My first post… here we go.


Cool.  My first post and first blog.  Wonder how many millions have already thought and said the same?  Anyway, here we go!  Should be an interesting ride.  Gracie started off our Labor Day weekend with a bang!  Ate a mushroom on school grounds Thursday.  Had to take her to the ER, make her drink fluid with activated charcoal, have her give blood samples, go to a clinic for follow-up blood tests.  The good news is Gracie threw up after drinking almost all of the activated charcoal, and we saw the mushroom pieces in her vomit.  Attached is a photo of Gracie prior to be sick.  Not a happy camper in the ER!

I decided to start this blog as a way for family, friends, and strangers to follow our journey, and maybe learn a few things along the way.  You see, Kristine (my wife) and I have decided to pursue stem cell therapy as a means of intervention for Gracie.  Anyway, that’s all I have time for now.  Will be writing more soon…

    • Hi Cheryl! And I’m glad you like this blog. Thought it would be a great way to get information out there, and for everyone to follow Gracie’s story. We miss seeing you and your family at church on Sundays. Kristine will be glad to know you’re already aware of Gracie’s blog. This is going to be an exciting time. Everyone will be learning more as we progress. Stay tuned! 🙂
