Life with therapy continues on. More therapies and doctors appointments on the calendar. Always looking and hoping that we will find the right one or the combination of many to help with Mike's progress.

HOLIDAYS: With the holidays of Thanksgiving and Cristmas coming upon us, they should be joyful occasions. However to me this year I am filled with bitter sweet emotions. What is the true meaning of the holidays to a family? Having traditions and shared memories? Eating grandma's favorite dish? Dreading being with certain family members? Or [...]

Life continues at a slow pace. (However, my days seem to fly by.) Mike really enjoyed his week off at Next Steps. Happy to do nothing for awhile. Back to reality and back to Next Steps. We did continue with our appointments with Dr Turner and Dr Yurasek. I had more free time than I [...]

Mike's life continues to be on a road that has many curves. ( I can't wait for it to be straight ). We received the results from the saliva test. They found that his DHEA is elevated, Insulin depressed, and Gliadin positive. OK now what? Well, Mike has to start eating gluten-free foods, at least [...]

The past few weeks have had their ups and downs. As much as we want things done quicker, it doesn't work that way with TBI people. They work at the pace their bodies tell them. We continue to be successful at Next Steps. After an evaluation, they are changing their course of therapy. Mike definitely [...]

Thank you James E. Towns Allstate (in Addison) and ALL of the organizers who made the "Running From Mayhem" a great event. Knowing how hard it is to organize a fundraiser, they did such an excellent job. We had over 80 runners/walkers that came out and supported the foundation. It was such a pleasure seeing [...]

( I have to laugh how some celebrities or politicians can claim exhaustion.) REALLY! Mike has been progressing well with Jim and Tom at Next Step. Still doing alot of [...]

Happy Anniversary Mike! 3 years since the accident. 7-8-09 a very simple date, but a haunting one for us, as 9-11 is for so many.
