Two days before Thanksgiving and there is a lot to be thankful for. For me, family is the top thing followed closely by great friends. I miss my father and my mother but I feel very strong because of the love and strength they gave me while I was growing up. You already know about Saint Michelle and my fantastic kids. My friends I cannot be more grateful for with their compassion for Tyler's Hope and how they make our lives fun.

Now for the update on the kids so that people with dystonia can understand the fluctuation of emotions and daily battles that are fought.

Tyler continues to do very well with his studies and last week he earned 1st place again in the science fair in the botany division with over 350 kids competing and 90 in botany. Tyler will go to the regionals to compete. He will be fitted for a brace/splint for his left wrist and arm soon. He is trying everything he can to get some improvements on his left side. He has had a lot of pulling on his left eye and face lately and it is frustrating...

Tyler's birthday was two days ago. It is a reminder of the urgency needed in raising money to fund the research. One tear older is one year more that we could have cured him and others. Last night he had five boys sleep over for a party. I am typing this at 5:30 am and they are still not in bed. It sounds as if they have a demolition ball upstairs. Tyler's dystonia has shown up in the left side of his face some. I believe it is the newer programmings but his eye involuntarily closes and he grimaces from time to time. We will try and coorect this.

Samantha had a few days there where her foot was turning in more causing her to fall when she has been trying to walk a lot more. She had a good time and got lots of candy on Halloween.

Luke has started praticing his basketball again. He was a ninja, captain america, and a cowboy this week for Halloween. He broke it down on the dance floor for everyone to see at the Halloween party. Luke loves to dance. Luke turns seven years old on December 1st. This day...
