I feel like I should write a post today. I dunno, I’m just giddy, I guess. Does anyone else say “Wee!” when they’re super excited, or is that just me? So many things have been pretty awesome lately. Codename “Dr. Wile E. Coyote” and I became Facebook official yesterday. We met on Summer Project in Milwaukee, like, two years ago. Not that we’ve spent much time in the same place since then. Unless you count Skype? No, I didn’t think so. But, some of our friends from Project those few years ago weren’t at all surprised. Is it weird when everyone else catches something, but it takes the actual people a while to figure it out? Anyway, moving on. This post is not just about Dr. Wile E. J At the beginning of the summer, I prayed for a friend. Well, it’s the end of the summer, but I totally found one. She’s going to PT school, and this morning over breakfast told me all about what part of the brain affected what, and she tried things and watched me walk and stuff like a physical therapist does. She asked me if she could do tests on me, because studying on a live person is way better than flashcards. So, she’s gonna work on rehab stuff with me, strengthening and walking right again. I’m pretty excited. I like hearing about what other people know a lot about and are interested in. I asked my friend Marissa last year about WWI, and her being a history nerd completely, was super excited that I was actually interested and genuinely wanted to know. Kind of like Sarah this morning. She told me to stop her if I didn’t want to hear that stuff, but I was really excited. She told me where she thought some of my lesions might be and why. When I was first diagnosed, I didn’t care about these things whatsoever. A teenager who didn’t care where the heck the lesions were, just that they were there? I find talk about the complexity of the human body very interesting. And bam, Dr. Wile E. isn’t a doctor, yet, but he’s applying to med schools, and warned me that I’d hear a lot about what he’s learning when he does start school. I’m not a science person, but I do find it interesting. I’m a music and writing-type person. The fine arts are my specialty. Everything else? Well, that’s why we’re all so different.
I’m also super excited, because on Monday, I’m going to be going over my story with Jody, and she’ll be done copy-editing. Dr. Wile E. says he wants to be done going through it around then, too. Wee! My cousins are back from being camp counselors at Christikan (I may have spelled that wrong), and I got to help my aunt Sally set up her first-grade classroom yesterday. Reading through some psalms just makes me excited about Jesus, too. He has done so many great things, from Abraham to Moses, and now for us, it’s so amazing. He is perfect and just and righteous. David’s psalms of praise reflect the praises of my heart. I write psalms, too, but not very many are so wonderfully worded. Just READING the Word instead of writing is like a hug from God, and it’s all I need. I write as a form of praise to him, also, but no words nor songs nor works can ever thank him enough for all he is and does. He’s just great. Wee!
