I don't know why but medical drama seems to just follow us. Right before Belin's Bat Mitzvah 3 years ago Rosie had this weird thing going on with her hip (toxic synovitis) then her leg couldn't support her weight...lots of pain and fevers every night...after many xrays, mri's, ultra sounds, bone scans and even a biopsy at Children's Hospital (they were concerned she had a tumor in the bone because of the way one of the mri images looked) ultimately they discovered a mysterious fracture in her femur. We still have no idea to this day how she broke her leg!!! She even had a seizure from one of the medications she was on (that was an ER night too...our niece's Bat Mitzvah a few weeks after Belin's). Seriously, enough with the drama.
Ok, this is not the most inspirational of posts, except to say that despite adversities (which sometimes seem outrageously abundant)...life goes on...it doesn't just stop because somebody (or somebody's) get sick...it flows and we must ride the waves up and down because they (the waves of life) don't stop...sometimes we get dunked under and we have to doggy paddle our way back up the surface again and find the sky...it's there, wide and open and full of the potential of another day of blessing. I do feel blessed. I absolutely do. My kids are getting healthier every day. (Rosie grew another 1/4inch) My husband is devoted and loving. I am feeling better this week (even with altered sleep patterns)...we will be celebrating our youngest daughter's bat mitzvah in just a few weeks with family and friends and you know what? Life is good. (wow, my punctuation is awful...sorry, need to sleep more).
I won't be online much over the next 6 weeks (Bat Mitzvah stuff and then a family vacation)...but I will try to stop by your blogs and post from time to time. Then mid-July I'll be back to my normal once-thrice weekly posts. (and hopefully lots of beautiful photos to share too!)
Happy SkyWatching everyone!
and gentle steps,
