bandaid

In every Dr. Mom’s medical kit is an endless supply of bandaids, tubes of antiseptic cream, and more hugs and kisses than can be contained. Fortunately, this usually does the trick. But once in a rare while, it doesn't. At those times, a doctor’s appointment is arranged, or a trip to the ER becomes necessary. Prescription medicine is purchased. The cast has to stay on for at least 6 weeks. And we are going to need a lot more hugs and kisses. But there is a level of tragedy beyond that, and no … [Read more...]

I am in no way the next New York Times Bestselling Author. But I do genuinely and wholeheartedly have a growing passion for writing. I believe that my … [Read more...]
