Its Been Ages!

Okay, it has been awhile since I have updated this. Things have been crazy though. May 21st was the 5K that I organized to raise money for research for Eosinophilic Disorders. That took a lot of time and effort. I don't have the final number in yet, I am still waiting for one more check, but it is looking like we did really well for our first fundraiser! All the money is going to APFED so they can give it to researchers. It is so important to learn as much as possible about these disorders.

I also have the ball rolling on getting Will down to Cincinnati Childrens Hospital. They are the national leaders in treating and researching Eosinophilic Disorders (EGID). I have a bunch of paperwork that I have to get in to them along with all of his medical records. Then once they have everything they need, we will schedule his appointment. They are scheduling for September right now. It is a week long appointment with many different specialists. We still really like DeVos Childrens Hospital. We just want to be sure he is getting the newest and best care possible.

On to other news, Matts Dad just came up for a visit this weekend. It is so nice for Matt to get to see him. We only get to see him once a year since he is in Colorado now. We all went golfing yesterday and walked around downtown today before he had to leave.

Oh, I almost forgot. Will was also featured in a local news story on food allergies. Here is the link if you want to check him out in all of his cuteness! http://www.uppermichiganssource.com/news/story.aspx?id=615719

Okay, I promise to start keeping this updated more often now. Talk to you all later!
