Wednesday May 16th, Party Time Again!

Radiation was once again first thing and Ingram did well again.  I think we're really onto something with him sitting in my lap while everything is being done.  He really likes the sticker book we work on each time; and of course what kid doesn't like playing on their parents phone??  He has decided though for the third day in a row that he doesn't need to sleep off the "sleepy medicine" and I'm back in recovery with him quicker each day and that's fine with me too!

Target put on a "Mad Hatter Tea Party" for all the patients at St. Jude today and we went over there once Ingram was steady enough after the sedation wore off.  Once we were there, he had a blast and the Target employees were wonderful!  Ingram (and all the other patients) got a t-shirt, a book, a gift bag, and a gift card; plus they had food, games, and crafts for everyone to do.  I started crying the minute we walked in as the Target employees started handing us stuff.  I'm still getting used to the generosity of complete strangers (and friends alike) that I get overcome with gratitude quite often now.

On our way home, Ingram wanted to stop by Daddy's office to show him his face (he got it painted with spiderman and a baseball) and also wanted to take Daddy a cookie.  He got a bag of three cookies from the cafeteria before we left; one for his Daddy and the other two for his girls.  He's just the most thoughtful little man always wanting to get something for others!  So we took Daddy a little lunch too...I think it was almost 2pm when we finally got to his parking lot.

Needless to say, Ingram had a blast today at St. Jude and then we came home had a package waiting from a friend with marshmallow guns.  You'll have to check out the pictures below to see what I'm talking about!  As if that wasn't enough, two more families stopped by today and we had so much fun visiting with them too.  I feel like we truly are the luckiest family in the world to be surrounded by so many friends during this time.  I just wish I could reach out and hug all of you to thank you so much for loving us during this time!

I Wish Y'all Were Here To Get You're Own Spiderman Paint!


And She's Down!
