Looks like we are just going to get into the Pfizer Myostatin Inhibitor trials with Hayden. He turns 10 in just over a month and we're going for screening next week to Vancouver. We were really starting to wonder if he was going to get in, but the folks at Vancouver pushed and unfortunately had to bump another boy that was scheduled to be the first at that location. The other boy will still get in on the trial, but Hayden would have been excluded the day he turned 10 so they had to move…Continue
So this week, one of our biggest hopes came true. About a year ago, I left my job to take a consulting position and we moved to British Columbia. We weren't particularly happy with the services we were receiving in Saskatchewan and decided if we could, we'd move to be closer to one of the Children's hospitals in Canada.

Well, it looks like the budget that was proposed today won't go through, and instead we'll go to the polls. The highlights most of the news stations carried did not have a lot of detail, but there were a few things of interest to our community, and one pretty big one.
I just found yesterday, that most of the big car companies have reimbursement programs for some mobility aids on our vehicles. Our boys are still pretty young so we're not looking at wheel chair lifts just yet, but we did pick up a 2010 Grand Caravan a few months ago and had planned on putting running boards on anyways, and now it looks like they'll be covered.
The plan with Chrysler varies a bit from the US to Canada, but here's what I found out this morning. Chrysler will…Continue
