After the 3 1/2 hour neuroophthalmology appointment, Mom moved on to her next appointment with a psychologist who specializes in brain injury. No break, no rest. Somewhere along the way Mom recognized an important thing- she doesn't want to know about the accident. She doesn't want to know what happened, how much 'less dead' she looks, any of it. It wakes the sleeping fear that this might not be 'over,' that the accident may occur again. And, correspondingly, Mom cannot not be exposed to conversations she doesn't want to be involved in if she doesn't speak UP for herself! So don't be offended if you see a new edgier Mom as she tries out new boundaries!

With love from the house of empowerment-
