When it rain it pours


I've wanted to meet another family that have gone through the whole Infantile Spasms ordeal since Sheena was diagnosed. I have spoken to the Epilepsy Foundation, checked blogs, but to no avail. My only connection was a yahoo group with parents chatting about the different treatments and the like. However over the last 2 days I have been connected with two other families within a 30 minute drive from us that also had the diagnosis.
Here is Sheena particularly delighted in her wave jumping exploits.

Wow that is great! Glad you found some so close by. Sheena is looking like a happy camper in the water :-)

Are the kids of a similar age? It would be good to meet them.

This is a gorgeous photograph. Your daughter is a real cutie! Thanks for stopping by my blog - so you were born in Nova Scotia? And now you live in Australia - where abouts? My husband has lots of family in Melbourne, they are coming out here for a reunion this September so that should be fun. We have both lived in the Uk most of our lives though. It's such a small world, and seems so much smaller when you're in blogworld too!
I look forward to reading more about Sheena.
