Dealing with a new stage

My son Seth just stopped walking right before Thanksgiving. He is only 8 yrs. old.
His upper body muscles are also weakening. We were told that this stage usually happens between ages 10-12. I feel anxious all the time, wondering if this disease is ever going to plateau, so we can learn how to take care of him. My husband and I have alot of questions as to how to do the basic things for Seth. I'm still cry talking about it. (cryinjg now).

Hi, It's really hard to get on the computer lately. My husband and I share one.  I would love to get together. My phone number is 978-970-2724.  It's still really difficult sometimes to talk about Seth. I need to though, for his sake, and my own sanity.

Hi Monique, I have the next several weeks off from work.  I e-mailed Dawn Dillion from Westford also.  Would you like to get together?
