Children's Rare Disease Network

We decided this month's donation should go to Children's Rare Disease Network.

Children's Rare Disease Network provides education, support and resources to parents, families of children with rare diseases, as well as the researchers that support them. Diseases like Ivemark Syndrome and MODY syndrome. Diseases that are less understood and well, largely underfunded in the research spectrum.

You can find more information about CRDN here.

Just Because

For some reason the people in my life like to give me salt and pepper shakers. I'm not a particular fan of salt and pepper shakers, but I suppose it's better then being given candy dishes or sugar bowls and honestly, I've come to appreciate them for the gifts that they are and the thought behind each odd pair that I now own.

My most recent set are two love birds. They stand about 3 inches tall and my parrotlet seems to think they're pretty cool. He sat there and chattered at them until he got bored and went off to play with the parakeet.

He's a goofy little bird.

Oh and by the way, my liver biopsy was all normal like. I haven't heard if they found any islets in the tissue taken during the bipsy yet. I'll keep you updated as soon as I hear anything more.
