Sunday Sunshine 02.07.10

A friend of ours was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre’ syndrome this past summer.  Guillain-Barre’ is one of those syndromes that you hope you will only ever hear about on House, one you hope your friends and family will never get.

We followed her progress on a Caring Bridge site, and I am pleased to say (and thankful to God!) that she has made a full recovery.  She recently put up a video of herself re-learning how to walk, and oh. my. goodness.  It was amazing to watch!  We haven’t seen her in person since her experience, so it was very touching to see an actual video of the journey she’s been on (see below–be sure to note that the music is tongue-in-cheek…like our friend said, it’s good to be able to laugh at yourself).  Thanks for sharing, E!

I came across this recipes site recently, and I am happy to share it with you all!

I am a huge Antique Mommy fan, and this list of hers is chock-full of wisdom.

As is this post (and the follow-up post) from Rachel at Small Notebook.  It was music to my new mother of two ears.

  1. I love the video of your friend re-learning how to walk. I’m a PT and just worked with a patient who had GBS and wish he could see this video to inspire him to hang in there. I agree with you-I don’t ever want GBS, nor do I want any family member or friend to have to deal with this awful condition.
