t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.



I was reading a message board from parents with children diagnosed with PCD. They sound far sicker than my children. In the hospital constantly. Forever on antibiotics. Maybe I am wrong. Maybe something else is going on. Maybe I should just forget about it and live my life and just let my kids "cough it up" and "blow it out."

Maybe I am just neurotic like all the doctors thought.

Maybe it is just a daily nuisance which will cause no problems during my children's lives.

It seems also, maybe only the most severe cases are diagnosed, and those with organ reversal, because it is a reason to look? I don't know.
