In November of 2011, Our cute Poppy starting having muscle spasms throughout his body. He received many blessings and as of March, was officially diagnosed with ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. It's been a rough couple of months to say the least. We've watched our Poppy go from being a very active man to requiring quite a bit more help. Help that is always happily given and also accepted. He has never once complained and verbally spoken the words, "Why me?" He just keeps swimming if you will. He's so inspirational and a light to everyone he comes in contact with.
He is choosing to remain positive and to keep his contagious and fun personality going strong...as you can see from above.
While we were in San Diego, darling friends or family...we don't really know, took it upon themselves to give Jim and Joanne a proper homecoming! This is what they found in their front yard.
The whole front and back of the house will FILLED with birds!
Birds, birds and more birds!!!
A few even had signs saying "Let's give ALS the BIRD"! So YES, let's! We don't feel that this is the end, and are very hopeful that treatments received will help our sweet Poppy! We need him HERE and will do everything in our power to do so! We love you Honey and Poppy and will be there for you both every single step of the way.
