To those of you who have ever advised a newly dx parent that things WILL get easier, and to those of you who are newly dx, it is TRUE! We are 7 months post-dx, and today, when my MIL offered to pick up Mara from daycare for an evening (filled with food, I am sure), Mara wanted to take her own food from home for lunch, and the school called about doing corrections before gym class. I was able to handle it ALL!! 6 months ago, I would have never guessed that I would be able to handle these questions. THANK YOU to all that have provided support. It does get easier.
