Test ... adding photo?

Pearls and Dreams

2NewspaperonDonschest Newspaper & Bear 2 or 3 weeks old crawling on Don's chest. Yes, Don's back is as crooked as it looks,he's laying as flat as he can lay. Actually, this picture, all pictures, don't quite show the severity of it, he'd have to have his shirt off for the severity to show. He'd clobber me if I tried that. He had polio at age 3, and spent several months in an iron lung. He's 98 lbs. He's 5 foot 4 on one foot, 5'0'' on the other. Had he not had polio, he'd be 6'4'' (according to the orthopedic surgeon we saw to see if the displaced spinal cord in his neck could be taken care of). His lung capacity is below 50%. He should be on oxygen, he'd feel a heck of a lot better, but he's stubborn ..refusing to believe it will help ..go figure. The kittens ... the gray one is Newspaper, the black one is Bear, their mother's name is Donut. Below is one of the kittens Aunt Sugarfoot sitting in Don's lap, and Don is sitting as straight up as he can sit.



  1. Thanks for the comment. You're right - our generation doesn't have the perspective that previous ones did, the ones who had to suffer through these kinds of things. Your story will help people realize the need for vaccines, and I applaud you for sharing it. I wish you and your husband the best.
