On support systems and asking for help

This was a bit of a rough week for me.  I had a big chronic fatigue flare up, probably   triggered by stress (ya think??) and an intense day trip to a consultation with the big guns pediatric neurologist in Sacramento.  The upshot of that appointment is more testing, more testing, and more testing.

Waiting…and waiting…

I wouldn’t have made it through without my wildly spread out and randomly assembled support network.  So thank you!

To my oldest son for not losing it when I asked him to watch his youngest brother for 20 minutes.

To my neighbor Melissa, aka the beautiful Yummomummo for taking my youngest to school along with her brood.

To Dr Mike Slone, of Dynamic Brain Solutions, for inviting Kyle to visit him at the fire house after the appointment. That motivated him to get through the long drive, the long wait, and the long appointment.

To Melinda at Gluten Free Specialty in Sacramento for always being so kind and welcoming when we stop by.

To Marivela, our nanny, for making this crazy life possible.

To my amazing husband who is off slaying dragons, conquering new markets, and bringing home the bacon, so I can stay home and do this (although, driving 250+ miles in a day for a doctor’s appointment isn’t really staying home…)

It’s a patchwork of a little village, but it’s ours.
