Welcoming Dr. Daisy Huang to our Medical Staff

They’re listening.

Lately I've been catching Karson and Lucy respond to things I say in front of them, even when I'm not talking directly to them. When I tell someone Lucy has a bit of an attitude she'll flash a cheesy, attention grabbing grin as if to say, "Not me?!" When I say they're driving me crazy

Let’s Talk About Fish

So my family and I are all pretty excited about going to see Finding Dory, and in the process of talking about this a friend of mine suggested I blogged about fish, and the benefits of including fish in your diet. Sounded like a good idea to me because the truth is, fish can be

Hallelujah, it’s summer!

Longer days mean later nights. Frolics in fields. Campfires. Camping. Trips to the beach. Kiddie pools. Summer dresses. Days at the park. Popsicles. Sleeping under the stars. Running through the sprinklers. Watermelon, fresh berries for days. Carefully arranging flowers from my parents’ garden and dinner too, eaten outside of course. Warm, sunkissed skin. Summer concerts

Let’s Talk About Gray Hair

So a few months ago, I’m sitting on the floor, cuddling with my 6-year-old daughter, when all of a sudden she get’s this surprised look on her face. With her eyes open extra wide, she stares at my chin and says, “Daddy, you have so many gray hairs in your beard! You can be my

Our road trip to Idaho

We recently arrived back home from a fun road trip to Idaho to celebrate my grandmother's 90th birthday. We stayed at a hotel for three nights which meant sleeping, eating and spending our days amongst witnesses to the craziness that is Karson and Lucy. Disrupted schedules and new surroundings made for poor sleep and cranky

Let’s Talk About DVTs

Do you know what a DVT is? How about a PE? If you don’t, you’re not alone. Many people have no idea what a DVT or a PE is, but the truth is, they affect up to 900,000 people each year in the United States. First, we have to start of by talking about blood

Having a “life”

When I was younger I thought my parents were lame for not having more of a "life." My brother, sister and I were the center of their world, followed by their careers which they both can be admired for. I'm lucky to say we spent a lot of time together as a family. Even in

Let’s Talk About Laughter

Earlier this week, I was working the floor with some of the most awesome nurses ever, and one of my friends suggested that I blog about laughter being the best medicine. Immediately, I thought it was a great idea. For years, I’ve been reading about research and experiments that confirm the positive benefits of laughter

My last classes!

Today I have officially attended my last classes of my undergrad career! Now all I have to do is survive finals. In the past I used to binge eat when I get stressed, so this year will be an interesting experience. What is encouraging is that Summer is almost here. This means not only that
