Thanks for your comments!   I am very thankful to be getting the medicine for Ryan again!   If I think of any other tips, I'll try to let you know.   Take care!

     We just got the medicine yesterday!   Now I have to get back into the routine of mixing it.   I use a Tupperware Shaker (the smaller size).   I think it helps to mix it ahead of time (up to 24 hrs. ahead) so it dissolves better.   I also heard that some use warm milk or water to mix it, then cool it in the refrigerator.   I made a mess last night because I didn't open the lid of the shaker to release the pressure and it popped open while I was shaking it :( .   Do you have any tips for mixing the med.?

     I'm glad you're son is still walking, and I'm anxious to know how he does being on the medicine again.   I wish they would be doing some type of strength measurements this time.   They did a few "off-the-record" tests of Ryan's arm strength for us. 

     Best wishes, and God bless you and your son!

Hello, Melissa!   Was your son in the Ataluren trial?   Our son was.   He will be starting the low dose soon.   In the previous study, he received the high dose.   It seemed that he declined more after coming off the drug (during April & May of 2010).   In Oct., he quit walking (at age 14 1/2).   So he is in the intermediate group between DMD & BMD.   What was your son on, and did you think the drug was beneficial?

Just "friended" you, have not been on here for a while. Have you been asked to go back on PTC and have you decided ? Also, we are considering a move to one-hour outside of Cincy area, how was the drive and doing the study ?

Soo glad that Jordan is doing well. It sounds like he loved camp, I know James did. He went to camp in June and still talks about how much fun he had and of course, how much he misses his counselor...he really liked her so we are requesting her again next year.

Hi Melissa,

Yes, I do remember you. How is Jordan doing? Did he make it to camp this year? James is 9 and entering 4th grade...he is doing okay. Thanks for adding me to your list of friends. Hopefully now we can connect more frequently through here. Take care. Fran

Hi, I have left you a message. What is a good time to reach you? My work schedule is different every day. Mostly compiling data fromthe research right now. When can I come down and meet Jordan and you? Usually weekend work best for me. Jon usually drives me and drops me of. This way we get to spend a little time together on the wkend. Look forward to hearing from you! Donna
