Actually, I don’t think I took a nap, and only X had her first day of school, so Zo stayed with me. Zo’s first day of kindergarten was today, but Wednesday we had her orientation and I did accidentally skip lunch. And the classroom was hot.

I am going to be doing the writing on the pages, when I feel well enough. I am so glad I was able to take Zo to school today. It would have been devastating to miss that. And my birthday tattoo, which I did have to cancel, was able to be rescheduled quickly which is more than I dared hope. It is Wednesday, the day after my next appointment with Dr Mitzi – the nurse practitioner this time. On Monday, Dr. S gave me a referral to a new neurologist, recommended by a good friend. Dr H is at the same facility where my very first neurologist practiced. I don’t have an appointment set yet, but this definitely feels right.
