Time for some rest for both of you! Make sure you stay on top of her pain, you heal slower if you are fighting pain.

on edit...I should say all of you, DH and DD#1 had a rough time, too!

How well I know that. And pain leaves you exhausted.

Thank you. She has percocet for the pain if it gets bad. So far she has only needed advil.

I have been praying to get a call back to my temp job and finally got the call. I start tomorrow but I must say the timing stinks. It is second shift.

I guess I better take a look at my electric bill and see what a kWh costs and bring a calculator. I can get a comparison from the Energy Star ratings.

We were just going to look, but we found a Panasonic 1.6 cubic ft in stainless steel at Walmart for $169.77, so we bought it. It will just fit where we have the old one. I checked the dimensions on the web using my iPhone. Don' ya just love technology?

The ES label tells you all you need to know, comparing the model you are looking at to all other models in the same category.

I don't think it shows the operating cost in dollars on the Canadian ones.
