Looking very forward to tomorrow though! Kara's "wish friends" are coming!

My daughter was 1 when her port was placed. She used to fight accessing but got better with time. We also used numbing cream. Since her port has been removed, she has had normal blood draws. She is 6 now and she sits there and lets them do it with no fighting.

I'm sure at first it will be uncomfortable but she will get 'used' to it.

@angelsmomma, Brook is doing great, her fever is gone, she ran one into friday night but has not had one since, Thank the Lord-Faith, is works wonders!
She will go for a recheck the Monday before we leave, the doctor told me that she felt sure that everything will be a go, but just wants to check her before we travel to Florida. I do not know if they will want to do blood work or not since her labs was good 3 days before she had her fever, I guess we will see.
She has allergies too,, she sneezes alot but they do not want to give her anything like Allegra because of her liver, so she takes Benedryl as needed.

Thanks for the prayers!!

So fun to see and share in everyone's excitement! We did a countdown chain yesterday, 63 days until we go. Super excited! So at GTKW ou get a 3 day pass right to WDW? We were thinking of doing MK first day, Epcot one day then AK one day too. Do you suggest staying at the park all day and then watching fireworks? Or driving back and forth for a break in between? We aren't really a morning family so if we went mid morning could we last until fireworks? Our kids are 8 (wish kid), his twin and our daughter 11 but celebrating her 12 birthday while we are there. We will have rest days in between too. Also, I had TS ar MK but sounds like not great food t Liberty restaurant or Tonys. Should we just do CS? And if so where?

We got dates!!!!

So, we are super excited! We got Prescott's dates yesterday!!!! It seems so real now. We will be flying out on 5/31 and will be at GKTW till 6/6, then we are extending and flying home 6/9. It couldn't have better timing as Prescott had surgery and had to stay in the hospital longer due to complications last week. So, it was refreshing to have some good ol fashioned happiness delivered by phone! Yay!

Yes, you will receive three day park hopper passes to Disney, 2 day park to park at Universal and one day passes to seaworld.

Some chapters let you extend. Some do not. Ours is one that does not let you extend. I would ask whoever is in charge of granting your sons wish and ask them if extending is something you wanted to do.


This past week has been SO hard waiting for Trev's test results! I'm praying we can hold off on surgery at least another year. This is the closest we have come to him possibly needing his pulmonary valve conduit and it makes me anxious! Hopefully these will be baseline tests and he can wait a few more years for his next surgery!

I hope everyone going on there trips in the next few weeks has a magical time!

Jackie

At MK there is a Wish lounge, same with Epcot. So if you needed a break you could go there, a CM gets you in and you can hang out. I have read some TRs on how their kids have even taken a little nap in there. They also have a restroom and water bottles. So if you took advantage of that, with the age of your kids, you could probably make it to fireworks.

Like someone else said, some chapters allow it. I know ours does but we weren't going to do that. I know some people have saved some of their tickets for their extended days. So that allows them to take in more of what GKTW offers, as far as entertainment there and other park tickets they have (Legoland, Gatorland, Aquatica, Sea World, etc). And then use the WDW or Univeral after they chedkout of GKTW. You only stay at GKTW a week, typically, so people usually have to pay for a hotel. Their chapter will still pay for airfare, and food if they saved some of their provided money.

YEA for dates!!!

Question we are flying into Orlando on Saturday at 4pm and plan on going to MK for the evening. I realize this will be an expensive evening, but can't pass up the opportunity for the boys to ride a few rides. Should I go about trying to get a GAC for that night or just wear MAW shirts??

I would get a GAC as anyone can re-wear those shirts to try and get the benefits. Sad but true. Or buy them without any affiliation with MAW, to get the benefits.
