Homecoming 2008

Someone asked me just the other day what Kaysha's plans are after high school.
While there is alot she wants to accomplish in her lifetime, the one thing that you can be sure of is a dream she's had for many years.

Ever since Kody had his crainiotomy almost four years ago {actually 4 years on the 25th of this month}, she watched his struggle to regain just about everything, from learning to walking and, talking.
It was right about at that time when she confided in me that she really wanted to become a teacher for the children with brain trauma. Whether that trauma came from birth, an accident or in our case, childhood cancer.

If you could see how she patiently helps Bear with his homework, you'd understand why I want this so much for her. Because she's a natural, she's gifted, she's incredibly talented, she's patient and maternal and one day I know that she will make one heck of a teacher.

Until then, she's a teen..a teen with a a dream that I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure her that her dream becomes a reality for her.



Bear had a small rough start today, which I think may be related to his body still trying to rid itself of morphine. But, as Bear's go..he worked through it and by afternoon was feeling much better.
It looks like he'll be able to return to school on Wednesday. He's still on half day hospital homebound but we're hoping that by Christmas vacation he'll be feeling good enough to stay all day.
I really think this new shunt is making a huge difference in his life..you can just look at him and see a brand new healthy Kody Bear.

He did let me snap a few pictures today. I'll work on them tonight and upload them probably tomorrow sometime.

I've got to get back to work this week also. I may just as well go back on Wednesday also, although, thankfully, the hats are going great. Bless the hearts of all the hat lovers of the world, they are keeping me happily busy, I love it!!

Welp, I better get going. The boys are hankering dessert and I have got to get the hellians in their beds to watch their Monday Night Raw {wrestling}, the one show I let them stay up late to watch.

Have a great night everyone!!!!

PS. Kody's magazine article should be here by tomorrow. :0)

So glad to hear that Kody's feeling better! I trust that every day he'll get stronger and stronger.

Kaysha, you look great in your Homecoming dress. I LOVE your dream of helping children like your brother. I will keep my fingers crossed that this dream becomes a reality!!!!

Love,
