Home Together

On Thursday I spent the morning and early afternoon with my daughter.

It was the first time since the seizure--almost 10 months ago--that I was alone with her for more than an hour or two.

We read. I wrote a couple of emails. She played with her dollhouse. We went for a short walk. We had gooey sunbutter sandwiches for lunch.

"I'm bored," she said, as morning turned into afternoon.

It was a boring, perfect day.


  1. You were very brave to do that, Grace. According to the Massachusetts RMV, going 6 months without a seizure means that they are controlled. Congratulations!

  2. You have such wonderful punch lines, with absolutely the appropriate photo as illustration. Love from Edinburgh, Dad

  3. The photo says it all. After a stroke being bored can be novel change. It's amazing how the littlest thing can mean so much.
