But the fighter still remains.


In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade and he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him low or cut him till he cried out, in his anger & his shame “I am leaving, I am leaving….” But the fighter still remains.   My baby – this fight has [...]

Trust your Intuition.


A lesson I have learned this crazy stay….. to trust my own intuition. It’s not to say that I usually DON’T – but this stay above others – we acted, her doctors and Ben and I, on our intuition of what we thought Kendall was going to pull next. Fun facts about Kendall: She likes [...]

How i am.

This might be one of those really raw, rough posts to read. I’m kind of an emotional mess and I don’t really have a filter right now. So very many of you have asked how i’m doing this past week. Every time the nurse or care partner comes in, they ask “how are you mom, [...]


In case you had not seen the pictures on my or Kendall’s facebook pages – she has been extubated! Considering that I was not even in the mindset that she would need intubation this time, the weight that has been lifted by her breathing on her own and off of the presser support (no longer [...]


Have you ever had one of those times that didn’t SEEM like it was as hard as it was until after you were through it? And then in the absence of the hardness you realize that it was actually really fricking hard and it sucked? That is me today, regarding yesterday. Having to have a [...]

She’s pulled a few kendallisms over the summer, but we were relatively prepared for them and were able to handle them [...]

Sometimes you wanna go


Where everybody knows your name… (sing along with me) And they’re always glad you came. you wanna be where people know your troubles are all the same you wanna go where everybody knows your name. This song is stuck in my head this morning for a few reasons. Chief among them that sometimes it is [...]

I’m back.


Did you miss me? I missed me. I missed here. I am not even sure what the blog looks like anymore really. I should probably fix that. To explain why it’s been so long since i’ve blogged would probably break the interwebs with the length of post it would take. And really, it wasn’t any [...]

Thirty Eight.


I turned 38 an hour ago. Happy Birthday to me! And I figured today was a good day to blog again. It’s been a grip of time. I’ve been busy. I’ve been doing stuff. I’ve been thinking about stuff. It isn’t that I didn’t want to write about some things – it was just….sometimes it’s [...]
