PIC Line is in

Well Taylor and Mindy were up at the crack of Dawn so they could get Taylor's surgery to put in the Pic line for the upcoming radiation. Everything went well other than the anesthesiologist being 2 hours late! It sucks as she can't eat or drink, which she does not understand, so Mindy had to listen to her asking for "watey", juice, etc. Poor thing. Surgery went well and they were out by early afternoon. Taylor got to visit with all her friends at the day home, which made her happy.

Apparently she managed to get a slurpee and chips out of Mindy for her tough day. LOL So tomorrow she will go in for a dressing change. Many more events are upcoming, but I can't think of them off the top of my head. I am sitting here doing my kids homework and trying to update...ahh the joy of multi tasking!

Found out who the Child life people are. They are the ones who do the beads of the journey with cancer, help kids adjust to upcoming treatments, explaining what they are. Helping to train for care and different methods of coping, etc....obviously some very super people!

We all had a terrific Thanksgiving. Yesterday Mindy came over and we hit the mall quickly, went for a walk to play at the park followed by lunch at McDonald's (with a play park of course) and lovely pumpkin pie blizzards at DQ. So much fun

Thanks Kathy, We always keep very positive about all of this. How are all of you doing. I read about Johnny and Mom also kept me posted on how he was doing. Such a terribly cruel world at times. I am sure Johnny had a special purpose as he sounded like a loving and caring boy with lots of fun bursting from him. Maybe he needed to cheer up heaven. You are all in my thoughts and prayers as well.
