Ask Amy: Recovering mom doesn't want dog at home
Dear Amy: For the past 2 ½ years my son (now 9) has been asking for a dog. I’ve been saying no because while I like dogs, I prefer them in other people’s houses.
I didn’t want to take on the considerable expense and care for a dog.
Four months ago, I had a brain aneurysm. Thankfully, I am OK and recovering. However, during my recovery in the hospital I thought I was dying and that it would be a good idea for my son to have a dog to love and care for in the event that I did die.
I was coming off of anesthesia and on a lot of pain medication. I feel confident in saying that at the time, I was not in my right mind.

How Doctors And The Church Conspired To Stop An 11-Year-Old Girl From Having An Abortion After Rape
SAN MIGUEL DE TUCUMÁN, Argentina — Lucía sat up in her hospital bed as the priest made the sign of the cross on her forehead, the 11-year-old’s bulging belly visible underneath her pajama shirt.
“Think long and hard about what you’re considering doing,” Lucía’s mother remembered the priest telling them. “Save both lives,” he said.
Lucía wasn’t sure what the priest was talking about. She only knew her grandmother’s partner had done something bad to her and now she had a terrible stomachache.
The priest was just one of a constant stream of people, including government officials, who came to the hospital in February to coerce Lucía into giving birth. But Lucía, who still had some of her baby teeth, only had one thing on her mind as she begged the adults around her in between crying fits: Take out the thing the old man put in me.
Her visitors refused.

Parkland Students Share Mental Health Resources to Support Each Other
After two Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students died by apparent suicides in the span of just a week, current and former students at the school are calling on the Parkland community to support its young people with mental health services. On social media, survivors are reminding us of the supports available when you're having a hard time.
Anti-gun violence activist David Hogg, who graduated from Stoneman Douglas in 2018, took to Twitter in the wake of his classmates' deaths, saying that the trauma endured after a mass shooting doesn't fade quickly.
"Stop saying you’ll get over it,'" he wrote. "You don’t get over something that never should have happened because those that die from gun violence are stolen from us not naturally lost. Trauma and loss don’t just go away, you have to learn to live with it through getting support."
