About Hemophilia...

Hemophilia is a rare genetic bleeding disorder in which the blood does not clot normally. Persons with hemophilia are missing or have a low level of a protein needed for normal blood clotting. About 18,000 people in the United States are known to have hemophilia. Hemophilia usually only occurs in males, except for rare exceptions. A person with severe hemophilia means that they have less than one percent clotting factor in their system.

New Year New Beginnings

Dwight has settled back into his old room again getting organized once more between work days. Snow days give him a chance to work on his truck, do stuff out in the workshop, or discuss guy stuff like truck/car parts and camping with a fellow neighbor.

Over Christmas, Dwight spent several days out in Nashville with his sister and family. While running around with the guys checking out after Christmas sales, Dwight found a great deal on a 1950 Remenington semi-automatic 12 GA shotgun, which he bought. He went to a shooting range with Randy, his brother-in-law, visited Tigg one day (who also has hemophilia), and tried his hand at shooting clay pigeons. After ringing in the New Year in the big city, Dwight finally came back home to slower life on the mountain.
