In Which I Forget An Anniversary And The Heat Wave Continues

I realized today that the third anniversary of Jer's injury in Afghanistan came and went last week and didn't even cross my mind.  Jer didn't mention it either.  I think it's kind of nice that we've gotten to the point that we don't feel it's a date we need to dwell on.  While the event definitely changed our lives, mostly what it changed was the details.  Jer's still the same wonderful man I began a relationship with over a decade ago.  I'm pretty glad about that.

In other news, Connor woke up running a fever this morning and had two seizures right off the bat.  Today was not a fantastic day for a fever, as it was supposed to be one of the hottest days of the year.  I figured the best thing to do would be to vacate the house and rent a hotel room, which I wasn't really looking forward to but couldn't think of another good solution.  Luckily the same gracious friend who let us hang out all day yesterday opened up her home to us again, this time for the entire night if necessary.

Connor ended up rallying towards the end of the day, and his fever disappeared as mysteriously as it came.  So we left for home around 8:30 in the evening.  It's cooled down enough that Connor's back in his room now, and the worst of the hot weather should be over for a while.  If we do get more hot weather it will be after we have our air conditioner installed, which happens on Tuesday.  Then we'll have one less thing to worry about!

I'm glad you got some relief from the weather!

I don't know what to say when the anniversary is of something kind of horrible, so I'm just going to tell you how impressed by am by all that you and your family managed to overcome.

Hope Connor has a seizure-free day today!
