    some of you may know that my boy, mikey is on the autism spectrum. he attends an elementary school disabled preschool program. the head of the child study team is a man named dr. cliff barneman. mikey entered the program at 2 yrs old and instantly connected with "dr. b", as he calls him. between the am and pm session, he has lunch with dr. b in the office. dr. b just ran the nyc marathon, citing mikey as his inspiration. here is an article. i am so proud of how far mikey has come in the program, and honored that dr. b has such a bond with him.

    a sidenote.... today i got a call from the school nurse that mikey had a seizure at school. he has a history of febrile seizures... about 6-7 total so far. its the scariest thing to witness, yet completly benign. so i get to the school and it just so happens that there was a substitute teacher today. a young woman that was so upset and scared out of her wits. talk about jumping in w/ 2 feet! mikey was sitting in circle time when the fit began. he stopped breathing and the teacher got the other lil kids out of the class. they were all crying and worried about him. they all came back in to see he was ok and say goodbye. it was so cute. so i brought him to the pedi and she said if i was comfortable taking him home, i could. i just had to get bloodwork done at a local lab. so i was driving to the lab, and the poor guy had another one. pulled over, called 911, started cpr. standing in the rain... leaning over him in my car. the medics and police were there in less than 3 minutes. (kudos to toms river, nj!!) so... off to the er we go. turns out lil guy has a blood infection and was given an iv of antibiotics. scary stuff. 2 MRSA cases were reported in our district... so i was freakin...
    he is back to normal now, thank god! here is an er pic.... couldn't ya just die from that sweet, sad face??!!

    Life is Prescious

    High five for keeping your cool mom! I know the feeling when the doctors tell you your child has a condition that you can't do anything about. Love 'em all unconditionally!

    Your family is in our prayers for a speedy recovery, and many happy days ahead.

    Sincerely, BRKT, Donna
