I'm worn out. This weekend wasn't very relaxing at all, and I just feel exhausted. Poor Patrick is still sick. We go back to the Family doc again, or the pulmonigist if he ever gets back to us. I don't see how the poor guy is going to catch ... Read more

Thursday, March 11, 2010      2 comments

Well, I over estimated how well Patrick was doing yesterday. He woke up wheezing and coughing today. This freaked us out because he NEVER wheezes, only coughs with his asthma. He didn't improve much after his nebulizer treatment (pulmicort & ... Read more

After last night, I was ready for a new job. Over ten hours of busy pharmacy work. I work in a hospital, so it's not the type of job most people associate with being a pharmacist, ie Walgreens. We make sure all the med orders are entered corr... Read more

Okay, I have to admit, I'm learning new stuff on this site. I'm educated in healthcare (pharmacist) and I've read tons over the last 20 years to get in shape, but yes, I learned something about strength training yesterday. The articles and blo... Read more

First, I have to set up this kid quote. Brian came home from work with a surprise for the kids. He bought an electronic snap kit, the kind kids can build different electronic items like an alarm or a radio. Five of the six kids were enthralle... Read more

Feels Like Day 1 Again
Tuesday, February 23, 2010      3 comments

Well, I survived last week's migraine. It sure took it's toll on me. My brain felt "bruised" through the weekend. It's been a week since I exercised, but I got through the elliptical, weights and stretching. Moving a little slower than last ... Read more
