June 26, 2011
First all, I want to thank each one of you for your love and support! THANK YOU, is not even enough for what some of you have done. We want to especially thank Dave for hosting a poker tournament and to our Wyoming family for doing the garage sale; both events were very successful. We can't forget all of those who have donated, our deepest gratitude.
On Friday, we finally got the chance to meet with two reporters from the Review Journal. They spent 5 hours with us interviewing our family and then each of us individually. It was especially hard when we were being interviewed separately because we had to relive some of the difficult moments we've been through in the last month. We all know this is for Kassidy and that is the only reason we do it. Kassidy, especially does not like all the fuss about her. We are not the type of family to really ask for help, but this is about our daughter's chance at life and we will do what we have to.
We left home on Saturday afternoon, but oh how hard it was for all of us. Our mixed emotions about what is in store, is hard to bear sometimes. But we were able to stay with good friends in Tucson, AZ Saturday night that we have not seen in a couple of years. Thank you so much Striblings, it was so good to see you guys and share a little time together. We continued our trek today and we are now in Ozona, Texas. Wow, Texas is big! We are taking our time and not really stressing ourselves out. We are excited about tomorrow since we will stop in San Antonio to sightsee and finally arrive in Houston.
Tuesday morning is our appointment at the Burzynski Clinic. We are all anxious, but scared at the same time. That day we hope to find out if Kassidy's qualifies for the antineoplaston treatment and if she doesn't what does the personalized treatment exactly entails. We also hope to find out if she will need a port to administer her medicines which needs to be put in surgically, estimated time of treatment, medicines that will be administer, etc The appointment should take 3 to 4 hours.
At this time, we are not sure of how long Kass and I will be there or even where we will stay. But we are taking a step at a time. Have a couple friends in Houston that are willing to help with plans and we are excited about that.
Please keep us in your prayers, we are very nervous about Tuesday. God bless all!
