And I'm really upset. Its some sort of muscle disease. If it gets worse...he could end up in a wheel chair.

I just...I'm in shock. I don't know what to say.

You can take the Wooer out of the Woo, but you can't take the Woo out of the Wooer.

  • The thing is, we've taken away all the things that can't possibly have happened, so I suppose the only thing that's left, even though it seems really weird, must be the thing that did happen in fact!

I'm sorry. I hope something good will come out of this. It must be very hard to deal with, so I send you a hug.

I'm very sorry too:(. I hope he recovers from that illness---->give him a lot of kisses & hugs. i think that giving tender to someone who is ill gives a lot of strength to that person & on the contrary, when a person is ill, if one can give tender to other person, one feels better inside.

What age is your brother? :huh: He might be ok, sometimes these things effect people in a moderate 'easy to live with' way. Hopefully he will be able to manage it and live a long life. :)

well..

the disease has no cure.


it doesn't matter, although that disease hasn't got any cure (i don't know about that disease very much), it's much better -for the person who is ill- to give tender & hope to that person, because when one has an illness one needs affection & love.

Yes, I hope so, too. I was just reading the Wikipedia article. I didn't realize there were so many different kinds of muscular dystrophy! There is such a wide range of effects and severity. But of course, I know this is sad news no matter which kind he has.

Sign up to the world community grid, and your computer can help find a cure for muscular dystrophy, aids or cancer or whatever the net gives it to work on.
It is the best ever.
