This Has Been a Month of Extremes

March 22, 2010

We’ve gone from the lows of the first week and Katy’s seizure to some of the highs surrounding her birthday celebrations. We’ve had some extreme temper tantrums that we’ve never seen before accompanied by our introduction to Katy’s version of headbutts; and we’ve also experienced the joy at seeing Katy crawl nearly 10 feet for the first time (of course no one had a camera!).

People say all the time, “I don’t know how you deal with everything.” I don’t really know how to answer that. Shel and I deal with everything that comes along with Katy the same way you would deal with anything that happened with your kids. Let me be clear on something: I’m not saying we enjoy having to go to multiple doctors practically begging for answers when none seem to be out there for us. But if it was your child, wouldn’t you be doing the same thing? All of our kids have had something happen to them where we had to go to bat for them. And we acted the same way to find whatever answers we could to help our family. And we’ll continue to search for whatever answers there are for Katy.

And if you want to know why, just take a look at the following video and photos from the past couple of weeks.
