The boys are well……

Someone said that to me the other day in a somewhat question somewhat statement. “Well”… what a word. Actually no they are not “well”. They have a lifelong chronic kidney disease. I wouldn’t describe them as “well”. So I told her that Gabe was anemic, was deficient in his growth hormone, was on 3 blood pressure medications, had adult sized kidneys, and would most likely need a transplant in adolescence. So yeah he’s “well”.  Then she had enough nerve to say “at least those are all manageable things”. Manageable. I so wanted to say “you know what? I’m tired of managing them, would you like to??”. I’m sure she didn’t mean any harm, but come on (as Nate likes to say!). ARGH!!!!!!!!

    People can say such stupid, stupid things. Ugh! And sigh. It is our life, no?
