The dream reminded me of the movie Awakenings with Robin Williams and Robert DeNiro. In this movie patients who have been comatose for many years are suddenly "awakened" by a drug, only to fall back into a comatose state after a short period of time. They know that it is happening and that is the saddest part.
I was thinking about what this dream means. I think I have REALLY finally realized...had my own awakening...that there is no miracle cure for cerebral palsy. No matter how many therapies and procedures we do, Grace will always have cerebral palsy. I DO believe that she will continue to improve and maybe eventually walk, but she will always have special needs and will appear so to everyone. But I also REALLY know that she will always be special in many other ways...not just because of her disability.
