Thank you

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone here at this site.
It is so easy to forget that I am not alone in this fight.

These last few days have been pretty wild. On Tuesday, the Paul D. Wellstone MD CARE Act passed the House of Representatives and sent to the Senate. For the last few days, PPMD, Cornerstone and Senate Committee staff have been in contact, negotiating and working to move the Bill forward. Today at 10:50 AM, we are on pins and needles waiting, hoping for good news that the Bill has passed the Senate. The bill then moves to back to the House and on to the President for signature. This has been an… Continue

I am often asked to describe the experience of raising a child with a disability - to try to help people who have not shared that unique experience to understand it, to imagine how it would feel. It's like this......

When you're going to have a baby, it's like planning a fabulous vacation trip - to Italy. You buy a bunch of guide books and make your wonderful plans.… Continue

A word from the College Kid's mom....

I have really enjoyed blogging the last month or so...and more so that I am going through college with my son, (only I don't get credit for it like he does). But I'm enjoying attending his classes anyhow. Although for the most part I feel so out of place- and wishing so much I can be 20-30 years younger again. Even most of the (graduate-students) instructors are so good looking!

However, the challenges that Tim has to go through while attending a great University like UF. Well, for… Continue

Looking through a glass onion

There are times I watch my boys from a distance and try to imagine what they are thinking. I realize they face challenges we can only imagine, yet I seek access to their world without being intrusive. I have to believe they have similar dreams and desires and try to catch glimpses by observing them when they are just being themselves.

Today was a blur!

I didn't have a moment to spare today. Started the day at 6:00. Got Brad on the bus by 7:30 and then Ben dressed and delivered to pre-school at 9:15. Since I didn't really have time to go home before my 10:00 appointment, I stopped at a coffee shop and had a delicious hot chocolate and read my devotional for today. I'm glad I took time for that.

My 10:00 appointment was at church with my pastor. Our church is huge so I had never really talked to him for any length of time but I… Continue

Our 25th Wedding Anniversary

Today is our 25th wedding Anniversary.

When we started out 25 years ago we never imagined that life would be is hard as it has been. If were not for God’s grace and mercy, which are given to us anew every day we would not have made it. There are so many times it would have been so easy for us to go our separate ways, but I cannot even begin to imagine walking this journey with any one else. While Muscular Dystrophy has placed a huge strain on our lives and our marriage, in many ways… Continue
