|Mary and family|
It's uncanny how life gets in the way. We all go on living our lives and not one of us stopped to think about how much Bubby has grown, how his weight has changed, and that perhaps it was time to get his levels checked. A script for lab work is on it's way, and tonight Mary seemed relieved to think that all the problems with headaches and vomiting lately could be decreased anti-seizure medication levels. When compared to a shunt malfunction and all it involves, the seizure is certainly the lesser of two evils. And so, this blog is dedicated to my daughter, Mary. She is always the same, never down. She deals on a daily basis with the struggles of raising a child with special needs, the decreased income due to her unemployment, and the stresses of returning to school for a masters degree in education, focused on special education. I've always said that a woman is like a tea bag . . . you don't know her strength until she's in hot water. That is certainly the case with Mary. She is a rock, a trooper, a great friend, a loving wife, mother, daughter and sister. But most of all she is a woman with great heart. And she makes me want to be a better person. I love you, Mary and I'm so blessed to have you in my life.
