So Ellie received her second half of her wish. Ellie was able to go to Disney with her cousins. It was a long week but exciting week for Ellie. We found that she absolutely loves roller Coasters. By the end of the week I had an MS relapse and was in a wheel chair for a few days. Luckily I have some great family that was able to help me.
I’m just so glad she was able to complete her wish.
I was so happy to be home, I missed Dave so much.
When we got home it was really difficult to get the
kids back to school. They were so upset about going back. When I walked them in, Ellie’s teacher informed me that there is a little boy that has a crush on Ellie. He even went out and bought her a Valentine’s Day Gift.
My heart melted. I even had a few tears when I got to the car. I never dreamed I would ever hear those words.
I was so grateful. I often think about Ellie’s future. I pray
every day that Ellie will survive this brain tumor. I often think of the challenges that are ahead for her. One of my fears is that she will never find someone that will love her unconditionally. Needless to say this gave me great hope.
Yesterday we went downtown for Chemotherapy and a Physiology appointment. It took around two hours to get downtown, traffic was horrible. Ellie did a great job speaking with the
physiologist, she was a little silly. I was so proud that she did a great job with Dr. Goldman also. Ellie’s counts were all low but she was in good spirits. She was even able to get her Chemo. We did run into another family we met at family brain tumor camp. They were downtown for their final chemo treatment. I was so happy for them but at the sometime it made me extremely sad inside. The mom asked me about Ellie and I told her that the chemo was not working and we had to switch regimens and start over. I want to reach our final Chemotherapy but more so I want her tumor to be stable. We are praying that this Chemotherapy Works so that someday I can experience that feeling. I know the challenges in Ellie’s life will always be there but I just
want her to live. Moving on to something on the brighter side..
I wanted to talk about the One for the Kids fundraiser for Ellie on April 28th. It is shaping up to be a great event, they are going to have wine tasting from Coopers Hawk, Photo Booth, An awesome band, A performing Artist (which looks awesome). If anyone has something they can donate for the Silent Auction please let me know. We need all the help we can get. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I cannot thank everyone enough for your love, support, and prayers. Without our friends,
family and community I’m not sure where we would be at this point.
A mother with a battle ahead of her.
