Fall 2013

That would be both Miss Maia and I. Matthew had a tough day so I was wiped out emotionally by dinner time. Maia is having her sleep study tonight. Doctors want to make sure she isn't having a different type of seizure overnight or that she doesn't have sleep apnea which is causing a fair amount of anxiety when she lies flat.
One and a half hours to get all the leads and monitors on, of which Maia cried for about 88 of those 90 minutes. I had to hold her as she screamed and fought the techs who were placing the electrodes. I seriously considered saying "forget it." this child has been through so much in the past few months. It was traumatic for both of us. She is now sleeping quietly and did manage to smile at me with that precious face for a few moments before dozing off. I hope that one day she will understand that my heart aches for what she has experienced.
On a positive note, we did have the joy of visiting with our friends who are just home from Sevastopol with their little guy and oh my, he is absolutely adorable!
Also, thanks for your thoughts and prayers. At 101, we certainly did not expect Grandma to be with us forever. And she is in a much better place. But, there is still a bit of sadness.

  1. How did the sleep study go?
    I hope you all are doing all right. I miss you all so much. Hope to talk to you soon - when you have a few free minutes...I know they don't come often.
