Quick Update

Sorry it has been so long since I posted last. Things have been very busy as you can probably all imagine. Plus, morning sickness has arrived. And I am exhausted these days....I can barely pry myself out of bed! Poor Mylee just wants her MaMa to play with her....

The fundraiser was a success in my mind. Due to gas prices and the fact that it was close to 114 degress on Saturday, the turn out ended up being approx. 300 people at the races. Grand total raised: $2,000.

Thank you to all who participated in the event, who helped us at the races, and of course those who have supported us throughout this journey. Special Thanks (in case they are reading the blogs) to "Playing God"...Sorry we were unable to party with you in the pits. Mylee fell asleep 5 minutes before the last race....and since I am pregnant too we decided to take ourselves home to rest...Again, Thank you all who helped out with this event and who came out to have fun and watch the races!!

I will try to post pictures later this weekend of the festivities. This weekend will be low key for us. We are dog sitting for our best friends, Brewser always has a blast when he comes to play with Bobby and Max. Mylee loves having another dog around too!

Hope everyone is doing well! I will post again soon....

We enjoyed our play date with Weidow twins, Reese and Jack are always fun to have around and hang out with! We hope to see them again real soon... Mylee and twins played together very nicely and I believe will grow up becoming the best of friends!

Mylee has also become a great mommy to her special baby from Grandma and Grandpa Eaton. She loves to cuddle, give hugs and kisses, and to walk her baby in her baby's stroller across the great room floor. She is actually starting to play with this baby almost on a regular basis. Mylee was cuddling with her during the evenings when she slept and at nap times during the day. We decided to give up this baby doll and play with her during the day instead. We of course had to exchange her with a new baby doll so that Mylee won't be lonely while she sleeps. She is such a great mommy!!

Speaking of mommy's, Mylee's mommy is going to have a baby too!! That's right we are PREGNANT!! Mylee is going to be such a great big sister, just like she is a great mommy to her baby dolls. We are still very early, in fact 5 weeks tomorrow. Please keep us in your prayers and hope we continue with a happy, healthy fetus...We are very excited and blessed!!

We are so busy just like everyone else, we are now counting down to Mylee's fundraiser. Four days and counting. The big event kicks off at 5pm on Saturday. We are finishing up the touches on the goodies we are putting together. Raffle tickets are being sold to hopeful winners from all over the valley. Thank you to daddy who is helping with sales at his office downtown and to his wonderful employees who helping too! We are blessed to have so many people who are so supportive in our lives. Your eagerness to help and encouraging words are what get us through our journey and of course our little princess who has been a warrior throughout this whole ordeal! Mylee you are our warrior princess and we want you to continue with your beautiful smiles. We are so blessed and honored to have become your mommy and daddy!

We hope everyone continues to have a safe week ahead. We love you all and Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your love and support! May we all live PAIN FREE!

First weekend of June

Summer is here! At it is hot in the valley of the Sun! We all enjoyed a relaxing weekend with just the three of us...Daddy spent a lot of time with Mylee this weekend so that I could have a very relaxing weekend.

Daddy played with Mylee and took her to the grocery stores, we were in desperate need for groceries! We rented a several pay per view movies on Friday night and on Saturday! It was a lot of fun just hanging out and watching the television! On Sunday, Mylee and daddy went swimming. They didn't stay out there for too long because it was a scorcher and Mylee likes to put her face in the water in which she cannot. She has already somehow aspirated in the past few weeks which had possibly caused another pneumonia. We are watching her carefully and have started our regiment of breathing treatments several times a day.

Our work week ahead is somewhat steady. Today we have a day off and we took Mylee to preschool for a little over and hour. I picked her up and her nose was oozing with yuckies. I will suction her later. I gave her a bolus feed (breakfast) and she is now napping. This evening we are heading out to Max's Sports grill to sale early tickets for Mylee's fundraiser. The radio broadcast will be live again, so for those who are interested I am sure they will have a segment regarding Mylee's event! Remember the races will start a 7pm on June 21st. The information regarding the event is to the right of her blog, check it out if you wish! Please remember I am putting together "Faces of Chiari" for those of you who have not already sent me your pictures, please email me at: I am hoping to finish this project by the end of this coming weekend.

The rest of the week is filled with therapy sessions and hopefully a little relaxation. Mylee will go back to preschool tomorrow and Thursday, pending how she is feeling and if she has no fever. Please keep your fingers crossed for us that she maintains her breathing as it is today and does not get worse. Otherwise, we head back to the ER (we don't go to the Pediatrician anymore because more than likely he would send us to the ER anyway). We have come to trust our judgement and 95% of the time her lungs are filled.

Have a fantastic week and we will post again soon!

Lots of love,
Eaton family
