I got new casts today at the Shriner's Hospital.

I went and got my new casts put on today. When they took them off I had several bruises and blisters on my legs and feet. Hopefully in three weeks I'll be completely done with having to wear these casts. My new ones are bright green.

National MPS Awareness Day May 15th.

Tomorrow is National MPS Awareness Day. I hope that everyone will wear some purple to honor those that are still fighting and for those that have went on and earned their angel wings. I have seen so many of my little friends that have lost their battle to MPS this year that I've lost count.

My latest doctor appointments.

I've had a great week. I went to Nashville'TN to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital on Tuesday and Wednesday for my doctor appoints. I seen my geneticist and neurologist. My geneticist is still concerned about how rapidly my disorder is progressing. So he is going to look at some of my earlier test that were done when I first received my diagnosis, just to see if there is anything that might have been missed. I will be going back to Shriners Hospital in Lexington, KY to get the casts removed from my legs and then another set put back on. I'll be wearing them for another 3 weeks. We are hoping that this will help stretch my tendons so I can walk a little easier.

   Hello everyone. Sorry I've not been on here in the last couple of days. As always, I've had a lot going on. I went to my first ever go-cart dirt track races last night. Addiction Motorsports ran my logo on their carts for the race. I will post pictures soon. I had a great time. I even got to help put some of the tire up on the racks inside the race trailer. 

   Not sure if I'm going though another neurological change but I've not been wanting to eat or drink again. I did do a little better today. I decided to drink my formula instead of having to take it by my feeding tube.

   We will be going back to Nashville this week to see my doctors. We'll down there for a couple of days. If any of my friends in that area want to meet up with me while down there let me know. I'm sure we'll be hanging out at Centennial Park.

Totally cool things that are in the works.

There is so much going on here lately for me. I just found out that I might be throwing out the first pitch this Thursday at the Tennessee Smoky's  game and get to be an honorary player. I also have a photo shoot coming up this Monday with the NASCAR Nationwide Series race car of Trevor Bayne. He is going to feature me on his race car for the Bristol Race. He has already sent me a signed t-shirt and has an autographed plaque for me as well. I'm hopeful that he will be able to make it in for the photos so we can have them done together.
