Sunday January 29, 2023 // 1:38 in the afternoon I woke up Saturday morning (1/28) feeling overdue and quite exhausted, wondering when our little guy was going to make his transition earth-side.

Infrared thermometers. Are they safe?
A couple months ago I posted about our new, touchless, infrared thermometer from FORA. It is a medical grade non-contact thermometer- and it is my favorite + highly trusted thermometer.

The Second Awakening
January 26, 2018. “They have a bed ready for you in room 4406. That’s going to be up on the fourth floor, off the elevators to your left, on the cancer transplant unit”. The cancer transplant unit. The cancer unit. CANCER. I stared back at the registration clerk blankly. Thoughts rushed through my head in […]
Treating A Fever Naturally.
Fevers are a natural part of fighting germs and illness, but they can often be very unsettling to parents. You’ve probably gathered fears over the years from hearing things like, “untreated and high fevers can cause damage to brain cells or hearing loss” or, “high fevers can cause seizures” and so on.
