Tonight was the first night in – well, I don’t know how long – that Namine was able to move freely in the bathtub. To play in the bathtub. She’s been limited by either her chest incision or the line in her arm, forced to sit still for one reason or another. But no longer! And Namine couldn’t have been happier.

Namine’s arm looks pretty bad. It’s very red, the result of being under the highly adhesive tegaderm for nearly two weeks. Her chest, on the other hand, looks better than ever. It’s basically just a scab now, and it doesn’t even need to be covered with gauze anymore.

Husband. Daddy. Programmer. Artist. I’m not an expert, I just play one in real life.
