The following article reports a decrease in prison recidivism in the US due to engagement in evidenced-based programs.  The most recent statistics are from 2016. Let’s hope this trend continues!

Plus, here’s a feel good video about the patience of a grocery store worker who helps a teen with autism.

  1. This is certainly good news to read. Sure hope this trend, gains momentum.

    • Yes! Gaining momentum would be great! Thanks, Yvonne. How are you?

      • I am doing ok, after a very serious trip to the ER via ambulance. I think I accidently over dosed on my afib med and on my BP med. My BP dipped quite low. It was discovered in ER that I had 123,00 WBC in my urine. I had no idea I was almost septic and living with an infection that was going to kill me. MD said there might be more going on and ordered contrast dye, cat scan. I had a pretty bad reaction to the dye. So, I had those three things plus fluid in my lungs- and that is a mystery there. I had been coughing some but did not know it was serious. I am a tough little woman so I had merely been coping with how bad I felt. I received 2 IV of rocephin for the UTI, two litters of fluid, something to counteract the dye reaction, and some meds to bring up my BP and O2 because my O2 sat dropped into the 80’s. I was in hospital for thee days. That was about 2 weeks ago. I had one more IM of rocephin. Meds I take cause me to feel fatigued. Aren’t you sorry that you asked? 🙂 All in all I am much better. It seems my low BP saved my life. 🙂

        • Well, I’m NOT sorry I asked. But sheesh! That’s a lot to go through. I guess theres’s such a thing as being too tough when it comes to merely coping. I’ve heard about those sneaky UTIs and how they can mess up a person’s thinking. It’s a good reminder to get things checked out. I’m glad you’re more stable now and hope you keep feeling better. Take care, dear Yvonne. ❤ ❤ ❤
