This morning when I came downstairs:

MM: "Mom, I am so glad you are still here"
Me: "Me too"
MM: "I am so glad to see you. Are you better yet? I love you Mommy. Do you love me?"
Me: "Of course I love you & yes, I am getting better"

This was repeated about 20 times already this morning.

That is the best medicine/healing power of all.

It is so hard for her to have me disappear. She wanted to go to Nana's yesterday, but cried cause she kept saying "Mommy won't be here" implying I was going away again. I hope this anxiety resides for her soon & she realizes it was just a temporary leave. Thanks for all the well wishes.

One more thing in regards to MM. Her poor little legs need a desperate work out. She hasn't been to therapy in two weeks cause I have been in the hospital. Her lower legs almost look atrophied. Her daddy tries hard, but doesn't do all the "extras" like I do. Her feet are so down & inward and keep having spasms. This weekend is going to be lower leg boot camp for her. She is not going to like it. We were also supposed to go for a new casting to get new DAFOs. Hopefully they can get us in this week. She needs new ones quickly.

I agree that repeated reassurance is good medicine.

I liked your reference to working on her legs as 'boot camp'. That conveys your meaning and commitment well.

I also like DAFOs.

Glad to read that you are home again. Stay well.

Hijack my post? you are too funny...Of course you can hijack any post you like I am never offended. There are two I have used eyebuydirect (Regan's current glasses) and Zenni Optical. Both are way cheaper than the optomotrist. I have also gotten a great deal at the Super Walmart optical store before. Anyway the main point is to get your prescription from the dr.....a nd not buy their glasses. Then you can get it cheaper some where else. Also check if there are any online coupon codes to help make it even cheaper. Glad to help!
