Meet Milo Andrew

My son has arrived! I’m thrilled to introduce you all to Milo Andrew. With a zest for life so strong that he decided to get a five week jumpstart, we are all doing well.  He is amazing. Life is amazing.

All How you Frame It. Professional Practice Models: Real World Solutions. Reduction of Urinary Tract Infection in a General Medical Floor. Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses, Las Vegas, NV. Thelma Case Study - OnBoarding Toward Nursing Staff Excellence. The objective of this research was to determine whether the CFSM scale measure is a reliable and valid food security measure for use in Hawaii, where at least 50% of the population is of Asian or Pacific Islander descent. We completed an independent assessment of the robustness of the internal scale construct validity of the CSFM scale measure and hierarchical order of items using the same Rasch methods used previously to develop the CSFM. Whitehead WE, Delvaux M: Standardization of barostat procedures for testing smooth muscle tone and sensory thresholds in the gastrointestinal tract. The concept for the Crasche hat came from Robert Emmett Cleva after he took a serious spill while bicycling without a helmet. Each hat is 100 percent acrylic and washable. The outer layers of the inserts are composed of a strong polycarbonate plastic, the same material used to make bulletproof glass. The inner layers are made of neoprene rubber, the same skin-friendly material used in wetsuits, and contain a series of air chambers that cushion the impact and spread the force of the impact over the entire insert. The nursing staff and the residents have found the Crasche hats to be a better alternative to their preexisting, ill-fitting helmets, and residents are more willing to keep the hats on their heads, preventing possible serious injury. The company has also received orders from families with special needs children who require protective headgear. Abstract Book SIU 2006, C 19, 48. Bulking endoscopico nel trattamento del VUR dopo trapianto renale. Abstract Book SITO 2006, 42. where to buy propecia cvs Il trapianto renale nel paziente affetto da nefropatia policistica: indicazione e tempistica della nefrectomia. Esperienza del Centro Trapianti renali di Torino dal 1999 al 2005. Abstract Book SUNI 2006, 14. World Health Organization (WHO) criteria, but most studies like the MONICA project require at least two BP measurements and must tackle the problem of combining the results of the different readings into a single value for classification. The Swiss MONICA project measured the blood pressure of 1872 individuals in the areas of Vaud and Fribourg. Second BP readings were, on average, lower than the first by 3. Hg for diastolic BP. These differences, while trivial at the individual level, nevertheless generate significant effects on prevalences of high BP. The first reading, the second, the mean, and the lowest yield prevalences of 14%, 10%, 11% and 9% respectively.. This disease is genetically dominant, shows up at 35-40 years of age, and causes a progressive degeneration of the central nervous system. Death follows within several years after the first symptoms occur. As this disease is dominant, it is simple to follow. RFLP to locate genes associated with the genetic disorder is less trivial, since it may not be known until several generations later who is a carrier of the disease (heterozygote without disease symptoms) and who is not. The world Anti-Doping Agency was established in pain medication online without prescription 1999 as an international independent agency composed and funded equally by the sport movement and governments of the world. The World Anti-Doping Code was created in 2004 and the revision of the Code in 2009 does not impact on any of the information provided from sources that pre-date this. Before competition and during periods of training, elite athletes are regularly checked via urine testing to determine if prohibited substances have been used and to sanction punishment where detected. Cannabinoids are treated differently to most other drugs on the prohibited drug list in two ways. It also suppressed anchorage-dependent and -independent growth of A431 human epithelial carcinoma cells. Isorhamnetin attenuated EGF-induced COX-2 expression in JB6 and A431 cells.

There was no benefit in subjects who had never smoked or had previously quit smoking..
Potter+Butler has momentarily turned out the lights in our creative shop while I give my full attention and creative energy to my little boy. The lights will be flipped back on and the creative merriment will resume in early spring (or when it feels right, whichever comes first).

Until then, may you be surrounded by joys that are too deep to put into words. Cheers, all!

Christmas Tradition: Cutting down the tree

We selected our tree for this holiday season! Obviously, we had to choose the one waaaay in the back of the farm so that Adam could have the joy of carrying it waaaaay to the car. Heading out into the Oregon countryside and selecting first a tree farm and then a Christmas tree has become one of my favorite traditions since moving to this lush state, which is abundant with perfect evergreens this time of year, three years ago.

With a baby on board and due in January, each tradition we have is taking on a new feeling this year – with a big ol’ nod of gratitude to Christmas traditions as we’ve known them for 32 years mixed with  much anticipation for the refreshed sense of merriment each Christmas will take on as a parent from here on out.

As they say, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.

May the joy of your traditions be felt more deeply than ever before, friends. We are grateful for you!

Holiday Preparations

Do you feel it? It hit me today – big time. I think it’s the combination of the nip in the air along with the excited Thanksgiving menu talks that are transpiring. In addition, the holiday-themed work I’ve been creating and shooting this week for my first two contributions to me feeling pretty pretty jolly. The photo above is a sneak peek of creative holiday goodness that’s been going on around here.

How about you? Have you made the transition in feeling from October harvest-y to winter holiday-ish? If so, what brought it on?

Have a delightful day, creative friends. I’m sending you goodness and love. Cheers!
