Back at Home

This has been a crazy year for our family.  The birth of our grandson Ian Alexander Hawley has brought so much joy into our lives.  I spent a winter in Washington DC.  It was my first winter up north in seven years.  I did okay during the winter.  It was June/July with it's rain that caused me the most issues.  Both of my feet have been swollen and cracked

Facebook has been making all sorts of changes making it very difficult to run our support group: Ketamine Klub For CRPS/RSD Patients.  I am starting a new support group which will give information on all treatments for CRPS, research articles and support for it's members.  The group can be found on the web site for my non-profit:  www.crpspartnersinpain,com

Click on CRPS Support Group and sign up.  Right now I have to approve all posts.  Once we all get familiar with this new protocol, I will remove the caveat that I must approve all posts.  Please join me in our new support group.

For those in Ketamine Klub For CRPS/RSD Patients, the site will remain there but I will not be receiving email updates after mid-August as I am going to deactivate my account.

It has been quite a while since I have had time to post.  It is amazing what you can do when you have to.  Since Ian was born, just over 4 months ago, I've been doing things that I haven't done in years.  There have been some ups and downs since Ian arrived and I was able to step up and help out.  I surprised even myself.

Having Ian in my life has been a great joy.  He is always smiling and happy.  I have been here in DC with him all but 2 weeks and 4 days of his life.  I have watched my daughter bloom into a wonderful mother and my son in law a wonderful involved father.

Next week Kim's best friend will begin to take care of Ian and another 4 month old as part of a nanny share.  My role will begin to wain.  It is great that things have stabilized but I will miss being here every day seeing everything that Ian does.
