Heart Walk

We are thrilled to be walking in this year's Heart Walk to benefit the American Heart Association. The walk takes place on May 14th at Busch Stadium. You can go here to register if you would like to walk with us. We would love you to join us! If you can not walk, but would like to donate to the AHA in hopes that their research and education would continue to improve the lives of those with heart disease (like Connie) or stroke survivors (like my dad), I want to let you know about a neat opportunity we have this year. Conway's Uncle Geoff works for RGA, a company that regularly contributes a large donation to the AHA. One of his co-workers, David Atkinson, also raises $ for AHA and also 50% MATCHES each donation from his own pocket! He asked permission to use Conway as his "poster child" this year and shared his story with family, friends and coworkers. By contributing via David's page, you are turning your contribution into an even larger one! That means $10 becomes $15!! You can click HERE to make a donation.

Thank you! Hope to see you on May 14th.

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for my mother and grandmother. Mom is home and recovering and still has both feet! My grandma is still rehabbing her shoulder, but should come home in a couple of weeks.

Conway spent almost all of his spring break with a fever caused by a mystery "virus." He was swabbed for everything under the sun and all results were negative. Today he had his follow-up on the lazy eye screening and he was negative for that too, thankfully! No lazy eye and no change in eyesight. Still farsighted, but not enough for glasses so we don't go back until December, 2011.

Now just cross your fingers that he doesn't pick up strep from Celeste! Poor girl is on antiobiotics now and hopefully will feel better soon.
