This would hopefully shrink the pregnancy and save my tube. Her management rescheduled some shows, but then, the singer reveals that on October 28, 11 days after receiving the shot, My tube started to rupture and I was experiencing internal bleeding. She went to the E.R., where she underwent surgery to remove her entire right fallopian tube. Noting that her left tube and her ovaries are still perfectly healthy, Carlton added that her doctor theorized that an appendectomy that she had when she was 12 might have produced scar tissue that affected her right tube, causing the ectopic pregnancy. In case you are a woman with a past appendectomy definitely take note, she wrote. Vanessa Carlton Talks New Musical Projects But Carltons troubles didnt end there. The singer then says that she started getting intense nerve pain in one of her surgical incisions, and thus canceled her November dates in Vancouver, Bellingham, Portland and Seattle. She plans to perform November 13 in San Francisco. Im so bummed about having to jank up this tour.

Teen pregnancy prevention campaign launches in Tulsa
Rupa Silva, and APSCO CEO and President Larry Mocha Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy Posted: Thursday, November 7, 2013 5:00 pm Larry Mocha has a problem. The president and CEO of APSCO, a Tulsa-based manufacturing company, said his business is growing. Thats a problem most business owners want to have, of course, but Mocha said Tulsa doesnt have the workforce to support his companys growth. Weve got to do a better job with our young people, he said. His comments were occasioned by this week by a luncheon at downtowns Hyatt Regency hotel, which marked the official launch in Tulsa of the Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy. The campaigns Executive Director Kim Schutz noted that, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Oklahoma is 4th in the nation for teen births and 2nd for births to mothers 18 and 19 years old. Thank God for Mississippi, she said, referencing the only state in the nation with higher 18 and 19-year-old birth rates than the Sooner State. The problem is even more acute in Tulsa, though. Specific zip codes in Tulsa have birth rates that are more than twice the national average, so we know that our city is particularly affected, Shutz added. Teen pregnancy isnt typically among the range of problems with which business leaders like Mocha grapple in their daily operations, so it tends to be regarded as a social rather than economic issue. Yet, the local economic impact of teenaged childbearing is $38 million annually, Shutz explained, and it costs Oklahoma taxpayers at least $190 million a year. It also takes a toll on the workforce. The statistics are staggering, said Dr. Cathy Burden, former superintendent of Union Public Schools. Citing the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, she said only 40 percent of teenaged mothers complete high school, and less than 2 percent complete college by the age of 30. A high school diploma is the minimum preparation for a career, Burden noted. Also, teen birth sets a cycle in motion for generational poverty, she added. The children born to teen moms are 50 percent more likely to have to repeat a grade, and they are far less likely to complete high school than the children of older moms, said Burden. Also, she said that almost none of the children identified for gifted programs were born to teenaged parents. As a business owner and Tulsan, I care deeply about the economic prosperity of Tulsa and the state of Oklahoma.
