For those who may have missed it on Facebook:
NEWS FROM NEUROLOGIST – doc does not believe what we’re seeing is seizure activity – EEG clear, looks like a ‘motor tic consistent with autism’. Thank you for your love and your prayers. And to those whose news is different, my heart and my prayers remain with you.
More another day on the infuriatingly pompous doctor who came THISCLOSE to getting an earful of Jess letting loose on behalf of every mom who has ever had to face a guy who thinks his lab coat makes him God followed by a general rant on filling out reams of paperwork that no one ever reads. But I was up until midnight writing awards (and NOT writing my speech), so those particular rants will have to wait.
Last night, our family hunkered down in the basement of our home to ride out one of the many tornado warnings that were cascading along the Eastern Seaboard. We waited together, unnerved but determined not to panic, watching for news, not knowing for sure until it was over that we had never really been in any danger.
As we put the girls to bed, thunder growled loudly above our roof and lightening cracked open the sky again and again. The rain fell hard.
I felt powerless.
But momentarily safe.
The evening as metaphor was complete.
This morning, we as we wake up to an almost comically beautiful morning, I revel in the fact that this particular storm passed us by and send all of my love and my prayers to those who were not so lucky.
