Kayli's surgeon's office called today to reschedule her Halo surgery, due to complications in the surgeon's personal life. Kayli will now be going inpatient on Tuesday August 6th instead of Tuesday July 30th. We have called the home care nursing agency to ask that Kayli's nurses be put back on her schedule for the week ahead.
We are taking one day at a time, and are leaning our our belief that "everything happens for a reason". Tonight, we as a family (minus our oldest son, Stephen) went to a baseball game! Niko and Kayli have never been to a baseball game, so we put it on their "bucket list" and set off tonight to mark it off the list! Before we went into the stadium, we were able to mark something else off their bucket lists... seeing a live band!!!
Tonight went on to be an A.M.A.Z.I.N.G night for our family!!! The general manager for the baseball team sent their mascot, Coop, to Kayli and Niko, for a personal visit! Then at the end of the game, Kayli, Jake, and Niko ran the bases with the other kiddos, AND Coop ran right up to Kayli and personally pushed her wheelchair around the bases!!! Coop spent so much time with Kayli tonight, and even gave Kayli and Niko an autographed ball!! Thank you Schaumburg Boomers, for the wonderful memories!!
