    Our little granddaughter in AZ is one that adults can converse with. We saw early on that she can talk the ears off an elephant, and can be quite funny as well. She was diagnosed with an inoperable, but very slow growing, brain tumor just before turning 7, and we had people sending cards, calling, etc. that we didn't even know she knew. Staff at her school (other than her teacher) called to check on her. She has spoken at many fund raising events, such as one for Phoenix Childrens Hospital, sharing the dias with the mayor when a new wing was being announced.
    Kids can be amazing....
    Wow, she sounds amazing!

    How is she doing. Does cyberknife technology give her a better prognosis?

    The doctors won't say.....she is on chemo and tolerating it well. Will likely go on radiation therapy when she gets a little older. One of her doctors has a girl in college with a very similar condition, so we know that he will be up on the newest and best treatments available. But with the tumor intertwined around other brain tissue, there isn't much hope for a surgical solution.

    Here is her blog...Makenzie Moore

    She gets another MRI next week to see what may have happened when her counts were too low to have chemo for several weeks. We hope for the best for her but fear for her future. All we can do is have faith in the skills of her doctors...and in God's will....

    My mother had an aggressive blioblastoma. Those have "tentacles" as well. She was operated on but it only gave her an extra three months over the prognosis if she didn't have the operation. She was put to sleep during the operation out of fear of her having a seizure during the operation. This meant that they had a greater risk of injuring the brain. They did. She couldn't speak properly (Sentences didn't make sense) and her right side was paralyzed. She also had an aggressive attitude. She refused chemo and radiation that was supposed to follow the surgery.

    I hope she can beat this. It sounds like she has the right attitude to beat it.

    Children in these situations are amazing.
    When we were visiting her at Phoenix Children's Hospital there were a lot of other children there in ICU rooms and we asked one nurse how she could stand to see all the little ones sick and dying. She said it is heart breaking at times, but the kids are much better patients than the adults she used to work with. Kids rarely complain about their problems.
    Over the last few years, Makenzie has grown to realize that this can be fatal. She has had a few friends die, but she won't talk about them much after they go. We all tried to keep her from full awareness, but by now she knows.....
    As grandparents, whie we are getting to see a new generation of kids grow up, we are seeing it more clearly than when raising our own kids. Environment has to be a much larger factor in IQ than we used to think. The more knowledge kids are exposed to, the more they learn...it is exponential.
    Thinking parents of this generation can help make succeeding generations achieve so much more than we did. Each generation can be better than the last, but it will always require support from the current generation...
    But too many parents are passively feeding and clothing their kids, without any real parenting/mentoring involved.

    All I have done so far is to teach my 5 year old to throw another kid off balance by pushing/grabbing their shoulder and/or hip areas. She had to use it once with a boy that was angry/frustrated and pushing her a bit. She grabbed the kid (who was much bigger than her) his shirt at his shoulder... she did the push back and then yank forward and down move. Boy gets practically flipped down to ground and his mom freaked, but a couple of other moms were impressed and knew that the boy was in the wrong. Oh well. We do what we can for our kids and teach them to be good too.

    sounds like judo, I did a bit of that for a few months in 65, and the best thing I learned was how to fall without hurting myself. Comes in handy when walking on ice....
    The push pull works, timed right. You use their own motions and muscles against them.
    ....reminds me of a "little" girl in first grade I heard about. When she wanted to kiss a boy, he might as well stand still and take it. If he didn't, she would throw him down on the ground, sit on him, and kiss him. Nowadays she would be getting in trouble for that. Back then, it was just funny.

    That is about all I know of Judo.
    I have studied Ju-Jitsu and Shotokan quite a bit before stopping a few years back.
    My wife is getting really good at Kung Fu.

    Mostly, my kids read books and play dress up games like Fairy Princess and such.

    When I was in kindergarden there was a first grader that kept pushing me off of a piece of playground equipment. My dad told me to pop him one if he didn't stop. He did it the next day and I hit him once in the mouth and he cried like a girl and never bothered me again. I did get suspended for a day but my parents were proud of me.

    I'm the queen of editing typos.

    I don't think it's all that funny.

    Not nearly as funny as the sheer amount of Einsteins I've apparently been hanging with online.
