Funny you both were told to worry about Fevers. We were never told that. I didn't play with him at all if he was running a fever I brought him in and they treated him. They did jump fast when he got a blood clot in it. They found it on thur and he had it out on Tue.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the smiles on your girls faces as Cinderella is signing their book

So glad that everything worked out OK and that Kylee finally got the BBB experience this time since she wasn't able to on her wish trip. Love the photopass pictures of her! Such a lovely princess!

Even with your late start, you all got a lot of rides and character meets done. The park looked pretty crowded in your pictures. A great fun filled day!
Thank you Gail It was so crowded on Mainstreet and running was fun..not...lol. We got to do a lot. Still a few things we weren't able too. Even with the button..we had to wait 30min for a lot of rides. We had to skip the Jungle Cruise ride and we never did see Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, and Donald Duck.I believe they were at the front and since we had to run through that...we didn't see them.

It sounds VERY crowded though Kylee looks BEAUTIFUL and it is evident Korissa is having a VERY magical trip, Praise God! THANK YOU for all of the pictures, I know what a LOT of hard work that is!!!
Thank you Judy. We did end up having a Magical day. The magic button did help. Doing a TR is hard work, but really..I'm having a blast doing it. I'm not the best writer(part of my mito and my brain doesn't work well), but love putting our trip in writing. Just medical life does get in the way I'm not sure how people can't sit down and do a TR. I owe it to all the Big Givers that worked so hard making our customs and all the Pixie Dust. Like showing Tim..his GC went to the yummy Mickey Head Ice Cream. We would of never bought these. The GC that we got from the Laxton family that paid for Kylee's BBB. One of the Visa GC that we got from Cheryl(i forgot Disname..I know it's WDW something) that the girls got to do the Pick a Pearl made into beautiful rings), how the backpacks that Lynn made came in handy..ect. Not to mention.. our awesome day at Discovery Cove....though that's our last full day in Florida, so that will be a few before I will get to that.

Too bad you couldn't stay for Wishes.. I think it started at 10 while you were there? That is late and you did miss the mass exodus out of the park.


yes...Wishes started at 10pm. If you didn't have a spot by 7pm..you were out of luck. Mainstreet was packed. They had the Electrical parade at about 9 and then after that was the memories on the Castle then Wishes. I should of taken a picture what mainstreet looked like. and DW closed at 1am.. 10pm was late for us. When Korissa said she was done...she was done. Poor kid couldn't even walk anymore.




I think we had to bring her to the hospital 7 (?) times over her 5 months on treatment for fevers. They always pumped her full of antibiotics. Reason being is that port is a line directly to the heart. If there is any bacteria in that line, it would get pumped thought the body= NOT GOOD! So she also had to get the port accessed to run full labs as well. Loads of fun in the middle of the night with a tired 1yr old.

She only had the port while on chemo so it was being accessed weekly. She had the port placed on April 2nd and her port was removed on Sept. 13th- one month after her final chemo.
How scary. I'm hoping since we will be only using it while in hospital and monthly flushes...we won't get an infection. This was such a hard decision to make, but I just can't stand seeing her go through 10IVs and 7 blood draws pokes everytime she is inpatient. They need more than 1 IR doctor for our very busy Childrens Hospital.

I'm really shocked they didn't say anything too you. I just know what to look for since i know what a central line can do. Unfortunately..I have had too many friends losing their kids from line infections. Though they were using it everyday and were very sick with Mito.

Luvin the update. The pic of Kylee on HM is funny but I don't blame the kiddie for being scared of it. I won't go on any of those rides so she's braver than me though

The photopass pics are brill. They all look so happy meeting the princesses

Loving all the updates. Looks like you were able to meet alot of characters.

And the prince is Prince Eric with Ariel.

Love the BBB pics. I am so glad that you were still able to do it. I think they run behind because we had to wait quite a while when we went.

Day 4..Epcot!!

So today was suppose to be our Busch Gardens day, but we just needed a morning we didn't have to wake up so early. We decided to change things around and go to Epcot. I was kind of sad because that meant we did all our Disney days in a roll and no more Disney, but it was for the best. It also turned out great we switched(more on why later...great surprise) We set the alarm clock for 8:30am.

We all were ready and out the door at 9:40 and we all get in the van and head to the Gingerbread house for some Breakfast. Again..yummy food. We ate kind of quickly so we could head for Epcot. This was a new park for us. We didn't come here on Kylee's Wish Trip.

We finally saw this...



We get in the park and saw this...




This thing is huge. We got to go to Epcot during the Flower and Garden festival. So glad we did. Epcot was just so beautiful and the smell was just amazing. We stopped and took a few pictures

Buzz and Woody



Lots so...I have to admit. I had no clue who he was until Kylee and I watched the movie while she was in the hospital. I thought he was kind of mean. Not sure I would of taken his picture



Before we got to far from the Make A Wish VIP Lounge we decided to go check it out. I heard many wonderful thing from TR and they were right



Kyra is Shhhhhing everyone because it was a top secret room. Going up the elevator.





This little computer was so cool. You touch the color and the floor changes color. Each kids had to pick their favorite color and stand on the floor.



Korissa.. Yellow


Kylee..


Kyra...pink


Steven...orange


Ashlee...green


This is the all you can drink soda, coffee, and water. Shhhhh..I took 4 vanilla creamers so I could have some good coffee in the morning. It was too darn hot to have coffee then.



They have this funny mirror that Kylee and Steven had too do.



Kylee practicing for when she goes to Discovery Cove..
