abbie revisted, whew

one of the most popular blogs that ive written
in the 3 years ive been blogging is this one
(click on it and reread it)

that i wrote about a former patient who was born
without her lower left arm
and how motivated she is to overcome this

in the blog there is a short video of a few seconds of her
doing tumbling flips
still dont know how she does it

if you read this blog just think what would our american
schools be like if all the students were as driven and
motivated as this young lady

one of the best things that happened at our silent auction
for our walk to end alzheimers team was that
i got to see abbie for the first time in three years
she stopped by to say hi
and her mom placed a bid for our organic green
square foot garden
abbie was my patient for several years before i had to
retire from practice

ive kept up with what she is doing through facebook
and contacts with her mom

what a beautiful intelligent little girl
a 7th grader
who was on her way to competitive cheerleading practice
you know like those you see on espn

she also this year made the 7th grade volleyball team
and has had to learn to adapt her disability
well she doesnt ever think she has one
so she can play the sport

she also plans to play basketball and run track
yes shes done these before and is one of the better
athletes in these sports

what made me think of abbie this morning
was i ran across this article on the new miss iowa
and this one
nicole kelly

i thought
wow thats abbie in about 10 years

this miss iowa is
just like abbie

yes abbie is the hope for the future
as she inspires her friends and others
we need more of our kids to be like her


thats all i can say
last night as i watched the eagles outrun the washington team
i had to use the pause button on my remote so i could rest
that was so exciting to watch
i cant wait to see what they do to the cowboys
not sure the nfl is ready for this
using guards as wide receivers
then running the ball

i think the announcers even were getting tired trying
to keep up
and the refs
the washington defense was gassed

the eagles seem to have the talent to go with this system
mike vick seems to be the perfect fit for this offense

its going to be a great nfl season
sure hope the eagles games will all be on tv
