ALL DONE... Day 8

Our last day is Costa Rica was great! This trip was amazing. Makenzie did better then I could have ever wished for! She slept well and was in good spirits the entire week!

Makenzie and Joey both dressed in crazy t-shirts that read "Forget the College fund, start saving for my THERAPY"

Today we started out with ABM. Makenzie did very well holding her shaker and trying to bring it to her mouth while Tayna worked with her lower body. The idea was to get Makenzie to seperate her arms from her legs and man did she perform. She was so happy and a lot less flexed!

Then it was time for the last injection of stem cells. Once again Makenzie was none too happy about the affair. It only got worse when they started to take the IV cathader out. They started by taking the tagaderm off of her skin....oh boy! She held her breath once for a good long while, causing her whole face to turn blue, so we stopped and let her catch her breath but........there was no vomit! AMAZING! When all was said and done I am sure she is happy to have that thing out of her arm. There was a pretty nastey mark under where the cathader sat as well and seems a bit sore and bothersome still.

Poor Girl!

Then it was Joey's turn. He had his IV in the foot and because he moves his legs so much they put a short blue cast on him to keep him from kicking the IV out. Well there was no cast saw at the clinic so we took another scenic drive back to the hospital ER to get it taken off.

The ICM doctor met us there, we walked right into the ER. Makenzie and I waited outside and they just went back cut it off and where done. Julie and I laughed because there is NO way that would happen in the states! It would be like taking your family doctor to the ER asking to use their equipment and then taking off! Ha... yeah right!

Then it was out to lunch, more ABM, a bit of hanging out, and then to dinner....lol! I feel like all we have done for the last week is eat and sleep!

We are all packed up and ready to head to the airport first thing in the morning! I can't wait to get home to see my boys!! As always the see ya laters will be hard. Please pray for safe travels!

So glad the trip has gone so well for Makenzie! Have you all in prayer that the stem cells will do their job! Love, Love, Love Joey's shirts! Do you know where his mom gets them from?
