    I'm always so glad to read about Rachel's continued recovery. One step at a time.

    Great meeting you in person if way too briefly.

    Hugs!

    We have to see if she meets the criteria. We are being cautious, but if we can swing it financially, and it offers some promise, (even .5 %) I can do without life's luxuries. The office here is 15 minutes from our house, but we will be checking this out thoroughly. We also try not to throw money away on "snake oil" type treatments. It is a difficult line to walk at times.
    I just googled it and got 28,000 hits. At a cursory glance, it looks like something that would have helped some of the special ed kids I taught. Whether or not it will be appropriate for Rachael is something you will have to determine. It is so frustrating trying to find the right solution amongst all the promises.

    Good luck.

    It's good to hear things continue to looking up for Rachael. I met her for the first time this spring at the Pecitonica rally and immediately fell for that smile of hers ..

    Thank you.
    My wife and I were just saying the other day that everything we have done in our life that can be considered great, I mean really great has been things we did taking a chance and somehow overcoming the odds; each time it has happened, by all stats and feedback, we were supposed to lose. From career choices to the birth of our one and only Samuel, Nothing has been a sure bet, or handed to us on a platter.

    Roy it is, I am afraid the same with you and your family. Except for ten times more heavy, and you stand proudly under this burden that has been shoved upon you and yours. It's the life of Job for you, my friend. At least you got your daughter, your son and your wife and YOU (don't forget to kiss em all everyday Roy) and you got lots of us nincompoops (friends) to kick along in the dirt trail of life with you, Roy; with you

    Hi everybody

    I am all recharged from Gillette, for a while anyway.
    Thanks to everybody for the kind words.

    Does that mean you're ready for some unkind words?

    I'll see you in Tennessee. Maybe we could do the "2 out of 3 Gibson Guitar Tour"...Kalamazoo and Nashville, Bozeman will just have to wait.
    Wherever you go, there you are.

    Roy,

    I'm sorry we didn't get more than a quick HI at the rally, but I know that Cheryl and I are glad to hear all of the progress Rachel is making. As parents this is by far the biggest fear we all have and your strength through this and your commitment is remarkable. I know there are low points to everything, but the attitude your family has to fighting through this is probably the best treatment that can be had. We look forward to more updates and the day we can meet you again, and Rachel as well, at a rally!

    Cheers!
    Dave...

    Great news Roy! You and Nancy are really an inspiration. We're going through some bad times with Mitch right now and whenever I get down I think of you guys and the improvements that Rachael is making. It helps me remember that light at the end of the tunnel isn't always a train.....
