I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.
I had a quiet Christmas day while Lily was with her dad. It’s been a roller coaster of a few weeks – so many highs and way too many lows – so I’ve been looking forward to some much needed down time.
We’ve not yet received Lily’s EEG results but in the meantime, I asked her neurologist to prescribe her some anti-seizure medication while we are awaiting the results. I couldn’t bear to not try something (and of course I’ve done countless hours of research on the topic so it’s not a knee-jerk reaction). Lily had become a shell of herself. And dammit if I’m not going to try every approach I can to help her get back to where she was 3 weeks ago.
Before Lily had her setback, my friend Carlos sent this note my way and it perfectly explains the joy, and pain, of motherhood. And it’s even more relevant to me now than ever.
Motherhood has been the greatest gift I have ever received. And I’m so grateful for my sweet kid. She’s going to get through this and come out even stronger. I just know it.
Wishing you all a peaceful and healthy new year. See you in 2017!
