Sorry to hear about your brother, but thankfully his blood clots were recognized and can be treated.

I know exactly what you are going to do when you leave the MK and it has something to do with a balloon and a child and its such a sweet, thoughtful gesture.

I am sure I am not caught up completely. So far behind with everything right now.

Cute picture of the "kids".

I'm sorry to hear about your brother but, like Mary Ellen said, at least they found the source of the problem and can now administer treatment for the clots.

Don't you just hate that last day in Disney? It makes me so sad. At least you'll have another trip coming up very soon afterwards.

Glad to know you are feeling better (yep, I'm a few posts behind) but sorry about your brother's health issue.... like others said, good to know there is a diagnosis and hopefully he is already doing better. Sending well wishes your way.

The wrestling pose engagement photo is so very clever. Love the idea of incorporating "life" into the collection.

As for your fabulous Dis plans near (next month) and not so far (Dec) trips - how exciting to have double the planning pleasure! I hope you guys are able to book Be Our Guest - that would be awesome! However, being the big Kona fan that I am - I would definitely console myself with some of their breakfast goodness all the more if I couldn't get an ADR at BOG!

Ohhh... and how awesome that you have tickets for the MVMCP!!!!

Have a great day!!!

It turns out that his heart is stable (the same as it has been the last six months), but the cause of his chest pain and shortness of breath is he has a blood clot in his leg, his stomach and two in his lungs.
Ugh. Blood clots are no joke. I'm glad the heart is hanging in there...hope they can get him treated and those clots broken up. Hang in there.

Remind me not to buy a car from you.

You know, Nicki and I talked and we decided to skip the Christmas party since we had limited time. When we added the extra night/day, and I mentioned it to the kids and Des (Andy's girlfriend) got super excited. Now she has been excited about it too.

Thanks for keeping my brother in your thoughts.

Thank you, Amanda, for the prayers and the hug.

Now that I've bought the tickets, I'm as excited as a school child.

MaryEllen, trust me, I know all about playing catch up...it's impossible at times.

The doctor told him had he NOT gone for his stress test and they had noticed how swollen his leg was, he could have literally died in a couple of weeks if the clots burst. So despite not wanting him to have a bad heart, in this case it could have saved his life.

You got it right...balloon and a child for my dad. I can't believe next week will be four years since we lost him.

I can't wait to see the rest of the kids pictures this weekend.

I'm glad they found the clots too and can treat them too, Lisa.

I don't hate the last day at Disney quite as much since we always go to Nickiland after, and I do have that special trip less than three months after this upcoming trip.

Brenda, you've been a little busy with work and getting ready for your trip so don't you worry about it. Thanks for the well wishes for my brother.

I am so not surprised that my son did some "wrestling" photos...it is his life, after Alisha, of course.

I was getting so confused with both trips and worried that I'd slip and say something to Mark and he'd figure it out, that I now have two itineraries: 1 for September and 1 for December; I keep the December one at the office so it doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

I'm so glad we're going to Kona in both September and December...LOVE that place.

I think the party will be fun with Andy and Des.

Hope you have a great day too.

Thanks, Mark. Actually all but one have not broken up; one more to go and then they'll release him and then in three weeks he'll have to go back and finish that stress test and see where they go from there with the heart.

Remind me not to buy a car from you.
You wouldn't buy a car from sweet, innocent me? I think I'm insulted.

Suzi, I knew what you meant right from the start. You are very sweet. I saw you did an update and I want to read it after my 2:00 staff meeting.

LOVE me Kona; don't know what took us so long to finally eat there.

So my husband, my darling forgetful man, is asking why in the world I booked a 7:30 am breakfast at Kona...and I not so nicely reminded him that

A. He reminds me all the time he is up at 5am for work so an early breakast is not a big deal

B. This is a short stay and we have to make the most of it

C. Because Kathy and I are in charge of this bad boy and the men have to do what the marriage license says

OBEY OBEY OBEY

His retort?

Yes dear....


Yeah, thats what I'm talking about

Day 7, Part 2

I am doing an update now because I know for sure I won't get one done over the weekend as my baby and his fiance are coming in and we have dinner on Friday night, dress for me for the wedding shopping on Saturday morning, they are going to a concert in the evening and tahen we are bowling on Sunday morning and then taking them to see Mark's mom before they head home. So we'll be busy, busy, busy.

So I left wtih us doing as many attractions as we would have time for. And, as many of you guessed correctly, we will be heading here for our 1:10 p.m. ADR:



Where I am sure I will have one of these for dessert:



And we always seem to get a "couple" picture here:



If we are done with lunch and the parade is starting, we will hang around for that. If not, we will proceed to do what my good DIS friends here remembered: we will get a

and give it to a little boy or girl in memory of my dad.

After that, I'll grab one last and then we will start out the doors and see this



as we start our 3 hour drive to Marco Island to see my little sis and her wonderful hubby.

Pretty soon we will be seeing this:







Up next, what does Little Sis have in store for us this trip?

Sounds like a nice last day at MK!

The Plaza is so yummy! And the popcorn will be a nice last snack.

I really like how you give away in remembrance of your dad. Very sweet.

And at least you have more fun to look forward to after Disney.

By the way.....I just saw on FB that a few Disney related blogs are stating that Disney is saying you can start making ADRs for Be Our Guest on August 20th. It will be for dining dates starting on Nov. 19th. Hope y'all can get an ADR!
