We're finally scheduled for screening October 8th and 9th for 2a at CHOP. Anyone else here going to CHOP? First, we go Wednesday to Florida for MRI. If all goes well, we go back for the biopsy Oct. 30th. Gretchen, what site are you at?

Nick will start in the 2a on October 15th. Part of me is scared to post it (say it out loud, share it) before he starts, in case it's too good to be true.

Joanne, I've always thought myself computer literate, but lately, I've realized that technology is moving much much faster than I am! :)

Ellen, please give us an update on how Tim's doing as he continues (hope all was well through the biopsy and hospital stay!)...we're just an hourish north in Mukwonago---would love to get together at some point, though our boys are 11 & 9, boys are boys and should be able to mingle....:)

Tim is also in the 2a extension. He had his muscle biopsy last week in Cinn. His caringbridge site is We go back to Cinn on Sept 26 to start thr PTC.

Just figured out that we've been chatting under the discussion forum, rather than within the Groups section. Maybe I should have my 12 year old teach me how to use the computer. . . . . . Either way, would love to share experiences. We also have a caring bridge, but haven't started on drug yet and are still waiting to be screened.

If anyone is interested in following Anthony's progress on the drug check out our caringbridge site ok?

I can only blog one place for now but I'll check in here when someone posts for me.

my son is going to get screened very soon for the 2b trial and hoping for it to be all ok he will participate in the trial.My only worry is the placebo group but hearing if the results are good the trial may only last 6 months.I totally agree with you that we should share our experiences and the progress in the trial.It will benefit everyone and if we can group few parents we can advocate our concerns aswell.

my son is 8.2 years and doing well and i truly hope ptc to be a full treatment and very positively believe that these boys with nonsence mutation can be sorted.
