I've had a long, busy day, so I'll keep this post short.
On a daily basis I notice things that I can do that I never dreamed possible. The other night I realized that I can cook over a hot stove top and hold John at the same time. Back in the day, I couldn't stand while cooking. I would think about how my mom would hold me while she cooked our family dinner every night. I always felt bad that I couldn't do that with my girls, but accepted it just the same. It's hard to believe that I can successfully do this task now. Plus, I'm sure there are moms out there that moan and groan when they have to make dinner with a child attached to their hip. To me, it is pure joy! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a break from cooking, but when I do cook, I am grateful that I can do it with ease.
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
