    Who are the Family Forum Members?

    Just to get the ball rolling, I thought it'd be interesting to see where our 'family membership' lies. So tell us who you are! And if I've left out a category, I only had five lines to work with! [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I'll go first, since I'm here already [img]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]. I'm Marmalady, aka Jackie, mother of Matt, my 27 year old son with a C4-5 SCI, as well as a TBI. I'm also a moderator of the 'Caregiving' forum, and have been with the CareCure site since its beginning.

      Looks like you and I are the only ones to vote so far, Marmalady. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

      I am Jesse's Mom, Joey. Jesse is 23 years old, a C7, incomplete since Dec. 14, 2002. He lives in CA going to therapy and I live in Minnesota with my husband and our other son, Jesse's brother, Bert. We have a family business which is beekeeping.

        I'm Martha, my children are Tatiana (tata489)and Ruslan (ruru482). Unfortunately their father--C7 quad, 27 years post--and I are about to divorce. However he will always be their father, and I know they are looking forward to meeting other children of sci's out there and talking about stuff.

        For me, the entire Care/Cure forum has helped me to better understand my soon-to-be ex-husband. It has helped me sort out a lot of issues that hurt all of us in our little family--some of them sci related, others not.

        Thanks again Wise, Jeff, Bethney, Marmalady, etc. What you do every day for all of us out here is incomprehensible. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

              Hi, my son Jason is almost 14 and became paralysed after a collision with another soccer player seven years ago. He suffered an ischeamic brainstem stroke ( basilar artery dissection ) and became locked-in. He is incomplete now, but still completely dependent on others for his care.

              I've always only been interested in CURE issues since I feel there wouldn't be any care issues if we could just bring about the cure.

              BTW Nanda, I was born in Bogota but have European parents

                    I'm betheny, a c5-6 walking quad and a mother. My stepson is 22, I've had him 20 yrs. now. My son Jacob is 14. I also have a 2 yr old granddaughter named Kayli who is pretty darned special. These kids keep life interesting, they teach me a lot, they drive me to distraction and make me laugh, sometimes simultaneously. I am very proud to meet all of you!

                            In addition to being one of the SCI-Nurses, I am the child of a mother with severe MS (EDSS 8.5) and act as her care giver when my parents travel or when I am visiting their home. They have a wonderful PCA who does her care most of the time, and of course my dad helps too, but he is 81 years old, so can only do limited things.
