Stacie Lewis’ experience raising hell…
... erm, raising a little girl with severe brain damage. The blog began in 2009 when May was 4 1/2 months old.
Currently, May enjoys bouncing and the dulcet tones of dub step.

Oh, the delights of good health! Ah-goo! Ah-gah! Oh-boo! Since May’s health has returned, so have her giggles and cooing. She’s also back to bouncing, something she didn’t do for a couple of weeks.

May, I’m reaching out to you. Please forgive me. I know I called you the Great Fake when you were ill. I see now that was wrong. I know you are angry. But, I don’t think passing on the stomach flu to both your Mama and Daddy was the right way to express that anger. […]
