Helping Others...

Sooooo I have been thinking lately about using this blog to help other parents and children with kids not only with Spina Bifida, but those with other health problem/ conditions that are similar to Carter's. We have been through so much and have learned so much over the last year that I would love to be able to help anyone else that may be going through something similar! To start out, I will give everyone a brief description of the health conditions that affect my son.
Carter has Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele, Hydrocephalus, Neurogenic Bladder and Bowel, a Syrinx, Low Muscle tone, Stage V Kidney Reflux, and now Allergies and possibly Eczema. (I think thats all?) We have had to do a LOT of research for each of these conditions and have had to become very creative. I will start working on a post for one of these conditions. What do you ladies think? Is this a good idea? I feel like while I was researching all of these things I would come across some blogs and get great ideas/ info that has really helped me out and would love to do this for someone else!!
But in the mean time I have gotten my NEW CAMERA!!! and a new computer monitor and calibration system!! Woohoo!! Here are just a couple of pics that I took last week with it!!


  1. I think its a great idea. I know it would really help others that are going through the same thing...and I would enjoy reading the point of view of someone going through it. I think it would help me relate to my patients better...and would just be interesting! Good luck! ...oh, and cute pics! You do a great job!

  2. I think it is a great idea as well.. not only to help others going through the same things.. but to also educate those who don't know about it. I know parents that are going through similiar situations would be comforted to know they aren't the only ones.. Love you!! Going to miss you like crazy!! Great new pics, too!!

  3. I love the idea! Please do it! you will definitely help others
