Welcome to Down Syndrome Awareness Month. In an attempt to increase awareness, I'm going to try to blog every day this month (a task that might be beyond reach given our upcoming move to MN, but I'll try). I may not blog about DS every day, but I'll try to put a post out there.
Let's start with a request for questions. Is there anything you've wondered about Down syndrome (or Micah specifically) but were afraid to ask? I'll try to get to questions throughout the month. You can post questions anonymously. As long as it's not completely disrespectful or something, I'll answer.
I tried 31 for 21 last October too. Given the circumstances, I was pretty successful (I posted 24 of 31 days). Micah was in the hospital the first 10 days of the month (after being admitted on 9/28/08 for what was eventually determined to be a GI virus). I'm thrilled that it's been almost a full year since Micah had an overnight in the hospital (he had his little boy surgery in December and didn't have to stay!).
Ooo, one more question for y'all to contribute to the postings... Are you giving your kids (DS or not) the seasonal flu vaccine and/or the H1N1 vaccine?
