It's Katie's birthday today.  After a truly hellish day at work, the big guy and I drove to Katie's house with a balloon for her birthday.  When I knocked on the door I could hear her shriek of delight.  When the door opened she pulled me close and hugged me, for a long time.  Katie has never spontaneously hugged me I don't think.  It was wonderful.  And then she hugged the big guy.

Katie's never really noticed it's her birthday but today she did.  She knew what it was about.  When we were standing in the kitchen she signed, "sing", so we all sang Happy Birthday and there was much clapping.  Apparently she had spent the day at Fort Edmonton with all of the staff there wishing her a happy birthday as well.  We had cake and a small visit.  When it was time for us to leave Katie didn't act up at all.  She said goodbye and that was that. 

The new drug has worked wonders.  I am most thankful to have my girl back.

  1. Oh this is wonderful! I am thrilled to hear it. Best thing I've read or heard all day -- I was just feeling so lethargic and mildly depressed. My spirits are lifted -- I'm so glad for Katie! She must feel good.
