A HUGE reminder that today — all day — Buffalo Wing Factory is holding their fundraiser for Ryan. This will take place at all five northern Virginia locations. Proceeds from sales will go directly to Ryan’s Special Needs Trust Fund. You can view the menu by clicking here (it will open in a separate window).
Blog Upgrade on Tuesday
On this upcoming Tuesday, April 26th, there might be some/complete interruption to the blog. WordPress (this blog’s platform) is providing greater functionality. They tell me it will be transparent to you, the readers, but I thought it might be wise to give a heads-up. Basically, if I am not able to post I want you to know nothing is wrong. If I need to get urgent information out to you, I’ll use FaceBook.
From what I understand, I will have the ability to directly embed video into the posts and add “plug-ins”, such as polls and other neat gadgets. I’m looking forward to seeing what it can deliver.
Ken vs. Pollen
I’m losing my battle against pollen at Ryan’s expense. His days are great. His nights are on-and-off coughing fits. Here is what we’ve done so far:
- Changed all furnace filters (we use the high-efficiency ones).
- Keep HVAC fan running 24/7
- Use air purifiers on the main level.
- Have all the plants in the areas Ryan occupies.
- Vacuum daily
- Moisten Ryan’s throat with a saline nebulizer
- Change clothes upon entering the house
Our next step is to get at least one of those “Roomba” vacuums and let it run as much as possible, stopping only to recharge. We’ll buy one later next week, after Sue returns from business and visiting IBRF.
