    Hi, it’s late night and I’m wandering on the internet, I was on Perez Hilton (of all places) and saw your comments and your website and was curious.
    I’m single and don’t have kids, but I just wanted to congratulate you about getting this out, I had no idea about this condition and now with this knolwedge maybe I can one day help a friend or family member if their baby has these symptoms. Thanks again for getting this out! Good luck and your boy is adorable!

  2. Heidi Ferrer says:

    Hi Nuria!

    Thank you so much for finding GtoM and reading about Bex! I so appreciate your comment, I am new at this website stuff. And there is a very good chance that you WILL help a baby or child with scoliosis someday! I’ve seen it happen many times when the word is spread- it is an incredible feeling to be a part of it.

    I love http://www.perezhilton.com – Perez posted about ISOP, the charity who helped save Bexon in his Worthy Causes, and he always mentions Shriners and the Justin Timberlake Open and concert JT does to raise money for the amazing Shriners hospitals. He really has a big heart.

    XOXO- Heidi

    I know u relapsed. I’ve never relapsed because I’ve never admitted that I’m an alcoholic. But if I did I would have to admit today that I’m an alcoholic. Both my husband and my daughter r gone.

      I’m going to send you a private email, Valerie. It’s a disease and it tries to kill you by taking away everything eventually, especially your family and friends. There is a ton of help. AA meetings are not scary at all, they’re awesome. There is also an online group called Booze Free Brigade. It’s private so you have to send an email and they’ll let you join. A lot of people there are just quitting drinking or thinking about it. It’s very welcoming and it’s a safe place to talk online to others with similar situations.

    Hello,

    My name is Virginia McConnell and, like you, I am a Mom. But that’s not all I am….I am an advanced Emotional Freedom Techniques Practitioner, a Certified Professional Hypnotist, and a Weight Release Coach. In this day and age, Moms carry a heavy load resulting in stress and other negative emotions. I have co-authored a book with Pamela Thompson called READY SET TAP FOR MOMS. It shows you how to quickly and easily collapse the negative emotions surrounding Motherhood. We tested the book with a dozen Moms and they all loved it.

    We are excited to be listed on amazon.com . Our book is also available as a Kindle. We would love to send you a complimentary copy so you can see for yourself how well this process works. Please email me with your address if you would like a complimentary copy of our book.

    Thank you,

    Virginia McConnell

  14. I found your site through the Bloggess and am glad I did.

    Thank you for your honest series of posts during December. These have made me pause to examine my own drinking habits. It’s oftentimes too easy to say, “Meh…I’ll think about it tomorrow. There’s too much going on and I’m too stressed to think about it right now, and I will REALLY want that glass of wine when I get home.”

    Maybe I just really need to think about it today. :) Do I have a problem? I don’t know, but if I can’t answer that with a definitive, “NO,” then perhaps it is something I should look at. :) Because, you know, I REALLY like my wine.

    Hi,

    I’ve been reading your blog for a year now, and I have a question.

    How do you choose a rehab center? It really seems like some are all about selling.

    Thanks,

    Cat

    • Heidi Ferrer says:

      Hi Cat,

      Yes, good question. I’m afraid to tell you that I had a good/bad experience. Are you in Los Angeles? While the place I stayed was very lovely and I loved a lot of the people who were special to me, my rehab closed own shortly after I left. There was a scandal about money behind the scenes, luckily I was not stolen from to my knowledge. So I would be careful to get references, I’m sure there are good places out there. I found mine through my first AA sponsor who is still working with the company and is no longer my sponsor. I will say AT THE TIME, it may have saved my life. With what i know now, I would not go there, does that make any sense?

      Listen though, rehab is a temporary band-aid in a crisis. That’s what it’s for. You can do outpatient rehab as well, or sober living. AA is the last house on the block and it is a beautiful house.

    Hello!

    Hey there! I am a lead singer of a soul band called “Abby Wren & What It Is”. We need t-shirts so bad. We don’t want any old stupid shirt. We also are poor. ha!! Let me know if you are interested and how much it would cost. I was wondering if you would make a sketch of myself and my band members OR have an idea for a band t-shirt design? I really want us to have a shirt like this. Great work!!

    I love that you are doing what you love!!!

    Never-mind. I am an idiot! I thought you made the E Cards as well. I do love your blog though. You can erase these messages. I won’t be offended. HA!! ;)

    • Heidi Ferrer says:

      Oh, ha! No problem, I love your comments and thanks for visiting! The E Cards are from Some E Cards but the jokes are written by me, and you can make your own t-shirts at Zazzle.com! XOXO

    Heidi,

    Your story blew me away.What a angel you are. I’m blessed to have crossed your path. Doug

  19. Susan Phillips says:

    I think if we knew each other in the real world, we would be best friends. I love your slant on motherhood and I anxiously await your pins on Pinterest. I’m not a stalker, I just think we would click–and possibly scare people to some degree. I wish that blogging was a thing when my kids were young–the stories I would have shared! My kids are grown (22) and nearly-grown (18). I have spent most of the last 8 years wearing a paper bag on my head when I am in the presence of my sons (I have come up with some very interesting ones). Enjoy your son while he thinks you are the “Goddess of the World,” all to soon their peers make them think you are massively “uncool.” Somehow I suspect you will be the mom whose home will become the gathering place. Stock up on chips.

    • Heidi Ferrer says:

      Susan, I love you! Yes, sadly I do sometimes scare some people in the real world and on the Internet. You always ruffles some feathers if you have an opinion or different outlook in life, I’m deciding I’d rather be my authentic self and let the right people like me. Thank you so much. :-)

    Heidi,
    After all this time communicating with you on twitter, I had no idea about your son Bexon. During the reading of his story and up until the time you found Shriner’s , I kept thinking that you should bring him here to Dallas’ Scottish Rite Hospital for children.
    They are world reknown for treating orthopedic problems in children, whether they are congenital or traumatic. Like Shriner’s they are funded by the Masons and also like Shriner’s, they ask for no payment.
    It’s a wonderful facility and staff that I personally have had the good fortune to be involved with.
    I’m so glad that Bexon is doing well and very happy that you were persistent in your pursuits of finding the right treatment for him. So many times, people take a doctor’s word as the gospel. No matter how good a reputation a physician has, there are always other ways to treat any particular malady. There is no such thing as a template that fits every patient. That is particularly true when dealing with children. They are a moving target in which things happen quickly; be they positive or negative.
    I apologize for writing such a long narrative . However, this a subject for which I have a great deal of passion. God bless Bexon and God bless you and your husband for being persistent and finding the right answers.

    Best Regards,
    Hal Board

    • Heidi Ferrer says:

      Hal,

      Thank you so much for your comment- yes, I know of Texas Scottish Rite hospital and I have friends who go there with their children with Progressive Infantile Scoliosis! You are right on with your advice, they’re a wonderful hospital. I greatly appreciate your kind words.

      XOXO

      • Becca Thompson says:

        Heidi,

        Thank you so much for your blog and your inspirational story. My son is 19 months old and we were blessed with an early diagnosis of both a tethered cord and cogenital scoliosis. We had the tethered cord release this past March and it was an amazing success. As for his scoliosis, he has both a thoracic hemi-vertebrae and a couple of fusions. Thankfully, after MRIs, we were able to verify that his organs are healthy! Like you, everyone wants us to wait and see. And though I understand why casting can’t fix a missing bone, I completely rebel against the idea of waiting for my son to deteriorate. After several requests I was able to have him ok’d for physical therapy. And though the orthos continue to say that it won’t help, it has helped with both his symmetry and his muscle development. We have seen a 10% reduction in curvature with his last xrays. If you have come across any resources who might be able to help our proactive fight against my son’s scoliosis, I would very much appreciate any help you could share.

        Thanks,
        Becca

        • Heidi Ferrer says:

          Becca,

          Thank you so much, you are doing the right thing to think outside the box and search for the right answers for your baby! Doctors don’t know everything and some are trapped in old and outdated opinions. I would suggest joining Facebook groups like Infantile Scoliosis, Early Onset Scoliosis & Mehta Casting, Progressive Infantile Scoliosis and Treating Scoliosis in Babies, Toddlers and Teens. Parents are very active in giving advice based on their personal experience on those groups. Also, I’m sure there are groups solely for Congentital Scoliosis that I’m not aware of. I don’t know where we would be without the help of other parents online in our journey. Much love to you!

          Heidi
