Coming Up For Air

Remember that post about my rocking chair and how in love with it I am? I changed my mind. I have been in that damn chair, for the most part, since Saturday morning. Brady seized over and over in that chair until we were finally forced to break open our emergency pack of Valium. I won't go into the details of how you administer Valium to a toddler but it scared us to death to use it and it actually worked quickly and beautifully. We haven't had any seizures since Saturday morning, just a high fever that won't go away and one cranky little boy.


On a brighter note, the powers that be at work have assured me I can work from home whenever and as much as I want. I don't think I'm disciplined enough to make that work but it's a huge relief to know I have the option. Also, we ran to the grocery store this morning to give Brady some fresh air and find something he might actually eat. This is who we saw...






We saw him but I didn't dare talk to him because A)I was too star struck and B)hello, I looked awful and there were cameras everywhere! I am actually quite obsessed with the Oprah show and its many experts. Troy loves to poke fun at me for this and has already pointed out how ridiculous it is that I didn't go talk to "my idol."

There is one other thing that has made Troy and I so very happy lately and it is this clip. Apparently the whole world has seen this video but us. We have been speaking in bad British accents now for days.

I know it seems like all we blog about is seizures but we're just in the midst of one of those clusters. We can't seem to think about or get much else done but we know it will pass. We will get this medication thing figured out and our lives will start to feel normal again. Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments, thoughts and prayers. It boosts our spirits more than you know.

What a rough week. I'm so sorry guys.

I have to admit, I have no idea who that famous person is, but I have seen that video! Kiana actually shared it with me...my 9 year old seems to know about the funny youtube videos to check out.

Sorry for the terrible weekend! Give Brady (and you too!) a hug for us. Hopefully things are getting better this week. And hopefully the chair can soon resume it's status of greatness. =)

I also don't know who your celebrity is...but happy you got to see him if he is a star to you. Tha't fun.

I'm also secretly happy that you were a little star struck...makes me feel better about myself. =) I met a scrapbooking celebrity once that I adore and found myself completely tounge-tied. Couldn't think of a word to say to her! Nope, just stood there like a moron. He, He!

Man, enough with the seizures! Sorry.

I couldn't work from home. I'm would be doing all but work! It's good to have that option though. I'm sure there are days that you'd just rather be there then gone.

K- This is how into Oprah I am... I have no idea who that guy is! He looks like a young Dennis Quaid though!

I hadn't seen that clip either... see I'M the last one to know about stuff!
