Forgive my grumpy attitude yesterday I was a bit overwhelmed. My hubby has promised to be nice to me today, and stop by and see me later.

After my rough day everything finally seemed to fall into place last night. I was determined to get home and just appreciate my kids. Jude was still having small spasms, and I believe that is causing his lack of eating. He has some blood work today, and he will see the doctor on Monday. I know he will increase the Depakene in hopes it will eliminate the seizure activity. It is medically interesting watching how seizures can affect Jude's everyday learning and memory capabilties. It's emotionally straining though watching him drift off because he has forgotten to suck on his bottle.

Emily is always great about including Jude. She was especially interested in him last night, and spent a lot of time with him. She even pulled him up next to her at dinner (ignore my messy kitchen)


She then spent some time with him in the living room


It seems when I start getting down someone does something that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. I remind myself that people really do have good hearts. I received an email today from The Whitton family over at http://thewackywhittons.blogspot.com/. Please stop by and see how they honored Jude for pediatric Stroke Awareness day. They went on vacation so they drove all the way to Florida with their vehicle displaying awareness!

On another note I have been touched by two others this week. Sometimes I think God knows he needs to steer people your direction. I had two different woman come in my office on seperate occasions and both had different tales. One mother was dealing with the loss of a child due to a car wreck, and the other a child that is fighting a bone disease. We talked about their insurance, made arrangements on payments, and then discussed our lives in general. I received hugs from strangers, and comments on how it was fate they stepped in my office. We shed tears for our kids, and I connected with people I never will know again except through a professional standing. It was touching, and I learned a lot from them.
