A day in the life

We found out today that our home nurse has some health problems. We’d ask that you all keep her (her name is Sharon) in your prayers. We hope that nothing serious is wrong. We nearly had a heart attack just a few moments ago. Namine is in bed, and she probably didn’t fall asleep too […]

Nightly roundup

Well, kids, no new news. As far as I know, my grandpa is still in the hospital. Nothing on what might be wrong, other than a bad ear infection. As for my mother-in-law, she probably should have gone back to the ER tonight. She’s got bruises where she didn’t before, with no explanation for them, […]

A Tale of Two Hospital Visits

So Jessica and I picked her up yesterday evening, and on the way home, about 35 minutes after we’d left the hospital, my mom called me […]

I also wanted to be able to display all comments, whether you commented from inside FB or from […]

Quality time in the ER

Well, kids, it’s been another exciting day. Jessica’s mom is in the hospital again. She was complaining of chest pains, so off to the ER again. Lots of waiting and one CT scan later, it was determined that it was her heart, and not her lungs. Beyond that, I couldn’t tell you. As usual, they […]

Clinic Day

Namine had clinic visits galore today. She had a swallow study, determining how well she can eat and drink; a pre-surgery meeting with Dr. Denny, her plastic surgeon; and a visit to GI (gastrointestinal).

Poopiness

Well I don’t know where to begin.  Namine started with just more secretions and a slight fever at the beginning of the which grew to no fever, but vomiting and diarrhea like crazy.  She has had probably about 7 blowouts since Friday.  We have talked with her pulmanologist and the regular pediatrician and now the special needs doctor.  Needless to say she might have to go in for at least fluids which might be a couple of hours or a couple of days depending on Namine.
