I picked up Akila and brought her home. Michael came home from work, and I had the surgery. Akila was very mellow and quiet most of the day. Dorothy, Julie and I were talking awhile ago about how pleasant our kids with FASD are when they are sick. It is sad, but it is when I can enjoy Akila the most. I should have known she was sick when she didn't kick or hit me before school today- the first day in over a month that has happened.
Sometimes, I wish that there was a virus in a pill I could give her, the common cold pill or something. Sounds cruel, I know it. But the reason I want it is good- because I really love to be able to enjoy her. As icky as I have felt today, it was nice to be around her and I haven't felt like that in awhile. 33 days to be exact. Today was the first day in 33 days that she has not harmed anyone in our family. Praise the Lord. And what great timing, considering the minor pain I am which has me a little bit out of it.
