For Davasia, everything started with what looked like a common children’s condition. Difficulty breathing sent her and her mother, Melanie, to the hospital for what doctors at first diagnosed as asthma. But after a round of lab tests to see why medications weren’t helping Davasia’s condition, Melanie got the call any mother dreads. She was told to bring Davasia to the emergency room immediately.
Making my own sausage to add to stuffing is something I like to do for Thanksgiving every year not only at home but also for our clients. This is a simple recipe that can be made whether you have a meat grinder or not. The recipe is written assuming you don’t have one, but if you do, simply substitute diced pork, grind it first, and follow the recipe from there.

Don never let anything slow him down. A Cornell College graduate, he spent his early 20s working with the Peace Corps in Honduras, educating rural populations on HIV and AIDS at the height of the 1990s AIDS crisis. He began his teaching career in Honduras, studied for his master’s degree in education while teaching in Detroit Public Schools, and returned home to work at Fairview Elementary, at the time one of the most under-served schools in Denver.
Don never stopped, letting his passion for education commit him to the 60+ hour weeks and high stress that came with his job. As a self-described workaholic, he loved it.
