No Broadcast tonight :/

I've taken a little break from blogging to get back into the swing of things at work... blah, blah.

First - there are a lot of sick SMA kids (and otherwise) in the hospital with RSV and various other stupid sicknesses. We're praying for them. Get better soon!

We started a weekly live broadcast of Emily's nighttime routine last week and it went over very well. :) We had 9 viewers for 1.5 hrs and went through tummy time, The Vest, Cough Assists, suctioning, administering medicine, and some other things. It was a lot of fun. Our plan is to do this once a week on a day TBD. I thought it was going to be Thur nights, but apparently not... honestly, b/c we watch Hell's Kitchen. :) Anyway, future shows will be viewable at:

We're are all doing well - getting back into the swing of things. A couple of things we're trying to get done for Emily:
  • Powerchair
  • Breast Milk for feeding (to replace Rice Milk) - denied by insurance b/c there is "no scientific proof that breast milk is beneficial to children" -- HA!
  • Video attendance at school
  • "Eye Gaze" system for communication
Thanks for stopping by!!

Peace <><

Hey Nate- It's Holly- I wrote and told you helloa few months ago (we went to LCS together) I have enjoyed seeing and praying for your sweet girls!! I just wanted to let you know I heard about a couple who is friends of one of my friends- They have a healthy 2 1/2 yr old girl, a son who passed away last year at 4 months from SMA, and their new 4 month old was just diagnosed with SMA. They are out visiting Dr. Swoboda right now and I thought you may be able to minster to them in a way one else could. Just had to share this info with you- This is their blog http://dailylivingtodie.blogspot.com

Thank you, Thank you Holly. I know about this family but I have been unable to find much out about them. I've left a comment. :)

Where do you buy breast milk? Is it human breast milk? I'm confused.
