Sometimes, conversations just need endnotes - like, the link to I Can Has Cheezburger or everyone's favorite anesthiologist blog, The Underwear Drawer, or the name of an artist or something. Usually I send these in an e-mail, but I'm posting this one here instead.
Today I saw Talented Hands at a sing-along and was telling her about The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down. I'd never even bothered to mention it to her before because I assumed this was the kind of book people tell you about all the time when your baby has seizures. But I was wrong - she'd never heard of it. So, Miss Handypants, here's the link! Read it! Buy it from Amazon! Or you can borrow it from me, but my copy is here and you are there!
For those who haven't read it and weren't at our conversation, it's a beautifully written nonfiction book about a Hmong immigrant family in the central valley of California; their daughter has epilepsy and there's major cultural misunderstanding between them and their doctors. It's a great book and I highly recommend it.
And for those who don't keep up with the adventures of T.Hand and Roxy, the blog is here and I can tell you - eyewitness account from yesterday's party - that is one cute baby. Also, she doesn't have seizures anymore and no longer has a tube in her nose. Yay!
