Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

7 minutes ago, BitterApple said:

If God forbid, anything happened to Derelict and Jill, the boys would be much better off with the Dillards. Cathy's a nutter, but at least her brand of crazy believes in education.

Hasn’t Cathy been on the homeschooling wagon lately per Twitter?  I think it’s more likely first hubby was holding back the crazy and we can’t judge Derick’s childhood as how Cathy would raise her grandbabies today.

Yes, my father had quadruple bypass surgery, and before he had it, they had him get a complete oral exam (he didn't even have teeth) and a letter from dentist before they would do it.

I think if anything were to happen to Jill, Derick would dump the kids on the nearest relative's doorstep and high-tail it back to Nepal.

He’d importune Jana to replace Jill.

Ha ha ha! This comment reminds me of the movie, “Fill the Void.” A Hasidic girl is pressured by her family to marry her brother in law after her sister dies in childbirth. They didn’t want the brother in law to move the child out of the country, so that was their solution. I can see Michelle approaching Jana in her creepy baby voice, “Jana, Izzy and that other one already love you so much. It’s what Jilly Muffin would’ve wanted.”

I think you're right. College and Nepal were Derick's glory days.

We were so excited to get to meet cousin Garrett David Duggar soon after his arrival!  Israel and Samuel are excited to have a new cousin!  We are so happy for Joe (Jill’s brother) and Kendra (his wife) on their first little one!  He was born June 8th, 2018 weighing 7lbs. 8oz. and was 20.5 inches long.  Here are some pictures from the day we met little Garrett.

I know this is the Duggars, but I would not want little toddler petri dishes all over my newborn. I'm surprised children that young are even allowed to visit.

From the looks of Derwood's pits, Jill has been using this hack, too!

My husband has been complaining about unwanted attention from the neighborhood dogs. I wonder if this is also a problem for Derick, or if his repellant personality is enough to keep them away.

I have to see that sounds interesting.

Why did Grandma Cathy have to be there? It's not her grandbaby.

I’ll give the judgemental ol’  bitch a pass since most people want to visit a new baby and I’m sure she’s well acquainted with Kendra.  Even if she’s not, she should be familiar with Joe and it’s his kid too.  I hate to say this, but I think it’s actually nice of her to do so.  And an extra grandma/babysitter is always welcome.

I’ve been to hospitals were young children were prohibited , and others where they were not. It’s not ideal, and I wouldn’t really be down. Depending on how often Izzy goes to the TTH, how germ-ridden can he be? It’s not like he goes to school.  I don’t see Sam though. I wonder if he went too.  Since he can’t cover his mouth yet to cough/sneeze, I’d be more worried about him.

The hospital where I practice used to ask that no children under 12 be allowed to visit the maternity floor except for siblings.  They got so many negative comments about the policy as well as a lot of grief from people who didn't care about the rules and brought the kids up anyway, that they dropped the policy.  Now, it is a free for all at visiting time, often a dozen or more people crammed into the room including kids.  Ridiculous.  Of course, the postpartum rooms are all private and the babies now room with their mothers virtually 24/7; so at least other people's babies aren't exposed to the germs.  There is a sign at the entrance asking that no sick kids visit and with hand sanitizer for everyone to use and masks for anyone with a cold.  Seems to be mostly ignored though, people are pretty inconsiderate really.

We also used to restrict visitors on labor and delivery to two people besides the parents, no switching back and forth.  Once again, multiple complaints.  Now, as many people as can cram into the room can be there, the staff is expected to work around them.  Sometimes, I feel like we should set up bleachers and sell tickets.  The other night, I was doing surgery until around 11 PM.  I stopped up on L&D to talk to a friend.  There were multiple preschool aged kids running around the waiting area and at least 2 kids in patient rooms who were crying/whining (not newborns).  It was a circus and it boggles the mind to see how many people think it is perfectly acceptable to bring their little kids out in public in the middle of the night and let them run wild.

BTW, insurance companies and the government peg hospital reimbursements to the scores on the patient surveys which is why the hospitals are forced to cave to the lowest common denominator.  No matter what someone complains about, it is a complaint and counts against the score.  And, yes, we have had people complain that the food wasn't good enough, that their significant other didn't get a regular bed instead of a fold out, that we didn't have HDTV and DVR's in the room (we do now) or that they didn't get various and sundry other amenities during their stay.

It's really weird, but does anyone else think Jill looks more natural with other peoples' children than she does her own? I remember when Jessa visited her in Danger America and Jill was super affectionate towards Spurgeon but never seemed to be that way with Izzy. I notice the same vibe here. She looks really maternal with Garrett in the above picture but not so much with Sam.

On a side note, Garrett is a beautiful baby.

Yes, and probably something else she learned from Michelle.

I managed to get myself blocked by Cathy on Twitter, even though I haven't commented on anything that she was tagged in.  I have a sneaking suspicion she didn't like my tweet to Muffin.  And to the banning I say...suck it.  And good luck finding my other handle.

That’s the pullout couch bed.  I’m guessing Joe was sleeping on it in the hospital and they didn’t put it back in the couch shape because it gave people more room to sit.  We had the exact one in a different hospital in another state.

Thanks, that makes sense. My son and DIL had one, but it was folded up when we got there.

My ex-husband applied for a State Department job years ago and they asked him about having been with a group of kids who were stopped and talked to by the police for setting off fireworks. Not arrested, just talked to, and they were juveniles.  The FBI also came to my work (in California; he was in Ohio) and interviewed me about his character. They know everything. Dreck's twitting would definitely be uncovered, deleted or not.

When DH had his background check, they interviewed our neighbors unannounced. They walked up and knocked on their doors. More than a little creepy.

If I were Kendra or Joe, I’d be more worried about Derick holding the baby near his nasty pits than about Izzy or Sammy.

I was wondering since Jilly Bean can't be away from Derelick because, you know, women in scrubs may defraud him, that they asked Cathy to come to the hospital with them, so while Jill and Dullard were visiting with Izzy, Cathy was outside in a different area with Sammy.  Then she could visit and Sammy was with J and D.

That looks like the same outfit on Jill that she was wearing hiking.   Cathy had the boys for their anniversary.   I wonder if this was the same weekend and Cathy met them at the hospital.

The timing doesn't line up. Garrett was born 6/8, their anniversary is 6/21.

That explains why my 60 plus yo gray haired self is totally ignored in general surgical waiting rooms and emergency rooms and waiting rooms in general.  Even if I do kinda complain about the noise and the kids running wild.  Over the past 4 years I have sat in waiting  rooms for  25 plus surgeries or major procedures plus too many ER room and  office visits to count.  Being a patient good guy can be filled with tensions and anxiety!  I guess I have sorta complained about the wrong things!

This is why I left hospital nursing. My primary obligation as an RN should be to keep my patients safe, but nowadays it’s to keep them happy. This is fine when the two don’t conflict, but often they do and the administration caves to patient demands anyway. The final straw was when I had a woman who had already fallen once during her stay (for folks who don’t know, falls in hospitals are a big deal and also count against certification and reimbursement rates) complain to the administration about the fact that I kept reminding her not to get up without having a nurse or aide standing by. I got admonished by my nurse manager for providing “poor customer service.” Screw that. Hospitals all over the country are having a terrible time finding qualified nurses, and IMHO this is why.

Good lord that statement reads like a second grader forced to write about their summer vacation,  (We were so excited to go to Disney. We were so happy to go on many rides. We met friends and had fun")    And so robotic, the only emotion is the use of a couple exclamation points - wonder which one of them wrote it and how long it took to compose.  I'd also compare it to something you write when you're forced to buy the greeting card that's blank inside and have to come up with your own message but have no creativity or writing ability or something your five year old dictates to you so you can write out their thank you card to Grandma after she mailed them a hand knitted sweater for their birthday.

Is Jill wearing jean shorts (again)? Are those her new "look"? Wow, sleeveless, only one modesty insert, and a pierced nose (that is a piercing, right? or a wart?).

Best news is: hair off her face. And they all look clean.
