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.

Abc, Facebook, and Finish Line: GOGE Earl Granville remembers someone from Outside Magazine taking the picture after he’d finished a 60-hour, 70-plus mile Spartan Race. There’s Earl, his prosthetic leg in frame, decked in a black-and-white shirt that reads “Agoge.” That’s the name of the grueling, two-and-a-half-day endurance test he’d just finished. It’s a race so rigorous, even for those without a prosthesis to worry about, that “Every man dies, but not every man lives” is its tagline. Granville lived, and he’s been in the news plenty since that race. This past April, he made national headlines when he slung his race guide, Andi Piscopo, over his shoulder and carried her across the finish line of the Boston Marathon. ABC News even wrote it up: “Veteran Who Lost Leg in Afghanistan Carries Friend Across Boston Marathon Finish Line.” But this past month, Granville started getting messages from friends and fans on Facebook about that year-old Agoge picture. Somebody with an explosive political opinion was clearly making a bunch of money using Earl’s face to hawk some shirts, and they weren’t sure he was in on it. “They screenshotted and sent it to me in a Facebook post,” said Granville. “They saw someone selling that shirt.” Someone had scraped off the Agoge logo from the front of his shirt with Photoshop. Granville’s face and pose and prosthetic leg remain, but now the shirt reads, “I don’t kneel,” below an American flag. Granville doesn’t know who did it, but he’s doing whatever he can to get it taken down. “If somebody asked for my permission, I would’ve said no. But I didn’t hear anything from any of them,” said Granville. That image was used to sell T-shirts all across the web. One page created an entire web store around it called “ineel” that’s since been taken down. The associated Facebook page, which was called “Veteran Talk” and is now known as “Veteran’s Pride” to its nearly 25,000 subscribers, is still live. “There’s one page in particular (Veteran’s Pride) where I reached out to them. I can see they read it. They blocked me.

Walk into a room full of different nationalities, I guarantee the American person will be the first to introduce themselves. It's a confidence thing, and I admire it. 2. 3. When they use the imperial system. 4. Wearing sneakers with anything 5. Big smiles, firm handshakes 6. Using big adjectives generously ("Wow, your aunt's kidney stones sound awesome!" or "This Euroshopper beer tastes great!") Mostly it's the 'prepared for anything' look they have about them (fanny pack, backpack, bottled water, camera pouch) compared to various other tourists- Asians tend to herd together for safety, while Europeans vary between blend-right-in Scandinavian to designer-brands-everywhere French and traffic-laws-are-for-others Italian. But Americans are the only ones who seem to view a perfectly civilized, modern city like some kind of uncharted jungle that doesn't have places to shelter in the rain or buy cheap bottled water. 7. They say 'great' and are not being sarcastic. I can't even begin to imagine making a sentence where great actually means great. 8. 9. Constant clapping Being surprised about the topless models on page 3. 10. Speaking as a former barman or "bartender" as American customers would say... tipping! No British person will ever tip a barman. I'll occasionally get bought a drink by drunk ladies or gents, but Brits actually giving me money for doing a job that I was already being paid for? Never happened. I would listen for American accents (which were easy to hear due to their natural loudness) and immediately serve them next 11. Americans describe distances in driving time, as opposed to miles or kilometers 12. The dead giveaway is when they call you "honey" or "sweetie" or "darling" 13. 14. North face jackets. Everywhere. Incredibly loud but incredibly friendly. Very often you can hear them before you see them 15.
