I’m sorry I’ve been MIA | June 11, 2015

I had a concussion on Tuesday (my birthday!) and haven’t been very functional.

I’ll be back as soon as my eyeballs stop zooming. ☹

Thanks for being so wonderful and understanding. I appreciate it — and you — a lot.

  3. Get Better Soon! Going to see specialist in 14 days – will see the whole team this time! Lots to talk about! Also about the new VNS. Thanks for all your info! You are a big part of helping me get to know more about my situation which I have had since birth! The younger you’re born with it, the more difficult it is to treat – right? Thanks.

  15. Thanks for all of your good wishes.

    Arthur has proclaimed me “birthday queen” until Sunday.

    But boy, am I sore from that fall. I even lost my shoes.

    But I didn’t break my phone this time! 🙂

  21. Phylls, this is so awful! Feel better soon, but take time to recover – concussions are so strange and the brain really needs rest to heal.
    Take care and thanks for all that you do!
