As you may know, I'm walking and fundraising for the American Heart Association's Heart Walk on May 28th. The funds I raise are needed for heart disease research and education.
So far I've raised $0, but I need your help to reach some of my fundraising goal. Will you support me and my efforts to fight the nation's No. 1 disease killer?
By clicking on the link below, you can visit my personal fundraising page to make a secure, tax-deductible online donation. Please click "Give Now," when you visit my page. If you prefer, you can also mail me a donation directly.
Here's how you can help fight heart disease:
-$25 gives 50 people educational materials that teach them how to personally reduce their risk of heart diseases and stroke.
-$50 delivers the message of healthy nutrition to elementary school students through lesson plans and activity guides.
-$100 allows one hospital to teach its patients, caregivers, and health professionals about the risks of stroke - the nation's No. 4 killer.
Heart disease impact all of us, but because of events like Heart Walk we can make a difference. Through education and research the American Heart Association and the Children's Heart Foundation is working to build healthier lives. Will you support us?

Let me to you how excited I am right now... Timothy is now 26lbs and 34 inches tall.. This is such a big jump... He has gained 2 pounds in 6 weeks.. Yes that is right I said 2 pounds.. :) You have no idea how excited I am about this.. This is amazing, wonderful, awesome, compleatly the best thing every.. I am so happy right now..
Today Amy (home nurse) is coming to check up on Timothy... It is so crazy to think that we finally are at every 2 week appointments and no more every week or every other week.. it is nice to have them spread out. :) Because that means he is doing better.. Although he is still struggling with gaining weight. I will take that struggle over his heart problems any day. :)

Hello everyone.. Timothy is doing so good.. I was thinking of something last night and I thought I would share that with you all... So those who have been fallowing Timothy over a year know know that he has always had trouble with throwing up and would do so anywhere around 5-10 times a day.. The Dr's have gave him medication for it and still nothing would help. We had talked about doing a procedure that would then close up his stomach to where he would be unable to throw up.. Doing so would mean he could possible gain more weight before surgery, and would be able to gain more after (Maybe). He wouldn't be throwing up all the time, and he would be able to stay in an outfit all day, We wouldn't have to stop all of a sudden as driving down the road, the carseat, blankets, clothes, wouldn't need to be washed everyday. BUT if he needed to get sick for whatever reason such as he had the flu, him being a teenager and trying to drink because his friends are doing so, or whatever reason may come he would not be able to do so.. Mike and I reviewed all of the pros and cons and we decided to not have this done... Timothy throw up this was until he had surgery 7 1/2 months old.. After surgery he was only doing so around 3-5 times a day until around his 1st birthday, then it changed to around 0-3 times a day. Now after around close to 1 1/2 years old he has stopped and only throws up when he is sick.. We are so glad that he doesn't get sick anymore... It is so amazing...

Still on his feeding tube, 24 lbs, and very happy all the time.. :) He has an upcoming appointment with his home nurse on Wednesday. So I hope to see a weight gain :)
