One year

Happy anniversary to us. Shade has made it through a full year since the nuclear bomb went off in his brain stem.

I would wax poetic on the emotional journey we’ve been on, or the growth we’ve seen, but that seems too corny. (Plus, I hate seeing growths. They’re disgusting.)  Suffice it to say, I’m glad my family is safe and close. And I’m glad we have close friends. And I’m glad that throughout this traumatic affair, Shade has managed to remain a happy kid. What more could we want?

I think the best way to express that happiness is with food and beverages. So we’re throwing a survival party today. All are welcome, so consider this an invitation. I tried to get as many emails on an Evite as I could but I always miss someone. Call me for directions if you need them.

    By the way, yes I did put their instead of they’re, but to defend myself, I’ve had a lot of beers to celebrate.

    It’s been amazing – and inspiring – to watch/read about the Crampton perseverance. Way to go, Shade!
