Gabapentin, 3

my daughter put on her roller skates today for the first time in more than four months.

i don’t know what is more amazing – the fact that she put her own skates on, or that she then stood up on her own, or that she skated the length of the lounge and back, and ended with a pirouette.

i’ve been looking forward to this day for a long time. Gabapentin seems to have delivered it to me, post-haste!

i look at her and it’s as if rewind and fast-forward are happening at the same time.
