Taylor Update Sunday January 30th, 2011

Well I have been racing around doing all of a number of things, so have not been the best blogger. Taylor is actually doing very amazing, although she has been battling colds, and ear infections, but those are fairly "normal" kid stuff.

After Taylor's trip to Disneyland she became hooked on Toy Story. She has all three shows and can watch them all day long...she wakes up demanding "woody", comes home "woody" get my drift. Taylor is also doing a fabulous job talking and can parrot really well. I joked that when I babysat her to my husband that maybe I could teach her some "choice" phrases she could stun Mindy and Landon with, but thought better of such a silly idea.

Taylor has another MRI February 8th with the results being gone over on the 17th. Please make sure to keep Taylor in your prayers, send her wishes and hopes, these are such amazingly hard days waiting to find out what happens next.

St. Valentine's Day Hair Massacure!

So Landon and I have decided to help raise funds and awareness for the St. Valentines Day Hair Massacure this year. We have both died our hair HOT PINK and are collecting online pledges and/or cash/cheque pledges in person. If you would like to learn more about the Hair Massacure or donate to the cause - please go to You can pledge a participant and look up our team " A Wish for Taylor" or search for Landon or Miranda Thiessen to see our pages.

It has been quite a while since the last post as there hasn't been much to report on the medical side of things. Taylor had a wonderful Christmas with Family and Friends, has been growing so fast. She is in love with Toy Story (1, 2 & 3) and asks to watch "Woody" first thing in the morning, all day, and all night if it isn't on already. She has been talking up a storm learning new words daily and picking things up so quickly that we really have to watch what we say around her, since she repeats almost everything.

Her next MRI is on February 8th, with our results meeting scheduled for February 17th...but as usual, hopefully we get some news before then, as it is too long to wait! She has been going in for her other checkups and tests regularly, and they continue to be amazed by how unaffected she seems to be by everything she has been through - a true blessing!

Things are finally starting to slow down a bit from all of the excitement of the trip and Christmas, and with all of the snow we have had and the colds and flu bugs that have been going around, it feels as if we haven't had a moment to catch our hopefully we will be able to actually start visiting some of you that haven't seen us in a while!

Hopefully we will get some time to post some updates on here soon...but just for those of you who wanted a sneak you know :)

Mindy, Landon & Taylor
