Thankfully, the antibiotics have kicked in. It seems as if you’re over the hump and can see the light now. But it was rough getting there! You got worse before you got better. Much fatigue. One night while practicing piano, I witnessed you jump from a pain in your head. That same night, you told me of purple swirly spots you were seeing. That was it! The next day we went to the doctor. She actually said that this happens and that we should continue with the full course of antibiotics and then see. Sure enough, she was right.
I had asked you, Maya, if there was anything I could do to to help you. You responded by saying, “just continue to be you.” You paused for a moment then added, “and be by my side.” Oh my darling, you know how to get me all choked up! And you’ve got it, babe!
P.S. Yay!!! You are better. Still a little bit more fatigued than normal, but MAYA IS BACK!!! Ready for a fun filled summer ahead.
