My favorite scheduler from my favorite hospital called this week for our next date.  Lucky #12 will come April 16, 2012.  We were already prepared for this date.  It was one of the few times we have actually needed a specific date.  Big Brother will see the Shriner’s Hospital Neurologist on April 17th.  We are...

Support Group...Another one bites the dust

Today I write with great pride….I have been kicked off my second support group for Infantile Scoliosis.  The first time I was removed it was under my terms & I earned my exit.  I so desperately wanted to feel part of something bigger than my childs Scoliosis.  I wanted to be surrounded by love and...

The Firm...a.k.a Lucky Cast Club
I want to start this post by saying MASSIMO fought Infantile Scoliosis and set it STRAIGHT!  I love this kind of news!  0 in cast, 0 out of cast.  It was a long process with ups and downs but he is Super Massi and reached the path to a new journey.  He and his super... Read more »

As I sit at my computer to write of the weekend that ended today with a new cast, exhaustion is the first thing that comes to mind.  I am tired.  That is not to say the weekend wasn’t truly wonderful, it was just tiring.  With any good exhaustion comes limited thought process.  I’m all, I’m...

Is the cast still Lucky?

By name alone, The Lucky Cast Club, may be deceiving.  It may elude to the conclusion that all stories have happy endings with families moving on to a brace and then eventually families are free of everything.  The miracle cure.  I have been around the block a couple times and have friends who know for...

It’s funny how life throws you turns.  I have been caught up in the mid cast blahs.  We are at our midway point and I find little inspiration in this point in cast life.  I could try to force a post and maybe one or two close friends would read it.  I have been on... Read more »

Thanks and Giving: Too blessed to be stressed

Thanks and Giving: Too blessed to be stressed
The saying I am too blessed to be stressed always seemed one of those foreign thought processes to me.  YES I am blessed.  I am blessed with a husband who loves me, children to fill my home with noise, a solid foundation to fall back on, a family who loves me.  Ahhh but there was... Read more »

Mehta Casting Wins again!

I love good news days.  Anytime I can spread the joy of one family is a good day.  Two brave casters entered Chicago Shriner’s Hospital for Children for what would seem to be another day in the OR.  The Lucky Cast Club families rallyed around the troops and sent our messages of support and prayer. Like...
