Hey guys, not motorcycle related, but I was hoping you'd all stop and take a second to keep positive thoughts for me and my family on Thursday.
My youngest daughter, Sophie, is having a muscle biopsy performed to determine if she has a serious muscle disease. She's only 14 months-old. There have been some concerns about a lack of muscle strength, and the neurologists are anxious to prove it's not something like Muscular Dystrophy...
Anyway, please keep her in your thoughts!
|By Befbever on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 09:58 am:|
My candle will be lit, Racerx.
|By Oldgit on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 10:50 am:|
Best wishes, may your God be with you.
|By Tbone on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 11:57 am:|
I will say a prayer. I too am a parent of a small child. My thoughts are with you.
|By Durangokid on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 12:34 pm:|
I can't image how you are feeling, so I won't pretend to. What I will offer are my prayers for your little girl and your entire family.
|By Prilliant on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 01:13 pm:|
You'll all be in my thoughts. At times like this motorcycles aren't really so important after all.
|By Powermaster on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 01:24 pm:|
Brad, The Power will be with your Daughter.
We are praying for her and a light can be seen at the end of the tunnel. Your duty now is to give strengh and care for the rest of the Family. "Et pluribus unum"
|By Racerxlilbro on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 01:48 pm:|
Words can't express how much I appreciate your support. I'll be sure to keep everyone posted. Unfortunately, the doctors won't have any results for at least two weeks...two agonizing weeks.
Prilliant, well, I'm not sure I agree. If it weren't for motorcycles, I would never have had the pleasure of all of your acquaintances!
|By Hansie on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 02:15 pm:|
Its thursday now (only just) I put my mind to it and lite a candle.
Best wishes also to the misses.
|By Spoof on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 02:16 pm:|
Here's to you and your family, Racer! Whatever happens you will all learn something and become stronger together because of it. My good thoughts are with you; I'll pray to that big motorcycle in the sky.
|By Powermaster on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 02:22 pm:|
Is it the right time for derail Yet?
Racer, How could you?
Just hang on there and will be ok
|By John1000 on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 02:47 pm:|
Fingers crossed for good news.
|By Pbeachcruzer on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 03:53 pm:|

|By Chuzo on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 05:12 pm:|
Racerx, my and my family prayers go for her.
|By Exdukenut on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 06:49 pm:|
Sorry to hear. My thoughts are with you. Hope all is positive news.
|By Crmc33 on Wednesday, August 28, 2002 - 11:57 pm:|
Best wishes to you RacerX and little Sophie
|By Daz on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 12:35 am:|
B, good luck and fingers crossed over here.
|By Kerryc on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 01:14 am:|
Thinking positive thoughts for you and your family (and keeping the fingers crossed cannot hurt).
Looking forward to hearing the good news in a couple of weeks.
|By Dixieboy on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 01:57 am:|
You and your family will be in my thoughts today may your god be smiling today of all days.
|By Islefalco on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 02:56 am:|
I don't believe in God, but I do believe in hope and human spirit. I hope it is good news, but whatever the result, let your spirit triumph.
|By Litre1 on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 04:40 am:|
I'll be praying for Sophie and your family today. Be strong for her and your wife no matter what the outcome.
|By Richandall on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 04:58 am:|
Brad, my thoughts are with your family.
|By Twowheels78 on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 07:42 am:|
Racer, I'll say a prayer for you and your family. Hope to hear some good news in two weeks.
|By Ronnie on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 08:33 am:|
Best of luck Brad.
We all take good health for granted until a spanner gets thrown in the works.
Let us all know the results of the biopsy.
Will be praying for good news.
|By Roscofalco on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 10:34 am:|
My thoughts are with you and your family. Best of luck.
|By Bob on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 10:44 am:|
Best of luck for you, your family and especially your daughter.
|By Brianr on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 11:07 am:|
Im late........but praying
|By Racerxlilbro on Thursday, August 29, 2002 - 05:39 pm:|
I'm truly overwhelmed by all of your support. Totally amazing.
Anyway, surgery went well. Sophie is resting comfortably...hopefully she'll sleep off the anesthetic tonight.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart for all of your thoughts and prayers. I'll be sure to post the results of the biopsy when we get them.
|By Zazutata on Friday, August 30, 2002 - 01:25 pm:|
As a father of 2 and with number 3 on the way I cannot begin to imagine the heartache and worry you must be experiencing. These tiny people are so precious and innocent it seems unjust to inflict anything on them at all. However, I am amazed at their strength and fighting spirit. I hope that little Sophie isn't too sore after the operation. Take care of your special family Brad.
|By Hydropnik on Saturday, August 31, 2002 - 06:50 am:|
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I wake up each morning to see my 6 month old's smiling face. I'm certain you do the same with little Sophie. Take care of your little angel and I hope she heals quickly.
|By Gus8 on Saturday, August 31, 2002 - 10:39 am:|
hope the outcome is good, brad.i`m a little late but thinking of you all anyway.
|By Falcorob on Monday, September 02, 2002 - 02:15 pm:|
Sorry I'm so late Racer but all my best wishes go to you and your family in these trying times.
Children are far stronger and braver than we are, and far more deserving of our love and attention for their beauty and innocence too.
May your God be with you.
P.S. Blue ones are faster.
|By Racerxlilbro on Monday, September 02, 2002 - 08:29 pm:|
Thanks again for all of your thoughtful wishes. It made my wife and me so happy to read all of your comments...
I'll update you all as soon as we know more...
|By Klingon on Tuesday, September 03, 2002 - 12:00 pm:|
Sorry I'm so late too.
I hope everything rules well for Sophie.
I dont use to write because my bad english, but Im here since one year ago reading everything.I feel all of us looks like a family.
This time I feel I need to write, but not only to say that I´ll pray for her ( be sure of that). I want to say that they are going to make a little operation to make a test and if the doctors are there like in Spain they use to make hard test when they think there are a little posibility of somethink like that could happen.
A big kiss for Sophie.
Be strong to support your family and Im sure all of we are waiting to recive good news about her in little time.
|By Biggums on Tuesday, September 03, 2002 - 07:37 pm:|
She is in my prayers tonight...
|By Durangokid on Tuesday, September 10, 2002 - 04:00 pm:|
You and Sophie are still in my prayers.
|By Racerxlilbro on Wednesday, September 11, 2002 - 07:40 am:|
Thanks again for all of your wishes. We are meeting with the neurologist on 9/18 to discuss the results...I'll update you then.
|By Kbomonfalco on Wednesday, September 11, 2002 - 04:01 pm:|
Holly cow! I really need to check in more often. I really wish your family all the best. It just doesn't seem fair at times. The 18th seems so far away. Hang in their and keep the faith. Just remember we're here for you. Hugs to Sophie
|By Exdukenut on Wednesday, September 11, 2002 - 06:13 pm:|
Yes it's long wait till the 18th. Keep your chin up for not only you, but also for the family.........no matter the result.
Us fellow Falconeers' hearts are still with you.
|By Gus8 on Wednesday, September 18, 2002 - 11:59 am:|
Brad, still thinking of you and your family,i really hope it went well today,best wishes to you all.
|By Spoof on Wednesday, September 18, 2002 - 04:00 pm:|
Had you in mind today. Here's hoping for the best.
|By Durangokid on Wednesday, September 18, 2002 - 05:14 pm:|
|By Racerxlilbro on Thursday, September 19, 2002 - 07:09 am:|
Thanks for all of your support! I guess prayer and well wishes work.
Here are the results of the biopsy:
No muscle disease...nada...zilch. No MD, no MS...a few other tests to run to check for normal brain function and some really rare stuff, but it's looking like she has "benign hypotonia" and will likely require lots of Physical Therapy...and maybe some corrective shoes, braces, etc.
Anyway, much love from the family!
|By Twowheels78 on Thursday, September 19, 2002 - 08:38 am:|
