What Is Your Message?

Happy New Year!!

2012 is now in the past. Looking back over the year, can you say that you were truly the person you wanted to be? Instead of making resolutions each year to stop doing something, I now make goals so I am motivated to achieve more.

Adjusting Once Again

We returned home from the hospital last Friday. Livy was pretty stable regarding seizures and the doctor thought it best she get away from all the lovely hospital germs. She has being doing relatively well. We are back to the fun adjusting medication game now that she came home on two additional seizure meds. We keep telling ourselves this is only temporary. For those of you that have gone through this, it is one of the most frustrating things, going up on meds, weaning down meds, and then going up again. Trying to find the perfect balance of not too much and not too little. These meds all have so many side effects and require other meds to control them. We've become quite the pharmaceutical experts over here.

Livy has been home from school and we have decided to keep her home until her cast comes off the week after Thanksgiving. She is also scheduled to have her Supprelin implant replaced the week of Thanksgiving. For those of you not familiar with the implant, here is a link to some information: Supprelin Implant

A Sister's True Talent

I often wonder what Hailey would have been like had Livy not been born with disabilities. Would she be as considerate, empathetic and loving as she is today? Would she be as compassionate, tolerant, and mature when interacting with people? I really don't know the answer. The fact is, Allison and I would still have raised her with the same values...love your family, be polite, kind and respectful and value life for all that it is. But Livy has taught her lessons about life that we never could have.

To see Hailey wander into Livy's room to say good morning is a beautiful sight. She climbs into Livy's bed, cuddles right up next to her and puts Livy's arms around her. Then they smile together and Hailey laughs as Livy unknowingly tickles her. When Livy is on her mat on the floor, Hailey gets down right next to her and rolls around with her. She is constantly encouraging Livy to do her best.

"Livy's Hope" Black and Silver Charm Bracelet

"Livy's Hope" Black and Silver Charm Bracelet
This is Hailey's first creation after learning new jewelry techniques at Cousin Corp.

She learned how to use beading wire, crimping beads and how to add toggle closures. The wonderful designers at Cousin gave Hailey her very own special tool kit to use. It was amazing how quickly she learned and picked up the new methods. This is just one of a few she has already put together. Thank you again to Cousin for the beads and lessons.

Please click the link below to bid on this beautiful new creation by Hailey. All money raised by "Art by Hailey" creations goes towards Livy's therapy sessions:


Thank you!
