Meet Stacie! Mama to Lainey and Calvin.  Lainey has a rare genetic disease that can make their day-to-day lives incredibly unpredictable due to the main symptom, recurring attacks of paralysis that can affect one side of the body, the whole body, or even move from side to side. While Lainey’s condition may be rare, the topics in today’s episode are relatable to so many of the families in disabled community.

Topics we talked about that you do not want to miss:

  • At 5 months old Lainey was diagnosed with Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC)
  • Pivoting plans because of episodes
  • Our “talk-tracks” as medical mamas
  • How have challenges affected your marriage?
