Hi there! I've got a couple of winning names for you. I am trying to get back to blogging because I don't want this blog to be forgotten and I have a ton of books to share with you all.
Quick update: My son Luke had another serious seizure this week--it happened on the day he finally felt well enough to go back to school and he was there for the full day. As I was walking into the school to pick him up I saw the school was calling me, which I thought was odd--why would they call me at the end of the day? He was having a seizure in his classroom.
We're still trying to get him into the hospital for an overnight series of tests.We've changed his meds. I can't relax at all when he's not by my side. Fortunately, the school is literally a 10-second drive from our house. We are taking life day-by-day. He's being very brave.
On top of all of this, my older son, who is 14, had a basketball injury today and we took him to the ER. I've never heard him cry so hard in his life from pain. He will need an MRI too, to see if he tore a muscle in his shoulder.
Our ER visits through insurance cost $450 each time. I hate our insurance company.
Thank you for letting me vent.
