    Cheesecake--I would love to travel and be involved, but we are still in the training process with new nurses (and family members) and can't leave. Also, I'm getting an MRI on my lumbar spine Tuesday and hope to find a way to resolve/live with the immense pain I've been having from the lifting injury several months ago. I'm sending light and love to the gathering, and am hoping that our situation begins to move more and more toward our freedom to be involved in the political voice.

    Washington State legislature is considering a house bill to start a program in which Medicaid recipients can negotiate for individually authorized hours of home health care--HB 2475. I'm composing a letter for one of the sponsors (he's our local rep, and his son is a good friend of Jake's, so I'm hoping this will help him present the case persuasively.) At present, my best contribution is in writing. And maybe picking up a few more of Christina and Walter's pins to give to people! (Our granddaughter got them for family members as Christmas gifts--and people do ask about them!)

    Thank you, Roshni! Now I'm into new CDs...heh! Cheap thrills!

    Chris--your doggie avatar is a hoot!

      lilsis-
      When Jim sees the rally video (we just got it) from last year maybe he'll change his mind. He is great in that video.

      If not, leave him home.

      The rally info is at working2walk.org.

      cheesecake is right. Caregivers need to be heard!

It may seem impossible (the trip) but give it some thought, you add so much to the united voice for CURE, CARE and Unity.

          Betheny, I sent you an e-mail, but forgot to ask---Jim's on video? How can we see it? Deb

            I am really excited that the Bruce/Kate Killer Croquet Team are making it! That was one of my disappointments last year, not meeting you 2.

            Deb-

            We sent it to Jeff at Rutgers. He has to change it to a different format to host on Carecure. I think I'll burn a bunch too, a lot of people have asked. It might take me a while...

            Jim's moustache is so white it GLOWS!

                        I just needed a second to vent: I work at Subway and while customer service is one thing, I am so irritated by customers who demand complete servitude while ordering what they want on their stinkin' sub!

                        Okay, I'm done.

                        Moving right along...

                          LOL roshni ... didn't you know that Subway sandwiches cost $756.00? Oh wait, they are $4.69 .... hmmmmmm .... maybe they need Super 8 service, not Ritz Carlton service!! You could even put up a "this is not the Ritz" sign for your own amusement in the back somewhere. LOL!

                          And when is the rally again? April? We would really like to go. Kate, where do you have a room reserved? (pm if you don't want to post it publicly).

                                I'm getting really curious about this rally, since we live kind of close we might drive up for one day....maybe for May 1 or 2. So which day was the mos "fun" day last year? Or maybe should I ask, what day are we needed the most?

                                though we do have sooo much going on right now- we just found out that our roof is rotten and we need some major roof repair along with our 35,000 bathroom makover and $4000 Easter weekend in Walt Disney World!! Our very first real family vacation since the accident. The only reason why we are going that horror weekend is beacuse of my husbands sister who is getting married- we all tried to convince her to pick another weekend, oh well. Any tips for all I have to look forward to is greatly appreciated. I will be flying by myself with two small children and C6 husband. Plus I've never been there!!
