We are about to celebrate Lu's third birthday in a few days and I am super excited for it, so I apologize for writing this downer of a post. There are just some things that I can't not share, even if they are sad. This is the reality of Rett Syndrome. But...another reality of Rett Syndrome is the joy Chad and I glean from each and every tiny accomplishment of Lucy's. Yesterday she said with her PODD, "Let's go, visit, my, new, bedroom". Today I helped her walk from the living room all the way to the car and back again when we returned home from our errands. Sometimes a word pops right out of her mouth, clear as a bell, usually "yeah", "Da", "Mo(m)".
"You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both, and there you have the facts of life..."
