Motivational Slump

This post has been a long time coming at least in the blogosphere (I’m pretty sure that’s a word but my spell check says otherwise). I’ve been really MIA on posting for the past two months. I can say it is all a combination of being super motivated to get Claude’s Conquest ready for publishing (sill not even close) and other writing side projects, but mostly just blatant laziness and I dare say a touch of outside world interference (mandatory trips to see my parents and helping my sister move).  Then to add insult to injury my brain has decided it doesn’t want to make sense at all so even when i have the time and I remember to log in, all I manage to put down is a bunch of rambling nonsense.  Kind of like now…lol.  So please, all the people I think actually read my blog I promise to be more diligent in my posts and not just cute pictures of my sidekick although those are sure to come.  Oh and Claude’s Conquest is still set to be out on Amazon by December but in the meantime if you haven’t checked it out already the first book in the Maura’s Men series Xander’s Claim is available now, only 99cents on Amazon.

GianRaul’s Stem Cell Fund

GianRaul’s Stem Cell Fund

This fund will be used to help get 2 year old GianRaul 2nd round of Stem Cell Therapy.

GianRaul Moreno Olivo (GMO) sustained a Brain Injury at Birth. Doctors were not able to find his heart beat until 15 minutes after birth and it was not until 30 mins after delivery did GianRaul took his first voluntary breathe. This is why GMO is truly God’s Miracle On earth. Due to the lack of oxygen his brain received at birth, also known as Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE), GMO was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and Epilepsy among other things. There are no cures for these diagnoses but with Brain Injury you can teach a person to use their body with intensive therapy and other alternative therapies. One of those therapies is Stem Cell Therapy.

Last year, with the help of generous donors we were able to take GMO to Panama to get his first round of Stem Cell therapy. Since his treatment in August we have seen; a significant decrease in seizure activity and less stiffness in limbs. We have also noticed more eye tracking and alertness. He has also been showing signs of cognitive understanding. These are all HUGE improvement in GianRaul’s quality of life and I am certain these gains have a direct result from receiving stem cells last summer.

This year we would like to build on the gains that GianRaul has already made by taking him back for 2nd round of stem cells, but we can’t do it alone. Please help us get GianRaul his second round of stem cell by purchasing a limited edition “GMO” t-shirt. The GMO team has teamed up with Malaysian author and artist Kopi Soh to bring to you this unique fun design that celebrates youth and childhood. For every t-shirt sold $15 will go directly to GianRaul in order to get stem cells.

Stem Cell Therapy is expensive and is NOT covered by insurance. The cost of Stem Cell Therapy is $15,500 and that does not include Flight, travel expenses or accommodations. We have chosen to travel back to Panama to get GianRaul’s stem cells since we have seen first hand results. Stem Cell Injections are not a cure but they help GMO have a better quality of life. I invite you to be part of the “GMO” team and purchase a t-shirt and/or donate to GianRaul’s Stem Cell Fund. Also feel free to post a picture of yourself wearing the T-shirt on GianRaul’s facebook fan page https://www.facebook.com/GMOGianRaul

Thank you for being part of our family and helping us continue creating Miracles for GMO

Handwritten

image

When I tell people I write for fun they always think that means I have good handwriting.  In reality it’s the complete opposite, the more I write the worse my penmanship gets.  My brain is crafting sentences faster then my hands can write. My letters become miniscule, words become smudged and smooshed together, and page lines don’t matter as I’m furiously penning my masterpiece. The end product even I get a headache trying to decipher.

I’m not saying my handwriting is always that bad but I’d rather people stop assuming I’m the perfect person to make those block letters on posters or take minutes during meetings. Instead call me for a witty catch phrase or help making your speech less snooze inducing.
