Took these photos of flowers over by the railroad yesterday when we took Shelby for a walk. I don't know the name of either, so if you know please leave a comment and tell me. Isn't the one so delicate?

We went to Indianapolis yesterday to visit my nephew and his wife...he is the son of my oldest sister and is a month older than me. I was a change of life baby....muscular dystrophy runs in our family from my dad's side of the family. We have a very rare has been studied at the IUPUI Medical Center in Indianapolis. Actually, I think we are the only family known to have it.

We could go and be tested for free...and you could either ask to know if you were positive for it or not. I was too chicken to be tested...I could not have done it without finding out if I had it. And I really didn't want to know if I tested positive for it. I might have acted different if we had not had children already.

The nephew we went to visit yesterday has a brother and sister and they are both positive for far they are the only ones that show they have it. It is hard seeing him like that--he only has 20% usage of his lungs. But he used to spend summers with us in Tennessee. So we are more like brother and sister.
