Thanx Kaitlin!!
Hope everything went well with Michayla's surgery today. Prayers and good thoughts to you, Michayla and the rest of your family. And lots of to Michayla for a quick recovery.

BTW, Tyler's peanut butter bar looks so good. Love those. They are a lot of chocolate but they are so good.

Thank you so much!! Michayla is doing well, resting in ICU....we're hoping she continues to do good so we can move to a regular room.

SO A LITTLE RUNDOWN FOR TODAY: MICHAYLA WENT IN TO HAVE HER ATRIAL SEPTUM DEFECT (HOLE) REPAIRED. IT WAS THOUGHT TO BE THE SIZE OF A DIME, BUT WHEN THEY GOT IN THERE THEY FOUND IT TO BE THE SIZE OF A NICKEL....SO MUCH LARGER. THEY ALSO FOUND 2 ADDITIONAL HOLES THAT ALSO WERE PATCHED. SHE IS IN THE ICU UNTIL THEY KNOW SHE IS STABLE ENOUGH TO MOVE TO THE REGULAR KIDS WARD. SHE IS BEING KEPT PRETTY DRUGGED, BUT DOES WAKE OCCASIONALLY QUITE DISORIENTED, SCARED & HURTING. THE NURSES ARE ON TOP OF THESE EPISODES & GET HER CALMED BACK DOWN WITH MEDS. WE ARE PLEASED WITH HOW WELL SHE'S DOING & CAN'T THANK EVERYONE ENOUGH FOR ALL THEIR SUPPORT & PRAYERS DURING THIS TIME. IT'S APPRECIATED MORE THAN WE'LL EVER BE ABLE TO SAY!!!

Day Two, February 24th......our Purple Castle Shirt Day.

I got early to hit the park for the 8am opening. Tyler decided to sleep in & so I headed off to meet up with the Divas for the Princess Fantasy Faire picture. I walked up Main Street & headed towards the Matterhorn/Fantasyland. The beautiful mountain is under a major refurbishment, so it was kinda sad to see it all wrapped up & workers with hard hats working on it.



As I was headed that way, I looked to the right at Pixie Hollow & it was open......and there was no line....at all!!!! I asked the CM, "are you open?" & she said "Yes". So I went up the path to get some pics with the fairies!! I got to go right back & met Silvermist. Addy hasn't seen her, so she was like.....AWWWWWWWWWW....lol



Then of course, I got some time with Tinkerbell.



Since I still had about 20 mins before I needed to be up at the PFF, I turned into Fantasyland to see if I could spot any other Divas. I found Daisy, her MIL Jill, Miss Sally, Paula & Sarah. They were just coming off Peter Pan. I'm not sure where Miss Sally & Paula headed next, but Daisy, Jill, Sarah & I headed towards Alice....making a stop at the teacup photo op. There was a photopass photographer....so you'll have to wait to see that picture.....but let's put it this way....those teacups aren't made for 4 grown women....just sayin'

So we got in line for Alice & took a ride. When we got off....there wasn't any line for the teacups.....so we did that next. Daisy passed as she was having back issues & since we had such a tight squeeze for our pic....I opted to ride solo in a cup. Here's Jill & Sarah!!



We were seeing other Divas heading up towards PFF, so we did as well. Here are pics of all the lovely purple clad Divas taking over the PFF area.




This is Melody, Katie & Capri:



Bridget, Jill & Daisy:



Amy, Paula, Miss Sally, Deb, Jill, Stephanie & Cheryl sitting with her back to the camera:






Cynthia & Dianna:






Holly & Jen:









Our group shot with Belle, Tiana & Ariel:



Me with Jen & Ariel:



While we were exiting another photopass photographer had us stop & pose with a heart. They were going to use some of the pics for the Magic, Memories & You show that is shown on IASW. I'm not sure if any of the Divas got over to see the show & whether our pics where included or not.

Those group photos look like so much fun. And I can't help but notice the little Stitch on Lisas bag. So cute!!

Too bad about the Matterhorn, but excited to see it's improvements. I am kinda hoping it's not as bumpy and rough with the new cars on it.

Second - good thoughts from your neighbors up North. Ok, I need Tink again... Lots of Pixie Dust Michayla's way so she can take the next step to move from ICU to a regular room. Sounds like she's making good progress and the nurses are giving her lots of TLC.

From your latest TR install... do you know with the Matterhorn rehab, are they going to try to smooth out some of the bumps? I love what they have done with Space Mountain, but have to say the Matterhorn of the past had a lot of ouch, ooch to it. At least at my advancing age I would love to exit from that ride and not have the need to gingerly rub my back as I'm standing up.

BTW, I didn't realize the purple Diva shirts had DIS DIVAS on the backside of the shirt. Too cute!

They're fun but probably a nightmare for the photopass people......
I know the Tomorrowland side was MUCH smoother than the Fantasyland side.

Walking right in at Pixie Hollow is unheard of, especially during a busy time......the parks were always busy....so SHOCKER!! But, this goes back to me saying that it pays to be there at opening!!!

Thank You!! She's doing 100% better & we've moved into a regular room at 5:30pm.....so she's actually laying on the bed playing & smiling.

She's amazingly tough....Mike & I were saying we'd be curled up in a ball pushing the more morphine button........but not this one!!

As for the Matterhorn....I believe I had read that they were totally replacing the track as well as giving it a facelift. So hopefully that will smooth things out. I agree, with the birthdays not stopping...that ride was starting to get a bit painful.

I know the gals hate being photographed from behind.....but you miss out on the cute extras like that one!! Those shirts are awesome!!
