I am so sorry to hear that this happened. Just a quick thought. Ask your doctor about an Exogen Bone Stimulator. It is just as effective as the ones you wear 6-8 hours a day but you only use it for 20 minutes. I truly feel it helped my son's fracture heal.

I think your itinerary looks great!! You are going to have so much fun! Have you made any special dining reservations? You can do that at Disneyworld.com anytime! We don't have much advice as we are still planning our December trip. Just go with the flow as much as you can and enjoy GKTW.. that is my plan.. but I'm not always so good with the "go with it" part. The only other thing I can think of is to pack to dress in layers and comfort! Have a great time!!

So sorry to hear this! Praying that his Wish Trip will provide the magic needed for a speedy recovery! Hoping the trip is GREAT for all of you!

LOL....ah shucks! I sure hope they do, I hope we can make Sophia feel special on this day, she has been an absoulute fabulous big sister to Gabbie


The wish granters visited us on Saturday night....it was so fun! I'll get some pics loaded up one of these days I promise! So much to do pre trip!

Gabbie and Sophia both have nasty colds on top of it. Chicken soup in the crock'd pot...gotta get'em well!

I feel so bad for her but i dont know if i can ask my wish cordinator if she could come. I wouldnt mind paying for her expenses in february but i am afraid to ask them. She would have to be able to stay with us at GKTW and be on the same air flight. Any advise from anyone. I just feel a horrible and i don't know what to do. I don't want to impose on MAW.
We brought my wish child's friend with us. Granted her parents and Grandma had to pay for everything( airfare, all theme park tickets, food and spending cash). She did get to stay with us at GKTW. Its pricey but if you are able to do it.. I know she would have a blast. Sounds like she needs that. We just called up our MAW chapter and asked. We just had to fax all her info and a written letter from her parents that it was ok for her to go. As long as you have 7 or less people going... GKTW doesn't mind who comes. Oh.. What we did was have our MAW chapter call us as soon as they made our airline reservation... Her mom called right away to get the same flight.

Joining this thread! Jacob's MAW trip has been approved and we have a date of Feb 23-29th! DH and I went to WDW in 2000 but haven't been back since and our kids have never been. We are all super super excited. Jacob's biggest Wish was for Legoland but he also wants to go to WDW and Universal Studios. I'm overwhelmed by all there is to do. I want this to be a memorable and special trip for him (and his sister too!). He has Leukemia (ALL) and was diagnosed last July. Tomorrow will mark 2 more years left of chemotherapy for him.

Looking forward to reading and learning in the next four months as we plan his trip! I have a feeling I might get addicted to this board. LOL!

I have a question!

You had mentioned that there was a Halloween party planned for Mondays now in October, can you tell me a little bit about that? My daughters 7th bday is that day, and we are for sure going to HS on that day to see Ariel. We were going to eat dinner at HS too, but when Sophia caught wind of me talking about a possible party, she goes, "well, if its my birthday, and there's a party, I should be there!" LOL

Gabbie, in her sweet little self also added, well yeah, if they are having a party, we should go for my sister!

We are all getting way past excited here!

There are four or five different stations with different activities and crafts. I was there last night and my station was cars themed, so we had a sheriff's car, a fire truck, and a race car that kids could learn about and get inside of. There is also lots of trick or treating spots as well. Mayor Clayton and Ms. Merry will be there and all of the volunteers are in costume.

Well It has been determined that DeAnna has a 2nd tumor in her nasal cavity. They are removing her nose and the tissue behind it on the 19th of October. ( will post the details on my PTR site for those intersted). However, she is really needing something to focus on over the next two weeks. I let her pick the house rental for the 2nd week we are staying, but anyone have some ideas of videos or websites (other than disney) that we can use as a distraction.

Thanks
