Hi Eliza...I keep thinking good thoughts for the old guy. Maybe what Robon Roberts is going thru will get someone to be checked that might be a match...


I agree, when you are right in the middle of the situation it is tough to make the right call. You can only do what your heart says.

On to the talk of more DVC points...

There is a Webinar again this week. My guide tells me that what will be offered will be the exact same offer as on the member cruise...so apparently it is supposed to be a really good incentive. Might be worth signing on and listening in. Besides you do get a free piece of art.

WooHoo

Look What DD and I Got!







We both were selected on two separate reservations

So....You go to the Web site and can select four different "experiences" to book in advance
at the MK to be use over one day you had about 5 different dates to pick from.
Experiences included all of the fast past rides,
Special viewing areas for the parades,
Viewing for Wishes from the Rose Garden
and Photo/Meet and Greet with Mickey and Minnie at the town Square Theater
the passes are good for all members of your party staying on your reservation.

Boy DH so sorry you had to miss this one
This is my Youngest DD's first Visit on her Own DVC Points! and it's one of her friends First Visit!

So we booked times for Peter Pan, Photo with Mickey and Minnie,
3pm Parade viewing area in front of the castle and
Wishes from the Rose Garden

Oh by the way did I mention.....
3 Day Happy Dance

I'll take plenty of pics!

Hi folks,

You all know so very much about Walt Disney World. If any of you are interested in applying for the 2013 Moms Panel, the application process started today. You can read more here:

http://disneyworldforum.disney.go.com/recruiting/

I'd love to cheer you on! Although my tenure on the panel ends this December (boy, those two years went FAST!!!), I'd love to see a groupie on next year's panel. Remember, Moms and Dads (and aunts, uncles, grandparents...) are all encouraged to apply. All you need is a love of Disney and a willingness to help others plan their Disney adventures. It has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.

Go Groupies!

OOOH. I was wondering if DVC people were getting the invites or not. There's still hope! This looks like it came via regular mail, is that how you received it? A lot of people I've heard getting them via email.

I haven't been back here since I posted about finding out about my dad's cousin, Steve, having lung cancer. It was his son that I had sent to AKV for a night as part of their honeymoon a couple years ago. I had initially thought about sending Steve if he was well enough to go yet. He wasn't. He started chemo a couple weeks ago but it didn't do any good. Mom called this morning and said Steve had been taken to the hospital on Thursday from one of his chemo sessions when he started shaking and was very cold. His body was shutting down and he had some infection in him (not sure what). He took his last breath this morning at 5 am after being able to talk a little bit to his family yesterday.

I have to admit I'm not too happy with the medical profession at the moment. How could Steve be be so sick and they still were giving him chemo and false hope of recovery? There's no way if he is so far gone that his body is starting to shut down that the medical people didn't know just how sick he was. I just don't believe it. I've promised to come back to haunt Dynaguy if I am ever so sick and they torture me with chemo instead of making me comfortable and letting me go.

Mom said Judy's comment was that how could she be sad that Steve was gone when she knows he is in heaven? I think she is in shock since Steve was only gone about an hour at that point. She has a long way to go in her grieving but I am glad she is comforted now that her husband isn't suffering and he has gone Home. Mom offered to be there for her whenever she needed to talk, one widow to another. Everyone can offer to be there to help but I think it really does take someone who has been in the same shoes to understand what she is going through. I can't even begin to imagine losing my spouse. A big part of me would die with him.

Anyway, I have no idea what has been happening in the world of our lodge since I was last here a few weeks ago to ask for your prayers. Judy and the family will still need those prayers to get them through the coming days and months. As for me, I'm imagining Steve is in heaven with my dad and my grandpa and they are back to smoking their pipes together and telling tall fishing tales from years gone by. Steve's dad died when Steve was just a teenager so I imagine there is quite a reunion with his parents, too.

Thank you all for your prayers and positive thoughts. I really wish Steve had been healthy enough to send on a last trip to Disney but I think I knew from the beginning that he was pretty far down the path with his cancer. It was a wishful thought on my part for someway to be able to help, but never grounded in reality.
So sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and I hope your recovery goes well and quickly.

So I'll play a bit of devils advocate for the doctors, Cancer is not some thing that is ever grounded in reality. My life seems so totally foreign to me now. It is so absolutely all consuming, almost to the point of being unbelievable. The old guy caught an infection last week, which is devastating to some one with leukemia and no immune system, so we spend a week trying to beat that back with antibiotics and transfusion, so he can start chemo again because he can't get a transplant with active leukemia. There is simply no "reality" there. I sit there pleading with the doctors to do any thing and every thing because I just dropped off my 18 year old at the University of Cincinnati and there is no way I can destroy his entire world by showing up at his dorm telling him he has to come home.

As much as I'd like to think I'm making good decisions, the reality is the entire time, with every fiber of my soul, every thing I am is screaming "do whatever you have to do, whatever measures you need to take" I simply cannot even remotely imagine an existence without the old guy.


WD In the interest of full disclosure, let me say that my opinion is strickly based on pure emotion and a bunch of cliche's.

Add on!!
Wow Eliza since I haven't been on here for so long I had no idea what you and your family have been going through. I am sorry that you all have to be going through this. I hope for the very best for you and the Old Guy and I will be praying for you.
