Somewhere Else

Do you ever have one of those times when you get a phone call and you wish you could instantly be somewhere else?  Yesterday afternoon while I was in Walmart getting a few things before heading to the first of two meeting I had, I got a phone call from the nurse at Bryce and Annalise's school.  She told me that Bryce had what she believed was a seizure.  It had lasted approximately 1 minute and 30 seconds.  It was different then any they had ever seen in Bryce.  We have only ever seen possible silent seizures that last a few seconds.  The nurse said that he was now fine and that there was no need for me to pick him up right away, but I could if I wanted to.  Oh how I wanted to!  I wanted to be there that second holding my son.  Since my meetings were close to the school and then at the school and she assured me over and over that he was fine, I paid for my items, headed out to my van, had a quick cry, quickly pulled myself together and headed off to the meetings.  I made it through them, but I have to be honest, my mind was somewhere else during those meetings and I was relieved when that moment came that it was time to pick Bryce up from his class.  I am relieved that he has such great teachers and a nurse at his school that are watching and aware of what is going on.  I am thankful that I get to spend all day today with my son.
