Harper at 7 weeks, 3 days old
Way back in 2009 I completed the Invisible Illness Week "30 Things" meme, but clearly things have changed a ton in my life since then. Considering that our theme for the September 2014 Headache Disorders & Migraine Blog Carnival is a request to discuss living with an invisible illness and/or participate in the 30 Things challenge, it seems like the perfect time to complete it again.

As you might well imagine, blogging and all my advocacy-related projects have been on hold since Harper was born in late June. I hate that I've been away from everything for so long, but it is what it is. This is a special time with my precious girl, and I'll be back when she's a little bit bigger.

In the meantime, there's a very important action alert I'd like to bring to your attention.

Let me introduce you to my daughter Harper Lee Robinson!


Our beautiful little peanut was born via c-section at 3:20 am on Friday, June 27, 2014, following a rather brutal (for me) three day failed induction.

She was 6 pounds, 3 ounces and 19-1/2 inches long. She's a perfect mix of me and Cliff and so gorgeous.
