Hi Julie,
I cannot believe Mike has graduated! He also turns 18 today! I am getting old.
We had a huge party for him last weekend with over 150 at the house to celebrate his graduation. His classmates gave him a standing ovation when he received his diploma. It was very moving considering he has a class of 600. He really made an impact on the school, the kids and the teachers. They also dedicated the yearbook to him, with his own page. Pretty cool.

Lung function for both boys is getting pretty scary tho. Andy's Dr is adament about traching and venting him. He does not want to hear anything about it. Both boys are pretty determined to keep their quality of life without any mechanical intervention for as long as they can.
Take care,

Julie, Thanks so much for writing to me! I am sorry to respond so late! I have kinda fallen off the ppmd map for a while...I guess since DC I just needed a little break. We are doing great here. I am still debating on the conference...not a lot of money right now. Are you going?

I guess all there is left for us to do is to keep going. I hope things work well for your husband. No doubt things can only go up from here but the state has been in such a mess!

take care and stay well

Hi Julie

Nice to hear from you, how are things going? We are ok...not much good happening in the world really. Besides this DMD stuff the recession has taken it's toll on us in SoCal. We've lost some of our intensity to fight duchenne because we have to focus on other things for awhile. What's next? Sometimes I feel like the sky is falling! Hope you and Nick are doing well...

Just wanted to let you know, I put a response on my facebook account, and so far have received word back from one of my friends who has just called his reps (both house and senate) from Little Rock, AR. Got to love how technology makes it easier to band together for a purpose.

Levi has his appt. at 8:30 this Friday. I plan on getting there by 8 to get him checked in. I am not sure what time we will be done, as we will be discussing the steriod treatment for him at this time. We are torn on if this is the best approach for him or not. So, with that being said it is just going to be me and Levi, and we would love to meet you. Let me know what would be best for you.

I just got off the phone with Stacy, and she said she has already sent the letter on. She even said she should would call with an update tomorrow.

On a side note, Levi and I will be at Shriners on Friday. If you are free at any time let me know.

Hi Julie:

Happy Easter to you and your family too! We all missed you on Friday - we will have to do it again when you can come too. It was so nice to meet Polly and Le Ann in person and the kids had a great time together. I am just here looking around on the PPMD site - I get more info than from Facebook! I have gotten a few different opinions about the stander feature and the Permobil brand as well. It's a little confusing. Is the stander used only for therapuetic purposes, or is it also used if Nick wants to just raise up (I'm beginning to think I have the stander mixed a little bit with the elevator). Does Nick have that too? Did you try different chairs? Too many questions!!! I trust your judgement though - you probably looked into everything very well I'm sure!!!

Hope the Easter Bunny brings you lots of hugs,

Hi Julie,
Do you recall telling me in a discussion about duplications - that some Sacramento MD doctor said that duplications were not as severe as deletions? I wanted to ask if he was talking about duplications in the beginning of the exon or just in general all over the gene? Also - are you all using idebenone and if so, did you notice a difference and where do you get it? Thanks. Char
