      Hello Dear Friends::p

      I hunted all over the place wondering where to put this post and finally decided to start a new one under “Happy Stories” – actually, I already thought there was one but couldn’t find it. I am having a difficult time learning my way around this forum – nothing is categorized! Oh well, on with the happy story…………..

      My granddaughter had to do a presentation for school (she is 11 years old) and she asked her mom if she could do it on GBS! She and another classmate did the project together. My daughter set the video camera up and my granddaughter proceeded to interview her mom on GBS. Since I had been through GBS, my daughter has done a lot of research on it so was quite knowledgeable to answer all the questions.

      To make a long story short, the teacher asked the class if they gained anything from this presentation…….all the hands went up. The teacher commended the girls on their presentation and said how excellent it was and deserves an A+.

      What impressed me, was my granddaughter wanted to spread the word about GBS and that she did! When I contracted GBS, I had never heard of it before………spoken by a proud grandma.

      Hugs, Myrt

      Gosh, that’s brilliant Myrt!

      What an ace story. I can only say my congratulations and commendations to those young people.

      They put me in mind of the stone thrown in a pond and the ripples spreading outwards.

      The children are listening. Which just goes to prove my belief that children are beautiful.

      Dear Myrt:

      That was a great story. When my daughter contracted GBS while in college, she phoned me within minutes of the first symptoms. Needless to say, I made sure she got medical treatment immediately. She was getting IVIG within hours of the first noticable symptom. I never knew she paid any attention to anything about GBS, partly because I don’t much like talking about to non-GBSers, but she did. Our children and grandchildren sometimes know a whole lot more than we give them credit for.

      Dear Myrt,

      What a great story I had goosebumps when I read it. Kids are great and they often surprise us with what they do.

      What a wonderful story! Since my father got GBS, I have done so much research on it. I feel like I’m on a mission to learn as much as I can about it, sometimes because it is so unpredictable and so vaguely attracted.
      I had NEVER heard about it before, but it’s interesting to hear how many other people HAVE heard about it once I talk about it.
      We’ll all spread the word & educate after all!
