I have so many thoughts swirling in my head.
So many things I want to say.
But I can’t… cause I’m struggling to process it really myself.
I’m really not trying to be one of those vague woe is me social media posts people.. You know..
But guys, let me just say…
Specialist #25 had no answers for Maddie’s bilateral foot drop. We stumped him. And he was supposed to BE THE ONE. She has no nerve damage and no neurological reason for her feet to have just stopped working. The doctor was nice and concerned, but he had no answers.
Guys, I was scared to death over this appointment. We were assured that we would get some answers today. But Maddie knew. She didn’t have her hopes up.
And why should she?
Her entire life has been No Answer. No Reason. No Explanation.
So we have been referred to Specialist #26 and hospital #7.
And yes, of course we are thankful that more of the incredibly scary diagnoses have been ruled out. But could we, maybe, someday get an answer?
The yearning doesn’t go away.
The ache is ever present.
The hurt tangible.
