              Mom Sentenced to 3 Years After Son, 7, Dies From Strep Throat Because She Didn't Take Him to Doctor

              5 hours ago

              A Canada mother was sentenced to three years in prison on Saturday after her seven-year-old, who was suffering from severe strep, died because she did not take him to the doctor.

              Tamara Lovett, 48, from Calgary was convicted in January of criminal negligence causing death of her son Ryan Lovett, reports said.

              “Ryan suffered terribly from this inaction,” Justice Kristine Eidsvik said. “He died an excruciating, unnecessary death.”

              Ryan was bed ridden at home for 10 days in March 2013. During that time, Lovett gave him dandelion tea and oil of oregano to treat his infection.

              Ryan's symptoms included swollen lymph nodes, oozing ears and jaundiced eyes at the time of his death, reports said.

              The infection caused the organs in his body to fail. Lovett said she thought he had a cold or a flu.

              Eidsvik said during the trial that Lovett "gambled away" Ryan's life by treating him herself and not seeking medical help.

              Lovett admitted during the proceeding that what she did was wrong, and the court acknowledged her grief and suffering, reports said.

              “Her remorse, I believe, is genuine,' Eidsvik reportedly said during the hearing.

              Defense lawyer Alain Hepner had argued the case should be dismissed because it took too long from the time Lovett was arrested until her conviction in January.

              The Supreme Court of Canada set out a 30-month time frame for superior court cases to go to trial in what has become known as the Jordan decision. The high court, however, has allowed some flexibility for cases in which charges were laid before its order in July 2016.


              Lovett's case took 38 months.

              "The parties were clearly operating under the old regime," she said. "In my view, it would not be just to set aside a conviction here and enter a stay."

              I can see why she might have thought that it was a flu or just a cold but if it took longer then 2 days she should definitely have brought him to the doctor it was very irresponsible of her to play doctor with her childs life.

              A Dance To Die For: The Mysterious Phenomenon Of Medieval Europe That Drove People To ....

              "Before the world was struck with Beatlemania–much, much before, for that matter―a different kind of craze swept through Europe, one that would reveal ties to demonic forces, religious cults, and hallucinogenic drugs.

              "The Dancing Mania was a strange social phenomenon that escapes clear explanation to this day. It was recorded throughout the history of the Middle Ages, with earliest accounts dating from the 7th century.

              "The symptoms varied, but there was one constant―those “infected” would move in groups, performing something similar to dancing as their bodies twitched with spasms, leaving an observer with a sense of dread. People who engaged in this activity didn’t seem to be aware of themselves. As if in some sort of trance, sometimes the dancing mania would possess a person for days, weeks, and in some cases months. This was no joking matter, as the people afflicted by this peculiar obsession would sometimes die of exhaustion or hunger.

              "In 1237, in Erfurt, Germany, a group of children showed signs of the dancing mania, as they traveled the 13 miles to the nearby town of Arnstadt, dancing and jumping throughout their journey. Once they reached their destination, they fell to the ground, as a result of exhaustion.

              "A chronicle that perhaps dates from the time of the event claims that most of the children died soon afterward, and the ones who survived fell into a state of permanent mental illness accompanied by tremors."

                  ________________________________________________________________________

                  "Certainly, Blickling Hall is one of the most beautiful historic residences; however, that is not the only reason for its popularity. For years, it has been described as the most haunted house in England. The ghost of Anne Boleyn is mostly responsible for that. Many people claim to have seen her arriving in the house in a carriage driven by a headless horseman and headless horses. She is clothed in a white dress and carries her severed head. Once Anne gets to the house, she roams the entire night until the sun comes out.

                  "Allegedly, this happens every year on the 19th of May, the day when Anne was beheaded, which is also the day when the number of visitors to the house is greatest. The other ghosts people claim to have seen at Blickling Hall are Anne’s brother, George, her father, Sir Thomas Boleyn, and the English knight who once owned the property, Sir John Falstolf."

                  Race, Discrimination And Bigotry In Islam

                      "In today’s world, racism has integrated itself into the core fabric of social structures that govern our modern day societies. It has manifested into one of the most prevalent diseases plaguing human communities today. Not one day goes by where you pick up a newspaper or put on a news channel or tune into the radio, and you are not bombarded with news of racial discrimination, violence, war and terror. One cannot help but wonder about the triggers of such tragic instances prevailing across the globe.

                      "Contrary to popular Western belief, Islam strictly rejects the whole notion of racism and condemns it to its very core. The religion of Islam stands on a solid foundation based on the concept of mutual love and brotherhood, which in essence, out rightly rejects discrimination based on color, race, ethnicity, blood, power or any man-made distinctions, for that matter.

                      "All were created equal in the eyes of Allah (SWT). Islam out rightly rejects favoritism be it in terms of monetary privileges or biological differences. The only distinguishing factors among individuals is their level of faith and piety.

                      “O mankind, We have created you from a male and a female and have made you into nations and tribes for you to know one another. Truly, the noblest of you with God is the most pious. Truly, God is All-Knowing, All-Aware” (Quran, 49:13)

                      "Equality and justice in Islam leaves no room for injustice and racism to exist. During the Prophet’s (PBUH) time, the problem of racism was purposefully eliminated so the concept of superiority was only valid when it came to a person’s level of fear of Allah (SWT) and his righteousness. Islam places great emphasis on the concept of brotherhood among humans, irrespective of their characteristics and position. Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) highlighted this matter in his last sermon as well, where he said:

                      “O people! Your God is one and your forefather (Adam) is one. An Arab is not better than a non-Arab and a non-Arab is not better than an Arab, and a red (i.e. white tinged with red) person is not better than a black person and a black person is not better than a red person, except in piety” (Musnad Ahmad, 22978)"

                      How Do Muslims Conduct Funerals And Mourn The Dead?

                          Death is a very painful and emotional time, yet spiritual faith may allow it to be one that is filled with hope and mercy. Muslims believe that death is a departure from the life of this world, but not the end of a person's existence. Rather, they believe that eternal life is yet to come, and pray for God's mercy to be with the departed, in hopes that they may find peace and happiness in the life that is yet to come.

                          CARE FOR THE DYING

                          When a Muslim is near death, those around him or her are called upon to give comfort and reminders of God's mercy and forgiveness. They may recite verses from the Qu'ran, give physical comfort, and encourage the dying one to recite words of remembrance and prayer. It is recommended, if at all possible, for a Muslim's last words to be the declaration of faith: "I bear witness that there is no god but Allah."

                          IMMEDIATELY UPON DEATH

                          Upon death, those with the deceased are encouraged to remain calm, pray for the departed and begin preparations for burial. The eyes of the deceased should be closed and the body covered temporarily with a clean sheet. It is forbidden for those in mourning to excessively wail, scream or thrash about. Grief is normal when one has lost a loved one, however, and it is natural and permitted to cry. When the Prophet Muhammad's own son died, he said: "The eyes shed tears and the heart is grieved, but we will not say anything except which pleases our Lord." This means one should strive to be patient, and remember that Allah is the One who gives life and takes it away, at a time appointed by Him.

                          Muslims strive to bury the deceased as soon as possible after death, which eliminates the need for embalming or otherwise disturbing the body of the deceased. An autopsy may be performed, if necessary, but should be done with the utmost respect for the dead.

                              Talking to Kids About Children With Disabilities

                              Mom's Message After Overhearing a Parent at Chick-Fil-A Talk About Her Boy With Disabilities


                              After a potentially painful and uncomfortable encounter, Leah Carroll has a message to the mom-of-three who was at Chick-fil-A with her three kids. Leah wants this fellow parent to know that she overheard the questions, saw the stares, and was blown away by her response.

                              "I sensed your panic when your 5-year-old son pointed at my son in his wheelchair and shouted, 'Mom look at THAT boy!'' Leah shared on Love What Matters Facebook page. "You leaned forward and quietly told him and his 3-year-old brother that we don't say things like that and they shouldn't point or stare."


                              Leah waited because she knew in most cases, telling a child not to stare or question her child's differences doesn't work because young, curious minds have questions that they want answered. "When you realized your whispers weren't working I saw the panic disappear and you took a deep breath and took a step of courage," she wrote. "You brought your boys over to Malachi and said 'I bet he would like to know your names!'"

                              Leah explained that as they said their names to Malachi, her child started grinning and chatting with the kids and that this interaction was more important than this amazing mom could've realized.

                              The joy on his face brought tears to my eyes- he loves kids his age but so many are fearful to come and speak to him. Your boys continued to ask questions about his foot braces, his wheelchair, why his legs don't work, why he holds his mouth open like that.
                              You took the time to educate your sons in that moment and help them understand that different is okay. Different is not something to fear. And that it was okay to ask questions! Thank you for giving my son a chance to meet your kids.
                              Thank you for being the type of mom who educates your children instead of frantically trying to silence them. Special needs moms have to develop tough skin — we get used to stares, comments, and whispers. Please know it takes a lot to offend us, particularly when the comments are coming from young children. Give your kids the same grace we give them and use the opportunity to teach them about differences.
                              So Chick-Fil-A mom, thank you for raising your children to embrace children like Malachi. And thank you for giving my son something to smile about."


                              This lady did the right thing to talk to her sons about this and that her children didn't point their fingers at Malachi, they made his day I am pretty sure of that Bless their hearts.
