I feel deeply blessed, Luke is still with us. This is the first time I thought I could write, you see I didn't believe Luke would live past 14...NOW HE IS MY SENIOR!!

After his health scare last year things have been AWESOME...he started using a bi-pap at night for sleep...his heart rate is normal and his appetite, well lets just say...TEENAGER !!

Luke will be 18 in December!!! Is going the entire school day not because he has to, but because he wants to, he only needs 3 credits to graduate...he planning college and learning to advocate for himself..

What can I say...I am so PROUD!

Heres to ending Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy!!!

Congratulations. Becoming a senior is an accomplishment for any one, but for Luke, he should be so proud of himself. And what teenager wants EXTRA school, what an amazing kid.

Wow Misty! Thanks for posting and congratulations to Luke and your family! You have every right to be so proud. Sounds like he is doing great and has a positive attitude and that has to be a lot of your doing. Here's to many more happy years for all of you:) I too hope to be posting someday on Jacobs SENIOR acheivements!

We met briefly at a PPMD conference a couple of years ago when my son was first diagnosed. You were so encouraging to myself and my parents at that time and now in the present. Congratulations!
