Shortest Post You’ll Ever See From Me

I know I tend to ramble but this is not one of those times.  Robert is out of the hospital and I’m exhausted.  I’ll fill you in more tomorrow.  The important part is that Robert is out of the hospital and (keep your fingers crossed) infection free.  Thank you for your prayers, thoughts, well wishes and positive vibes – it worked! 

Hugs to all of you!

About Trish

Profile photo of Trish
I am Robert’s older sister and a freelance writer and am also a full-time Legal Administrator for a wonderful law firm (no, that is not an oxymoron). I am the caregiver for my youngest brother, Robert, who has suffered from uncontrolled epilepsy his entire life. In his late-40s now, he lives with me and my husband. I have somehow managed to navigate the maze of social services and government programs available to help Robert and continue to be amazed at the amount of time and persistence that is needed to do so. Robert finds happiness in simple pleasures like doing word search puzzles and watching his favorite shows (Family Feud and Jeopardy, of course!)

    Hi Trish,

    I’m so glad that Robert is doing better and out of the hospital. I hope you are able to get some much needed rest. And, that your mind can rest as well.

    Thank you for the updates; I’ll be anxious to hear how he’s doing.
