What's this?

A box carrying a mysterious object came to us today... Something she has been working on at Purdue during summer. BTW, it is not a piece of chocolate.

School Open House 2018

Senior vs Freshman?

Back to school

It is hard to believe that this will be BT's last school year in Mason, and the most challenging one as well.

Remember My Friends!

The summer program is almost over, BT seems a little sentimental about it. She sent me a couple of photos and introduced her best friends to me, the states where they came from, and spelled their names one by one and demonstrated how to pronounce them in a sound file. I was really touched by her sweet loving heart.

I got them. I will call their names and say hello if I meet them when I come to pick you up --WEDNESDAY!!!

Stem Cell Therapy

I was so excited to find this in my mailbox! Stem Cell!! I knew it is something BT has been fascinated about and I would definitely grasp this opportunity to learn vicariously :)

So Tuesday evening I was sitting in a local clinic, together with a group of senior people, mostly in their seventies. The doctor started the meeting with an introduction to the stem cells and their definition, origin, and classification, as well as the applications of these cells in regenerative therapies, his practice in this field, and concluded with some successful stories from his patients. The seminar was not long, a little more than one hour; the venue was not grand and the audience was not large or extremely energetic but I really enjoyed it.
Here's what I have gathered:

Stem cells can replicate or regenerate every 28 hours for approximately 65 generations during the first 90 days.

Use of stem cells for these major diseases include:
Parkinson's Disease
Alzheimer's Disease
Type-2 Diabetes
Kidney Disease
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Cardiovascular Disease
Spinal Cord Injuries
Sport injuries and rotate cuff tears

There're four types of Stem Cell Therapies

1) Fetal/Embryonic Stem Cell Therapies
2) Amniotic Fluid Stem Cell Therapies
3) Autologous/Your Own Stem Cell Therapies
4) HUCT (Human Umbilical Cord Therapy)

Dr. Baker's started this Stem Cell Therapy practice about one year ago; his clinic is using HUCT stem cells, which is from a laboratory in California. When his patient needs the stem cells, he would order it online and get the shipment from California in an insulated dry ice container.

Dr. Baker has many patients who have started this therapy and the results are very positive - pain reduce about 95%. Patients need to have a consultation with X-ray tests for evaluation. If they are good candidates, they need to have 10 cc blood drawn. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) would be obtained from the blood and mixed with stem cells -- it makes the therapy more effective.

A patient, who had the therapy after suffering from severe shoulder and hip pain, said:"I was skeptical, but I trusted Dr. Baker, and I thought I would give it a try instead of taking pills all the time. After I had the injections of stem cells, the pain went away. So right now, I can say that I'm 100% pain-free. It's been three weeks now."
Isn't it amazing?!

I sent what I have learned and all my notes to BT immediately when I got home. Can't stop smiling the next day :)



I'm not a fan of Snapchat or any social media site. I think they have created too much distractions for kids. But since BT left home for the summer program I found my feelings toward it has somewhat changed... because of ALL of these!!!

Have Fun!

I'm so grateful that she shared this fun video with me...
