I'd like to offer you all the opportunity to ask questions. I know many of you have the same questions, or feel that this isn't the right place to ask them. If that's the case, feel free to email me the questions too at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm a pretty open person, and this blog definitely has made me more open in some ways. But I am becoming more guarded in some respects - so please don't be offended if I do not post and answer one of your questions.
The only thing I ask is that you not ask me "Isn't there something they can do for Joshua? A surgical option since he's doing so well?" Yes, he is doing well. But, no, there is not a good surgical option. We have been offered a surgical option. No, it's not any good. No, I won't explain what they've offered. We have looked into a few options that have been sent to us by people, but so far they haven't resulted in anything positive.
But please, ask me whatever you like? It doesn't have to relate to Joshua, it doesn't have to be a strange question (though it can be). It can be in relation to our family, our work, our college experience. I don't mind. And I know you've got questions. So go ahead and ask.
