    Did anyone else see this tonight?

    I swear I am in tears right now for this poor little girl who had to keep going thru surgeries, likely for the rest of her life.

    I thought about my pain and illness and it is nothing.......nothing compared to the pain this wee babe experiences constantly.

    While I hate the fact that I saw it, somehow, it made me realize that what I have is bearable.....I don't think if I remember this show that I will ever complain about pain or fatigue again. I will just deal with it as best I can without a word. :(

    I saw the show on TLC about the boy whose skin fell off who lived in the UK. His name was Jonny Kennedy (not sure about the spelling). It was a really sad show and in the end he died before the documentary was over. He was in his 30's.

    If I can remember I'll check on the Discovery Channel to see if it comes back on. I wanted to watch the Rock Star: INXS show at 9 PM on CBS.

    I could have taped the other show though.

    Hugs,

    It's gonna be another sleepless night for me so here I am on the boards instead of in bed.

    Yes ceili, I did see the last half hour of it and I must tell you that I was reduced to tears.

    I was amazed at what these parents had to go through , their strength and courage should be an inspiration to all.

    I too felt as you do. I thank God everyday that I have what I have and not something so much worse than this.

    I guess we do have something to be thankful for.
