I think parenthood is an amazing thing. I think there is a silent bond between parents that seems to go beyond race and religion.

I have 2 girls 5 and 2. Both had problems with ear infections. My youngest just had tubes put in her ears last month.

As a Canadian with universal health care, I can't imagine not being able to afford the operation or the pre and post follow up appointments.

It's not a perfect system though. We pay high taxes and have long wait times. I used to complain about these things, but honestly they are only minor inconveniences.

I hope that the U.S gets their health care act together soon. I don't have first hand knowledge of how your system works, just what is portrayed in the media.

All I know is that as a parent money should be the last thing on my mind when taking care of my sick kids.

You have a great blog here Democratdad keep it up.
