    Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. We are home. It was a long 9 days, but in the end..Kylee got a Port and she won't have to be poked again.

    I can't wait to get back to my TR. I just need this weekend to catch up on some sleep:goodvibes

    Today was our Disney World Day and Kylee's BBB appt at 10:25am. This is the day we were all looking forward too. Nothing can go wrong on this day...or can it?

    We all get up at 7am so we can be on the road by 8:45 to head to Disney world. We all get done at 8:00am and we open the door to head to the Gingerbread house for breakfast and we see a raccoon running from the grass to across the street. The kids were bummed they didn't get to see it, but I did get this...

    [​IMG]

    Before we all pile in the van..We got a family picture by our Villa.

    [​IMG]

    We all get in the van and head to the Gingerbread house for some yummy breakfast. after we were finished the balloon lady came and did balloon animals for the kids. I was kind of panicking on time, but the kids were having a blast with her.

    The balloon lady making Ashlee's. For some reason I didn't take a picture of Ashlee with her balloon, but she also got a Hummingbird.

    [​IMG]

    It was now 8:50am and time to head to Disney World and Kylee's BBB appt at 10:25. We all again pile in the van and headed on out. We get down the road and we had to stop for the red light by Walmart(for those that have been to GKTW) to make our left turn and Kylee yells that she is leaking from her back pack. now..she has her beautiful Cinderella dress on that Nini made and her princess backpack on that Ellen made ready for her BBB. I'm freaking out as I couldn't do anything as we were stuck at this light. Can I say...Florida has some of the longest lights ever. The light finally changed and we go straight into a Burger King parking lot and her feeding bag totally busted open. All 20oz of formula and prune juice was sitting on the bottom of her backpack pouring out. I was crying at this time. The back pack was ruined for the day, but the dress was spared...will it did have formula on it, but wasn't too bad. Now I'm freaking out on time. It was now 9:10 and we had to go back to GKTW to get a new backpack and feeding bag. Why I didn't already have it...I have no clue. I always bring an extra backpack, feeding bag, formula, and clothes...just in case, but this day I did not. Lets just say...after this day..I always had spare of everything.

    We get back to GKTW and did what we needed to do and headed out again. Now it's 9:40am. I knew we would be late now. I just could not believe this was happening. I have had this appt for 4 months and knew they were booked solid for the day and now I wasn't sure we will be able to do the BBB now. It was about 10:00 when we saw this..

    [​IMG]

    and about 10:10 when we got to see this...

    [​IMG]

    We park and I thought maybe we will make it...will a few minutes late, but still in an ok time, but then we get to the monorail. OMG.. the line was outrages. I thought maybe our special button will work, but nope..we had to wait. We get on the monorail at 10:35. Now we are 10 min late and we still had a few to go before we were in the park. too make a long story(opps..it's already long) we get in the park and Scott and kids go get a locker and Kylee and I run to the Castle(I was doing the running as she was in the stroller). It was kind of funny because as I was running I'm taking these pictures.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We get to BBB and there was 4 people ahead of us waiting to sign in. At this point..I'm just praying we can just get this done.

    Picture of Kylee as we are waiting to sign in.

    [​IMG]

    Up next...Will Kylee be a Princess???

    We finally made it to check in. They didn't say anything. I did tell them what happened, but I think they were so busy they didn't care. Kylee got her pamphlet to pick out a hair style.

    [​IMG]

    While we were waiting, Scott and kids came in. He gave me the GC and then him and kiddos went to go ride Space Mountain. I told him to be back in a hour. The next few pictures are of Kylee transforming into a Princess. I had tears watching this. We were suppose to do this on her Wish trip, but she was not feeling good and was exhausted, so we had to skip this. One of the reason I made an early appt time.

    After the photo Shoot Kylee had to use the restroom. I called Scott to tell him were we were going. I also need to change her dress as she had more formula on her than I thought and she didn't want to go around stinking like formula all day( I was so upset by all this). It took forever to find the restroom, but we did find it. We did our business and then Scott called to see where we were. I told him to stay by the Castle and that we will be there. Kylee was so excited to show everyone that she was a Princess. Daddy just loved seeing her Princess all done up.

    What a stressful start to the day...

    I am so glad Kylee made it to the BB in time! (kinda ;)) She looks beautiful!

    You guys look like you were having a BLAST! :)

    I can't wait to see what else you guys have in store!




    Glad you are back Kris! I am so happy Kylee received a port.:goodvibes
    Did they tell you you had to go to the hospital if she gets a fever? Juliana always ended up with fevers at 1, 2, 3am. Those night drives and stays at CCMC were never fun. :sad2:

    What a fun day. So sorry it started out so stressful, but at least you made it, and Kylee looked so beautiful all princess-y! Looks like everyone was having fun. Love the running and picture taking too. I know it didn't start out like you were hoping but I am so glad it all worked out!

    After Dumbo we rode Peter Pan. One of the best rides.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next was It's a Small World

    [​IMG]

    It was 1:30 when we got on
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was 1:45 when we got off
    [​IMG]

    We were done in Fantasyland so we headed to Liberty Square. We first hit the Haunted Mansion.

    Can you say someone is a little scared?? She went on tower of terror, but didn't want to go on this ride..too bad..mommy wanted to go.

    [​IMG]

    She was mad for me taking a picture.

    [​IMG]

    Next up...to see Jasmine and Aladdin

    [​IMG]

    After pictures and signing we were starved. By this time it was almost 3 and we were hot, hungry, and thirsty. I really wanted to go to the Wish Lounge, but the thought of walking back to Fantasyland in this heat and crowd wasn't feasible. We didn't want to eat big since dinner was around the corner, so we settled on eggs rolls and a drink from a cart.

    After our quick snack the kids wanted to go on Splash Mountain. Kylee and I sat this one out.

    Kylee waiting
    [​IMG]

    Next up was the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. again...kylee was having a cow, but made her go on. You can see her a little in this picture

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After the ride we found Ariel and Prince(for the life of me...I forgot his name). Ariel is Kyra's Favorite Princess. This was the one place somebody complained about was cutting to the front of the line.

    [​IMG]

    Next up..Finally seeing Cinderella, Belle, and Sleeping Beauty. Kylee had a blast showing off her dress..which had pictures of them all.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Up next was to find Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen. They weren't too far, but we had to wait 15 min for them to come back. Again loved to show Princess Tiana her dress.

    [​IMG]

    It was almost 5:30 and we were all starved so we headed for Mainstreet to look for some dinner. We ended up at The Plaza Restaurant. The food was good..either that we were just so hungry any food would of been good.

    Steven with his dessert..
    [​IMG]

    Up next... The last part of our day.

    After dinner we headed to Tommorowland. Just before dinner Kyra started with a stomachache. It was getting worse, so we did Monster Inc. We bought her some Tums hoping it'll work. We had never did Monster Inc before and really enjoyed it. After the show we went on Transit Authority(Peoplemover)

    Going up to the ride
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Thankfully after the ride Kyra started to feel better. Next ride was Buzz Lightyear. We get on the ride and we get stuck where it's spinning. It was a good 3 minute before we started again. Talk about getting sick:sick:...ugh. I do like Disneyland buzz lightyear better... no spinning:rolleyes1

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After being in the spinning and feeling sick..my score wasn't that great
    [​IMG]

    Our last ride of the night was Tomorrowland Speedway....which they rode twice.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We were all exhausted. It was 9pm so we decided to head on out. We first stopped for some Ice Cream. We were in the ice cream parlor and the electrical parade was starting. We walked out heading on out..watching the parade. Oh..before heading to get our ice cream I took a few pictures of the castle at night.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    When we were boarding the monorail the Wishes fireworks was starting. I was sad we couldn't stay for it, but bed was sounding so good.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We get back to the Villa at almost 11pm. Did our routine for the night and in bed at 12;30am. Can you say an exhausting but fun day. Our plan for Wednesday was to go to Busch Gardens, but that would of meant another early morning, so we decided to do Epcot and get up at 8:30am:).

    Up next..Pictures from the Passport.

    Wednesday..we head to Epcot..I got to meet a Special person:lovestruc.

    Thank you Lisa:hug:.
    Kylee is doing good. she went back to school yesterday. Her teachers are keeping a close eye on her...maybe too much;)

    Thank you Angie:hug: The pictures don't look like it, but I was really running. Never stopped to take the pictures.
    Thank you Tim:hug:

    I was told about the fevers(anything over 38c). Did Juliana have fevers even when the Port wasn't in use?? We won't be using Kylee's Port except for the monthly flushes and when she is admitted to the hospital. Do they normally have monthly blood draws too? The home health nurse will be out on the 28th to do her Chem 14 panels. Not sure if we have to do this monthly too.

    Thank you Ellen:hug: I was really really upset about her Princess back pack, but thankfully you made more than one;)..though Pooh didn't look as good as her Princess one would of.

    Thank you Emma:hug:
    Thank you Kathleen:hug:
    I'm really surprised they didn't tell you about the fevers. Glad that you didn't have a problem though and it last 7 years. I'm so hoping we don't have issues either. The Port is so scary.

    Thank you Krystal:hug:
    Really if I saw someone just sqeezing in I may say something too(though now I know better). The lines for the characters all were 60-90 min wait and it was really hot and someone taking a cut just means waiting that much longer. The CM told the lady and I think she was fine with it.
