My apologies for the sudden interruption of the Great Fortune Cookie Challenge.
On Wednesday my older son had a medical crisis that put him in the hospital. That’s where I’ve been, from Wednesday night until late last night. Michael has a very complicated medical history. It’s essential for me or my husband to be with him all the time so the inevitable questions that arise can be answered.
Michael can’t hold a normal conversation in terms of verbal give and take, so we must speak for him. I provide the nurses with a guide to interpreting Michael’s gestures and vocalizations, but it really does take someone who knows him well to understand and interpret his replies.
Michael had surgery. He’s on the mend. We hope to bring him home in a day or two.
Thank you for your patience. I will get the Challenge up and running again and the fun will proceed!
