When Life Hands You Lemons....

Ellen over at To The Max has gifted me with the Lemonade Award! Thanks Ellen! I'll pass this on to some of the bloggers I follow with infallible spirits and doggedly upbeat attitudes:

Princess Abigail (and her Mama) at The Bernard Bunch
Ashley's Mom at Pipecleaner Dreams
Now there's a bunch of ladies that know what to do with lemons!

Thanks for the "Lemonade"--I'll be sure to pass it on!

I really liked your post about Connor's chromosome problem. That was a great way to simplify the explanation of a really complicated genetic concept.

Unfortunately, getting a "short" name for your child's syndrome doesn't necessarily make explaining it any easier. Evan has CHARGE syndrome,which is much easier to say than "he has a mutation in the CHD7 gene" (at the moment I'm drawing a blank on which chromosome the gene is on). But because the vast majority of people have never heard of CHARGE Syndrome either, I still usually end up launching in to a long explanation of the issues it causes to avoid the whole "eye glazing" you have spoken of. And even with the explanation, there is still a fair amount of eye glazing...

May I add Connor to our Friends link list?
