Back At It

Hey friends!  For those of you who follow this blog regularly, you’ll notice it’s been a bit since I’ve posted.  I took a bit of a break and it felt nice to let life happen.  But I missed you all so here’s an update on what’s been going on:

Nolan had a scheduled cardiology appointment, which went well.  I don’t want to spoil the complete result of it, so I’m going to post a little bit more about that in the coming days.


I managed to sprain my back during a trip to Ikea.  For the record, I was lifting with my legs until the box slipped and I tried to catch it.  The result was some really intense pain…to the point where I couldn’t even pick up any of the kids.  When I went to the doc, they prescribed me some steroids.  Of course, since I have an overactive imagination, this is how I pictured my time being prescribed steroids:


Buuuuut…reality was more like this:


No joke, those things made me into some kinda crazy ravenous beast….I was always hungry.  Luckily for me, it only lasted a week and my back feels 100% better.  Goodness that was a brutal few days at first because I was like “ahhhh my back hurts but blaaaaaaargh I wanna eat EVERYTHINNNNNG!”


Looking ahead there’s lots of really cool stuff on the horizon.  There’s another Pediatric Congenital Heart Association guest blog coming up soon and I also have the honor of speaking at a parent breakout session during Camp Luck’s Family Camp this month, so that’s really exciting.  Hopefully I do a great job!

It’s good to be back, friends…let’s continue the fun and good conversation!


About Chris Perez

My name is Chris aka HLHS Dad: I’m married with 3 sons. I love photography and the New York Yankees. I’m an admitted pizza snob and amateur balloon animal maker. Every now and then you can catch me being serious…but most of the time I’m quoting random commercials or lines from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.
