The Ordeal.

Yesterday my 3 year old had a seizure. I've recounted the episode many times already; to doctors, specialists, family members, and close friends. I'm tired of telling the story. Suffice to say, it was frightening.

Srulik lost his ability to speak for a couple of hours, and also experienced some facial paralysis. He was in the hospital for more than a day, being poked, prodded, sedated, and tested. The very good news is, he came home tonight. He's back to his usual mischief. The neurologist thinks it was a fluke, but we have to keep an eye on him.

These past 36 hours have been stressful. I am drained both physically and emotionally. But I emerged with some good things:

1. Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital is excellent, if chas v'shalom you need to be there.

2. I am very blessed to have loving friends and family. They called, took care of my children, cooked us supper.

3. I am so very grateful that Srulik is okay, because I saw children there who weren't.
