Party at my Castle!!!!
(click to view larger image)
Our precious little princess will be 1 year old on June 11th. Above is the invitation and all who are willing to drive a ways to see her are invited! (NOTE: party is on the 7th!!!) After a long discussion and thinking this through, JR and I have decided that although gifts are customary for a birthday party, we are going to break tradition this time around. So, in lieu of gifts, especially since Lindsay is very limited for space, we have decided to ask that you give in another way. Anyway you choose actually. Whether it is giving blood, volunteering, registering to be an organ donor, or giving a monetary donation to your favorite charity. One simple request is all we have.....please email us or comment under this posting as to what you did to be the ray of sunshine in someones day and/or life. We can't begin to express our gratitude to all of you who have helped, and continue to help, us get through this whole life altering event in our lives financially. We are "above water" because of you!! And the amazing part of this is that you keep giving!! This is so unbelievable and we are humbled. So, please email me if you plan on attending the princess' birthday party. I know it is a far drive for all, but we certainly would love to have you as our guests on the special day.
With Love, Suzie
UPDATE: Lindsay is doing very well after her Rituxin last week and starting yesterday, she is getting her IVIG treatment. They are doing 50cc's over a 12 hour period two days in a row to hopefully prevent any fluid overload issues. So far so good except for a high heart rate last night but before I left for the evening, the rate was coming down very slowly. No calls overnight so that is a very good thing! Today (5/19) is her second day and the next dose will begin at 2pm. Say your prayers that this will help. This time she has CellCept on board so who knows what will happen with all three mixed together! ;-)
Also, Cruz's CT scan came back completely within normal ranges!!! When the ENT told me this at the follow up appointment on Thursday, I could have just hugged him! He knows all that we have going on and I think it would have been an awful thing to have to say something was wrong.....but there isn't! THANK YOU LORD!!!! As Cruz would say, "Whew! That was close!" ;-)
