"July 7, 2014 On this day, we met enemy #2 - a formidable foe. The genetic test confirmed that our sweet little girl of 3-and-a-half years has Rett Syndrome. RS robs little girls of the ability to speak, walk, and have purposeful use of their hands and limbs. Breathing issues, scoliosis, osteoporosis, and seizures may be in our future. RS has been likened to a mix of Autism, Parkinson’s, Apraxia, and Epilepsy – all rolled together. We were devastated by the news, but a strange peace came also. Three years of guessing, searching, crying, wondering, praying, and questioning led us to this. We now had focus, and specific direction. Our prayers are now specific, and we could ask others to pray as well. "Today -We still cling to hope, but a bit redefined. We hope in our God, and we also hope in a cure on this side of heaven. The devil is in the Rett Syndrome, but our God is in the cure, and there is tangible hope for that cure. Scientists have reversed RS in mouse experiments, and symptoms improved. Please click here and here to learn more about the exciting discoveries and on-going work to translate this into a viable treatment for our Rett girls. It could take awhile, but we will do our part to speed it along. Our goal is to raise awareness and money for Rett research and treatments, AND, to make Blakely the best possibly Blakely she can be while we wait." 💜
