Children with critical medical needs, like Namine, often spend more time in the hospital than most. Especially in her youth, it was not uncommon for us to make repeated trips to the emergency room.
Mysterious stomach pain
Namine was experiencing severe stomach pain, so we spent two days in the hospital.
Foot laceration complications
The pain in Namine’s foot from her fall was so out of control that we ended going back to the ER.
My tipped wheelchair
My dad wrote about when I tipped my wheelchair. This is what happened, from my point of view.
Tipped wheelchair and foot laceration
Namine’s wheelchair fell on top of her. Fortunately, she did not break any bones. She did suffer a pretty nasty cut on her foot.
Leg pain scare
Namine’s leg was caught in the sliding door of the van. Fortunately, nothing is broken.
Overnight hospital stay
After a late night visit to the ER, Namine was admitted to the hospital for a persistent cough, high fever, and low oxygenation.
Dental and the ER
Namine got the rest of her braces, but she also had an allergic reaction to her pre-appointment antibiotic.
Late night ER visit
When a heart patient tells you something is wrong, you listen.
Namine was complaining of chest pains this afternoon, so we took her to the ER. Long story short, she’s fine and we don’t know why she was in pain.
Namine broke her leg over the weekend.
It’s been nearly a week, and we’re still no closer to understanding why Namine is sick.
Basketball camp, week 2
Jessica and I were helping her sister move this weekend, so my aunt took Namine to basketball camp.
