Ongoing therapy, constant worry From page 1 "We had no idea what it was," Galick said, adding that when she first heard the news, "I thought, 'my kids are going to be in wheelchairs.'" That isn't the case, but nothing prepared the new parents for the ongoing physical therapy and constant worry that they deal with every day. "We're learning along the way," she said, adding that, "CF is our new normal." Both of the boys needs eight pills in the morning, and even the process of giving them breakfast is time-consuming as their food must be measured and medications adjusted accordingly. And, when they're healthy, Jaxon and Jayce need two half-hour sessions on special vests which help clear the congestion from their lungs every day. Thanks to advances in research and technology, the vests replace the physical paddling on their chests the boys endured daily. Until recently though, the boys shared one vest, which doubled the amount of time spent on therapy. Galick said the vests have been a re ...

Wednesday, September 7, 2011 * Chatham This Week 15 Pat Hoy refl ects on career as local MP Don Robinet Chatham This Week As MPP Pat Hoy's career comes to an end at Queen's Park, he's looking back with satisfaction at a number of pieces of legislation he helped create, and looking forward to spending time with his wife, Deb and their two young grandchildren. Hoy was first elected in 1995 and was re-elected three times. At Queen's Park, the average stay for an MPP is nine years, so that makes him a veteran of the provincial legislature. As he approaches retirement, Hoy says the decision was the right one to make. "My wife and I talked about retirement a lot," he said. He considered running again, but that would mean another four years of an extremely busy schedule. About half of that time would be spent away from home, either in Toronto, or on the road doing committee work. Turning 61 next month, Hoy decided to retire instead. In the months since his announcement, Hoy said he hasn't had ...

Seen here are, from left: Bill Dodman of Scouts Canada, Barb Lovell of the safety village, Trish MacFarlane of the foundation and Lawrence Ribey of Scouts Canada. Just look at the picture again. It's OK to keep staring at the picture. In fact, we kind of designed the All-New 2012 Passat so you wouldn't have to read ads like this. The sleek sophistication should speak for itself, saying things like, "Not only does it look great, but the spacious, comfortable interior boasts class-leading rear seat legroom* and is full of standard features, like Bluetooth® connectivity and a leather-wrapped steering wheel." So, go ahead and have another look at the picture, or drop by our dealership to see the Passat in person. And while you do, consider t ...

20 Chatham This Week * Wednesday, September 7, 2011 Life is a series of adventures for Chatham native Karen Robinet Chatham This Week No matter what he's doing, Rod Wellington is always planning for and dreaming of his next great adventure. The Chatham native, who now calls Vancouver home, is in Chatham for a visit and undertook a little 'microadventure' on Saturday. Wellington embarked on a walk around the perimeter of Chatham, an adventure he called Go Beyond Your Limits. He encouraged others to join him on parts of, or the entire 55-kilometre walk, which he estimated would take about 12 hours. As part of the walk, he was collecting cash and pledges for Outreach for Hunger, a cause that's close to his heart after enduring some hard times himself. These days, Wellington earns his living from landscape maintenance, although he's hoping to turn what he does best into a career. "I'm starting to move into public motivational speaking next year," and is just putting the finishing touches o ...
