Picking up Kai was so fun. As soon as he saw us, he ran to give us hugs. It was Awesome! He had so much to tell us about his time with my folks and the airplane ride. He looked so much bigger; I think they always do when they’re gone for a little while and you see them again.
Yesterday we took my mom to Disneyland. She hadn’t been in over 23 years, so there was a lot to see. Kai had been wanting to go to Disneyland for a while, so he was so excited to go. He was running circles in the living room saying, “Disneyland, Disneyland, Disneyland!” over and over. We were able to do a lot, but it turned out to be too much for me, and by the end of the day, I was in a wheelchair just so I could stay. I just got too worn out – too much walking, and it was a crowded day, so we stood in a lot of lines. I did sit down for a little bit, while my mother took Kai on a ride. Sol was able to meet us around 5:00 pm, and we had fun. I am a bit sad that my mom didn’t get to ride “Soaring over California”. I think it’s one of the most unique rides they have, and she really would have enjoyed it. We were in line with a 45 minute wait, then they came on and said they were having technical difficulty, it would another 15 minutes on top of the wait time. It was late and cold, and I started feeling really bad, so we decided it was time to go home. Someday she’ll go on it.
Today was my third treatment of Navelbine. It went smoothly and didn’t knock me out as much, but it did knock me out for a while. I think the excitement of going to D.C. is helping to wake me up. My mom and I leave tomorrow morning to go see my sister and her husband in D.C. and stay until Tuesday. The weather is supposed to be rainy or chances of rain the whole time we’re there. We’ll see what happens. Maybe it’s God’s way of saying, “Slow down, Monica”.
Pray for Sol as he’s home with Kai alone, and we’re getting glimpses of the terrible twos. He’s a good boy most of the time, but there are those precious moments we’d love to forget and someday will – I hope!
Thank you for your prayers. My red count is still low, but another transfusion wasn’t mentioned for this time – maybe next time but not yet.
I’ll post from D.C. and hopefully Sol will too to let you know what’s going on with us.
Love and blessings,
