Anaconda, Dad, and Family: 2-Year-Old Denied Life-Saving Kidney Transplant Because of Dad's Probation Violation @balleralert 2-Year-Old Denied Life-Saving Kidney Transplant Because of Dad’s Probation Violation – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A life-saving procedure has been delayed for a 2-year-old boy, who was born prematurely without functioning kidneys, because his dad violated his probation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, a kidney transplant was scheduled for Oct. 3, just days after the child’s father, who was a 100 percent perfect match for his son, was arrested for violating his probation. Anthony Dickerson was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Prior to his release, Emory Hospital, where the scheduled surgery was set to take place, sent a letter to Gwinnett County jail, saying, “Mr. Dickerson is currently in custody for a parole violation. If Mr. Dickerson could be escorted to Emory for blood work and a pre-operative appointment tomorrow, September 29, we will be able to continue with the scheduled surgery.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, once Dickerson was released, that’s when things took a turn for the worse. The hospital delayed the procedure, saying they needed to make sure Dickerson was complying with the terms of his parole for the next three months before they could proceed with the transplant. However, the family believes that the violation shouldn’t delay the process if the donor is healthy and clean, as it has become more urgent after AJ, the 2-year-old, suffered a stroke. But, his dad will not be re-evaluated by the hospital until January 2018 “after the receipt of his completed documentation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s about my son,” AJ’s mother said. “He’s been through a lot. It’s like we’ve been waiting on this. And Dad making a mistake shouldn’t affect what he wants to do with our son,” adding that January may be too late for her young son. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, the couple says their only option is to get on the wait list for kidney transplants.

America, Crazy, and Fila: The '90s Are Officially Back! Tamagotchi ls Making a Comeback @balleralert The ‘90s Are Officially Back! Tamagotchi Is Making a Comeback - blogged by @miss_binky ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Look around. Everywhere you go, it’s pretty obvious – the 90s are back and in full effect. So for a generation that’s re-embracing Tommy Hilfiger, FILA, and Super Nintendo, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear that the Tamagotchi is making a comeback too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s right, the Japanese “virtual pet” will hit store shelves again in November (just in time for the holidays). Originally released in 1997, the toy had millions of kids addicted to feeding and cleaning up the poop of a pixelated “pet,” and drove parents and teachers alike crazy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Surprisingly, the re-release of the Tamagotchi will not have any real tech upgrades. The only difference between the 2017 and 1997 version is that it will be about 20% smaller. Bandai America, the company behind the toy, is banking on the love of nostalgia to fuel sales of the virtual pet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to marketing director, Tara Badie: “For many Generation X kids, the Tamagotchi device can be considered America’s first and favorite digital pet. The enduring power of Tamagotchi is its clear expression that nurturing and love never goes out of style.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So the question is, will kids raised on smartphones and iPads see the allure in a colorless, pixelated blob the same we we did in the 90s?
