What to Do While Waiting

Today is not just another Saturday... It's the Saturday after a tragedy that tore so many families a part, that left the nation in tears, and had all of us hugging our kiddos extra tight.

It got me thinking about how we had just gotten our news, and how, in my backwards stages of grief, I was already angry and beginning to wonder if it could get any worse for Renn. Obviously, I was hit with a harsh sense of reality.

Some parents received the worst news imaginable, yesterday. And my heart aches so much for them. So, while we wait on our own news from the Neurologist at UCSF (we must wait until Tuesday, because we heard from the NP at UCSF last night, and apparently Renn's doctor got stuck in a meeting yesterday, so she wasn't able to get back to us as promised. The NP apologized profusely, but said that there is a huge conference filled with Pediatric Neurologists and Radiology specialists that the doctor wants to take Renn's MRI and EEGs to, on Tuesday, at 8:00 a.m.), we are making special cards for the students affected by the horrific events, in Connecticut.

Will you join us? We find that what we do with our time while we wait for things, can shape the way you take the news that you're in fact waiting for

Please send cards and love to the kids at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Make a difference.

Thank you.


  1. That's a wonderful idea. I know my kids will love the idea of making cards to send. They've been asking questions about what happened, because they caught part of the news.

    (((hug)))I hope you don't have to wait much longer to hear back.

  2. Thinking of you and wishing peace and comfort for you.
