. He recoiled with terror before the incomprehensible fact of her downfall, and he hated her for the agony she was causing him. On the one hand, she saw poverty which was real and repulsive, and a sham poverty even more repulsive and pitiable; on the other, she saw the terrible indifference of the lady patronesses who came in carriages and gowns worth thousands. Every word they spoke was invested by these smiles with a profound and wonderful significance.
But, when terror first seized her, the invisible threads that bound them were already so interwoven that she had no power to tear herself free. She understood that she had not found in him what she had sought; that which she had once known in herself and in Koko. She fell ill, and the efforts of the doctors were unavailing; in her hopelessness she resolved to kill herself. It was real life, and despite the torture of it, had the possibility been given her, she would not have turned back from it. Somehow she planned and arranged it all, leaving her home and settling in a distant provincial town, where no one could find her, and where she thought she would be far from her people.
He entered his brother's study, and handed him the cheque, filled in for a sum which he asked him to pay in monthly instalments to his daughter. It was too unbearable, this preparation to meet her, and any explanation seemed impossible. And when he saw himself as he was, he realised how he had wronged her, how guilty he had been in his pride, in his coldness, even in his anger towards her.
However, she began to lose strength in her early 30s and went to the doctor with her father, Paul. But as she watched another member of her family struggle with symptoms she recognized in herself, her own condition became harder to ignore. While eating dinner, Vivian would often have to lie down for half an hour before returning to her meal because she would become so tired and lightheaded. Finally, she received a precise diagnosis — apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a disease in which the heart muscle becomes abnormally thick. Schaff immediately to discuss the possibility of the procedure she had been told did not exist — an apical myectomy. Not only will this generous gift benefit Mayo Clinic patients, but patients throughout the world, including East Asia, where the Tsai family calls home. So when doctors told her, at age 13, that she had to wear a brace for 22 hours a day to combat scoliosis, and surgery to fuse her spine was likely in her future, Camden was devastated. And her mother, Teresa Christopherson, wasn't ready to accept that a brace and fusion surgery were her daughter's only choices. She was fitted for a brace, but due to the severity of her condition, her doctors were concerned it wouldn't be enough to correct the problem. Metal screws and rods typically are used to hold the vertebrae together, so they can heal into one solid unit. In 2015, Shriners Hospitals joined the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a national network of organizations committed to better serving patients and their families through physician collaboration.
She was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a disease in which the heart muscle becomes abnormally thick.
Tara went into ventricular fibrillation and was taken to the hospital where an automated external defibrillator, or AED, was used to restore her normal heart rhythm.
Audra is the first person at Mayo Clinic with anaplastic PXA to be treated with proton beam therapy.
She also took advantage of classes offered at the Mayo Clinic Cancer Education Center, including tai chi, Reiki, nutrition, meditation and stress management. Mayo Clinic is collaborating with United Therapeutics, which has developed technology to sustain and rejuvenate donor lungs, making previously marginal lungs suitable for transplantation and extending the time lungs remain viable. After an exploratory surgery in 2001, doctors told her she had a neuroma, an area of increased sensitivity and pain that often develops after physical trauma to a nerve. She made a five-hour roundtrip five days a week for five weeks. “It was hard but I wanted to maintain a sense of normalcy for my family and I trusted this team … doctors who care, show compassion, and genuinely took time to know me as a patient,” she says. But Stewart, an accountant by day and violinist by night, worried that removing the tumor, an acoustic neuroma, might affect his ability to play music. It was explained that Mallory’s condition of OEIS is so rare that the Maternal Fetal Medicine team did not know to even look for that type of defect. Almost every person on Mallory’s team was unfamiliar with her condition of OEIS, but no one ever feared the unknown. From the day she was born, Mayo Clinic has given us hope and realistic solutions to her “never seen before” problems.
When you read about her on paper, you expect to notice great physical abnormalities, but to the untrained eye, she is a happy, healthy, thriving toddler. He says he is impressed with Megan’s resiliency and ability to understand what her treatment program would require. Curtis were invited to watch the game from a suite at the stadium in Glendale, Arizona, and a brief video of her story was shown on the big screen.
I knew it was Ina May and Bev because Ia€™d heard them before and their sound is immediately recognizable.
Both women started making music when they were very young and both of their paths make fascinating stories.
She would help tune studentsa€™ guitars and at the end of the class, would sing and play a song.
Although she cana€™t be sure, Ina May thinks that Davidine might have helped her get her first local gigs.
Paul Penaa€™s producer and booking agent were there and approached me about working with them. The gig organizer told Ina May that a€?Danny Weiss would be playing the evening gig and was a genius.a€? Ina May was skeptical.
Always a high-energy person, Bev had a full-time job and was a single parent throughout this time. Their first gig as Wool&Grant was a co-bill with Bev and The Dissident Daughters at The Good Coffeehouse in Brooklyn. Petersburg; and the younger, Lisaa€”his favourite, who had disappeared from home a year before. She was pretty, but her hair was always carelessly dressed, and she herself was untidy and absent-minded. His daughtera€”; and he had lived his life as a knight of old, knowing neither fear nor blame. He remembered how she used to jump up on his knees and hug him, and tickle his neck; and how she would laugh, regardless of his protests, and continue to tickle him, and kiss his lips, his eyes, and his cheeks. He dreaded the passionate glances which fell upon her, that she not only did not understand but rejoiced in.
She was a familiar figure, beautifula€”but her first youth had passed, and she had become somehow part of the ball-room furniture.
The calamity had happened in Finland, where they had let her visit her aunt; and the culprit was an insignificant Swede, a student, an empty-headed, worthless creaturea€”and married.
He remembered the conversation with his sister-in-law, and tried to imagine how he might forgive her. Music, too, when they were listening together, or when they sang duets, became full of the same deep meaning. Her father, so she thought, had cast her away from him, and she longed passionately to live and to have done with play. To kill oneself because of what the world might say was easy; but the moment she saw her own life dissociated from the world, to take that life was out of the question. She began to pray, but there was no comfort in prayer; and her suffering was less for herself than for her father, whose grief she foresaw and understood. But, unfortunately, her father's brother received an appointment there, a thing she could not possibly foresee. He was glad that it was he who was guilty, and that he had nothing to forgive, but that he himself needed forgiveness.
She opened her eyes very wide; and, not taking them from her father's face, remained hesitating and motionless.
Nishimura explained that she had an undiagnosed apical aneurysm, which had been present in her body for at least two years, putting her in extremely high risk for blood clots. The finding was surprising, because a year earlier, an exam showed no signs of spine problems.
Because this is a new procedure that hasn't been in use long, though, Teresa wasn't ready to commit to it without doing some additional research.
Together, the team conducted the procedure through five small incisions on Camden's right side. The thickened heart muscle can make it harder for the heart to pump blood throughout the body to vital organs. Unfortunately, her heart failure was progressing rapidly, and in June 2009, she received a ventricular assist device. She also has had three regimens of chemotherapy through the years and six weeks of radiation therapy at Mayo Clinic in 2007. Murray and Perdikis followed, reconstructing her leg with tissue and muscle grafts from her calf. Today Paige has a 14” scar but complete use of her left leg.
Express concern and let the person feel that the person is really taking care of them seriously. Therea€™s something of a country twang in Ina May Woola€™s voice that increases the veracity in her songs about lifea€™s travails and victories. Her mother graduated from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and was an oil painter and then later a prolific printmaker. She played kidsa€™ parties in junior high and high school and would get $10 for each party during which shea€™d lead singalongs. She didna€™t play acoustic for a while and hung out with rock musicians, did studio work and was in a rock opera, The Last Words of Dutch Schultz.
It took her a while to extricate herself from that relationship, but she managed to do it around 1966. She learned to use the concept of a€?story songsa€? to make a political point, and on the first album, wrote about a working-class woman, a€?Janie,a€? from Ironbound, N.
Ina May has learned more about harmonizing from working with Bev, who is still a choral director. Towards every one, excepting the children, whom he treated with almost reverent tenderness, he adopted an attitude of distant hauteur. She had, also, the strangest, most unaristocratic ideas, by no means fitting in the wife of a high official.
She continued to regard him with the same gentle, imploring look in her blue eyes, sighing even more deeply. The fact that he had a natural son born of a Frenchwoman, whom he had settled abroad, did not lower his own self-esteem. He was naturally opposed to all demonstration, but this impetuous love moved him, and he often submitted to her petting. Michael Ivanovich remembered how he had realised that she was on the road to spinsterhood, and desired but one thing for her. He remembereda€”it was not so very long ago, for she was more than twenty thena€”her beginning a flirtation with a boy of fourteen, a cadet of the Corps of Pages who had been staying with them in the country. Petersburga€”this animal existence that never sounded the depths, but only touched the shallows of life. She yearned for something real, for life itselfa€”not this playing at living, not this skimming life of its cream. Somehow, she herself did not know how that terrible fascination of glances and smiles began, the meaning of which cannot be put into words. She hoped that he would not make use of his power; yet all the while she vaguely desired it. This he promised to do; but when she met him next he said it was impossible for him to write just then. She really desired to take her life, and imagined that she had irrevocably decided on the step. For four months she had been living in the house of a midwifea€”one Maria Ivanovna; and, on learning that her uncle had come to the town, she was preparing to fly to a still remoter hiding-place.
She took him to her tiny room, and told him how she lived; but she did not show him the child, nor did she mention the past, knowing how painful it would be to him. Guided by images from a tiny camera inserted through her back and using a technique called intraoperative low-dose CT computer navigation, the surgeons inserted the screws and cord into Camden's spine without needing a large incision or causing any significant muscle damage.


Eventually, she had an implantable cardioverter defibrillator implanted to provide an immediate treatment for any future episode. The device allowed Tara to recover and be healthy enough to be put on the heart transplant list. Therea€™s a Buffy Sainte-Marie-like quaver and a power in the voice of Bev Grant that helps raise a persona€™s social awareness when it happens to be her goal.
It was a whole other world, some rock and pop and also some standards and jazz singing with pickup bands.
Another band person was explaining to Dan how Ina May sings a€?this songa€? and a€?that song.a€? Daniel said in response (not aware that Ina May was standing there) a€?Oh, I know all that female stuff!a€? Ina May stepped up and said, a€?Oh, really?
Bev was known as a€?the little girl with the big voice,a€? and sang songs like a€?Blue Suede Shoesa€? and a€?Heartbreak Hotela€? as well as Teresa Brewer covers. As part of that group she made a documentary about the Miss America pageant protest in 1968 and she took many photos surrounding that event.
She has written songs to illustrate those issues.] After the Human Condition disbanded, she formed the Brooklyn Womena€™s Chorus, a 40-person vocal group. While Ina May focuses on rhythm guitar and finger picking, Bev has taken on lead guitar work.
TheyA can choose to be forgiving and merciful, allowing the conflict and the improper attitudes and behaviorA to be covered by the blood of Jesus. And yet it was so natural to him that every one somehow acknowledged his right to be haughty. These ideas she would express most unexpectedly, to everybody's astonishment, her husband's no less than her friends'. And now this daughter, for whom he had not only done everything that a father could and should do; this daughter to whom he had given a splendid education and every opportunity to make a match in the best Russian societya€”this daughter to whom he had not only given all that a girl could desire, but whom he had really LOVED; whom he had admired, been proud ofa€”this daughter had repaid him with such disgrace, that he was ashamed and could not face the eyes of men! He must get her married off as quickly as possible, perhaps not quite so well as might have been arranged earlier, but still a respectable match. Sometimes they would argue, but the moment their eyes met, or a smile flashed between them, the discussion remained far behind. So, obtaining some poison, she poured it into a glass, and in another instant would have drunk it, had not her sister's little son of five at that very moment run in to show her a toy his grandmother had given him. The train left at seven in the evening, giving him time for an early dinner before leaving.
Together, Wool&Grant possess a sweet blend and a one-two punch that invites all kinds of a€?strong womena€? references. Are you married?a€? and wound up telling him about her relationship problems after the gig. Her oldest sister had taken several years of piano lessons and learned electric bass, while her middle sister took up lap steel. Theya€™ve each brought earlier work to the new album and have collaborated on one of the new songs, a€?The Last Man on the Mountain,a€? about strip mining. To remember all this, when that sweet child had become what she now was, a creature of whom he could not think without loathing. She had become more and more fascinated by her own success in the round of gaieties she lived in.
Then how she had rebuked her father severely, coldly, and even rudely, when, to put an end to this stupid affair, he had sent the boy away. In the tall, strong figure of this man, with his fair hair and light upturned moustache, under which shone a smile attractive and compelling, she saw the promise of that life for which she longed. The following day he wrote to her, telling her that he was already married, though his wife had left him long since; that he knew she would despise him for the wrong he had done her, and implored her forgiveness. Forgetting everything, his baseness and deceit, her mother's querulousness, and her father's sorrow, she smiled. He breakfasted with his sister-in-law, who refrained from mentioning the subject which was so painful to him, but only looked at him timidly; and after breakfast he went out for his regular morning walk. Later I realized that when you change the words, the chords, the melody and the rhythm of a song, it might be called a€?writinga€™ a song. Abruptly, her husband and a bass player friend moved to New York, where they looked for gigs.
And then the smiles and glances, the hope of something so incredibly beautiful, led, as they were bound to lead, to that which she feared but unconsciously awaited.
She shuddered at the recollection that she was on the point of killing it, together with herself.
Shea€™d only heard him doing pop and rock on synthesizer at the gig and was flabbergasted to hear him playing a€?gorgeous acoustic jazza€? on a piano.
She said she loved him; that she felt herself bound to him for ever whether he was married or not, and would never leave him. Theya€™ve been married 25 years now and Daniel has produced both of Ina Maya€™s solo albums.
The implication is that the husbands and wives to whom Peter was writing were already carrying out these improper and destructive actions; therefore, he was strongly warning andA forbidding them to stop this wrong behavior. She grew more and more depressed, and in this gloomy mood she went to visit an aunt in Finland.
The next time they met he told her that he and his parents were so poor that he could only offer her the meanest existence.
The fresh scenery and surroundings, the people strangely different to her own, appealed to her at any rate as a new experience. She answered that she needed nothing, and was ready to go with him at once wherever he wished. But to live on with this secret, with occasional meetings, and merely corresponding with him, all hidden from her family, was agonising, and she insisted again that he must take her away. She has great conformation, exceptional movement and is the happiest dog I have ever owned.
Petersburg, he wrote promising to come, and then letters ceased and she knew no more of him.
Her job as a therapy dog for an 83 yr old woman that had is stroke is one she takes very seriously. You could say that this word pictures a person who is determined to do to someone else exactly what the offender didA to him.
We continually have Home Health therapists in daily and she greets each of them then quietly goes to her spot to watch everything that goes on. She accompanies me into the chicken coop and is great with the chickens as well as with her cat ( yes her cat that she found in a ditch). Ia€™m telling you, friend, this is the wrong route to take!A What you sow is exactly what you reap. She passed her Herding Instinct testing at 5 months of age and now working on her Canine Good Citizen certification. It is far better for you to sow mercy and forgivenessA than to get into the business of sowing bitterness.
I have owned and worked with many breeds of dogs and Arya is by far one of the most intelligent, willing and trainable.
This Greek word tells us exactly what the husbands and wives to whom Peter was writing must have beenA feeling. I would totally recommend PATCHWORK SHEPHERDS and have friends now that have bought puppies from here as well and all of them are as wonderful as Arya. This wordA loidoria pictures a person who feels (whether or not those feelings are based on actual truth) that he or she has beenA ill-treated, misused, berated, and abused. This person considers himselfA victimized, oppressed, mishandled, harassed, manhandled, violated, defiled, imposed upon wrongly, debased,A and humiliated. A He said, "she is really a love," and described her gentleness and cuddling even from the get-go.
A She is very playful with her 'brothers' (two older choc labs), but is extremely responsive to me and is my 'watcher.' A No matter where I am, she is A watching over me.
A When we settle in the evening to watch a movie, she will quietly peruse the house, coming back to my side after she has checked everything out. When compounded together, the word eulogia means good, swell, wonderful, and pleasurable words.A You can be sure that at some point along the way, your spouse will disappoint you and let youA down.
Even if he or she doesna€™t mean to do it, it will happen simply because your mate is human orA because you have expectations that are impossible for anyone to meet 100 percent of the time.A So when your flesh gets riled up and feels like it has been violated or mistreated, dona€™t immediately blow your top and start acting ugly in response.
A If she could, she would hop up on my lap and sit there, just as she did when she was a fuzz-ball pup!
If youa€™ll let the Holy Spirit work in you, He will show you how to return kindness for every injustice you perceive has been done to you. A wrong response from you will only aggravate the situation andmake it worse.A Instead of paying back acts of unkindness with harsh, retaliatory remarks or calculated acts of revenge, make the decision that you are going to respond to every incident by speaking a blessing over your spouse! In other words, when you think of something negative that your spouse has done, determine not to give in to the urges of your flesh to retaliate.
Choose instead to return those inconsiderate acts with words of love.A If something has happened that tempts you to be bitter, refuse to take offense. Instead of responding with words that attack and tear down your spouse, decide that youa€™re going to speakwords that build him or her up.
Instead of paying back an insult with an insult, make the decision to speak a blessing!A That day when the woman sitting next to me on the airplane talked about how she was going to pay her husband back for the things he had done to her, I could see that she was headed down a road of revenge that would only aggravate her situation. It was serendipity that brought you all the way over the mountains on Monday so we could get her!Also a couple of short videos if you're interested.
Ita€™s all right to talk about things that disappoint you, but that kind of discussion needs to take place in a healthy, productive way.
I was just getting to the serious stage ofshopping for a black coated GSD to raise for my own pet and protection dogwhen my nephew T.J. Even though my spouse has been wrong as well,A he (or she) couldna€™t have been any uglier or more hurtful than I was when I spoke thoseA harsh, retaliatory words. Please help me to become more like Jesus a€” to release blessing afterA blessing as I speak only words of kindness to my spouse. BlackJack (Zoey x Drake 2009) is doing fine, being a good boy that loves to be around us (Right now he is under my desk sleeping at my feet). I refuse to get into the retaliation business, for I am called to be in the blessing business! What happened when you responded to a bad situation with words of kindnessA instead of with retaliatory remarks?
We had many family gattering and other partys and he is always good around people in the house. Are you willing to ask the Holy Spirit to prepare you for the next time you faceA a potentially explosive situation in your marriage? When my kid gets around to it she will send you pictures, sorry Ia€™m not the computer savvy one. Thank you again for Morgan, she is a gem, here is her 9 week picture (the ear did come down). I think he will excell, and it will be good for the boys to learn how to deal with him (other than play). We purchased Pruett (black collar male from Zoey x Doc August '08 litter) and were so thrilled with him that we had to get another! A few weeks later we welcomed Daphne (hot pink collar female from Anna x Doc August '08 litter) into our lives.
He quickly learns new commands and we are currently practicing, "seek", where we will tell him to "sit and stay" and then we go hide his ball and tell him to "seek" and he finds it.
She loves to play in the snow!!She has been doing really well in the house, she is a very quick learner.
I know the "puppy stage" lasts for awhile, but if it continues to go as smoothly as it has been going, it will definitely be a breeze. She loves to play fetch and she is really good at it, which is surprising to me for her age.
She is such a sweet puppy, she is always trying to make friends with all the animals she meets, most which unfortunately haven't been too fond of her. Miah is starting to be a little friendly, not much, but like I said, Tymber is a persistant little pup and I believe that eventually they will be pals. We will be taking her on her second fishing trip tomorrow, which is always very exciting for us. She loves playing with any kind of plants and grass- we are hoping she grows out of that stage for our landscape's sake!
Anywho, I just wanted to let you know what a great pup she is and how much Tyler and myself enjoy having her. He is everythingA I could have ever hoped for in a German Shepherd and I am really happy that I got him. Several people in our training class have commented on his lovely conformation as he trots across the room while playing with the other pups. He's a great dog!A Anyway, hope all is well in your part of the world and that you are enjoying the holiday season. Although I had some concerns on how Gracie would react, from the first walk that we did on the way home from Patchwork, she has been wonderful. Already they play together, with Gracie laying down so that she is on Argus' level, letting him crawl all over her. He already knows his name, figured out how to negotiate the step up the deck, and how to run from me when he picks up something I don't want him to have.
He follows us around from room to room and always sleeps next to us when we are in the room.
I do have a crate and have used it but not very much, mostly I just watch him and when I catch that certain look I just take him out and tell him to go potty.
When I was in shop he would play under my bench and when he was tired he would sleep under my stool. He and Gracie had a good time exploring and finding just about every kind of poop there is out there. Everyone that meets her is in awe of not only her beauty and structure, but even more so of her super sweet and willing disposition.A  I cannot say enough about her. She is very gentle, smart, intelligent, super athletic, and just wants to please and love everyone.A  She loves to crawl into our laps and pretend she is a tiny lap dog. A His big brother Jackson and he are the best of buds, they have really bonded into something special!
A Also, wea€™d like to thank you for letting us come out and see him when he was a puppy, and for giving us little updates on how he was doing when he was just a lila€™ guy.A  (10lbs when we picked him up to take him home seems little compared to the size he is now!
After working for a vet for more then 10 years my husband had to really talk me into getting a GSD. She has gone though a basic and advanced off leash obediance class and this comming year brings more fun with tracking and agility classes signed up. We are now thinking of getting her a little brother and look forward to coming out to visit and meet more parents. He is adapting quickly to his new home on Orcas Island, WA A and after 3 days already knows his new name.
We have had him for two days now and he has already learned his name, learned how to come when called, walks great on a leash, has learned the command "gentle" for when he takes things with his mouth, is completely potty trained and sleeps all night long in his crate with no problems. We have never seen such a loving, well behaved, intelligent puppy before and we feel so lucky that he is now a part of our family. John and I were so pleased to see the safety measures that you take prior to letting anyone be near or handle any of the puppies.
Because of your loving care for your dogs we now have two of the greatest puppies that anyone could ever ask for in life! I am grateful for the time that we were able to spend with the puppies getting to know each and every one of them. You are wonderful about keeping everyone informed through your website just as you did while we were waiting to be able to take the Sebastian and Kasia home. We were also very impressed that you were so willing to let us come visit and you even encouraged us to do so. We thoroughly appreciate that you allowed us to be a part of the puppies lives even before they were in their new home. Through your attentive behavior to each and every one of your puppies we new the silly things they did, what they liked to play with all the way down to their little itchy spot that they liked to have scratched.
Because of all your love and attention we have two beautiful, healthy puppies that we will get to love for years to come.A A Thank you so much for our beautiful puppies! A  I got hopeful when I found your pages, with your dog Penny, who reminded me so much of our Isis, who was a beautiful, athletic,and loving black and red blanket pattern longcoat. You DID say on your page that your goal was to find the right dog for people, right down to the color. The way you described the parents of different litters, and later the pups themselves, was exactly right.A  Patiently, you discussed all the little characteristics of each pup in a way that just about made up for our never being able to actually see the pups in person or hold them in our arms. Pashi learned every trick all of my other dogs know in one 10 minute session at age 11 weeks, and never forgot them.A  She and Itta (9 weeks) both sit at the door automatically now, better than any of our other dogs who have been working on it for ages.
