We got a letter today. It wasn't a fun letter. Someone "reported" us because we put our trash out before 6 pm (gasp!). The handful of times we put our trash out "early" (and by early I mean an hour or two early); Melorah is either in the hospital or "iffy". What is "iffy"? "Iffy" is she may go into a status seizure. It means she is already having some seizures. If she goes into a status seizure, she may not come out of it and we may not bring her home (too many of our kids with die). Or if she comes out of it, she may be permanently damaged. So to whoever reported us: Sorry! Am so glad you have a perfect life and can have the luxury of making sure your trash is not put out before 6 pm. Right now am very sorry we moved. Arcadia was much more kind and understanding.
UPDATE: We had a very sweet call from our mayor after I called and ranted at the poor person who answered the phone at the city building. Right now things have been challenging with Melorah. It is frustrating when people keep telling you she is "off" and you feel helpless to do anything about it. As with everything, we will work through it. Am ditching my negative attitude and moving on. :)
