wow, i guess i got lucky! cause i diagnosed myself with this two years ago when i got really sick, right before i was in the hospital's isolation room for days (the doctors thought it might have been meningococcal meningitis). hope your little one didn't have the symptoms i had (104 fever, and bedridden)


Leah and Katie had this years ago, and I was trying to figure out what on earth it was, when I figured it to be 5th (I did do a diagnosis via the internet as well as via more experienced moms). I was telling James all about it over dinner and he was looking at me with a funny look. I said, "What are you staring at?" He said, "Have you looked in the mirror lately?" Sure enough - I had it! I was glad I got it then, because a few months later I got pregnant with Jared.

Right now firefox automatically downloads an mp3 and opens it. I want it to prompt me with the dialog box so I can choose where to save it. I've looked in options->downloads->view and edit actions and there is nothing set there that I can change..
