Sienna celebrated her first birthday on January 2, 2009. I've realized how neat it is to have her birthday right at the beginning of the year. For Christmas I gave our family calendars with pictures of Sienna that correspond to each month in 2008. They can watch her grow from a newborn to a toddler throughout 2009!
But, the novelty of that idea isn't the coolest part of having her birthday right after New Years. The holidays are a time of reflection and looking toward the future with hope and excitement. As I spent time with family and friends over the holidays, I was in a very reflective mood; thinking about my little family and what we want out of life together. As the New Year approached, Dennis and I reminisced on where we were last year at that time. Since we were to report to the hospital on January 1 st , we didn't stay up until midnight to ring in the New Year. Instead, we got a good night sleep and anxiously awoke to ...
It would be neat if asthma was like a sport. Instead of writing dry, humorless posts, we could write exciting and entertaining posts about our theories and herald new inventions like the new vaccine that's supposed to cure allergies .
Another thing sports writers do that's fun is make fake rankings like this . They have fun writing these, and we have fun reading them. So I thought, for the fun of it, to rank 10 asthma medicines from worst to best (in my humble opinion of course).

10. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). Sorry to say it, but this one time classic team, which included Cromolyn and Tilade , has served its purpose and now finds its way in the trash heap of no-longer-used asthma medicines. If you find yourself on these medicines still, chances are you have b...
The start of a new year should be a positive time, full of hope for the coming year. But if you're living with the same chronic pain you've had for years, it can sometimes be hard to grab on to that spirit of hopefulness. Over the past few days, I've been thinking about this upcoming new year and how I wanted to approach it. I knew I didn't want to make a bunch of stale resolutions that I'd never keep. Yet I couldn't shake the feeling that somehow this year needed to be different. I was still mulling over these thoughts when my phone rang. It was Sharon, one of my oldest and dearest friends. We hadn't taked in several months, so we had a lot of catching up to do. I asked her what she had been doing and how her children and their families were. She was bubbling over with exciting stories of everything that was going on in all of their lives. Then Sharon asked the inevitable question – “So what's new with you?”...
