In the vlog I’m sharing today, we went to a sit-down restaurant, which is something we haven’t done since David’s Make-A-Wish trip in September of 2014. Then later that day, we stopped at Target to check out the Easter clearance. 🙂
Okay, so we tackled Chuck E. Cheese in this week’s family vlog.
I explain the reason why we were going to Chuck E. Cheese in the video, but I’ll share a little bit more of the story here. 🙂
First, David is now 100% free of all medications. Praise the Lord! He is no longer taking that gross, glue-smelling, hair-growth-inducing immune suppression medication, Cyclosporine. He started taking that drug in October of 2013, and he’s finally off of it.
It was weird for David to no longer have to force down that med, and he told me he thought he’d always have to take it. He never thought he’d be free of it, but, by God’s grace, he is. This makes me cry tears of joy!
Because David’s immune system is no longer being suppressed by drugs, we feel more comfortable about going out in public, and we’re planning to start spending a little more time out of the house. We’re not going to go crazy or anything, but we don’t feel like we need to stay home as much as we have the last year and a half.
We also chose to go to Chuck E. Cheese because when David was in the hospital for his bone marrow transplant in December of 2013, my mom’s nursing friends all got together and blessed us with cards and a Chuck E. Cheese gift card.
When I saw the gift card, I was very thankful, but I knew that we wouldn’t be able to use it for a loooooonnnnngggg time. 😉
Fast forward to March of 2015, and Ruben and I finally felt like it was safe to take David into our local Chuck E. Cheese.
And we had a great time!
I’m planning on filming another vlog on either Friday or Sunday of this week, and I’ll post it here when I can.
I hope you all have a very Happy Easter! 🙂
I overcame my fear of vlogging today. Although, I do think you can hear a little uncertainty in my voice. 😉
But even so, I made it through one video and found out that it was easier than I thought it would be. I do use the word “um” quite a lot, though. And I didn’t realize that until I started watching the videos. I’m going to work on not using that word so much in the next video.
There’s that, and when I was watching the videos at home, I realized that Elisabeth’s car seat strap wasn’t totally right. She likes to adjust her own straps so that she’s comfortable, but sometimes she overdoes it.
By the way, we’ve decided to name these video blogs our “Blessed Seven” vlogs. We chose this name because there are seven of us, and we’re very blessed. 🙂
We thought about naming it “Our Happy Seven” but felt that “Blessed Seven” was more true to life.
