One of Those Days

Yup, I'm having one of "those" days. Not one of THOSE days, but one of "those" days. :) You know, the ones where every light turns green as you approach. Even the arrowed ones. Where your baby's smile lights up every person she sees. Where you feel like, even if only for today, everything is going to be okay. . . no, better yet, everything is going to be good. Ah, I LOVE these days.

Chloe's had a couple episodes of shaking. Twice she was MAD and then yesterday she had just finished therapy. It was as if she shuddered or shivered from a chill. Her whole body shook just for a second or two. Her OT was here and saw it, so she was able to help me report it to the doc. He wants us to watch them more closely for more details (HA! they happen so randomly, so quickly and so unexpectedly!!!) and he wants her to have an EEG. They could be seizures, but it's really hard to tell. I know, you'd think I wouldn't consider this part of my happy day, but the happy part is that I'm not afraid or overwhelmed. I think it will be nothing. I'm just going with it at this point and whatever it is we'll face it and conquer it, if need be. (and for those of you with experience with seizures I'm happy to hear your input!)

Today I wear my boxing gloves ready to take on the world. Today is one of those days. . .

and maybe it's one of those days because my middle baby is 4 years old today and I am empowered by the memory of her amazing homebirth where I learned my own strength as a woman was far beyond what I ever thought possible. Maybe THAT is why today I stand so strong. I love you Ms. Sadie Deanna.
