There’s no easy way to put this, but the truth is: bad things happen to good people!
My friend, Z. Taylor Shultz is a son, father, colleague, and loving husband. He’s completely Texan and to use the words of his wife, “just the nicest guy you could ever, ever meet.” Period.
So – why? Why did this terrible “accident” happen to Taylor? To those around him who work with him, who went to school with him, and who love him? Why?
Rather than really try to figure out the WHY?, let’s accept that it DID and do something about it. Something as simple as give “Twenty Bucks For Taylor!”
There is so much expense involved when something like this happens to a family.
Melissa, Taylor’s rock and one true love, might need a break while getting settled in her new little home sweet home in Dallas. If Melissa even begins to dream about leaving home, she must find someone to “just be” with Taylor. In order to hire in help, there is a $20 gap in coverage financially for Taylor’s care. Twenty Bucks for Taylor is the answer and YOU can help be a part of the solution!
Having a lot of friends (like any friends of Melissa & Taylor certainly do) has to pay off somehow. There has to be something more we can do. Together! Twenty bucks, that’s all we’re asking!

Welcome Home, Taylor!
The bad news first, and I know this belongs on my medical blog, but…
I had a colonoscopy today. Literally in desperate need of getting to the root of the problem, I moved it UP from 6/20 to 6/13 without a care in the world that this meant I’d have my first, at 37, on Friday the 13th! The prep was as gross as they all said it would be, even tho Dad made some pretty fantastic multi-colored (ok, yellow & green!) jello servings, but in the end not too bad, but not something I’d like to do again in a month or in five years. All test results will be available next Friday.
The best news: Taylor came home today!
For those of you who do not know or have not heard, fab clients turned dear friends, complete with cute kids, moved to Texas and all Texas-sized hell broke loose. Literally. Taylor (the dad & husband, read man of Melissa’s dreams!) was in a horrible car accident while working on Friday the 13th (of September, 2013) and that cute Shultz family hasn’t been the same since. Fast-forward nine months and BAM! Taylor came home today by way of nothing short of a miracle! You can follow Taylor’s story of success here on Caring Bridge. Anything you can do to help “Twenty Bucks for Taylor” would be hugely appreciated!
Welcome Home, Taylor!
One of my cutest little clients, Chloe, uses Do More with LES as a chauffeur service from after school care to home for snack and homework fun! She just might have mentioned that she had a loose tooth and wanted an apple for snack last week.
I asked her to show me this tooth and she proudly showed off how it was hanging by a thread, its replacement already fully grown up and in. I sliced the apple in half and we each had a wedge in hand as I showed her how best to take big bites out of the loose tooth side of the mouth and we’d get it easily! No luck!
“Let’s go upstairs and look at it in the mirror,” she exclaimed. “OK,” I thought, “great, I’ll grab a dry paper towel and your water bottle!” And off we went.
I had that poor cute Chloe admiring herself one minute and in a headlock the next! She was just the right height for me to get a hold on her….and her tooth!
The rest, as they say, is history! A picture of the bloody smile and the cute little tooth (with a lot of root!) shows it all.
a toothLES smile!
The next day was our last together, so I took Toothless Chloe out for Baskin-Robbins after school. “Shhh, don’t tell my parents, but can you get me the big waffle cone? The one with the chocolate and the sprinkles already on it?” Sure!
I love my job!
