Donations-- and a quick update!

Alexis is almost 2 years post op total colectomy and 1 year 7 months (to the day!) post op jpouch takedown. Despite the anal stenosis, several rounds of pouchitis, and emergency surgery... things are going well. I was so scared and overwhelmed during my last post that I immediately just regretted everything I ever put Alexis through. Somehow, we all prevailed, and believe the outcome to date was (for the most part) worth the wild ride. She is doing great currently! She is finishing up her 1st grade year (and is excelling at it! Top of her class, despite all of the days she missed!) and she is finally well enough to learn how to ride her bike WITHOUT training wheels. A little late to the game, but I know she will get it in no time!

We are back in gear raising money for the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America! Currently, TEAM ALEXIS, has THREE ways you can help us out!

You can donate to our team page directly here!!!

Or you can place an order for a Bravelet right here! Cute purple colored bracelets. Each bracelet yields a $10 donation!

You can also go for lunch or dinner May 16th-May 18th at Uno Pizzeria & Grill in Pickerington on 256. A portion of your total will be donated to Team Alexis. We will have a booth set up right in front with a display of Alexis-- also we will have a ton of flyers in hopes random patrons will grab one and increase sales even more! Make sure you submit the "dough ticket" (flyer) to your server, so your meal will count!! Spread the word!!

Alexis' wish trip to Disney has been postponed until around the end of the year sometime. She is looking forward to it more than anything, and we cannot wait until it is our turn to take off. This girl deserves the world handed to her on a platter, but to a 7 year old girl-- this trip and everything the foundation is planning for her is a pretty close second! I just hope the next few months go by fairly quickly for us (specially since we are selling our home!)

so, until next time...:)

Wacky Day at school!
