Thank you all so much for you kind emails regarding Kirstin's injections. Unfortunately, the Botox did not work. :(

We have been very deflated...we really thought this treatment would work. She is now on a new medication but due to the side effects, she has to start slowly. She won't be up to the full dosage for about a month. :(

I'm not quite sure how she gets out of bed everyday, but she does. She is such a trooper. I've talked to her about her coping skills because she amazes me. (When I have a headache I don't like to get out of bed...and her pain is much worse!) She commented to me that pain or no pain, she has to live her life. :) (I told you she was a trooper!)

So, on to more exciting things....

We went to the LA County Fair on Sunday. Ken and I grew up going there as kids, so it's fun to experience it with our girls. I can't tell you how much we ate! Well, I guess I can...let's see...

~BBQ Corn on the Cob
~Fully Loaded Baked Potato
~BBQ Sandwich
~Strawberry Shortcake
~Caramel Apple Tower (with Whipped Cream!)
~Deep Fried Twinkie
~Bloomin' Onion

Hmmm...I think that's it. I'm sure the kids will remind me of more. What a great day. And hey, my kids can throw darts! Katie threw four and popped three balloons! Kirstin threw six and popped three balloons! Who knew!?!

All in all, we are hanging in there. One day at a time, one smile at a time. We'll kick this headache, it's just going to take time.

Thank you for your emails and your prayers. They mean the world to me.

Big hugs,
