Joan and newborn Casey 1995

I was small when I was born. I have a bunny doll, and it has the outfit I wore. I was a really cute baby. I couldn’t eat or swallow because my muscles were weak. The doctors installed a G tube. It was also hard for me to get around because my arms and leg muscles are weak. I cried a lot. I wasn’t able to talk, but my mom and dad taught me sign language. My mom was a violinist, and my dad was a great clarinetist and saxophone player. I would hit the piano with one finger, but I could not even make a sound. I kept trying and began to make sounds on the piano, and it felt happy. When I started school, I was scared, and I told my mom. She told me it was ok because starting school is scary. I went to Carmel Del Mar, and there was homework. I had aides to help me. The kids and teachers were nice. I saw a boy I liked. I took piano lessons. I had a golden retriever named Charlie, and I loved him. I always liked Disneyland. I had a lot of activities. For example, I was in a play, our school had a fun music class, and we learned to sing and dance in a play called “Stone Soup”, which was about the gold rush and America. I learned to play bells in the band. I took horseback riding lessons, and dancing lessons.
