Bouncing Back (hard)

Last October Cassie's sinus infection turned to pneumonia. Then she got the flu. Then she had a persistent fever. For three months.

We've been in and out of the hospital and seen a battery of specialists. Six months after the first sniffle, she's still not up to her bright and bushy self. It's worried us and frustrated us to no end.

Still not sure what's going on, but the best explanation is that she's been through the wringer and is healing sloooowly. But like a flat basketball, it's been hard for her to bounce back. She's utterly exhausted and her body is run down.

We'd always heard that diabetes could make you more susceptible to things. It  makes it hard to recuperate too. Especially after a big ol' one-two punch. Keep her in your thoughts.
