Conference Bound & Armed with CuVerro Antimicrobial Copper

Ben and I are a few days away from heading out of town for a big conference, so I should be spending my time preparing for our trip. Instead, I'm nursing a household of sick patients again. Ben and Aubrey both have a stomach virus, and Ellie has a viral upper respiratory infection. Oh, the joys of exposure to the public school system. It seems like everyone I talk to right now is either battling something or just getting over something. Our 2 local hospitals are on flu protocol limiting visitors, and doctors' offices are full.

You Don’t Think It Will Happen to You, Then it Does

I sat down to write this post so many times over the last few weeks, and each time I found myself struggling to move my thoughts from my head to the keyboard. The 6 saved drafts and countless deleted posts are a testament to where my mind has been. The last month has been a struggle for us as we were hit with unforeseen news that changed not just our Summer plans, but our family's life plan. My wonderful husband, Ben, walked into our doctor's office in the middle of June for a routine followup on a blood pressure medication change and pulled abdominal muscle. Neither of us could have ever … [Read more...]

I printed out the cute little … [Read more...]
