  • Going home

    Namine has been discharged, and we are going home. Huzzah!

  • In recovery

    Namine has been taken up to the recovery room. She’s resting fitfully now; she’s also in quite a bit of pain.

  • Uh oh

    So we’re here in the waiting room, and something has gone wrong. A patient of Namine’s first foot surgeon (for those that remember). I am not surprised at all. Nor am I surprised at the fury and rage I feel rising up in me all over again.

  • Bronchoscopy done!

    That was fast. The ENT doctor just came back to tell us that she finished examining Namine’s mouth, airway, and ears. Everything looks good!

  • Old enough to know

    Old enough to know

    Namine has been taken back to have her procedures. I’m nervous; but then, I’m always nervous. No procedure any gets easier, even something as routine as a bronchoscopy. What’s more, it’s harder for Namine now more than ever, as she understands what she did not in the past.

  • At the hospital

    Namine was just taken back, screaming her head off. So sad.

  • Procedures tomorrow

    We’re headed off to the hospital tomorrow, for more procedures. Namine is having two things done: dental work and a bronchoscopy.

  • Selfies


  • Hope in the face of despair

    Hope in the face of despair

    If you go to imgur.com you’ll see a familiar face on the front page. Proof, I think, that hope will always win over despair.

  • Eating soup

    We had soup tonight. Namine is… sometimes not great with soup, especially if it’s soup she loves. And believe you me, she loves Tastefully Simple’s creamy chicken wild rice soup.
