We had an inspiring weekend. I have spent much of the day following up on Tyler's Hope things to make the moeny work for us and find this cure.

We spent most of the weekend planning for the Season of Hope Run and competing in it. It was one of the most fun events I have participated in. The atmosphere was electric with people in great moods. We started the race with a moment of silence for a good friend (Harold Monk) that suddenly passed away at a young age. There were over 340 runners including participants that had dystonia, parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. It was a great showing of support and inspiration. Three of the runners had DBS surgery and completed the 5k. One of those people was our 10 year old Samantha. Sammy had a goal to complete the 5k but as she pushed through her physical therapy she made he new goal to beat 1 hour and 20 minutes. Sammy finished the race in 1:09.

Yesterday was a great day in our household. Luke turned 7 years old and had a wonderful birthday. The secret Pal struck again and continues to have an impact on my children's lives that will never be fully appreciated by everyone. Thank You secret pal.

Seven years old is a milestone in our house because of Samantha and Tyler both showing symptoms when they turned 7. I did not sleep much at all this week and I am sure it was because I am worried about Luke. Saint Michelle has been stressed also and we both pretend like that can’t be it. Luke was able to build a Lego boat all by himself yesterday which made me think his dexterity is good. Luke got basketball clothes for his birthday and starts basketball in a week or so.

Tyler started the day at clinic and was very excited to find out he gained another four lbs since he was last weighed. He also scored the highest score in school on his Spanish test (122) that he was worried about.

Samantha spent some time preparing in PT for the Season of Hope race on December 10th and had a really good work out.
