Default Annemarie - about Monday

Please try not to read too much into the date that they have asked you to come in. Look what happened with Jamie. He was totally convinced that he could hear something different in the nurse's voice on the phone and that he was about to get the bad news. But lo and behold, he was wrong and his muscle biopsy was good news not bad. You never know.
In our situation, it is easy to read all sorts of things into stuff that you'd not even notice otherwise. I think VMD said that one time someone in his class mentioned that a family member had died and in his mind, he was like "if this person says it was ALS, it's a sign". (I think it was VMD). I have done the same. I met someone recently who told me that her dad is in a wheelchair and how awful things are for him. I didnt ask why - was too scared - and then she volunteered it. "He has ALS or Lou Gerhigs disease. You might not have heard of it". Ugh, I thought it was a sign too.
Who knows. Life is mysterious sometimes but I really wouldnt worry too much about the date.
I will be thinking of you and hoping for a good outcome. I have my next appointment with my nuero, the week that my little one starts kindergarten. That truly sucks. I will be an emotional wreck as it is. So I know what you are going through.
