"Prepare for glory!"

Some things simply require a ridiculous photoshop.

Tomorrow we fly to Ohio. Bertrand will see a team of neurologists at Cleveland Clinic whose areas of expertise range from epilepsy to neurogenetic/metabolic disorders to movement disorders. Going into this, we know that there won't be any answers or diagnoses or cures. At best we'll get a stopgap treatment for some of his seizures.

In 2007, the year Bertrand was born, the movie "300" was released. It was based on the tale of the Spartan king, Leonidas, who fought with 300 men to stall a Persian invasion of Greece. Knowing there was no chance of surrender, retreat or even victory, they fought anyway.

So do we.
