Thank you for all your prayers, emails and comments! I can't tell you how much they comforted me.
For those of you who don't know, my oldest son (age 20) was diagnosed with serotonin syndrome on April 1st after begin taken to the ER, non-responsive with seizure type spasms. Serotonin syndrome is caused by too much serotonin in the brain. We had a very scary couple of days in the ICU, followed by a week of unusual behavior. He is doing much better now, though he has physical therapy for muscle loss due to the seizures and he tires very easily. But his brain and kidney functions are good!
And his mom? It's an experience that I'm sure will remain one my worst memories. Even up to last Sunday, I was feeling a bit "frail" but things are settling down and we are getting back into our normal pattern.
I think I may have gone from red to gray in one week.
Parenting definitely requires something more potent than 28 day hair color!
Thank you for having been there with kind words and prayers. ((HUGS))
