What day is it???

All the days are just flowing together now that I am not working and keeping track of days by which kids we have and the date by Lauryn constantly telling me I forgot to change the calender! LOL! Anyway, we have made it to Monday and it looks like it is going to be an ok week.

Ben had his chemo today so he is quite sick tonight and probably will be for a couple days. He is hoping to be good enough to hit the big Lancaster Fair on Wednesday before coming back down here to spend time with me but we will see. I told him to make sure he enjoys it, next year he will be pushing a quad stroller through the midway and that could be as dangerous as the wheel chair was at the Barton Fair.

He did find out today that they will NOT be doing radiation now. They have determined the mass is too small and the risks outweigh the benefits at this point so he will do the rest of his chemo and be done as long as the scan shows everything is gone.

Tomorrow my mom is coming down and we are going to spend the night in a motel. It will be good to see her, I am used to seeing her a lot so this week I have been missing her. Then Wednesday will be my appointment and the babies second biophysical profile testing. If all goes well we will be staying at my aunt and uncles another week! The longer the babies cook the better!


  1. Hi Kari. Chris and Sam have been keeping me posted. I wish you all the best! Emily

  2. I still can't believe how well things are going for you Kari. I'm glad to hear that Ben won't be doing radiation and I hope he starts feeling better after the chemo.

    Keep resting up and taking care of those babies.

  4. That's great news about Ben not having to have radiation. Looking forward to the day that you write that he's done with chemo. Glad that things are still going well with you and the babies. Enjoy this time of not knowing (or caring?) what day it is. LOL Blessings, Kathy

  5. Bedrest does become a blur. Glad to hear all is going well, and I hope you have one more week with your aunt and uncle. - tkeys


We've been FLOCKED!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
