It's been a while

Hey everyone,

It has been a while, Landon was on holidays last week and my sister was in Banff on a ATA conference, so we weren't updating the blog, sorry.

Well, things started off great, Landon and I were getting lots of things done around the house, Taylor was feeling good, and we headed off to Calgary to go to the zoo...

The zoo was great, seen lots of exciting things...x rated elephant show and all, hee hee. After the zoo we headed off to find a hotel room for the night and a restaurant for supper. We noticed that Taylor had been sleeping an awful lot that day, but otherwise things seemed fairly normal. I started feeling ill after supper and fell asleep early with Taylor...we were party poopers. Taylor woke up around 11pm with a mild fever and was getting cranky. She soon fell back asleep and seemed to cool down a bit, so we went back to sleep. She woke up again around 3am burning up again, so we decided to hit the road and head back to Edmonton, so that we would be there first thing in the morning for them to take a look at her. She never got a real fever until later that day. So, for the next couple of days she was fevering and was feeling yucky, and Landon got whatever she had too...I took her to the Stollery emerg on Thursday night, and they weren't sure what she had, but figured it would work its way out.

So, to say the least, Landon's vacation was a bust - I went out for girls night on Saturday night and he ended up going to Stony Plain emerg to get checked out since he wasn't feeling right. Things seem to be getting back to normal now, Landon is back at work, and we head in for Taylor's next chemo on Wednesday if her counts are good and they have a bed available.

I am busy trying to plan Taylor's first birthday party...September 10th, my little girl turns one! I also go back to work for one day on August 31st to clear my maternity leave, and then I am off on leave again until the end of October, or whenever we know more about Taylor's future and treatment plan.


Mindy, Landon & Taylor
