Good news

Yesterday was a loooong but good day. My son had appointment with a neurologist in Chapel Hill. It was nice to have a doctor to talk to us, not at us or ignore what we (the ones who witnessed his seizures have seen). Dr. T was great. After listening to JJ's history, looking at the MRI (which was good) and having JJ do some tests. For right now, he does not think that JJ needs to be on seizure meds. Thank God!! Dr. T is in the process of getting JJ's records from the other neurologist so he can look at the results of the sleep deprived EEG. JJ may have to do another EEG. Dr. T thinks JJ might be one of rare group of kids who have febrile seizures after they are two. Febrile seizures, while scary to the parents and loved ones witnessing them, are okay. I could have kissed that man. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law went with me to Chapel Hill. James still has census training. I also believe the visit was such a successful because my husband wasn't there. At times, he can be very brutual on doctors. When I was pregnant, there six doctors in the practice--only one could stand to be around James. He was one the who delivered our son.

Meals were interesting yesterday. Breakfast was a ham biscuit and orange juice. Lunch at the hospital was baked chicken with mashed potatoes with gravy and a side of macaroni and cheese. I am trying to be more nutritious. After lunch, my sister-in-law wanted to go the huge mall in Durham. I told her I would wait in the car. So she, my son and her mother-in-law went in. Three hours later,a few calls to friends and family and reading half a book--I went to find them. My sister-in-law forgot to mention that one of her friends was meeting her at the small. We got to the mall at 2 p.m., we left at 7:15 p.m. So I had dinner at Chick-Filet. Love their nuggets and lemonade. JJ and I had ice cream.

But while waiting, there was some good news. The managing editor of the promising job prospect called. He did a preliminary interview. We will have a longer interview, by phone, on Wednesday at 3 p.m. I am beyond happy but remaining realistic. So yesterday was a good but long day. I made it home about 10:30. My husband was thoughtful enough to record Gossip Girl for me without me remaining him.
