Not too busy to buckle

The week after Spring Break is always a hard transition in my household. It is like a taste of summer hours - we stay outside until dark, go to bed late, and get up at 7:30am (which is late in our house!). So when reality hits and we get back to our school days routine, we inevitably have a few bumpy mornings.

Get control of your allergies

Spring is officially here. The flowers, trees, and weather say so. I can remember making all my friends and relatives jealous when I first moved down to Georgia because of the early spring weather. You can gloat a little when you are sitting on your front porch enjoying the sunshine and breeze and everyone in New Jersey is still wearing their long underwear and down coats.

The importance of SLEEP

Let's admit it - we all dread the week that just passed. The "springing forward" is always harder than the "falling back." Regardless of the promise of more daylight and spring being right around the corner, Daylight Savings Time is like a mild case of jet lag - which is why my 3-, almost 4-year-old is not going to sleep until after 9 p.m. It usually takes my family at least a week to adjust and we are all a little cranky about it.

Discounted mammograms available

The Women's Diagnostic Center is offering mammograms at a reduced cost during October and November.

October 05, 2013 | Danielle Everson | Health


What mammograms show

Most screening mammograms include two views of each breast taken from different angles. Diagnostic mammograms involve taking more views than screening mammograms. Even if you have a lump in only one breast, pictures will be taken of both breasts. This is so the breasts can be compared and so that the other breast can be checked for abnormalities. If you've had a mammogram before, the radiologist should compare your old mammogram to the new one to look for changes.
