Be Still

I sit here, fingers on the keyboard, researching antioxidants, oral cancer and toothpaste.   She always has a tummy ache, maybe she needs to go gluten free like my mom.   I just heard the big one cough again, maybe she’s getting pneumonia again.

What if the work stops flowing this month? Will I make enough to

Her pediatrician suggested that it was probably a floppy larynx and we should keep an eye on it unless it gets worse. Then, she started having a lot of stridor, which is this strange whistling type noise that is not wheezing and is quite loud. We joke that she sounds like a seal or a goose. Well, it did not get better, and if anything got worse. I called the doctor
