March 22nd update

Wow, it has been a while since the last update...Leah has really been slacking! Just Kidding, she is finally getting her life in order and getting caught up with work and home priorities since we aren't needing as much support lately. THANK YOU Leah for being the bestest sister EVER!!!

So, here is a little update of what we have been up to. Landon is officially done in Ponoka, for a while anyway, so we have been enjoying our time as a family and working on getting things done around the house. My friend Danielle and baby Benjamin have come out for another sleepover, and Taylor and I have been trying to get some visiting in, since we didn't have to go in for chemo last week. Taylor's counts weren't high enough for chemo so they decided to let us wait until Monday (March 23rd) to come in for her kidney test and chemo, which was a nice little break for us.

We have been trying to feed Taylor solids, but she is resisting the bland food...she thinks that our food would be much better, as if we are trying to feed her poison while we are dining on gourmet, we are going to try bringing the blender out and seeing if she will eat our food - they say the chemo dulls her tastebuds, so she probably prefers stronger tastes...salty and sweet instead of bland. We know she likes the sweet stuff like ice cream, icing, pie filling, whipped cream, pudding, etc. but I don't think we want to give her mouthfuls of that to keep her happy. She also likes gravy and cheese flavoured things like pizza, cheese buns, etc...and LOVED Zenari's pasta and cream sauce (probably because I ate there everyday for lunch while I was pregnant with her). So, we are going to start experimenting...we will let you know how it goes.

Landon has also been working on her video's and has posted some more on the website along with updated pictures.

Thanks again for everyone's support.


Mindy, Landon & Taylor
