I haven't brought her in post-episode since the very, very beginning, but this one was just so worrisome that I needed confirmation that she really was just fine. Watching your active 3 year old stay almost completely immobilized for 5-6 hours is kind of terrible, you know. She wouldn't even sit up to grab something that she really wanted that was directly in front of her. She just wasn't moving. Even though I know she's fine, it still gives me knots in my stomach to think about it all. She has regressed with her feeding several times following an episode, she lost three different sets of words in the beginning, and I just could not stop worrying that she had last her gross motor skills this time. She didn't and I am thrilled, but the worries and what-ifs still dance in my head and tie knots in my stomach.
So this press conference thing is happening. Like for real. I have been emailed my suggested talking points, the run of show (with my name on it! Exciting! Terrifying! I think I'll puke now!), and some other various information. I'll have 4 minutes to speak give or take, and then Q&A with the reporters. I think they've mistaken me for someone who knows what she's talking about!
Also, I just got a card from the woman who interviewed me a few weeks ago, she said that our story was accepted by the national office (!) and she'll keep me posted of publications.
This is what it feels like to enter the Twilight Zone, I think.
My professor missed class on Tuesday night due to his own family emergency and he agreed to let me take the test at a later time. So now I'm studying to maintain that information, while adding in the information for the upcoming lab practical. The lab practical, consequently, will likely be on Tuesday evening, which means I'll spend the day at the Capitol and then rush off to take an exam as soon as I get back to town. FUN!
Isn't awesome when all your irons are in the fire at once?
