My friend Moye sent me the above photo yesterday with this message:
Long road behind you, joy ahead.
What a perfect complement to my post of one week ago. Thank you, Moye.
And thank you to everyone out there who has been so kind and supportive and as excited as we are by Sophie's promising response to the medical marijuana. Your emails and texts and dreams and facebook likes and comments here and phone calls and overall glee are like balm, like honey, like manna. You abide. And thank you to Meg for connecting me and to J for getting us the stuff. You know, it's only been a few days over one week, and there's no telling if this is a lasting phenomenon. I feel more bewildered than joyful, and utterly exhausted on some deep, cellular level. There will be more settling, I'm sure, and hopefully, more dancing.
I am in dire need of some pointers on how to adequately convey my gratitude to all of ya'll.
