Drawing her own medicine

Namine has shown an interest lately in drawing her own medicine. She’s always taken her medicine seriously (pun intended), mostly because we’ve always been honest with her from the start about why she has to take so much medicine at all. (And to be frank, she doesn’t have nearly as much medicine as she used to.)

Back to school

Today is the second full day that Namine is completely off her pain medication, with no trace of pain — abdominal or otherwise.* As her health has improved, we’ve been able to resume her schooling. She’s very excited to be learning again.

To the doctor, again

We took Namine to the pediatrician. Yes, again. She still has a nasty-sounding cough — even after being on steroids to help with inflammation, antibiotic, increased inhalers, and a nebulizer — and the persistent bugger shows no sign of letting up.
