Name Game for TinyD

April 5, 2007
Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 1:49 pm

Travis and I are working on a name for TinyD/Genghis/Genghis Geronimo Dunbar. We have some ideas, but we’re not sharing them.  (Who knows, maybe the baby will be named Genghis Geronimo. I’m sure he’d be very popular in school)

We’re open to suggestions and would love to see your guesses/suggestions for a good name for him.  Post your guesses in the comment section of this post (you’ll have to be logged in), include a first and middle name, and give as many possible names as you want.

I demand the end of winter

Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 1:49 pm

That’s it. I’m tired of the winter. It’s cold again today and I need a coat for getting to and from work.  It’s spring in
Texas, so my 18 years of living their acclimated me to expect spring weather and flowers in March, not snow and gray.  I think I’ll go buy some flowers. That will make me feel better. Or maybe I’ll just eat something instead.

Crockpot Madness

Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 1:48 pm

Travis’s mom gave us a crock pot for Christmas.  I tried it out last night week for the first time, using a recipe Travis and I have made before for ‘One Pot Chicken’.  The recipes in the cookbook that came with the crockpot are fine for more people, but there’s no way Travis and I can eat 2 chickens and 2 pounds of rice in a few days, or a multipound rump roast.  So I braved a ‘regular’ recipe in the crock.  It’s basically a hearty chicken stew with big hunks of veggies and nice broth.  As I was a little afraid of the crock pot burning down the house, and because we were going to be out of the house the next day for 10+ hours, I used it to cook the stew overnight while we were sleeping.  Waking up in the morning to the smell of chicken soup is kinda nice and it turned out well. You actually can cook food for 10 hrs without having the veggies turn to mush!  The second try is today, so that we’ll have something to feed my parents when they get here this evening besides pasta and sauce from a jar or gardenburgers.

Multilevel modeling and generalized estimating equations

April 3, 2007
Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 6:33 pm

Genghis Geronimo (new, expanded name!) is not a fan of multilevel modeling and GEE.  While very useful in the world of statistics, 3 hours of class in the evening focusing on them is tough.  He started off trying to kick a hole in my liver, but now seems to be sleeping.  He’s a smart one, that G2.  Even at 28 weeks.  At least there was free food. 

Instant Celebrity

Boy people like pregnant ladies!  It seems like every physician, nurse, unit clerk, transport person, etc I’ve ever met at the hospital now notices that I’m pregnant. Last weekend on call, I had my own brief version of ’15 minutes of fame’.  Every time I went onto a different hospital unit, the unit clerk or nurses would comment on me being pregnant.  I’m not usually the center of attention, but people tend to get really excited about babies and future babies, so I’ve gotten to chat with a lot of nice people at the hospital. 

No fear about asking…

28 weeks  Now it’s really obvious that I’m pregnant.  Even people at work aren’t shy about asking and typically most of them don’t (you never know who’s just bloated or has gained some weight from working and eating hospital food).  It’s getting hard to close my white coat over my belly.  I can still button it, but it starts to ride up when I walk, which is kinda funny looking. 

I think you can click on the link ‘28 weeks’ above and see a picture of me and the belly.  I tried to upload it before, but either ended up with a ginormous image or one that’s smushed. I’ll let you decide whether I’ve learned how to levitate, or haven’t learned how to rotate a picture in Wordpress.  Hmmmm… Wordress changed their picture uploading method, which I haven’t quite figured out.

Palm Sunday

Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 8:52 pm

So I had my 2nd to last weekend call for the academic year last weekend. This involves seeing lots of patients with GI problems like liver failure, doing endoscopic procedures on people with bleeding ulcers, and fielding phone calls from patients about their bowel prep for colonoscopy (do I have to drink the whole gallon? Yes)

I didn’t get to church for Palm Sunday because I was working, but I did get a collection of palm fronds from a nurse and a few visitors.  One was niftily shaped into a cross and the others were just long.  Not the easiest things to carry around, but they look pretty nice on my desk.   

N.B. The academic year for medicine runs from July 1-June 30.  Try to avoid the hospital on July 1.  Trust me, you don’t want to be there unless absolutely necessary.

So, maybe it was Friday…
