Sunday evening I was packing an overnight bag for Ricki and I, for our overnight stay in the hospital. As I was arranging our things, Ricki noticed the letter with the results from her first sleep study. It started with Ricki’s medical history, and she started reading it aloud.
With nearly every line she passed, digesting the imfprmation. Often she would ask questions.
“Yes, Ricki, you had a small surgery on your heart when you were a baby.”
“You remember, when you were in the hospital this summer.”
“Ricki, you KNOW that you have Down syndrome.”
And she nodded her head.
That’s totally stunning!
