The Little-Known First Stage of Grief: Sarcasm

An excerpt from a conversation on Tuesday:

Dr. I: ... And don't think this is God's fault. God is not punishing you by doing this.

Me: Please. I don't believe in that stuff. Besides, if God wanted to punish me, I think he did a pretty good job with my first son. This? is overkill. I haven't been that bad.

I'll explain everything. As soon as I can.

Ethan's surgery is tomorrow. Suddenly, it's the last thing on my mind.

Good for you! I mean, I guess I can see where he was coming from, but still, what a thing to say.
Frankly, I can't think of anyone who deserves this shit less than you and Jete.

I hope all went well with Ethan's surgery today.

I just found your blog and after reading through your archives can really appreciate what you've been through. I'm in a very similiar situation with a 6 yr old, a 4 yr old with special needs (very much like Ethan) and a 2 yr old (also with a speech delay!). You've put into words a lot of what I've also felt over the last four years. Its a very tough road we're on. I think you're doing a great job!

I've read your blog often but never left a comment. I just wanted to let you know that I hope everything is going okay.

Thinking of you and yours,
Kathleen
