Scott and Bridget met in 1993 and were married in 2001. In September of 2003 we welcomed our first miracle, James. 16 months later we brought home our second miracle, Annie. And in October of 2006 our family was complete with miracle #3, Gracie. Rett syndrome entered our lives when Annie was diagnosed on May 19, 2006. This is the life of the MacDonald family as we juggle 3 small children and battle Rett Syndrome until Gods perfect time when we are cured.

Day 1, Week 2

Annie's still doing great. She had Sunday off and was back at work Monday morning. At breakfast I told Annie that we were going to therapy and she started hyperventilating and smiling from ear to ear! It's hard work, she's not always all smiles and giggles when she's there but she sure is determined to get up and walk on her own! Here's some video from today's therapy - this is Annie stepping up onto a box. One of the hardest things for Annie is getting her knees to bend, she wants to keep them locked but they have to bend in order to walk and get up stairs.
