If this too personal I totally understand but what is going on healthwise with your child? I am so sorry, whatever it is.

They found a tumor in his leg. It is the size of a tangerine and frankly they are stalling us. The doctor told me he had never seen anything like it so he needed to consult with the radiologist and the orthopedist. This was on Thursday morning, I am sorry but in these five days they had to have heard something. And when I call I get the rude run around, basically the "don't call us, we'll call you." So since Thursday we have waited worrying and just not knowing what is going on. Sorry, I just needed to destress.

Oh my gosh- I am so sorry. The waiting is just horrible, I know. Don't apologize for destressing and venting...vent away!! I will say a prayer for your family. I am really sorry they are being toads- you'd think they have never been parents or had parents.

Thank you, all prayers are greatly appreciated. I was thinking that about being parents. I decided that my husband can call them tomorrow. He has good experience dealing with doctors from when I was really sick a few years ago. He can handle that snotty nurse.

We've got some crabby nurses where I work too. I work on an adult locked psych unit in a hospital and you'd think they'd never heard the words empathy and sympathy. Their bedside manner stinks!

Wishing your DH the best. Did the say how long test results/consultations would take?

I understand that after dealing with patients and their families all day but, I also think a little empathy would go a long way. They had the x-ray right away and the doctor had never seen anything like it. He told myself and my son this and I thought my son was gonna cry. Loren is 13 and thinks he is real grown up but he is still young enough that this scares him. I have done my best to not show my emotions around him.

Thank you, I think DH will get further than I did. At least I hope he does.

WoC new and budgeting

WoC is set to begin June11th!!!! Now if Disney would release the GCV benefits and/or the PS.




DH asked what he thought we would spend on this trip. So along with printing off menus last after the kids went to bed, I did a little Disney math. The categories and amounts are as followed:

Fuel: $400 rt from SLC to Anaheim

First night hotel: $115 at the Marriott unless HoJo releases an entertainment rate for 6/12

GCV: $0 paid baybee!

APs: $0 Paid!

Souvenirs: $300. I know myself too well to say $25 per child. Plus we'll have Gabby's BFF with us and she hasn't been in 7 years. How can I not spoil that child?

Travel food: $200 total including snacks in the car as well as stops.

Groceries: $100

Food in the parks including snacks, TS, CS, and tips: $1300 I thought it would be less but with Ariel's Grotto, Blue Bayou, Wine Country, and Storyteller's it sure added up.

Dog kennel: $180

Neighbor child watering garden:: $30; $5 per day for 6 days.

Tips for Mousekeeping: $20. They will only clean the villa once during our stay.

Misc. including Ridemax: $100
