Jasmin Cervantes | Before her febrile seizure, I could only sympathize with parents as they described how they saw their children “slip away from them.” I can now empathize with these parents. I would never wish the fear I felt upon any parent.

Ending in a place so far removed from where I began
Yet, once again I find myself at a starting line
I’ve dug in my heels,
and my teeth into my lip.
I’ve shed my skin, tears, rage,
and doubts and curled my fists tightly against fear-
My how I’ve grown.
Look at me now, I’m 10 feet tall!
