Usually when you hear "pack your bags, get out the door," it means you're getting kicked out. But to 3-year-old Hadley Gray, it was music to her ears -- literally. Hadley was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia at her two-and-a-half year check up, her mom, Brittany Edgeworth Gray, told CBS News. The toddler has spent the past six months at Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, where she received chemotherapy treatment and lost all of her curly brown hair. Last Thursday, the staff at Saint Jude kicked Hadley out of the hospital -- in the sweetest way possible. A group of doctors and nurses walked into Hadley's room holding balloons and confetti and singing a song. "Our patients have the cutest S-M-I-L-E. Our patients have the sweetest H-E-A-R-T. Oh, we love to see you every day. But now's the time we get to say, pack up your bags, get out the door, you don't get chemo any more," the group of staff serenaded the 3-year-old. Hadley has been living at Saint Jude … [Read more...] about Staff sends 3-year-old home from hospital with a song celebrating end of chemo

The boys drop everything when they hear the garage door open. "Daddy's here!" Grayson exclaims, sprinting to the door. Josh Ledbetter, an account executive at a software company in Chattanooga, walks in and reaches out for a hug, but Grayson turns away, playing hard to get. "I always joke that Josh is the … [Read more...] about Ooltewah family fights to find cure for 5-year-old boy [photos]
Barbara Bush, former first lady of George H.W. Bush, died Tuesday at 92. The couple's love story spanned nearly eight decades. When asked what the secret to their enduring love was, Barbara said it was keeping a sense of humor. George Herbert Walker Bush and Barbara Pierce met in 1941 at a school dance. He was 17. She was just 16. He told a friend she was the most beautiful girl on the dance floor. Barbara was just 19 when she married her Navy pilot, home on leave from World War II, reports CBS News' Jim Axelrod. Barbara Bush remembered: Presidents, political leaders pay tribute to former first lady "I married the first man I ever kissed," Barbara used to say. "When I tell this to my children, they just about throw up." And while they did their best to keep pace with modern life over the next 73 years, the two remained an old-fashioned love story. "I fell in love with him practically at first sight, probably. Went home and told my mother about him. She should … [Read more...] about A look back at Barbara and George H.W. Bush’s epic love story

I've gotten use to the new style, and it works just fine. posted on 25 May 2017, 10:07 0 3. bucknassty (Posts: 452; Member since: 24 Mar 2017) Jedii, that is my biggest fear, and one reason why i stayed with samsung. are you able to adjust the vibration feedback strength (length) posted on 25 May 2017, 10:25 0 6. Clars123 (Posts: 1002; Member since: 16 Mar 2015) the feedback itself isn't adjustable as far as I've seen..but you can adjust the pressure needed to trigger it so you do it more assuredly. In my opinion, it isn't very localized to the active area as I would like but it works better than regular haptics regardless. 27. sgtdisturbed47 (Posts: 863; Member since: 02 Feb 2012) The haptic feedback is certainly better than what it was but it's not nearly as "clicky" as the iPhone feedback. Hopefully the Note 8 will improve upon this. posted on 25 May … [Read more...] about Comments for : Are you missing the mechanical home button on the Samsung Galaxy S8?
