Fairy Tale Town
Today we went to Fairy Tale Town with our Hearts of Hope support group and had a great time! We had 16 families (I think), which is the largest turnout we've had so far. Fairy Tale Town donated the passes to our group and gave us a discount on the lunches that HOH provided for everyone. The kids had lots of fun playing, climbing and sliding. And there was media coverage which is great for getting the word out to other families.
Here is a link to my interview with KFBK, a local news radio station. I actually haven't heard it yet, but I hear it was a good piece.
There was also a short story on the Channel 10 news at 5:00.
The most exciting part for me was watching Drew run around and climb the stairs by himself, without having to stop because he was breathing so heavy. This is still new and amazing to me since his last surgery. He went up the Owl slide 8 times in a row without getting tired! And he didn't spend any time in the stroller the whole time we were there. I am so grateful that his surgery was such a success!
