VETERANS DAY 2013
First, thank you to all service members, past and present, for their tireless service. It IS greatly appreciated.
As always, it gets me back to thinking about those who have had to adjust to a 'new normal' after a head injury, particularly one that caused an acquired case of hydrocephalus. My heart goes out to those having to make the adjustment personally, as well as family members, caregivers & friends, who also must make the many adjustments to incorporating hydrocephalus, or any resulting conditions, into life.
The support group has been trying, for quite sometime, to get the word out about our meetings for all those impacted by the fallout after a hydrocephalus diagnosis. This month's meeting will be on November 16th, from 12:45 pm til 3:00 pm, in the Casey Conference Room at Swedish Hospital's Cherry Hill campus (17th & Jefferson, Seattle). As always, drop ins are welcome, as well as kids.
I'm also getting ready for the transition now that Seattle has a new Mayor, Ed Murray. I'm hoping that Mayor Murray will be open to expanding the conversation and education of the police, and other first responders, to acquired hydrocephalus and its prevention. We are in the process of putting together a packet of information for the police department about acquired hydrocephalus, which is a first step in the right direction.
Looking forward to this month's meeting!
