Belated Happy Mother's Day and other stuff...

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all my mommy friends!!!

OK I'll admit it...I'm a slacker. My mother's day was fabulous! I got a griddle and before anyone gives my hubby grief...I've been asking for it for just about forever. For the record I LOVE IT!!!!!!! I also got 3 inches of hair chopped off and I got it streaked with blonde and red again. We also spent Mother's day with my mommy, so we had a good time.

And now for my LATE Weighty Update for this week:

Starting Weight: 264.4 lbs.
New Weight: 217.8 lbs.
Weight lost this week: 1.4 lb.
Total lost: 46.6 lbs

My body fat% went down again as well!

Thanks for keeping me honest!

I can't promise how much I'll be posting over the next week or so as I'm working on a project at the station for All Children's Hospital (In conjuction with the Children's Miracle Network) for our annual telethon, but I will at least try to keep the Weighty Update going for you all.

Historic Autism Bill Passes BOTH House and Senate in Florida and is now on to Governor Crist!

I received the following email today and wanted to share:

A number of you have called the CARD office to see what we know about the autism bill that passed on Friday. Krystal and I have hesitated to answer questions because we weren't really hearing anything and we weren't sure what to tell you. I spent a few hours this afternoon combing through Google to see what is out there. Here are a few links that will hopefully answer your questions about the bill. It helped me understand a little bit better what has happened.

A fantastic site that seems to have the most information about the autism bill is the site by Floridians for the Future of the Developmentally Disabled.

Watch the historic and emotional speech by the Speaker of the House and the vote in the Florida House that passed Senate Bill 2654. Read the instructions on this page to watch the roughly 10 minutes toward the end of the session where the bill was passed.

FFDDnews discusses the passage of the Senate Bill 2654.

Article "Last Minute Miracle ... Florida Autism Bill Passes ..." from a parent who is thankful that the bill passed.

Panama City News

The News Press (Insurance companies have two years to come up with agreements to cover all children with disabilities or face mandates to serve autism).

There is more out there if you want to search but these links will give you an idea of what happened.

All of you who worked so hard for months and in some cases for years, deserve the thanks of every one who has a family member who has an autism spectrum disorder. A special thanks to the CARD families who called their legislators every time we sent out an alert.
