Reggie at home behind his new desk!

A neighbor of mine mentioned on a neighborhood website that she had a free table to anyone who could use it. When i saw the photo, i knew it would be perfect for Reggie!

And, as you can see from photo below, he seems to enjoy it very much.

Many thanks to Allison Mahlstedt for her compassion and generosity.

“Allison, thank you again for your wonderful gift of the table. Because of you, Reggie Bibbs has an office desk that he can feel proud of everytime he sits down behind it! Since I can’t post photos on the neighborhood website, i have posted them on Reggie’s neurofibromatosis website so you can see for yourself. Thank you, again! You are an angel!”

A word from Reggie Bibbs

“Being Positive is a choice. I choose to be positive even when things are not as good as I want them to be. We can speak it into existence. I can say, my glass is almost empty or my glass is almost full. Talking about the positive, bring positives results. ”

It takes Reggie 25 minutes a day…

…just to put on his pants!

I was chatting with Reggie this morning and asked him what he was doing. He said, “I’m sewing my pants.” Of course, I asked, “Why?” He said that the tumors in his leg have grown so much that he has to sew his pants on as his leg is too large to put his leg through.

Which is understandable for anyone who has seen Reggie’s leg But here’s the part you didn’t know…when Reggie buys pants, he needs to buy two pair so that he can cut the left left off from the second pair and sew it onto the first pair so that he has a left pant leg that is double in size.

Can you imagine having to do this every day just to put on your pants?  I sure can’t! If anyone has any solutions to this problem, we’d love to hear them. I’m afraid Reggie’s leg is going to continue to grow and grow until surgery, medicine or life catches up.

Whenever Reggie needs new pants, we head down to the neighborhood Fiesta Store because it’s close by and they sell the brand of pants that fit Reggie the best, Dickey’s work pants.

Never bought clothes in a grocery store before but, in this case, it works well for all.

Thanks to Reggie’s experience working for Goodwill, he learned a lot of skills including upholstery repair where he quickly learned how to work a needle and thread.

Never once have I heard Reggie complain about living with neurofibromatosis and all the challenges that it presents. Never. I’ll tell you right now to the entire world, Reggie is a much better person than I am, that is without a doubt!
