Verl Gillespie Roping Memorial!

This family is one Amazing group! They hold a memorial roping and this year they picked Konner as the beneficiary. It took place on Sat. October 16, 2010. We had such a great time getting to meet everyone and watching all the cowboys do what they do best! All of our kids had so much fun and I think the highlight for them was actually riding a horse. Konner was smiling the entire time except when it was nap time. We can never thank you guys enough for the generosity that you have shown us. You will forever hold a special place in our hearts. I cant wait for Konner to grow up and learn about how much everyone helped us out when we needed it. Thank You from the bottom of our hearts.

A wish............

So I have been feeling blah lately.. I cant seem to get Konner's sickness off my mind. I stare at this happy little baby that is mine and I just cant help but think about him being sick. I dont think it ever goes away. I try so hard to put everything at the back of my head and just try to focus on him getting better. But I still look at him and wish that I can just take his sickness away. Babies aren't suppose to get this sick. They aren't suppose to have to fight this awful battle. What gets me is Konner was born with this type of cancer. He had a tumor when he was born. I dont know how big it was then, but it couldnt have been that big. I do have alot to be thankful for and thats what I hang on to. I still have Konner to hold everyday. I still can hear him cry and try my best to comfort him when he is in pain. I know there are others out there who dont have that and for that im grateful. I just wish I had a wish!

So We got Konner's lab results back and his counts were higher then the previous months! We are still waiting to hear on his Urine results and should hopefully hear back by today! It has been a while since I posted last but not much has gone on. Konner is doing great currently. We finally got him on some meds to help him go to the bathroom. He has been having trouble going to the bathroom for almost 2 MONTHS! So things are getting better there. He is also starting to crawl on his knees!!! This is absolutely great news to us! It means that his brain is able to send signal to his legs and his legs are responding! in September he went in for his check up and they said that he may need therapy to help him walk and such. But now if you holding him up he is able to take little steps... of course that is with me holding him. But before he was not able to do this. He is eating more and is still the happy smiley baby we all know and love!! Now im just trying to think of what he may want to be for Halloween..... Any Ideas??? Im think monkey!!! Happy Holidays ya'll!!

October Check up

So last week Konner had his check up for the month of October. this time went really well and very smooth! We were there for a totally of 4 1/2 hours! He got his Pentamidine without any problems and slept the whole time through that. He also became a St. Baldricks honoree well we were there. The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives. They are the people that put on head shaving events and raise money. I have heard of them and I am glad that Konner was able to be apart of it. Hey maybe someday we can hold an event in the name of Konner! Konner's blood results were great, Higher then last months! We have yet to get his urine results, but I have a good feeling about that as well. As soon as I find the pictures and video that the people from St. Baldricks took i will gladly share with you all!
