This allergy season has to be the worst I’ve experienced. My head is in a fog. My sinuses are completely stuffed, my ears are clogged, my throat is raw and my forehead throbs. This has been my continual state of being for 7 days now. After the first hour of church this morning I had […]
True to form, I’ve been afflicted with my usual first-of-the-pollen-season sinus infection, and it’s a doozie. I can’t breathe or hear very well, and that has led to not being able to sleep, despite medication. Ugh. All the plants started blooming here a week or so ago and with some typically windy days this time […]

She got a Coronado HS t-shirt and […]
Dominic saw Dr. Stewart, the pediatric orthopedic surgeon, today. Dr. Stewart was very pleased with what he saw. He said the x-ray shows Dominic’s femur is at about 85% of normal. He checked out flexibility and mobility, along with comparing the length of both femurs and said everything checks out just dandy. Dominic is still […]
