We got back from Koen's wish trip to Disney on Tuesday night. It was a ton of fun but we were all so tired and ready to be home. They gave us a 3-day pass for 4 Disney parks, a day pass for Sea World and a 2-day pass for Universal Studios. We make it to 3 or the 4 Disney parks, one day to Sea World and because we were all amusement parked out we took one day and went to the beach. You could really tell Koen was really enjoying himself. He truly is one amazing kids. During the week he got a blister on both feet and sunburn on his feet and lower back (where we missed with sunscreen) and this kid never complained once. You can tell he's so much tougher these days then he was before cancer. I guess he's already been to hell and back so a blister or sunburn is no big deal to him. He is just doing well these days! Loving life and feeling good again! He has his 3 month check up on this Monday. He'll have 3 appointments in one morning. First hearing at 8:30, praying to see recovered hearing results. Then at 9:30 an ultasound of his tummy. Then up to see his docs at 11:00. He's actually excited about going back I think and looking forward to seeing everyone. Please say a prayer on Monday that Koen will remain healed and free of cancer. Also to handle 3 appointments well! If you would like to see pictures of our trip, please feel free to check out our family blog.
Thanks for still caring and taking the time to check up on him! Hope you all have a wonderful April! ~Lindsay
