Upcoming Events

We are excited to be able to represent our wonderful hospital, Children's Medical Center, in a few upcoming events.
First, this weekend Sarah will be one of ten children whose stories will be told as they ride a float at the Children's Holiday Parade in Dallas on Dec. 4th. The parade starts at 10am and will be on Channel 8 WFAA in the Dallas area. The parade is free and you can also buy tickets for bleacher seating. Find more details at . An American Idol winner and now recording artist will be a part of the parade with Sarah and the other kids. Since we have lived in China for the past few years, Sarah doesn't know what American Idol is much less who this guy is. So we have caught her up a bit (not too much though) on such things before the parade:)
Second, next weekend is the Radiothon at Children's Medical Center Downtown in Dallas. Our family will be interviewed on the radio as part of this event on Thursday, Dec. 9th sometime between 11:30am and 1pm. You can listen on the radio at 103.7 Lite FM or online at .
Pray that we all stay healthy and rested so we can enjoy these wonderful opportunities.

Our Disney Trip!

Disney, Here We Come

Jay arrived with minimal jet lag even considering the Fall Back time change making the time difference not 13 but now 14 hours between the US and Hong Kong!
We are busy trying to get packed and organized for Sarah's Make A Wish trip to Disney. We leave tomorrow, so we thought it was time to buy a Disney guide book to get familiar with the place as it has changed since either Jay and I were there back in the 80s and early 90s. The books weighs 15 pounds. We should have bought it a month ago. I'm trying to speed read but don't think I will complete it all. Any advice from avid Disney World fans?
Being pregnant, I can't ride any simulators (so the book says), so that cuts the guesswork of Epcot down quite a bit (unless any of you can verify that you went on them pregnant and it turned out just fine:)
I just pray we don't have meltdowns and raised voices and whining - and just that will make it a successful trip.
Once we get back... and recover, we will post lots of fun Disney pictures!
We are so thankful for this time to not focus on cancer treatments and clinic visits and such and to just do something really fun. It has been awhile.
