Take a Bow

Take a Bow
I must preface this post.  In the past few months some of our dear friends have received devastating news.  I have been fighting survivors guilt of sorts; no matter how I feel or have felt, it in no way compares or diminishes their change of events.  We love you all and you know who you...

Scoliosis Awareness Month 2013; Waiting for our "Rudy" moment.

Scoliosis Awareness Month 2013; Waiting for our "Rudy" moment.
I absolutely adore the movie Rudy.  Maybe it is my love of Notre Dame football or more likely the story of the underdog overcoming all obstacles for a hard earned few minutes of passion in the play.  Whatever the reason, when the crowd begins chanting, “rudy, Rudy, RUDY!” the tears start forming.  Eventually my lip...

How many more sleeps? Even Infantile Scoliosis eventually grows up!

Casting a very aware 4 year old is vastly different from our experience casting an infant.  This morning the questioning once again started, “How many more sleeps until my cast off party?” I pull my phone from my pocket and answer, “ 14 more sleeps William.” He then goes through the process, “then you will cut...

I wish you enough

I wish you enough
Sitting down to write the 100th post for Suck it, Scoliosis, it seems so appropriate to meet this milestone just a week after our 3 year anniversary, 1 week after returning home from an unbelievable weekend for my Lucky Cast Club sisters.  Humble is the primary word that comes to mind when I look back on our journey. ...

Hold the iPad, I am giving the gift of Hope this holiday season

Hold the iPad, I am giving the gift of Hope this holiday season
Cast 14 has come and gone.  We were met with expected news; no change…see you in 12 weeks.  In the back of our minds, the glimmer of hope sat dormant.  Afraid to hope too much for a reprieve from our 4th year of casting, yet some shards still manage to hit barbed in your outer shell at...

Time: The gift that keeps on giving.

I know I am a scoliosis blog and I have to say today I should be writing a post about preparing for what will be our 14th cast, in 3+ years of casting.  We leave tomorrow for our home away from home, the beautiful Windy City awaiting our arrival.  As of this morning, my home... Read more »

Finding your own path

We have a influx of new families in the Lucky Cast Club the past few weeks.  New families mean new little ones starting their casting journey.  Such a mix of emotions.  I am grateful our hospitals respect our group enough to share the Lucky Cast Club.  It is also very nice to know they are...

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...

The best of the bad....New rules, new game

The best of the bad....New rules, new game
The downside of maintaining a blog focused entirely on Scoliosis…if you want to escape from the journey, your blog stays dormant.  I am grateful my friends were kind enough to guest post when I was unwilling to admit we still had a dog in this fight.  Yes, I took the ostrich approach to the almost...

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 »
