Susan then moved on to Clockwork Angel, a book she specifically requested for the read-a-thon. (One of the nurses from the clinical trial recommended it to her, based on something else she was reading -- gotta love that kind of a connection!)
While Susan has set an ambitious goal of reading for 13 hours today, she is also really tired -- I think her immune system is having to work hard to tolerate the peanut protein we keep sending its way. So...with only a little bit of encouragement from me, Susan took a nap in the middle of her read-a-thon.
I keep telling Susan that, while her goal is great, this year is different. She is already doing something incredible. She is raising awareness about the way food allergies affect children and their families while helping scientists and doctors work toward a cure. Even if Susan does not achieve her 13 hour goal today, she has already done something awesome.
