We Are Not Bags of Lettuce

MaxedOutMama, a fellow Georgian, has an excellent post on recovery and grace. She is recovering from a neurological illness…

which caused severe brain and nerve damage. When I use the word “severe”, I mean so profound that I feel personally offended when I read about a doctor referring to Terri Schiavo as a bag of lettuce. The description could just as well have been applied to me, I think, and it fits neither of us. Bags of lettuce we were not.

It reminded me of when my girl-child had her seizure earlier this year. Looking back, I can see her surrounded by angels. Then, it wasn’t so easy.

Read the whole thing. It’s glorious.
