Thank you for visiting my blog.
I certainly did not expect many people to read this blog. I guess you could say I am an accidental blogger. I thought the FB friends I have would take a look at it, ruminate, educate themselves and perhaps give a cursory nod to my story. But it seems as if it has evolved into something more. I am the proud mother of a brilliant 9 year old who is fighting his way back from PANDAS. I am a few months away from receiving my MD, and hope to begin residency in the summer of 2014.
On November 3, 2013 I posted this note on my Facebook account:
Today is the first day in 383 days that I haven’t awakened with the bitter knawing panic that had become my constant companion, and the fear that I was running out of time to save my son. We are in the hospital for the fourth time since Nov 2012. I promised Noah that we were not leaving until I got what I wanted. Thank God for sending us an excellent team of specialists. This time the doctors are listening. And yesterday at 6:45pm we had a breakthrough. He’s coming back to us. But I guess I’d have to tell you where we have been to understand where we are. I am a very private person, and my fingers are trembling a bit typing this, but there are things going on in the world of pediatrics that most people know nothing about. Everyone needs to know. This could be happening to your child, your niece/nephew, your neighbors kids or that student in your class that suddenly somehow isn’t the same.
So I’ve decided to tell it.
