This is a means to allow all friends and family keep connected on how Mindy, Landon and Taylor are doing through Taylor's cancer treatments. It also is a way to sign yourself up to help out in any necessary areas you think you might be able to help.
Well the MRI went on as scheduled. They will probably not know anything for 48 hours. Please continue to send all your wishes, prayers and dreams to Mindy, Landon and Taylor. All my hopes are going to Taylor right now...Hug the ones you love tonight and every night. We never fully understand how precious they are until faced with not having them.
Events unfolded this week a bit unplanned. On Wednesday Landon was sent home as someone "blew up" the plant. So that was great. Mindy has been waiting since Wednesday to get a bed at the hospital as they were all full. She can only be on the Oncology ward when she gets chemo as only a few nurses are trained for that, so its not that all hospital beds were full, just oncology.
Yesterday in the late afternoon, after much frustrated waiting (couldn't do anything, but wait!) they got a bed. Mindy and Taylor should be in the hospital probably until Tuesday when Taylor gets her MRI. Landon should be leaving Tuesday...
Mindy is hoping that they will put Taylors next chemo off a bit so that Landon will be home for the dogs, instead of the regular gong show she preforms. I hope to get up there so I will let you know the details later.
Good news. Mindy and Taylor will be off to see Landon in Ponoka tomorrow. THey have reserved one of the posh hotels out there...at the NEW SUPER 8!!! Wow, hope they get some pictures...LMAO
So maybe next time I am on I can reveal their hot and heavy reunion.LOL Nope don't think that will ever happen.LOL TOO WEIRD! Anyhow I hope they have a great visit. Mindy should be back in to the hospital with Taylor I am thinking on Wednesday and be there until Saturday. So go for a visit or drop her a line....after tomorrow of course.
Hope you all had an amazing Family Day. Me and my kids did our shopping (still searching for a kids size 1 skate for Aaryanna who needs skates and a hockey helmet for school for one hour of skating...sometimes I hate teachers.LOL).We also did a "family" wash Mommies car.LOL
Well I would like to report that Mindy and I had a date. We went for lunch at Moxies followed by the movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic" was lots of fun. I am actually at Mindy's right now. She is trying to get Taylor to sleep. I think she may be a little over tired.LOL Should be fun.
Taylor will more than likely be going in for chemo this week. On the 24th of February she has her next MRI. This means I need to ask for everyone to be sending out positive vibes that day.
Taylor is doing well, but is not having chemo this week as her counts are low. Landon is back in Ponoka. He has to work there for 10 days, but after that he should be back for good! Yeah, I know both of them are really looking forward to being back together. It should make life a lot more manageable.
Not to much is new. Mindy has been out and about a bit this week. She will be going to work to visit tomorrow. We might squeeze a "date" in this weekend and catch a movie.
Landon is home for the weekend. I am thinking he should soon be back home for good, which will be awesome. Taylor has been doing good, but a little fussy. Hopefully Mindy and Landon will get some pictures up of Taylor playing peek-a-boo it is so cute. She actually holds the blanket in her tiny little hands and moves it up and down herself.LOL too bloody cute that girl!
Sorry, I did not get a post up yesterday. Nothing seemed to be wrong with Taylor, so they were released yesterday. Mindy is happy to be home. Landon should be on his way home either tonight or tomorrow.
So there is still no news on Taylor's results. Hopefully tomorrow we will see. She did start eating tonight. She may not have been eating because the bottles they had were different than the ones she is used to. If she does not eat they want to put her on a feeding tube, but that is certainly NOT what Mindy wants as it would probably be more of a hazard as she would pull on it, and be more susceptible to getting an infection. Hopefully with the new bottles she will begin eating. She has not lost any weight s she should be fine. She is still sore and not wanting to be held.
Danielle and Benjamin were by today for a visit and Grandpa Don visited yesterday and should be back up tomorrow. So not sure when they will be getting out. Will keep you posted.
she had to have oxygen today as her her heart was racing and her saturation is around 80. She has been good, but not eating. Mindy also says she pooped a lot today, but not sure what else is wrong. They will not be able to leave until she is eating...I will go up there tomorrow and hopefully have better news to report.
Just had an update from Mindy. Taylor is getting a blood transfusion...and she had a poop. So that is great. She also let Mindy hold her, so Mindy is happy. Mindy also gave her a kiss for me because I asked her to and she SMILED...HA!HA! top that. LOL
Well the bad news is that Taylor is back at the hospital. She is still having the back pain, but she had some blood in her urine and her tummy was distended or really hard. So she was in quickly to be looked at, but were not sure exactly as to what it is. She is being hydrated as she is not eating much, which is probably causing constipation along with the codeine. Her blood work came back funny so they did it again tonight and we will have to see how it comes back.
The good thing is she is still happy and in the best place she can be for care. I will keep you posted. I am not sure how long they will be there yet. We will see.
Mindy and Taylor were over. Taylor seems to being having pain in her back. Does not like to be moved much right now. She also was I guess waking up a lot on Friday-Saturday night/morning, not for any reason, just waking up. All in all she is doing really good and is happy. My mom went to stay with them last night after they left my house. Grandpa Don is supposed to go out for a visit today.
