Have a "hero" in my family, my youngest lad was driving his builders merchant delivery lorry and going slow over the brow of a steep hill when he saw a police man getting beaten up. Slapped the brakes on and ran over to help as someone else went running past him and knocked the copper and his attacker flying so he jumped on the bloke and held his arms as the other person sat on his chest and a third held his feet. Then the cavalry arrived . Made the front page of the local paper.

@davina61
Dear Davina:  Thank you for posting this.  Yes, there are some good people out there.  Many would be good Samaritans are often told to call the police and let them handle it....  in the scenario that you just mentioned it would be way too late and who knows what more harm the perpetrator could have done without the young lad's intervention.

This reminds me of a saying that I have heard here on the forums and elsewhere....
       "When seconds matter, cops are only minutes away."

Again Davina, thank you for sharing...
Hugs,
Danielle

The policeman was slightly built and as my lad put it the attacker was built like a brick s**t house!!!!! My lad would have made a good policeman, he wanted to be a fireman but has/had a dodgy knee after a bike crash so he became a first responder for our rural area. That's a first aider with a defib . Its what I would expect from him.

Davina your son put his own safety at risk but did the right thing.  You raised him well and I bet you're justifiably proud.

Davina he is a hero...I agree...I bet the copper was plenty happy he showed up otherwise he may not have gone home at all that night. All comes back to your sons sense of right and wrong and they place he most likely got it from was you. You can both take a bow

Went this morning to see daughter, house is a mess as redoing interior and front room in new plaster. Grandson took a while to come round and stop clinging to mum but started playing with his tractor. 5 1/2 weeks till new one due and they are desperate to get the house sorted. Tea time now so doing aubergine dish before it goes bad, its been in fridge for a week-----

Got my blood test results, T is 0.4 and it says oestradiol so I take that as E 297 pmol/L . Don't know how that compares to normal levels?

Had a good day working on my van and got a lot done, burnt my arm with a weld spatter and it rubs as on inside. Damn left my phone on the side and cant go back now . Down there tomorrow again to fit front suspension and steering. Debbie says my short hair makes me look younger and I should wear it all the time , that's the one in my avatar. The longer one is quite ginger , was supposed to be darker but miss ordered from swatch on website. She has offered to do my eyes for Friday for festival so might have a new avatar (about time!)

Dear Davinia
Looking forward to seeing you with long golden red tresses (ginger). Hope the splatter marks heal quickly - I remember when I used to weld / could weld what that was like, even small amounts can be somewhat painful.
Yes website swatches are usually awful - lots of sites 'rent' you actual swatches, and that is a must to do especially for the medium to expensive wigs.

Hope you have a good time Friday

Luv n Hugz

Katie

No units on the T but it appears to be in the lower feminine range. E would be about 80 pg/ml which should be enough to make things happen. It's not overly high but it's above the menopause range where I am being held.


ESTRADIOL LEVELS
SEX                     pg/ml
Women (> 18 years old)   
      Follicular Phase  30-120
      Ovulatory Peak   130-370
      Luteal Phase      70-250
      Post-Menopausal   15-60
Male                    15-60

TOTAL TESTOSTERONE LEVELS
SEX      ng/dl        ng/ml
Females  6 - 86     0.1 - 1.2
Males  270 - 1100   2.4 - 12
Conversion factor: 1 ng/ml = 3.47 nmol/l

Ouch that sounds painful!!Weld burn...double ouch

I was just reading back over your last few posts and I can see you have been having some fun. As far as hair style's go...sounds like you should give the short hair a go, it obviously suits you.

Will keep a look out for that new avatar

Hello Davina

Just to let you know that KathyLauren started a thread Unit Conversions on HRT Board (which I added to) concerning converting US Units to International Units and vice versa and it was last updated 30June and hence is on page 3 of HRT Board.

Take a look and I hope it gives you some useful information concerning E and T readings.

Hugs

Pamela
