I posted late last night, went to bed, and when I got up this morning to check our blog I found so many wonderful and supportive comments. We are so incredibly fortunate to have such amazing and loving friends!!!
A few weeks ago I attended a support meeting full of parents of children with various disabilities. Led by a licensed therapist, we shared our various frustrations and discussed different means of coping. Virtually all of the other parents shared their sadness over losing most of the friends they had before their special children came into their life. I sat there thinking "whaaaaaaat?" and avoided eye contact with the therapist for fear she would ask me about friends. I felt a tiny bit guilty sitting there thinking that NOT A SINGLE ONE of our friends has not been absolutely supportive to us!
I have most likely broken down in front of all of you at least once, or maybe even shut down and avoided friends altogether during a difficult period of diagnosis and grieving. I am so appreciative of your patience and understanding. And thank you for turning my tears of sadness this morning after Brady had yet another seizure to tears of gratitude. We love and appreciate you all so much!
p.s. Troy continues to discuss our options with our neurologist (they speak by phone at least once a week). We still have several options available to us - it's just a matter of trying each one out which will take a bit of time. We will keep you posted.
