    I've been told I resemble Glinda the Good Witch on The Wizard of Oz, so that's my avatar on other forums.

    Well.. then that one drunk guy said I looked like Madonna years ago. But he was drunk.

Sometimes family members can suck.
    Thanks Crabcakes! I hope ankle braces help. I know the medical costs can be overwhelming. The inlaws don't see DS that often and when they do he's in good health (otherwise we wouldn't be there) so they don't realize how our daily life revolves around keeping him healthy. But then again they've always treated us like we pamper him. It's true that we make a concerted effort to keep him healthy and it's paid off; most kids with his condition are in the hospital at minimum every 2 yrs.; at 14 he's only had 2 hospitalizations. So what ever we are doing it's working.

    Soooo glad to hear that the uninformed opinions of others aren't derailing the care of your son! Obviously I can't know what he has, but if he is averaging a hospital stay every 7 years instead of every 2 - DAMNED FINE JOB. I don't let anyone get in my way, either. And people who don't have dependents (or personal experience) with big issues just don't get how hard the daily slog can be. I do PT, OT, ST, VT, bifocals, ankle braces, lots of dental surgery (cause the kiddo doesn't teethe so all must be pulled in sequence) , AAC device (talking computer for the non-verbal), special diet, home equipment for sensory disorder, handicapped eating utensils, all her personal care because she cannot yet do it for herself, and for fun - handicapped swim and horse riding. And the kid is now 11. It's not a brag - I bet you do tons of medical. One day with mine wears my oh-so-opinionated father out - his constant mantra is "did a DOCTOR order this??". He can go to hell. At this point in my life, I have very little patience with people who should know better.

    You know what? I'm going to make that the gripe of my day - DENSE FAMIlY MEMBERS.

    i don't think they exist
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!
