This Blog Is A Work In Progress

As I said in my last post, I'm working on getting back into blogging after so much time off. Because of my other commitments, I'm doing this slowly, so please be patient.

Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, Part 1: Where I’ve Been the Past (Almost) Year

As you may already know, a fact which I certainly have admitted to before is this: When I get pregnant, I get really sick.

Essential Oils: Why Use Them?

Last month, I discussed what essential oils are. This month, I wanted to briefly touch on why you might consider using them. Before I do, I'd like to reiterate what I've said many times before: I'm not a doctor, and therefore I cannot diagnose, treat, cure, and/or prevent any disease.
