Angelman Syndrome is described as a rare nervous system disorder usually misdiagnosed as either Cerebral Palsy or Autism. My son Cedric falls into the category of misdiagnosed Cerebral Palsy, most likely because thankfully he had no seizures. There are several types of Angelman Syndrome all require a degree in genetics to understand! I will do my best to explain my son's type. He is known as Deletion negative, methylation positive.

Since I became a mom 25-months ago I can't remember a damn thing. Birthdays? Nope. Names of parents at preschool? My mind is blank. I almost had a panic attack the first time I went on a television shoot after I had Natalia. I was producing a crime show that involved about ten different interviews, as many shooting locations and piles of legal documents. Back then I barely could remember how to feed Natalia at a certain time let alone remember the… Continue

Do we ever leave High School? I think not. Will they or won't they be my "friend"? Something everyone in High School has thought at least once. Now its out there on the World Wide Web, talk about grand scale rejection. A friend of mine kept telling me to go on Facebook, you can get in touch with all of your old high school friends. Well, curiosity got the best of me. No one bothered to mention how addicting it would become. I mean really, who doesn't… Continue

I want to make this time exciting and happy for my family. I cannot get the energy up to do it some days.
My dad was diagnosed with cancer in June 14 years ago. We had Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house. My husband was off at his first year of school several states away and I was finishing my last semester near my parents. He came home for the week, until Saturday. My brother got off his conceited high horse long enough to come home for the weekend. The Sunday after Thanksgiving my… Continue

Dear Mr. Gall Bladder
As of December 2, 2008 you are hereby evicted from your place of residence. I have asked you nicely to leave, but you do not and continue to give me pain and agony. You also have violated your lease with the amount of "tennants" (stones) living in one place. Eight is just too many for one area. So, you leave me with no other choice but to evict you. My surgeon will be on hand to escort you… Continue

We gather again this year with as many family and friends as we can crowd around our huge dining room table. Despite that, there are many missing. Two of our grown children, and three of our grandchildren, live in Alaska. One grandchild, her husband and their new baby (our great-grandchild!) live in Utah.
But they will all be here in our hearts and prayers. There is no blessing better than family and friends. As we offer Thanksgiving Day prayers with, and for, all of them, here are… Continue

Well it is here, the start of the first holiday season without my husband. I have been dreading this day but at the same time looking forward to making it a special day for the kids. As I work on getting everything together I can't help but think about last Thanksgiving. John was sick, we were told he had bronchitis and never imagined that shortly after the New Year he would be diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.
Even thought John was sick, he still put together an amazing… Continue
