At age 11 and out of the blue, Jimmy lost his balance. His diagnosis is Acute Cerebellar Ataxia. He is currently wheelchair bound and we are working hard to find whatever it is that we need to fix. Here's where I'll try to keep everyone in the loop about what's going on.

Saturday, May 8

It's a beautiful day outside, we had hoped to get to the pool, but Jimmy's not feeling up to it so we're just chilling. He feels okay when he is horizontal, but when he gets up his head hurts. The poor kid just can't catch a break. I read that caffeine helps you heal from a post-lumbar headache, so I got him a java chip frappuccino. He's frustrated and bored, we're tired of this crap. He's tired of laying around and he's tired of needing help. I'm tired of calling doctors and seeing doctors and wondering if we should be seeing different doctors. I'm tired of talking about it and thinking about it and even writing about it. We're just tired.
