zeppy 68 ian's wish trip

After reading all these great trip reports. We are ready to start are
Journey. hello all

Ian is are wish child. He is three years old and has an optic nerve tumor.
which was diagnosed almost two years ago. We have spent the past year
and half going through treatment at childrens Hospital.
Ian has big heart and it tears me apart seeing him and any children that are
in similiar positions.
Ian is always saying hello to everyone and always hugs all the nurses. When we were told he would qualify for maw. We asked him and he said
"Me go to Mickey Mouse" So every day we sit home and wait for the magic
to happen.
Then there his brother Jt Who is 6 and takes care of his brother like no other.
When are make a wish granters Doug and carolyn came over to visit ian.
What blast ian had. Ian said me go to mickey mouse and see boom booms
his word for fireworks. Well a couple weeks later we were apporved here we come disney

Well we are confirmed got a letter from make a wish and confirmed.
We will be staying at gktw on nov 23. We also have some reservations
for charcter meals. the first day we will be eating at cyrstal palace. Ian loves winnie
the pooh and gang and this should be a great surprize for him.

Everday he keeps asking when we are going. The little guy has been through
so much and to see him so excited tickles my heart.

Here we come disney world time to start adding more plans.

After making several calls I was able to secure reservations for cape may
breakfeast. This will probaly be ians favorite place.

He has a book of mickey mouse going to the beach with the whole gang
and to see them in their suits I think will make his day unfortunatley I dont think Mickey mouse is at this character breakfeast.


Ian just had a visit with the eye dr and he is going to need some surgery.
his eyes wonder lot and at first they thought it was being cause by the vincristine but things still havent got a better so next couple months will be busy We dont have our mri scan until middle december so we will get some down time for him to enjoy his trip.

With the wish trips I have been hearing there are pre parties before you depart. Is this done by the local wish organizations? We are a little over a month way and we havent heard any news.
But reading all the trip reports I guess wonder when thigs will start to happen.

Yea- I finally found your trip report ( I read that you had one over on bex271's report). You are going to get there the day after we leave. Our trip overlaps a little bit with becca's and when you said you were going to be there the same time as becca, I had hoped we would be there the same time also. You are actually going the time we wanted to go ( so our kids wouldn't miss as much school) but our wish chapter said they couldn't do it over a holiday because it would be too expensive. The only thing that would have been a different price would have been plane tickets-oh well!

I think the pre-departure party varies by wish chapters. I think some do one and some don't. We haven't heard about one for us so I'm not holding my breath. Some get limo rides to the airport and some don't. I know we don't- I wish we did because my kids would absolutle love that but we live 90 miles from the airport so that wouldn't work anyway.

I can't wait to hear more of your plans.

Carol

Hey! You should put a link to your pre-trip report in your signature to make it easier to find!

I'm on board for your pre-trip report and can't wait to hear all about your trip!
