Merry Christmas or Season's Greetings!

Not much new at this point. Taylor is doing well, I get to see her tomorrow. It has been a very eventful year, so much has happened. We have progressed throughout the year beyond where I sometimes thought we would be. The beginning of the year was a hard year. Taylor already had her first surgery, followed by a few others due to the broviac, etc. Chemo was wearing us all down and it was very sad seeing Taylor so sick, Mindy exhausted and Landon stressed...we managed to pull everything together to an extent after Landon returned home from working out of town(seemed a bit easier with a second parent on the scene). taylor seemed to take Chemo much better(still sick, but not as bad) and we all started to learn more.

We had the Kids with Cancer Walk, Taylor's first vacation to Kelowna, so many firsts happened this year.

I just want to thank all of you for the ongoing support. We all could not make it through this without all of your kindness, prayers, hopes and wishes! I hope you all have an amazing holiday! Soon hopefully we can celebrate Taylor's end to radiation and later Cancer Free! God Bless, please don't stop praying, wishing and hoping for Taylor our miracle child!

long time no update

Well Taylor had a bit of a flu last week. She was pretty sick and not her regular self at all until of course she saw me on Saturday.LOL She has been throwing up in the mornings, which has become alarming, so today they were to give her an emergency MRI; however MRI machine was down so she had a CT scan instead. They were worried her blood vessels were enlarging (I think, but we have no idea what that means). Anyhow all was found to be normal. They figure that she probably is throwing up (only early am) because of the anesthetic she has been getting daily and it is a build up from all of that. I pray this radiation will be done soon and Taylor can have the rest of her life to enjoy! Please continue to pray for our girl...she is such a blessing full of smiles.

I got to hang out with the Thiessen's on Saturday. The kids had tons of fun, booty shaking. Taylor goes and pushes buttons on the stereo when she doesn't like a song.LOL She sings some words or la,la,la to Rihanna's song Hard. very cut!

Taylor is chugging away

Well Taylor has been doing wonderfully. SHe is happy and moving around like crazy. She loved the Snowflake Gala...I guess she liked the kid martini/dance lounge area the best where she could get down and shake her little booty!

Yesterday was Enbridge's Kids party at WEM Galaxyland. Taylor had a blast and was totally wired. She only got a 1 1/2 nap in through the day, so she apparently slept in today until 1oam with Mindy.LOL She is so silly. Landon tried to get her to do another Santa picture, but she would have none of that! I will post her Santa picture she took with Grandpa Don and Grandma Roberta. Taylor will hopefully be finished Radiation on December 30th.

Taylor is doing great!

Just a quick update on Taylor. She is doing excellent. The only real set back from radiation seems to be her tiredness, but that is nothing! She was evaluated the other day to check her development. Apparently she knows 22 words, and is above the average...imagine what she would have been doing if she had her whole brain.LOL Kidding. She is so amazing!

She is so funny she says so clearly "Mommy" and "My Mommy" she reminds me of the little italian boy in "Life is Beautiful" the way she says it. She still call Landon "Nanny", but can also say "Daddy".

She absolutely LOVES the stairs. She likes to go up and down. We took her to Sherwood Park Mall on Saturday and she rode the big Clifford ride, which she loved and cried when she was taken off.LOL Kids!

This week Landon, Mindy and Taylor are off to the "Snowflake Gala", which I am sure will be tons of fun! We all cannot wait for Enbridge's Kids Party at Galaxyland. This will be her first time enjoying the fun, which I am sure will blow her mind.LOL
