Celebratory

Being the proud mama that I am, I wanted to share this. Prentke-Romich thinks my son is a hero. I think that's still a bit odd since I'm considering them the heroic ones, but we're all entitled to our own opinions.

Of course, I'm not saying my son is not a hero. I just bought a bracelet that says Down Syndrome. My Child. My Hero. It's not classy or fancy, but it perfectly states how I feel. I wore it for a week before I realized the migraine I had for 5 days on end stemmed from that. I should have known better when it was advertised as a keychain decoration, but it fit my wrist so I wore it anyway. It's now on my keychain where it belongs and my head is pain free.

I'm such an idiot at times.

Anyway - this is what I'm sharing. Go check it out. You can probably hear me smiling.

I love how they put this up -- and how they gave your address, too! You are so lucky and so blessed in so many ways. I can't wait to hear how it goes as he continues to gain proficiency!

Oh and umm out of curiosity, do you have any sense of what was in the key chain decoration that gave you a migraine?

Is that the machine? The saving grace? I can tell he's adapted quite well to it.

What are you trying to do to me. I cried twice this morning at out Ds Guild during a parent breakfast (some happy, some frustrated tears) I cried during the Lion King play when Mufasa died and I sit down for a relaxing evening to catch up on some of my favorite peeps and you have me crying again! Cut it out. Well, maybe not. I love hearing about Micah and his voice, even if I have to read through tears.

The entire story, from both sides, is a true testament to the fact that there *are* still good people in this world.

I, for one, would not have thought that I had developed some type of reaction to the metal in the bracelet. That's just weird.

As for Micah - well - we all knew he rawcks. Here's to more and more progress!
