I'm not even sure really where to begin........
Our family has been so fortunate to be involved with such a "beautiful" group of people.
Wyatt was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in Jan 2009. Since then, things…Continue

This morning at 1:40am my sweet baby Wyatt turned 4. I can't believe I'm even looking at that number 4. 4 is a big kid, what happened to my "baby!" I'm honored and blessed to call myself Wyatt's mom. He is brave, strong, and giving. This kid has made me a better person, there is no doubt in my mind. I am so lucky to know this child, to have this child a part of my life. Every second, every minute, I treasure and adore him (even when he's a monster, hahaha). Thank you Wyatt for…Continue

Our family trip to the pumpkin patch. We had a great time laughing and just spending time together. Over the last 3 years life has thrown up a few curve balls, but I am so happy to have my amazing family to love.

Thank you, Melissa! (I love the name Wyatt--my grandma's maiden name, actually). Wish I could've met you at the meeting.
Thank you, I have just noticed your comment. I love my small boy, he is going to have a brother soon. Sending kisses for your beautiful son and wishing you and your family all the best.
I thinking about all my cyber PPMD friends tonight! Take care everyone!
Okay, call me crazy, but for the life of me I can't seem to find where all the groups are. When they changed the website, I completely lost the groups. Can you help me? I know you'll know how to get there.
Thank you for the email last night and your support, really what would I do without you :-)!!
Hey! Hope you guys have a fun and safe trip. Thanks for your words of encouragement regarding steroids -- I think we're doing the right thing by starting him now, but it is a scary step. Definately makes things feel "real". Just read a blog from October. So Wyatt actaully jumps and runs? That's awesome! Max can race walk like a champ, but just can't run or jump at all. I'm hoping steroids change that. I'd love to chat with you anytime too! Take care!
Hey, Melissa! I saw that y'all will be headed to Cinci soon. Do you think you will start steroids? We saw her a couple of weeks ago and decided to start Max in about a month. He is in the 75th percentile for height, so she felt that the growth issue won't affect him for awhile (he's the second tallest kid in his class -- he goes to a Montessori school three days a week). I'm super nervous about starting him so young, but I'd love it if he gained some strength and, consequently hopefull won't fall down so often. I'm most concerned about weight gain -- I've been hearing a lot about how hungry people on steroids get. Anway, just wanted to chat with another mom of a little guy! Hope you and your crew are doing well!
