MM: Peter Schilling - Major Tom

I listened to this song from 1983 to 1984 every morning before i went to school and was disappointed as the radio station suddenly didn't play it anymore (later i got to know that it was because the song dropped out of the TOP TEN list ;) ).

The song is called Major Tom from Peter Schilling and it's about the major of a space ship.

Happy Music Monday!

MM: David Hasselhoff - Looking for Freedom

20 years ago this was my favorite song from David Hasselhoff - Looking for Freedom. At that time David Hasselhoff had his glorious time with the series "K.I.T.T." - the intelligent, speaking car. Afterwards Hasselhoff was one of the main actor beside Pamela Anderson in "Baywatch". In the last few years he was more often mentioned in the news because of his alcohol problems than of his former success in the music or movie scenes.

MM: John Farnham - You're the voice

This is John Farnham's famous song - You're the voice - from 1986. Was exactly my time when i 've been 10 years old (but didn't understand English yet). It's just the melody of the music that makes me feel good every time i listen to that song. After i learned English, i understood additionally the message of his song:

Be yourself, stand up and show that You're the voice ;)

Video about EEC syndrome

This video contains the most important issues persons are facing who "suffer" from the EEC syndrome (Ectrodactyly-ectodermal-dysplasia-cleft-Syndrome). The video is presented by the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias (NFED).

At the moment we don't see such severe problems like many of these kids in the video but it will take another year to fully recognize the different problems which he might face in the future:
  • Hair growth
  • missing teeth (at the moment it could be that two teeth are missing as they didn't grow yet but should have been there already)
  • growth (at the lower level for its age group)
The problems that we are facing is less his hands and fingers as most persons don't recognize them because you usually look in the face of a baby ;)
It will be more about finding the right doctors and get an appropriate treatment for all the "problems" that might come. And the time it will take to heal his wounds as he is an active boy who likes to crawl, walk and clap his hands.

Information about the EEC-Syndrome of our son

Operation SmileImage via Wikipedia

We wanted to share some information about the EEC-Syndrome (Ectrodactyly-ectodermal-dysplasia-cleft-Syndrome) of our son as there is a high possibility that he might have this kind of genetic disorder.

I bet you know some persons who "suffer" from the same condition. Mainly these are the persons with cleft lips/palate which gets to be operated while they are babies or young toddlers.

Timmy doesn't have the cleft lips but he has only nine fingers and they are split in the middle (imagine a lobster's claw).

As we will go back to Germany in a few weeks, we have to make several decisions on who shall perform the surgeries and if we should perform the surgeries as there are always risks for such small babies.
The information about the surgery which we got from the Hospital in Kuala Lumpur looks like this:
  • several hours for each operation
  • at least 2 or 3 operations for each hand
  • healing process takes several weeks
We will publish tomorrow a video from one of the biggest EEC-Syndrome self-help groups in America.

There you can see how the kids hands, mouth and feet will look like before the surgery, after the surgery and during the healing process.

(Just saw that Jessica Simpson seems to be an ambassador for Kids with cleft lips and palate. She is supporting "Operation Smile" a foundation who provides free surgeries for those kids.)

MM: Bobby McFerrin - Spontaneous Inventions (Improvisation with the audience)

What happens when a singer includes the audience and asked them to give a word or to take part in his improvisations.

A fantastic Bobby McFerrin (he sang in 1988 the Number 1 Billboard hit "Don't worry, be happy") and his Spontaneous Inventions! You won't regret watching it even our baby Timmy liked it!
