Welcome to Dake's Blog

This blog is designed to give you updates on Dake as he enters his journey to Johns Hopkins/Kennedy Krieger Institue Center in Baltimore, Maryland. This is a clinical trial in research focusing on the heart of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy patients. This is not a treatment, it is research. Dake chose to participate in hopes for himself and for those who unfortunately follow behind him.

I will also share a little into our lives. Dake wants his story told....

The good, the bad and the ugly......

For more information on the research at Johns Hopkins on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy scroll to bottom of the blog.

Dake and his grandmother, GaLou have decided to take a conversational Spanish class through the continuing education at the Athens State location downtown.   Today was the first day. Dake was a little nervous but excited.  He was definitely curious. Mom called early this morning and said the instructor called and they are postponing the class until September. I told him today when he was half asleep but I think he was a little disappointed by the delay. GaLou was afraid the class was going to be canceled when they called today so we are glad it is still on.

     Dake doesn't hear well phonically. He is dyslexic.  Learning if not taught in his style can be quite difficult.   He has never taken Spanish but has traveled twice to Mexico for mission trips. He loved interacting with the people especially the children. (and they loved him.)  And, of course having a little sister from Guatemala the desire is enhanced to learn the language.
Going with his GaLou there is a guarantee they will have FUN!
