One good thing about this week is we learned a lot about what support means.
My mom and dad and brother and whole family are happy and crazy and positive. Most of the time we laugh and get really silly! Since it hasn't been very long that we've known about my chromosome disorder, there are scary days, too. Mom had a scary day this week and was sad for a little while. I think she kinda needed to just get rid of the scary to let more of the sunshine in. What helped was that we all love her so much, even when she's not being silly and crazy. Also, she has found lots of people online to share questions and fears with. Even if we mostly focus on each day that comes, we wouldn't be human if we didn't sometimes wonder about next week, next year and ten years from now. Being able to wonder about those things with friends is a really big blessing.
Tough week or not..I'm still determined to get around and explore! I can push myself up on my arms now! Next week...car keys???
