I found this in my inbox:
I want to thank all of you who commented below. It was a nice combination of coddeling and tough-love. Sometimes a mom just gets hit with several things in a row; add in a cup of sleep deprivation, and off the handle she flies! I truly appreciate the support and the love and the “quit being a baby” and letting me vent without ignoring me. I do feel a lot better.
On another good note, we got Cooper’s blood results and all is good, save for one test that indicates that there’s some inflamation going on somewhere. Considering he was busy rashing-it-up while we were at the lab getting the blood drawn, I’d say we’re safe to ignore those results. Also, found out that even though he is the spitting image of Justin, that child has the exact same blood type as me. Phew! Glad I passed something good onto him (since the hands I gave both my children will be the bane of their piano-playing existence).
