Daddy, it’s a bug! Quick, you gotta BAM it!
Me: Girls are grody. Namine: Girls aren’t grody, you’re grody! Me: I’m not grody, you’re grody. Namine: You are! Me: You are! Namine: You are! Jessica: Would both of you please stop arguing!
Today we took Namine bowling. We’ve played with her bowling set at Aunt CR’s house before, but this was her first time at a bowling alley. Fortunately for us, the alley had a wheelchair ramp and a special slide to make it easy for someone in a wheelchair to send the ball down the lane.
We heard from one of Namine’s doctors yesterday. He called to inform us a bit about her right shoulder, which we recently discovered is not bad because of multiple line placements, but rather because of a birth defect.
Tonight Namine was playing with her Wizard of Oz toys from McDonald’s. She introduced every one of them to me.
Before dinner, Namine asked me how to draw a fox. I don’t really draw realistic things, like, at all, so I quick sketched out what seems to be a cat with a fox’s tail. No matter; it was good enough for Namine, and she sketched out a fox of her own. I thought it was pretty good.
Yesterday we found out that Namine’s most recent x-ray shows evidence of a congenital defect in her right shoulder. This was discovered by a tech, not a doctor, which surprises me. Of the thousands (yes, I have no doubt the number is in the thousands) of x-rays Namine has had done, this has not once been found until now, more than five years after her birth.
Remember those blood draws? Well, Namine had another one today, again to check her INR. They dropped her coumadin dose since last time, so here we are again.
I came across a tutorial online that caught my eye. It wasn’t the tutorial itself that I liked, though; it was the image they used in the header.
Since Namine’s chest incision from her heart surgery is taking longer to close than originally anticipated, she had to keep it covered with gauze and some tape over the weekend. She was none too happy about it, either, especially because her skin is very sensitive to adhesives.
