  • An ear miss

    An ear miss

    Oh, don’t look at me like that. I couldn’t help it. Anyway, Namine had an impromptu ENT clinic visit yesterday. The night before, we thought we saw some drainage, much to our dismay. So we took her in.

    Improvement

    Last week Namine had another (yes, another) ENT clinic appointment. Since Jessica was busy being The Amazing Human Taxi for her mom, it fell to me to take the munchkin to the hospital. Of course, I’d gladly do so anyway.

    If the glass has any liquid at all

    You hear that there are two kinds of people: “glass half full,” and “glass half empty.” Which kind you are, well, that could be determined by your personality type. But experiences can change people, and it would easy – too easy, perhaps – to allow negative experiences to change a positive person into a negative one.

    School’s out

    Jessica and I have decided to pull Namine out of school.

    Making cookies

    Yesterday we went over to Jessica’s mom’s apartment to make cookies. And oh, did we make cookies! Namine had a blast.

    Namine has physical therapy.

  • Potty time

    Potty time

    I haven’t had the chance to post anything lately other than updates on Namine’s ear goings-on. But now that she’s on some medication once again, she seems to be doing well. She’s still got a little drainage and bleeding, but it no longer seems to be out of control as it was last week. Namine has started potty training and it is more her idea than ours.

  • Pending ear surgery?

    Pending ear surgery?

    Namine needing surgery on her ear is not a sure thing, not yet at least. After yet another ENT visit today, though, I think they’re as tired as we are. But I think no one is quite as tired of this as Namine. She threw up when she saw the doctor.

  • The stresses of doctors

    The stresses of doctors

    Do you believe in coincidence? I tend not to. Namine threw up again today in the same situation as last time, which brings me to the conclusion that it’s not something she ate – last time I thought it was eggs – but rather the circumstance: the doctor’s office.

    Fall Pictures

    Our friend Stephanie (who is an awesome photographer) loves to take pictures of Namine. Well, how about that — we love to show pictures of Namine. Sounds like a perfect mix. Check ’em out.

  • Trick or treating

    Trick or treating

    Holy late post, Batman! I meant to post about Halloween a while ago, but we’ve been kept busy with sickness and doctor appointments. So here, finally, I’ve finished writing about when we went trick or treating. (All things considered, I’m glad I was able to get the post out within a month of it happening.)

  • Tossing cookies

    Tossing cookies

    I’m not talking about juggling confectionary treats, nosirree. We suspect that Namine has caught a bug of some kind, possibly flu. It is her bad luck – and ours – that she needed to throw up when we had only one spare set of clothes, and on a day of multiple clinic appointments.
