Quick Update!

Things are crazy around here...we had a wonderful weekend. Kamden had 2 friends spend the night on Friday (and this is what we woke up to)

Then Saturday we spent the day at my friend Theresa's house for a BBQ. It was our second annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure after-party! This year it was much different, as our friend Carmen is in remission. Last year, she had just been diagnosed, and this year we had a celebration of her victory :) Kendall enjoyed being outside, but was ready to head home after a couple hours. Justin, Kamden and Kendall headed home and I was able to stay and play for a while!! Needless to say, I was recovering a bit yesterday.

Tomorrow Kendall turns two officially! We are celebrating the day by spending the entire day at Cooks for appointments. We have GI at 11, then Endo at 2. Another fun day! Too bad they had to fall on her birthday...

We have switched nursing agencies, and I couldn't be happier with the decision. It was a bit stressful the past few weeks making sure everything would line up and Kendall wouldn't go without her two nurses. Thankfully, it has all worked out. Two of my friends from high school started Vivicare, and I am so impressed with the level of compassion and professionalism they've shown. ALL people dealing with children with special needs should take a page out of their book. Unfortunately, I found out the hard way, sometimes people care more about advancing their careers rather than taking care of people. A shame, really...but thankfully the stars have aligned and Kendall will be getting the same great care, and I will keep my sanity. It was definitely the best decision for my family :)

And finally, barring any unforeseen issues in the next 3 days...I'M GOING TO SEE TRAIN ON FRIDAY!!! Yep. My sister and I are making another road trip to see our friends Pat, Scott, Jimmy, and Hector at Winstar Casino on Friday night. We're spending the night in Oklahoma and returning on Saturday. I'm sure I don't have to explain how excited I am! If you read my blog back in November, you already know we're a bit obsessed! Lookout Oklahoma, the O'Rourke sisters are on their way :)
