This is Brandon. Brandon is 7 years old, and is a funny, smart, determined little boy. Brandon loves firefighters, truck, boats, planes, and pretty much anything with a motor in it. Brandon is going into grade 3 and is thriving at school. Brandon also has a mitochondrial disease - complex 1 deficiency/Mitochondrial encephalomyopathy - the neurodegenerative form of the disease. In spite of all he has had to overcome Brandon almost always has a smile on his face, and just lights up our lives.
This is Tyler. Tyler is 5, and loves pretty much all the same things as his brother - firefighters, trucks, boats, planes, etc... Tyler is a fantastic little brother, and an all around bright, funny and adorable little boy. He gives me plenty of funny fodder to blog about, and keeps us all laughing even when things are tough.
