Celebrating 6 Years Old!

Happy birthday to our beautiful little 6 year old!  What an amazing weekend – getting to celebrate Princess Kennedy’s 6th birthday.  A little over a year ago, we didn’t even know if 6 was possible, now we know everything is possible! 

Things have been normal over the last month, which is great.  Being typical me, I never have enough time to sit down and catch up.  Since my last post, Kennedy had a spinal, some blood draws and typical LTM procedures.  Maddox went to her last spinal procedure and got a kick out of Kennedy waking up from the Ketamine.  I think she told him she loved him at least 20 times and ensured him that he had 4 eyes and 2 noses.  Kennedy is keeping up with gymnastics and dance and has been doing very well in school.  Can you believe she reads at a first grade level?  This too is amazing as chemo brain often causes learning disorders.

Shortly after my last post, our 13-year old floor friend Tyler passed away, as did 3-year old Jordan .  We were able to pull off an amazing experience for Tyler the Thursday before his passing.  I am grateful for everyone who stepped up to make his last days with his family amazing.  I only wish I could have done more and was secretly hoping that a little happiness would somehow save him. 

For now we are all  just staying busy and counting our blessings.  1 year, 3 months and 10 days left of chemo left.
