oh and we met the goal & also, Cincinnati

October 11, 2012

Remember when I said we were doing the hydrocephalus association’s walk? And that I wanted to raise $1,000 for Asher’s Noggins!?

We totally did that!

Isn’t that the best!?

I learned a lot that day, and I’ve been wanting to sit down to write about it, but again, time keeps on slippin’ slippin’ slippin’…into the future.

Today, by a random twist of Internet Fate, or Serwebdipity, I’m over at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital blog. There’s a wonderful woman there that uses words like penultimate in conversation and then I look up the word and I’m all, OHHHH and then of course I just SAY that I didn’t know what the word was and had to look it up. I’m a pleasure to work with, I tell ya.

(Also. Serwebdipity is obviously a word that should be in the dictionary with a meaning like; a serendipitous or fortuitous meeting on the world wide interweb.)

So anyway, I wrote about having a child with a medical condition and what that feels like. You can head on over to Cincinnati if you’d like to read that.

Also. Thank you to every one of you that donated in honor of our boy. I use a lot of words and know what most of them mean and I still can’t come up with a good enough way to thank you.

Besides this:



{a portion of my guest post at The Cincinnati Children’s blog}

“There’s this place between being terrified and peaceful that only parents who have special needs or sick children know. We all know fear and we all know hope, but both have their extremes. We know the extremes like a lot of people don’t and others do, so the middle is different for us…” {read the rest}

Another amazing and powerful post. The way you capture the little moments and make us see how big they are is extraordinary. And I love that so often I come away from your blog feeling grateful for my life. You are a gift to the blogosphere. :)
