Blogger Idol 2011. Come on guys.....some of you have wonderful blogs and the world needs to know you are there. As I said before, auditioning is painless and fairly quick. All you need to do is a email BI 250-500 words about yourself, why you think your blog is BI worthy and a link to your blog and you are done. And don't tell me that 250-500 words is intimidating. If you blog.....you can do 250-500 words in your sleep...and I have! So come on guys.....get your blog in and let BI and the world discover you! Auditions must be in by tonight!
Dr. S has talked me off a ledge more than once over David's seizures and his visits in the hospital though sometimes frustrating for both of us (more so for him I am sure) are always tremendously reassuring to me. And many is the time that Dr. S has received a late night call from me when David was having seizures or simply just not acting right. Always I hear the same patient voice on the other end calmly directing me and patiently reassuring me.
As far as David goes....I have been told on more than one occasion that David is one of Dr. S's favorite patients and although Dr. S's manner is always uber professional and extremely business-like......David can always make him laugh and if he doesn't get a smile from David, Dr. S will always turn to the resident and say...."Something is wrong. David always smiles. He is really not feeling well if he does not smile!" While I can't exactly say that Dr. S has saved David's life (that honor goes to Dr. Grundmeyer and Dr. Schooley) I can definitely say that he has maintained it and made sure that we give David everything he needs to make his life as full and seizure free as possible. He has also been key in helping me to understand seizures and keep both my cool and sanity when they occur.
So today I say.....thank you Dr. S for all you do for David and our family and for children all across the area who like David would not have the quality of life they do....without your kindness, patience and medical expertise. You make our world....a much better place!
And on that note....I wish you all a non-Monday Monday. Yeah....you figure it out! Happy Monday!
