I have lived so long with ALS my own family does not even see it anymore. Now that we live an hour and a half from an ALS walk, I'm walking. I have asked my family and friends to walk by my side as "Tammy's Warriors." This walk is not just about a cure, but also the money raised goes to survivors like me to live a better quality of life. Equipment, resources and support are so important as we progress. To walk with the people I love is invigorating. Just think how much hope a 17yr survivor can give.
A few bloggers will be joining the walk but you can be a virtual walker with "Tammy's Warriors" by being a sponser. If not, join us in spirit on our walk. You know I'll share my big day with you all right here. It's Oct. 25th and if you would like to be a part of it in any way go here http://web.alsa.org/goto/TammyWarrriors
My first birthday celebration weekend started with my oldest, Michelle. She brought hubby Jake and my grandpuppies, Sampson and Max. Toddlers without diapers! Poor Nikki needed a doggie spa day after these two pups invaded her world. lol
I was spoiled with a basket of "Whole Foods" goodies, dinner and a homemade big breakfast. We played Wii as Dave and Michelle physically played tug of war with my hips to see who could hold me better as I golfed. Michelle won the tug, but it gave me a peek into Dave and Michelle's future with me. They get along great, but Michelle naturally does the caregiving she was raised doing. We also played Cranium Wow, a must have game. They enjoyed the weekend and I'm hoping her anger at my move is gone. I don't mix my family for many reasons so there is more celebrations to come. It also stretches out my birthday. :)
I have a HUGE birthday secret to be reveled on my birthday. I'm doing something really wild for myself. ;) If you already know it, don't tell!
Max and, 3 month, older brother Sampson
Don't ya just love puppies!
