      Perhaps some of you will remember me. My mom, Barbara, (72yrs) was dx’d with severe GBS in Oct 2004. After 2.5 years, SHE IS STARTING TO WALK!!! Last week she walked 50 feet, rested, then went another 50 feet. So for the many of you out there who are faultering in your determination, who are doubting your own determination…..never, ever give up.

      Another celebration this week…. Tomorrow morning Mom will wake up to say, “I have been completely off my vent for one whole week!” 2.5 years and she’s [COLOR=”Red”][B]G[/B][/COLOR]etting [COLOR=”Red”][B]B[/B][/COLOR]etter [COLOR=”Red”][B]S[/B][/COLOR]lowly.

      She is beautiful. Her life is beautiful. Her determination and will are amazing. I am truly blessed to call her mom, and blessed to have this difficult process in my life to teach me what is truly important. I hope this thread brings you smiles and hope and a determined feisty attitude that keeps you going!

      What an amazing thrill! Thank you so much for sharing with us. I really look forward to getting to know Barbara “in person” 🙂 She will certainly have lots to share from her experience.

      I second your thoughts: Never, ever give up! Tomorrow just may be “The Day”.

      Please keep us informed as to your Mom’s progress. And give her hugs from all of us!

      It just goes to show that sometimes it takes longer for some but they can get there eventually.
      Give mom a hug from Me and Nate.
