I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last updated Joscelyn’s blog! I suppose I could blame the lapse on the fact that we’re just so busy with her various therapies (which is true) but really I think it’s more a testament to the fact that we’ve settled into our “new normal”. Life as a special needs parent is certainly still challenging (and requires a lot of coffee) but I don’t find myself struggling with the reality of it like I did when Joss was first diagnosed.
We’ve also been blissfully free of any medical drama for some time now, which has thankfully provided me with less blog fodder. (I don’t watch “ER” or any other hospital dramas on TV, thank you. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.) ;)
So what HAVE we been doing for the last few months? I could tell you, but as our friends at 1, 000 Words Gallery say, “A picture is worth 1, 000 words”, so I’ll show you instead. :)

Doesn’t she look fantastic?
that’s one happy kid right there!
Florida Hospital for Children made a beautiful video summarizing Joscelyn’s journey to this point. We hope you’ll watch it and share it with anyone you know who might need a little encouragement, especially if they’re curious about the possibilities of epilepsy surgery.
Yes, that’s me, grayer and wiser and proud of every one of those silver strands I’ve earned so far on this journey!
I’d like to tell you that I’ll be better about updating Joss’ blog in the future but I can’t promise anything.
After all, I’ve got a very active little girl to chase after. ;)
