What human person could meet all the criteria on your list???




Sometimes there was absolutely no politeness left in me after spending the day with my very sick baby.  You may think by asking me when he's coming home you are being supportive and showing interest, but you sure as hell weren't the only person asking that.  It's pretty frustrating to be asked the same question repeatedly.  If I tell you that it's going to be several more months, don't ask me the same question in a week.  If something miraculous happened you can bet I would be telling EVERYONE I know about it.  Often we just wanted to be left alone.  We didn't feel like answering the phone.  We didn't feel like answering emails.  We just wanted to be with our baby and somehow have a normal home life for our daughter.
