The weather is astounding -- blue skies and cool breezes, warm sun and purple blossoms floating around. I don't know why I ever didn't live here.
Since Sophie was hugged by Amma, we have been applying sandalwood paste (made from a stick of sandalwood that Amma blessed) to her head each night before she goes to bed. She has had five fantastic days, free of seizures. Now that I've written that out, please knock wood three times, spit on the ground or do whatever it is you do if you're superstitious.
I applied for a fellowship today the details of which I won't bore you, but I filled out a seventeen page application and spent hours and hours on it. I then LOST THE FILE. Superstitiously or perhaps fatalistically, I decided that I couldn't possibly redo it and therefore it wasn't meant to be. I went out to lunch with my good friend D. who is also a computer genius.
HE FOUND THE FILE!
Please notice how I buried the news about Sophie in the middle of this blog post. That's how superstitious I am. You can comment all you like, though.
***Just in case, you're wondering -- the IVIG treatment for Sophie has not been approved, yet, by the insurance company. We're still waiting --
