BEVERLY, MA - Judy Brown, 47, has been married to her husband, Jason, for over 22 years. They did not have any children - not that they didn't want any, but it just didn't happen. And now that she's getting older, her body is changing. She has less energy and has packed on a few pounds like most people approaching 50. But in the beginning of November, Judy was having some abdominal pain and it was getting worse. Thinking that it might be a blockage of some kind, she went to the hospital on November 4. After examining her, the doctor said he had some good news for her. There was no blockage!
That was a relief. But he also said that immediate action would have to be taken. Why? Because she was pregnant and the baby was coming right away! Since Judy had never been pregnant before, she didn't realize there was a baby inside her. Shortly after that, Carolyn Rose was born - a healthy 8-pound gift from God!
STATEN ISLAND, NY - A 13-year-old autistic boy, Brandon Wiliams, saw one of his classmates (Jessica) choking terribly. Brandon rushed into action, performing the Heimlich Maneuver, and most likely saving her life. One of his teachers asked him where he had learned to do that. Brandon quickly responded, "SpongeBob SquarePants".
ROCHESTER, WA - Veronica Castillo was playing a casino game called Jurassic Riches at the Lucky Eagle Casino. She kept playing for hours, spending nearly $100. But towards the end of her time she started to rack up the points and the dollar amount kept increasing until she stopped playing. The final total was $8,589,298.89! Wow! She spent $100 and won over $8.5 million! Not bad for a day's work! Wait a minute. Hold everything. A casino official told her that the machine had malfunctioned. The casino spokesman said that the maximum jackpot on that game was $20,000. Well at least Veronica got $20,000, right? Wrong. The casino ended up giving her only $80! She actually lost money. Now she has a lawyer because the casino wasn't going to do anything else about it. Time will tell if the casino's gamble pays off. I think not.
