Katy Check-in!

It appears that Katy has viral meningitis and Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which I had never heard of.  There is also something going on with her tongue which make it difficult to talk.  As I understand it, that is not a usual symptom of these two problems.  She has been transferred by ambulance from the hospital in Danbury to Yale Pediatrics.  We are hopeful that there the diagnosis can be clear, and treatment begun.  

I know it's a cliche to say to notice this moment, but it is all we have.  Like that, life can change.  

I'm not sure I've ever shared here what Katy means to me.  She is a light, a gift.  She loves poetry, and is a great poet.  She is a good, kind, generous, sweet person with a heart bigger than her being.  A friend pointed out that maybe what brought me to my grandmother's dishes and old family recipes this week is a spirit of ancestral support.  I know we are all rooting for Kate.  She's had great care in the hospital she was in, and I know she will have great care at Yale.  For now, the moment, this moment, is it.  

Thank you for connection.  Thank you for support.
