August 2, 2011

Well Saturday was definitely a success.  Buffalo Wild Wings (BDubs) employees were definitely busy!  According to their manager they were steady busy all day long.  They sold over $5,000 in sales that day with people that came in with flyers.  Coach Spencer was able to setup a table at the entrance to sell more Kassidy Army tshirts & bracelets.  Again, another great night of great support from all of you.  Thank you!

Now we just need a little rest.  It's been an amazing couple of weeks,but we are wiped. It was so nice to take a rest day on Sunday and just enjoy the day, go to breakfast. We have so much to get caught up on and get Kyle ready to get him ready to go off to college.  The days are passing us by and the day before we leave to take him to Boise State will be here before we know it.
Gave her a free day, she still orders from the kids menu.
On Sunday we also got the greatest news that my dear cousin Ari went into labor and had her baby boy.  Little Thiago Gael was born around 4pm that day weighing at 8 pounds 4 ounces.  Congratulations Ari & Josimar for your beautiful and healthy baby boy.  We cannot wait to meet him soon.
A gift from God!

Monday came, and Ryan and I had a little of bit of nerves, first day of tennis intra murals for Kass.  As I drove her to the school I had to stop my mind from thinking.  What if this, what if that..... Ugh! Coach started the girls with a brief introduction and then instructed them to run 3 laps around the courts; well Kass made it almost one lap and she had to stop because of her breathing.  One of the previous symptoms she had before the we even knew what was wrong.   She stopped to catch her breath and continued with some other agilities; again stopping every time she felt she needed a break.  She continued to do the skills, but fell twice.  She just would get up with a smile and give me the thumbs up while my heart almost palpitated out of my chest.  The dang decadron causes weak joints.  Have I said how much we hate, this drug!!! Kass said her knees have been feeling weird the last few days, but this does not stop her.  My girl is driven and we love that about her.  Cancer will not keep her down!

Today she went back to tennis and did a little better.  She has not really done much exercising for the last couple of months so she has very sore muscles.  But she loves the feeling of being outside and doing something physical and that she enjoys.  So we are all up for that.  Quality of life is important to us!!!!!!  So I will go to all the practices and games if I need to, to make sure she will be ok and fix little problems when the pump decides to act up like today.  I believe we frieked out a couple tennis players today when the pump started beeping.  The faces of the girls were priceless!  "Oh my gosh Kass your beeping!"  Just a simple fix, no biggie.

Tomorrow we go for our first MRI since she's started treatment.  Doctor did say not to expect results yet on the tumor since it's been so recent, but we can dream can't we.
