Where Did The Time Go?

Wow.  6 years old. Where did the time go?  
I can't believe how much she has grown from that tiny little 5 lb 13 oz baby.  She wanted to take cupcakes to school today but she insisted they had to be purple and we couldn't find any purple ones. She wants everything to be purple. Luckily we were able to find a purple cake and so she decided that would do.  She got to celebrate at school this morning. 
She was having a great day and then she had a seizure. A pretty nasty one that lasted much longer than usual. I was at work and got a call that she was in the nurse's office and pretty much unresponsive.  That phone call broke my heart. Can't she have a one day, her birthday, wheee she can just be a kid?  I hurried to her school and she was still post ictal. I picked her up and carried her to the car and got her home. She finally woke up for a few minutes then went back to sleep and slept for a few more hours.  Then she woke up and it was like nothing had ever happened. She was bouncing off the walls. We had told her we would go out to eat anywhere she wanted to go. She chose McDonners (McDonalds to the rest of us).  So we went and she played and she was fine. She has no recollection of what happened or how she even got home. Seizures are so weird. Her party was supposed to be Saturday but the weather is forecasted to be super nasty so we have rescheduled the party for another date. My sweet Anna. She has gone through more in 6 years than most people do in a lifetime and she just keeps on smiling. The world is so much brighter because she is in it.
