A father’s perspective: Our journey to finding a treatment

When Quinn, our soon-to-be-born daughter, didn’t make as much movement in the womb as our other 3 children, my wife, Annie, and I thought we had the “chillest” baby in the world. We joked that she was saving up all her energy for when she entered this world kicking and screaming. Quinn was born in August 2018, and she was the most beautiful little girl. Over the first few months, nothing seemed out of the ordinary. In fact, she appeared healthy and had strong upper body strength. But by the time Quinn’s 9-month check-up came around in June, her physical condition started to change.

      Happy Monday, everyone! Here’s to a new week.

      In case you missed it, here’s my latest column where I discuss the bittersweet feeling of autumn. I’m a sucker for everything this season brings— including the brisk weather— so it would be remiss of me to not acknowledge that.

      However, autumn means winter is around the corner. Which means cold and flu season is ready to rear its ugly head. Which means it’s almost time for me to essentially hibernate in my home. Can you see how this time of year is bittersweet for me???

      I’ve been really trying to soak in these last few weeks of “freedom,” and it got me thinking: am I the only one who feels this way? Does autumn bring these same bittersweet feelings for you, too?

      Would love to hear your thoughts!

      This time of year definitely causes some mixed emotions for me. On one hand, I love the beautiful fall colors, and I’m becoming eager for the approaching holidays. On the other hand, my body reacts pretty poorly to the cooler temperatures, and I’m dreading the possibility of having to miss out on things because sicknesses that get passed around. I try to stay focused on the positives though.

        I totally feel you on this. There have even been some Christmases I’ve had to skip out on because family members were sick. Hope you stay healthy this cold and flu season, Halsey!

          That would be terrible! We almost always host Christmas, and no one is allowed to come if they are sick. They get their gifts later. Unfortunately there are sometimes people who come anyway, but we let them stay as long as it’s not too bad and they keep their distance. I hope you stay healthy as well! Flu season is always a little scary, so fingers crossed!
