The morning after

She survived.

We survived.

We were up way too late. WAY TOO LATE.

Josh said, "KayTar! That was one of your best episodes yet!" I looked at him, fairly confused, as it was her longest episode in quite a while and the only one we've had to give her double doses of meds. He clarified, "Well, it wasn't THAT painful, and she's right back to normal. No more regressions." And that really is a win, because when your kid is still only eating maybe 3 chips a day or maybe on a really good week 1 veggie burger once a week, there really isn't THAT MUCH room for further regression. We're happy to keep our status quo.

It is done and the clock starts again.

Today, I'm going on a road trip with Julie and her tiny little mouse car, thoroughly pleased that the clock has been reset and I can put my worries aside again, at least for 73 days, I hope.

Happy roadtrip....and we'll pray this space is Looooooonger than 73 days!!

Bon said...

safe travels in the mouse car, friend.

and there is something about the clock starting again, the cyclicality of this, that makes me shake my head with the greatest respect...for the mysteries of living and surviving, KayTar and you both.

Just catching up Kyla ... 73 days! That's really something I think, and Josh is right to feel cheered by how it went. I'm so glad for all of you that it's over once more.

Have a good travel ...

(Of course you should be a doctor. You could really work the Doogie Howser aspect and freak people out. Because what's a medical license without abuse of power?)

Yay, it's over!

Mouse car. Trippy.

Have fun.

Kyla this just ripps my heart out.
A new record and a quick recovery are good though.
Hope you are having a great trip.

Eight hours sounds like an eternity to me! You are so strong and so brave and you've passed those character traits to your precious daughter.

How ironic that it began during an evaluation? Will they document that? Will that become part of her evaluation?

kittenpie said...

It's good to hear she bounced back better - that is good news, at least. And 73 days! Enjoy that well-earned trip, honey.
