  • From Melanie Sorsdahl

    In March 2015, Jayden was 6 and had fallen ill with what we thought was the flu.  It turned out to be something much more serious called SIADH (Syndrom Of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone Secretion) or Hyponatremia for short.  When he wasn’t improving and was only getting worse, we raced him to the Red Deer ER.  His sodium in his body had crashed to almost nothing, and his brain function and body organs were shutting down.  The Red Deer ER Doctor Hogarth gave him a very strong dose of saline in attempts to help Jayden’s body start to produce it again itself, and then him & the pediatrician on call called the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary.  They determined it would be best for Jayden to continue receiving care there, and that they were sending STARS to get him.

    He is a typical active and healthy 9 year old boy now, who does great in school and loves archery, all thanks to our local hospital, STARS, and the Alberta Children’s Hospital working together as a team. Jayden held a lemonade stand this summer and raised $158.65, then he had the idea to hold a hot chocolate stand for them too.

    We are fortunate that Franco and Ernie at the North Red Deer Save On Foods decided to jump on board and allow is to hold it of front of their store. It will be happening this Saturday, October 6th from 11am ~ 3pm!

    Jayden and his mom helped out with the STARS lottery campaign in Red Deer earlier this year… check out their fantastic work.

    The UnDad turns family life into art

  • Trent Wilkie has been an actor, a writer, a producer, a journalist and a wilderness guide. But the hardest job he’s ever had is being a parent.

    The UnDad Podcast gives the father of two a chance to explore the highs and lows of raising tiny humans, and the bigger topic of family and how it forms us.

    Sometimes he interviews someone about being a parent or what it was like to be a kid; sometimes we get a piece of his endlessly creative mind with original stories and soundscapes; and sometimes we get a window into his home life through cameos by his wife Elizabeth and his children, ages two and four.

    “My biggest influence is my wife,” he says. “She sets me straight and keeps me focused.”

    The UnDad was named best podcast and best family blog in last year’s Best of Edmonton survey. Here’s a bit more about the father of the show:

    Q. What will people get out of listening to your podcast?

    A. It is not only a parenting podcast, it is an art piece. It is more about existing than selling a product. I create, and this is one of my favourite mediums.

    Q. What podcasts do you listen to and why?

    A. I listen to Revisionist History, Reply All, and The Last Podcast On The Left. They are entertaining. It isn’t so much the content, but the way it is served. That is the magic spot.

    Q. What is the most interesting comment you’ve received from a listener?

    A. “My husband was worried about being on your podcast, but I’d like to say thank you. He answered questions that were meaningful, that respected his position in life. You offered him an outlet, that is awesome.”

    Q. Do you have any unusual hobbies or talents that would surprise your listeners?

    A. I have been a canoe guide for 10 years. I’ve written for the CBC, Fangoria, and countless other high-profile publications. I’ve done a lot. It has made me who I am.

    Q. If you could have any guest on your podcast, who would you choose?

    A. I’d like to have Stephen King or Cormac McCarthy.

    Q. Write your own epitaph — what would it say?

    A. ‘Tis a fearful thing to love what death can touch.

    Q. What has been your favourite episode so far?

    A. I like two: the interview with Gaia Willis and one titled I Love The Rain. The interview with Gaia is my bread and butter. Pure journalistic anthropology. The other is an artistic soundscape that I conceptualized on my own and brought to life.
