Then our Wish Grantors will be here Friday night to throw him a small send off party and give us our plane tickets, expense money, etc.... Then we just wait. Its the waiting that is hard!

Took her back to the doc on Thursday and she got another shot and more antibiotics and got sent that day to the ent b/c there was an abscess back there in her throat. Turns out she had a peritonsillar abscess, ended up having surgery for it that afternoon, it was obstructing her airway. She is missing work and band camp. Then on Friday, my little puppy girl decided to take out half her stitches so I had to take her back to the vet and she had to be restitched, so now she has a wonderful e-collar on.

Anyway - today is Cade's birthday. He has officially hit the double digits, the big 10! I put a small update on the PTR.
OH MY! What a week your family has had! Hoping this week is much better foe you!

Happy Birthday Cade!

And in case the overabundance of emoticons doesn't convey my excitement, I'll add a YIPPEE!

Ugh - that sounds...relaxing and all sorts of fun. (I kid, I kid!) Hopefully EVERYONE is on the mend now. And I very to Cade! Happy double digits!

And on a small personal victory - it only took me a couple of months to learn how to mulit-quote. Woohoo!

sigh...and obviously it will take me a little longer than my 33 years to learn to proofread for spelling errors due to fast fingers.

I am impressed with the multi-quoting...I haven't mastered that yet!! Cade has been enjoying his birthday, playing Legos all day. We aren't having a party for him until the 18th. I am going to do cupcakes tonite though...he won't eat them but it just doesn't feel right w/o some kind of cake. Plus, I love cake!!

We are also going for my sons make a wish from august 15-21 but I am so worried about the weather, are you? I know it rains everyday in orlando but they are calling for severe thunder storms daily. My heart would break if this trip is a bust. His send off party is this Saturday and I figure I might have until then to see if we could reschedule. It would allay my fears to hear if you are not worried and proceeding as planned. They go through so much and I just couldn't bear the disappointment of sitting in a hotel room the whole time. We do enough sitting around in hospital rooms. Please help, give me confidence! Lisa

Okay, I need a little advice from a Disney veteran.

A wish kid I have wants to meet Silvermist. Specifically Silvermist, though the other fairies are on the list as well. She had talked about a Disney Cruise as well, but I'm almost positive the fairies don't make regular appearances on the cruise, is that right? The fairies were by far more important than the cruise, so I want to make sure we're sending her to the right place.

Now, to find fairy and princess dresses for a variety of wishes. Anyone know if they make princess dresses out of materials that are very easy on the skin for size 6-8 ish? It would also help if it was something that could be put on from the front rather than having to be stepped in to.

My friend lives in Orlando and she says it is typical this time of year for it to storm in the late afternoon and then die off but that is from around 3 to 4. She says it can be unexpected though. So maybe if it does rain it will only be for that short time and dry up quickly

Smile Hello Dis

Hi, my name is Nathan. We just found the Disboards. One of my twin three year old girls was diagnosed with ALL about five months ago, and just recently we got a call from a MAW representative. We, my family and I, just want to say hi, and that we have been moved and humbled by your stories here in the forum.

Peace and blessings.

Take ponchos and something to cover your stroller if you have one, and don't leave them in your room! Take them with you and plan to carry on. You NEVER know what the weather will be at any given time of the year. I have frozen in May, Fried in December, and been wet in every season. Ya just gotta roll with it.

In my experience, no fairies for meet and greets on cruises. much higher likelihood in Magic Kingdom.

People with kids with sensory issues have had good luck with the soft 'nightgown' type princess dresses, but I think they still go over the head or pull up.

Lindababe is so right, the weather can be iffy no matter WHAT season...be as prepared as you can and just relax/savor...it is going to be the best trip of your life! Also remember, it will NOT be perfect, things WILL happen. Just try to roll with it all and remember this is a wish trip, magic is already happening!

This type of costume is one of my faves! My girls have used them in a variety of sizes/styles through the years and we LOVE them!!! They are soft and silky on the skin. They both have sensory issues and my wish princess has multiple scars on her chest/abdomen and these don't hurt! I have used this seller many times with great success.
