All Manner of Healing
March 19, 2008 by Niksmom
Lots to say today with no way to write what I really want to about Nik, his communication devices, health, life, and a host of other things. I fell down some stairs yesterday and injured my left wrist and shoulder. I’m typing one-handed (actually two-fingered) on an ergonomic keyboard while wearing a splint and sling; it’s sloooow going, folks! Until I am back at full speed, I want to point you to some other posts and people.
First off, check out these posts
about Autism: the Musical
which will premiere on HBO
on March 25th. And spread the word!
If you don’t already know the Bird Flock, please check out Rhett’s Journey. I originally found this blog through Jennifer at Pinwheels. I stayed because I fell in love with Rhett and his inspiring, loving family. But folks, this isn’t just a plug for someone else’s blog about their adorable child.
The Birds have been through such an incredibly hellish year
which has impacted just about every aspect of their lives —and it doesn’t seem to be letting up. Reading between the lines of what was not
said in this post
—because her other children read it, too, and Pam didn’t want to freak them out— little Rhett is facing some extremely serious surgery this week and has more on the near horizon. The outcomes of these surgeries may well mean his life span could be shortened. Significantly shortened.
It’s a scenario no family should ever have to face.
If you believe in miracles and Divine intervention, I implore you to please read about Rhett and then add yours to the many, many voices being lifted up in prayer for Rhett and his family. If you believe in other manners and methods of healing and spirituality, I urge you to add yours to the energy and visioning being sent out to the Universe as well.
