Two Things


Sophie had her first real day of school yesterday, AND IT WENT WELL. It's a giant high school in the middle of Los Angeles, and she's in a rather large class of kids and young adults with various "issues," but we know several of them from her old elementary school, the teacher is a very cool guy, and Sophie's new aide seems terrific.

Whew. Can we all just wipe the sweat off our brows, breathe a sigh of relief and offer up thanksgiving? Hallelujah!


I'm going to be speaking about epilepsy and the upcoming Epilepsy Freedom Walk on a radio talk show this morning. The broadcast is called The Conner Bubble, recorded out of Pasadena City College. It's a call-in show, so if you're interested you can listen on Lancer Radio, 88.9 on the FM dial. The show is from 12:00 PM -- 12:28 PM Pacific Time. Here's some more info:

Call-in Telephone Number: 1-626-585-7227 -- Call me with a question!

Live webcast: www.lancerradio.org (I have no idea how these things work, but I'm assuming you can actually listen online! These here internets are amazing...)


  1. Fingers crossed for Sophie's new school.

  2. That is fantastic that Sophie had a good first day! I hope that it is the beginning of a fantastic year. :)

  5. Ohhhh, SO happy to hear about the first day of Sophie's school. SO happy!
    I wish I were going to be home to listen to you today! Have appointments to attend, or I'd be glued to "these here internets." Please tell how it went afterward!
