And i have cried every day for 1 year, 1 month, and 1week. LET SLIP THE DOGS OF WAR! i was prepared for anything the doctors at the shepherds center said this afternoon. this was a final evaulation. "can she go back to teaching without supervision?"
that was really our only question. if she needed "accominadations"...supervision, would our school district budget for it? i truly did not care what shepherds center said, i knew they had her best interest at heart, and i may have to battle our school district.
i was prepared either way. Claire's blood pressure was 130 over 90...she was worried. hell. we both were. Moose and tater had spent a week in washington state, visiting the great aunt ( Dana...101 yrs. young!) they had a blast and saw hurricane ridge,
visited allrecipes in seattle, ate at ray's boathouse ( great suggestion ww!), the tidal pools at salt creek, the indian reservation, they had a blast. totally exhausted when i picked them up. they said jack in the box out there was very good (lol) "the denver
bowl rocks!) ...they really had a blast. i would love to visit the great northwest one day and have a " denver bowl" too. my girls are screwballs, but i love them with a ferocity i can not describe., i told the tater to blow a 100 bucks on something, anything...i
would not judge. they picked up rocks along the shore and sent them back unitied postal service in a flat-rate $ 10.50 box. " over ten ,but not 11 bucks " our mailman is gonna have a hernia according the the moose and tater. as Claire and i were driving
back from atlanta this late afternoon we were listening to the radio and singing along to some great songs. a blast from the past comes on, " only you" by yaz.. kinda made the moment. i asked her her favorite meal she ever had. she replied the one that
i had made her. grilled salmon, lobster, grilled taters, onions sweet taters, asparagus. i said are you sure? i told her i would make that this evening. she said sunday is better. we got pizza from a neighbor's son's pizza place.. free.. my neighbors rock!....i
started this blog ( journey) a day after Claire had her stroke, i think. we we were going to the dekalb international farmers market on a sunday, when we spent that day at the hospital trying to find out why her migranes would not subside and why she was
feeling so weird. they took a ct scan and ran blood tests. they released her she suffered a massive stroke the next day less then 24 hours later. i was beyond crazy MAD! and scared. we left shephers center today and forgot the map-quest to dekalbs'. the
doctors released her today from having to have supervision when she returns to her classroom. she is now able to do what she loves . we went and picked up the pizzas. we are both totally physically and mentally exhausted. she tells me lets take a short-cut
home. i agree, of course. it's to her class room. i go in with her. she is considering where to poistion the tables, chairs, her " brag" board ( the one with prior national day winners names on it) i tell her i want to smoke, i walk outside and hope she doesn;t
see me crying. THANK YOU EVERYONE THAT HAS HELPED IN HER RECOVERY! she is a miracle! may god bless!
