Dave Pittman on American Idol

I just came home from the library...the librarian shared with me that a young man on American Idol last night..had tourettes. I had taped last nights show and hadn't watched it yet. So, for any of you who didn't see it....I'm sharing it with you. This, of course, is touching to me...because of Sam having tourettes. What an amazing performance...I am so thrilled for his opportunity to share with people...his abilities and his story. I can't wait to see how he does...I hope and pray he does well. It would be nice for America to see someone with Tourettes to make it "big" on TV...:) Hugs to all of you....Love, Jerelene...PS Be sure and scroll to the bottom of my page and turn my playlist off so that you can here it better :)

I saw that, Jerelene, and I thought of you and Sam. And I was so hoping they would say yes to him!
That clearing of the throat thing, and that sort of grunting he does, that's exactly what I have. And the facial grimaces and tics too, although it's more the throat thing with me.
It's funny because it wasn't bad at all these past few months for me, but now it's back with a vengeance! That's the way it goes with me. And I notice it's worse at night for some reason.

Anyway, I was so glad they were nice to him and respectful to him on American Idol.

Take care, sweetie!
Love to you,
Eileen

I went back here to double check and my comment is not here, so I will try again (wonder if I forgot to do word verification?).

Hi Jerelene, That young man was amazing. I want to say I love your blog. Also, thank you so much for the books you shared in the last post. what a great way to learn about history and medicine. Your prayer shawl looks like it will turn out beautiful.Thank you for your kind comments and concern for Charli and me. It looks like she is on the mend and already back to her old antics :>) Your little dog is adorable!

millions of people watch this show and when I saw him I thought of Sam! I know that one day Sam will make a difference like this young man. And hopefully someone will see this, and when they see Sam they will think twice before they make fun of him... I am so glad they choose him and I hope he goes all the way past Hollywood!
