Happy birthday Max...Has mom ever considered a Companion Dog for you? Your almost old enough. :-)
Thank you Rich! We would love to get him a companion dog, but he has to have a standard poodle, as he is allergic to other big dogs. (We have a little poodle mix now)Do you know of any organizations that train standard poodles for companion dogs?
Happy Birthday Max, I love you and wish you all the best for the coming year
Hi Deana, I am Vijay's friend and neighbour....have met Steve few times at Vijay's place...Here's wishing Max a very happy birthday, and a terrific year ahead!I read your LONG post about Max's condition and am so deeply touched. You are so so inspiring! Love n hugz...will meet u when u visit CA!
What a great video! My favorite is Max smiling in his Happy Birthday hat :) Happy, happy birthday Mr. Max!
Read you have some allergies to gelatin.. try going to an allergist office for the H1N1 vaccine. They might be able to help. Here at Mayo they do a special vaccine clinic in the Allergy and Asthma office. Best of Luck
Max says thank you for the birthday wishes Aunt Zainab!Shachi, Steve has told me of you! Thank you for your birthday wishes to Max. We will meet next time I am there!Heather, it's my favorite too. I don't know if I've ever got a picture of him smiling so big! Anonymous, thanks for the tip. Max is severely allergic to the gelatin that is in most vaccines. I have tracked down the seasonal and h1n1 vaccine without gelatin in it. His allergist tried to get it, but they are not contracted with the company (novartis) to get it from them at The Children's Hospital. So we have to find it at a clinic somewhere else and they write a prescription for it. Then we would take the vaccine back to TCH and get the injection there...but we would have to do it in the PICU because of the risk of allergy. I don't know that we are willing to catch the virus by placing him in the PICU to get the vaccine!
Happy Birthday MAX! 6 yrs old and SO cute I wish I could hug you! Love, Deana RuhlDeana - loved reading your blog and catching up on Max's life-fascinating and inspiring. I have an 8 yr old with Down Syndrome and AV canal (leaky heart valve). Where does Max go to school? PA special needs support has been wonderful for us and a real learning experience.... how has it been in Colorado? This past yr, it appears that Alana has a special gift for swimming.... I am officially telling people that she is training for the Olympics! ;-) Swim try outs for Spec Olympics is in the Spring - not sure if there will be actual "cuts" though :-). Again, never been involved with Spec O stuff in past so whole new experience for us. My husband Doug is very involved with Alana and adores her.... SUCH a blessing as I have come to find out.... so many Dads abandon their spec needs kids, very sad..... my email is firstname.lastname@example.org and you know where I live on facebook so chat soon. We need to "befriend" each other on FB soon.....
