Thursday Three

1. Roaring

2. Ditch

3. Family

It's Memorial Day Weekend, and we have no kids until Sunday night. We will be meeting Best Friend and Mr. Best Friend at the cottage for the weekend. We will for sure have a rip-roaring good time. I'm so excited!!

Mr. Goose Poop is finally back home again, home again jiggity-jig. And tomorrow he's going to ditch work and spend the day with us. Ok, he's not ditching, he's gotten it off on the account of a downpour tomorrow, but I didn't know how else to use the word ditch!!

Mr. Goose Poop has a co-worker, who has a daughter, Payton, that was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease. The short version is Mitochondria are responsible for creating more than 90% of the energy needed to sustain life and support growth. When Mitochondria fail, less and less energy is created within the cell. Cell injury and even cell death can follow. If the process is repeated throughout the body, whole systems begin to fail, and the life of the person whom this is happening is severely compromised. It can cause devastating developmental and/or physical delays. Life expectancy of children with Mitochondrial Disease can be very bleak. It is a relatively new disease and its cause and treatment is limited due to awareness and funding. The family has set up a website, found here, to raise awareness and funding for little Payton. Please visit Payton, and her family, and if nothing else help them raise awareness to help find a cure for this devastating disease.
