The Suction Machine is Back

I woke up ready to write a pithy post for Hopeful Parents, until I looked at the calendar and realized I was a day late!  Can I just second Varda's post for February 11th?  The suction machine came back out yesterday after a two week hiatus, and we're feeling sad and seriously fatigued with the necessary caretaking that our 6 year old is requiring.  This is, hands down, the worst winter of our kiddo's life in terms of health struggles.   My girl is wheezing and coughing, and we went to bed last night waiting to see if another visit to the ER was going to be in order.  On the upside, we had a final celebration for the installation of her new tub thanks to Make-A-Wish Vermont!  Sylvie got some frosting, now if only she could eat her cake too!  


When Kirsten isn’t catching up on sleep or working as a professor of Communication Studies at the State University of New York, she spends time suctioning mucus.
