My Son
« on: June 08, 2006, 10:18:55 AM »
Okay, sometimes I gloat about my kids here.  They deserve it.  My son's (his friends call him D) baseball team is 28-4 and now ranked number 1 in the state of Missouri and number 6 in the nation.  They have already secured a pretty good seed at the World Series this year in Arkansas.  D plays center field and bats leadoff and is the team's leading hitter.

Better than that, he is a good kid.

Just had to brag...

Hey all, sorry it took so long to get back.  We have been busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest.

Hal, they play in Bentonville, Arkansas not altogether sure of the date yet.  I will let you know.

Theresa,  D is 14.

They are playing in a tournament this weekend.  It was hotter than fuck (taken from the potty mouth queue).  Three games yesterday, and three today. The cocky little shits got their butts kicked in the first game, but have battled back.

Yeah Justin, I do think they have a shot.  They are real deep in pitching, which you have to be when playing that many games.

An interesting stat.  Every time D has led the game off with a hit, they have spread ed their opponents.  Hmm.

Hello John,

 It's great, that you have such a good relationship with your son. I never had any kids, but plenty of neices and nephews, that I watched when they were younger.

Kids are great, as long as they belong to someone else!! ;)

Current Meds ; Viramune, Epzicom, 40mg of simvastatin, 25 mg of Hydrochlorothiazide.
Metoprolol tartrate 25mg






Diagnosed positive in 1985,.. In October of 2003, My t-cell count was 16, Viral load was over 500,000, Percentage at that time was 5%. I started on  HAART on October 24th, 2003.

 As of 9/16/16,  t-cells are at 501,   Viral load remains <40

Current % is at 12%

 65 years young.

Yeah Ray, I think I have great relationships with all my kids. My dad was non existant in my life.  I think because of that I maybe go overboard sometimes with them, but what the hell. 

I speak openly about my status to them, and they have seen the difference in me since Trish has been here. 

I love summer time...
