We had quite an uneventful weekend. It was chilly and rainy. We chose to stay in most of the weekend, except for a trip to Ikea. It is always a good place to go on a rainy day - I love to look at everything and Matt loves their hotdogs. (They are only 50 cents!) Sunday night I was able to meet up with 2 new and very dear friends. Carrie and I went to college together. Laura is a friend of Carrie's from church. They both have beautiful little boys with significant health issues and special needs. It is such a gift to be able to talk face to face with other moms facing the many doctor appointments, therapy sessions, medicines, etc. It is a wonderful time to feel understood and not alone. I am so thankful for their friendship.
Friday is the 1 year anniversary of Waverly's diagnosis. I have been consumed with the date quickly approaching since last month. I've been looking at my planner from last year and remembering the 6 weeks we were back in the US for all of the doctor appointments, like a strange memory countdown. I know it is simply a date, but our lives changed drastically that day.
