Yes You Can, Fellow Human
At the end of May, we passed the two year anniversary of Grace's diagnosis. Last Tuesday, Grace had eye surgery. Today, I made two more appointments with specialists after two therapies. I'm going to be the first to admit that keeping up with Grace needs a ...

30 Days Later: How to Survive a (Hard) Residency Rotation
Saturday was the last day of MICU and, of course, it was the weekend, so Will was the only resident covering multiple floors. He has nurses and an attending too, so it's not like he's all alone - it's just a lot of work for a moderate-high census. Bonus: no...

#Snowzilla: Playtime
Snow time: Grace in her new snow pants and snow boots; Laura in her snow sack. Shenanigans! That is Will's car. So. Our neighbor shoveled a pathway for us since I couldn't get out of the house safely, and I hired a man to clear the rest of the pathway today...
