The Real Superhero Project
I posted on my facebook page that I was running low on patience and physically and emotionally exhausted.  So many comments and yet I am sure many were linking it to my constant pace of work.  My exhaustion has little to do with my daily routine.  It is emotional pain at the journey two of...

The Plague...bring it on!

They say God never gives you more than you can handle.  I can say we are definitely a sturdy stock.  First came Infantile Scoliosis,  3.5 years later the flood that started the rebuilding, 31 days in a hotel to return home to a half finished house.  The skin problems started about 2 weeks after we...

A little bit tortoise, a little bit hare.

Since we started casting I have been indoctrinated with the correct analogies, explanations, etc… for Progressive Infantile Scoliosis & Mehta Casting.  My clients all work in Network Marketing and are leaders in both their industry and company.  I have heard their simple explanations of what it is they do hundreds of times and always marvel...

Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em: When is it time to move out of cast world?

Yes, once again I am dealing with guilt for neglecting my beloved Lucky Cast Club.  I have written 10 posts in my head while traversing my busy world of working two jobs, trying to maintain my Mom status and find time for sleep in the process.  In the course of a month we have shared...

Usain Bolt: Power of Possibility
Since William’s diagnosis at 10 months of age different fears have fought their way to my world.  In the beginning I feared whether he would hit his milestones: crawling, walking, running, jumping, etc… With great pride he met the milestones, although often later then his peers.  As his personality has emerged I have seen a...

Normal?

Normal?
A huge Thank you to Cathy J. for her guest post!  We love you guys!  See you Thursday.    “Normal?” I hate the word normal. I mean who defines what normal is anyway? I heard that word this weekend at the water park said in reference to my lovely daughter Kiya. A little boy who was racing... Read more »

Freedom!

Freedom!
Tomorrow we will celebrate Cast off day in a entirely new way!  Yes, it will be a party but the scenery will be something new.  We are casting off at our beach house!  In my mind we stroll to the waters edge as a family, spread the blanket & cut the armor from our Iron... Read more »

Independence Day: Learning to trust

Since we started casting November of 2009, I have always had in my mind a timeline for how things would go.  The dreamer in me was sure I would request a brace break during our second summer in cast.  He would have been casting 2 years and had earned his break at this point.  Summer... Read more »

Scoliosis Awareness Month: That's a Wrap, Cast Style!
It is hard for me to believe Scoliosis Awareness Month is coming to an end.  During the month of June we have shared 27 posts related to Scoliosis.  When you haved lived scoliosis every month for the past 3 years it is hard to condense all you hope others will learn to just one month. ...
