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

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.


On my desk and hanging on my cubicle wall at work, I have several pictures of Namine. They are not ordered in any way, but they chronicle her progression from her time in Jessica’s tummy to about a year old, give or take a couple months. (The most recent pictures that we have, aside from those here on the blog, are at home.) They remind me of what is truly important.

Pushing back the infection

Yesterday Namine had another ENT appointment, once again to suck out her ear. But this time it wasn’t just the right ear – both had to be taken care of, but it’s not all bad. The process sucks, but it’s for the best.
