My wife Regina and I have two children Aidan who is 10 and Cecelia (Cece) who is 9. They were born 15 months apart and they have always been close. Aidan is a great big brother to Cece and does all the things that big brothers do. If you meet him he will proudly tell you he was the first person to make Cece laugh and he is probably right.
Today we were interviewed along with some of Cece’s staff for news story relating to a seizure Cece had in December.
Here is the awesome TV coverage and yes Cece was a perfect Shining Star!!

Thursday in Minnesota was beautiful afternoon full of sun and warm temperatures. Our daughter Cece loves to go on walks when the weather is nice out so this above normal day in January gave her an opportunity to do just that. Usually the personal care attendant (PCA) would take her for a walk by herself but since my wife decided to go with her since it was nice out and Cece has had two grand mal seizures in two weeks.
Cece loves her baby dolls so when she walks she will push one of her dolls in a wheelchair in front of her. The route they took was the normal route which means that they know many of the people from previous walks because they will talk to people if they are outside. At about 3:40 they noticed her hand would not stay on the handle and when they were asking her if she was ok she was not responding normally. Once they realized she was having a complex partial seizure they took her out of the wheelchair and placed her on the PCA’s lap who was by now sitting on the ground. (more…)
