What A Day! Hope is Here Again!

Dear Friends & Family,

Today we met a man who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease 10 years ago. His name is Steve and he is 47, walking, talking, and living life to the fullest. He is an energetic dad with a very active life which includes baja racing, kayaking, skiing, and motorcycle riding. Steve has been able to drastically slow and even reverse the effects of ALS. He contributes this to a positive attitude, healthy diet and lots of supplements including Lutimax. Today we met the maker, inventor and patent-er of Lutimax. His name is Tom (we referred to him as the mad scientist). He is a great guy with a big heart. We (Curt, Jeff Henderson & I) sat in his office for four hours listening to stories of the people he has helped with ALS, Autism, Parkinson's, Turrets, Brain Cancer and more. It was obvious to us that this is a very caring man who is more interested in helping heal people than making money.

While we were in the office Tom placed some Lutimax powder under Curt's tongue. He waited 18 minutes (random #) and Tom asked Curt to talk. Curt's speech definitely improved. We were all a little surprised. Tom said Curt's speech should improve quickly, muscle twitching should minimize, tight muscles should loosen up and he should gain strength in his legs. He said to use the walker as much as possible and save the wheelchair for Costco. Anyways, he kept Curt, Jeff and I on the edge of our seats with his stories and encouragement. My heart was dancing! We have a chance at a future!

We left his office with supplements, Lutimax, a healthy eating plan, a work out plan, intention to get a weekly massage and most of all HOPE! What a day!

The West High Guys (and one from North High- we still love u)
This past weekend we enjoyed dinner at Kobe Steakhouse Friday night with Mark & Kelli. So fun watching the teppan chef juggle eggs and knives.

On Saturday, Jeff & Alicia Henderson opened their gorgeous home in Torrance for a party with all the West High guys and wives. We enjoyed visiting with everyone while eating freshly prepared tacos and drinking margaritas. The kids enjoyed listening to the guys talk about their high school days and trips to the desert motorcycle riding. Thank you Jeff, Alicia, Vanessa and Victoria for such a great party!

We spent Sunday at Paul & Lisa Popp's new home in Acton lounging by the pool with some of our favorite families, drinking homemade Sangria. Hanging out together was just what our family needed. The sun was warm, the breeze was nice and the view was great. We love your new home, congratulations!

Thank you all for praying last week. We really appreciate all who reached out with comments on the blog, emails, cards and calls. Thank you all for offering support and helping us (me) through a tough week.

Cayden got his drivers permit this past week. He is very excited and likes to drive everywhere we go including the freeways to Torrance and Acton. He drives great and we are so proud!

We love our friends and family! Thanks for supporting us through prayer and thoughts.

Cindy, Curt, Clarissa, Cayden & Corbin

Dearest Cindy,
Last week I attempted to write a message to you. I tried 3 times, each time my words sounded trite in the face of your situation. I am so happy you again have hope in your future. Thank God!
Jamie and I want to take you out for girl's night out. Let me know when you are available.
Love and Kisses,

Curt, Cindy and Family,

Our vacation and troubled laptop issues has kept us out of the loop a bit, but WOW!...it was great to read your post. You deserve some hope after being hopeless. Heck, who can blame you guys when the outcome seemed inevitable. Now, things are different and so your hope has been renewed.

A good friend told me some sound advice. Allow yourself to feel whatever emotions come along. Don't fight them, but feel them completely. Last week you were walking through the valley of the shadow of death, and now you've been taken to a pinnacle of hope. Feel it, enjoy it, and be thankful for it....of anyone you guys deserve it!

We will continue to keep you in our prayers as always.
