Fetal Position Requests


My favorite Bitmojii currently

Which do you want? Bad news or good news?

The bad news is that I'm not going to Italy on Saturday with my father and sisters and cousin.

The other bad news is that I'm going to take Sophie into the hospital now to see what the hey is going on with her. She's declined quite a bit, and we're going to do an overnight video EEG. I'm concerned she might have developed ESES (electrical status epilepticus in slow wave sleep) which she's had twice before. I only list this second because it helps to soften the blow. We do what we do to cope. That's how we do it.

The good news is that they have a bed at the hospital, the nurses so far have been really great (one acknowledged that since I've been doing this for two decades, I must be really on top of things), and I'm actually feeling relieved that decisions have been made and we're moving forward.

Do what you do as far as sending good vibes Sophie's way. The whole prayer thing eludes me, but I welcome them, along with light, love, strength, courage, peace and, of course, leftist politics.

Sophie's struggling, and she's still the light of my life.

All will be well
All will be well
All manner of things shall be well.

  30. I'm sorry Sophie's difficulties have continued. At least you're hopefully in the process of figuring things out. It must feel better to be DOING something, even if the illusion of some degree of control really is just that. I'm thinking about you both.
