|Mindy and Taylor getting Pedicures for their trip|
Make-A-Wish came and spoke to Taylor on Monday. They leave for a Disney cruise on Sunday! Super quick. They will head to Bahamas and have two days at DisneyWorld. Wahoo! So to prepare for this Mindy and Taylor went for a pedicure yesterday. I asked Taylor to show me her toes tonight and found out she had taken all the nail polish off as "it was burning" on her toes...LOL but I think they had fun.
Yesterday super sucked for Taylor. She had two failed IV attempts and then was sent down to anesthesia people and they got it on their first poke. They also froze her, which was good. Then she had to go to the Cross Cancer for her CT and mask making for Radiation Therapy. They make a hard plastic mask with little holes in it and it clips into the table, so they have to stay super still as they are mapping for the Radiation Therapy(RT). Then they had a really long wait as the guy ahead of Taylor kept moving, so they had to redo the scans ahead of her...she had to sit with the mask on for 20 minutes, and it was horrible!
During the MRI Mindy held her leg and had her heart break as she said the machine is so loud you can't really talk or anything, and she could see her chest and she was crying off and on. I think Mindy should get a Super Hero Momma badge.
I know so many Mom's and Dad's of kids with these medical problems really deserve huge rounds of applause. I think I would lose my mind.

Taylor met again with Make-A-Wish tonight and was so excited they stopped by to tell us about it and show us all the super thoughtful gifts they gave her: carry on MinnieMouse, Minnie Mouse stuffy, camera, cool drinking cup, sunscreen, etc. She was so tired and so silly! Tomorrow we are going to do a little shopping for her trip, and then they are off on Sunday.
