This is not for me, but I got an email about 10 minutes ago from my sister-in-law. My nephew, Owen (born this past July) has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy. (here's a little general info on the condition: http://kidshealth.org/parent/medical/brain/cerebral_palsy.html)

Today has been sort of strange for me, I was all thinking about my problems, my worries, grieving over the loss of my grandma (went to her memorial site today as I was unable to get back for the actual service in January) and just BSing on OM today trying to stay distracted. Now I get this email and while I am not extremely close to my little brother these days, this really upsets me. I love my nephews and I hope Owen receives the best care possible. It makes me realize as wrapped up as I get in my own stupid stuff, sometimes I forget that others have much more difficult circumstances and stresses then I do.

At any rate, if you all could throw a little prayer or whatnot their way I would appreciate it.

I will keep them in my prayers. Hope Owen can recover from it.

Thank you. It means a lot. I mean I realize this is not an overnight thing. He's going to be going to lots of Dr's and trying all sorts of things. I can only hope he has a mild form and he can live a fairly normal life. It does make me realize sometimes I focus on some awfully stupid stuff.

Hopefully things will work out. Medical advancements make so many treatments possible now.

Well, we were hoping his cord blood would help, but apparently that got messed up during the birth so now they are looking at whether the cord blood from his older brother Hayden would work (Hayden was born the year before and his cord blood was saved). Guess the stem cells could help. Here's to hoping.
