Saved by the Crown

Originally posted 2020-10-19 08:04:58. The day of my daughter’s baby shower was a new one for me. New that it’s obviously our first grandbaby and new that I attended a function with their biological sperm donating father. He was there, yes.

Dealing with everyday life

Originally posted 2014-04-18 10:58:58. Since my son and I both have multiple health issues it can make some of the seemingly most easiest things turn into something more challenging.

Seizures and what you did or did not know

Originally posted 2014-04-15 22:05:01. My son had his first seizure at two weeks old. The foster parent called it ”tremors”. He was diagnosed within his first two years after extensive testing. They could not figure out what all was wrong. Between him getting so sick so often and the seizures we frequented Duke Hospital in Durham NC. He had epileptic seizures but because part of his brain didn’t develop they could not say it was epilepsy. Today…
