After a weekend of tears and constant questions I managed to return to a semblance of normality today. I needed this time to grieve, rage and question what I had been told - but I realised more than anything Mitch & Harry need me to be their Mummy. So this morning I spoke with our lovely local doctor and he contacted our new paediatrician to request an emergency appointment. Then I spoke with our Neo (another lovely doctor) who was able to clarify the issues for me and reassure me that he had organised for us to see the specialist next week. So things are moving slowly forward.
But what helped me more than anything was the outpouring of support we received from friends, family and strangers. I was humbled to receive a message from an inspiring woman Glenda Watson Hyatt - please take the time to look at her blog Do it myself and I am sure that you will be inspired too. I also received a lovely message of support from Shelly. Two ladies I had never met - but who reached out to me with such kindness.
Now that the dust has settled (so to speak) Kev & I are just taking each day as it comes. We are waiting to see the specialist and paediatrician and are hoping that we can some answers to our questions. For now we are focussing on taking care of the boys and each other.
Today I watched Mitchell determinedly sort through blocks and Harrison steadfastly working on his puzzles and I was amazed at how far they have come in the past few months. They are happy little boys and they love life. Despite this bump in the road we are blessed to be taking this journey with them...
