MS Walk - May 3

1 post in this topic

I will be participating in the MS Walk on Sunday, May 3rd. My oldest daughter was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in the fall of 2004, when she was 13 years old. It has been quite a journey with her. She is now a senior in high school, and will graduate in a few weeks with honors. She will be attending college in the fall, majoring in music education.

She is on a medicine called Tysabri, which she receives via an IV once a month. She tried many other medicines before this one, but either reacted to the med, or had too many relapses. In January of 2006, she could not walk unassisted. Now, she walks with only a slight limp.

My husband was diagnosed with MS last June, just days after his 40th birthday. He has been able to manage on a medicine called Rebif, which he gives to himself three nights a week in an injection.

We have been thankful for the research that has been done, and hope that new research will find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.

If any of you would like to donate to this cause, visit the Minnesota MS Society webpage. Our team is called the Wave Walkers, but if you have friends walking on another team, support them.

Thanks for letting me get the word out.

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
