Bingo For Childhood Cancer

Our Weekend did not start out so great when I got a call from the school on Friday that David had a fever:( Hope and I went to get him from school and we all three spent the afternoon in bed watching a movie and snuggling.  He just was not himself Friday evening or Saturday morning. 

Sadly now that we are living our post-chemo life, every little headache and fever send me into a panic.  I always worry when he is not acting life himself (stubborn, lethargic, whiny) that he is relapsing.  I know it is totally irrational, but I cannot help it. 

We were suppose to go to Ashley's brother's wedding about 45 minutes from here, but David was not himself.  We love Adam and Amber and we wish them years and years of happiness and love. 

Saturday night we did get to go to a local event that raised money for childhood cancer.  A local family, The Shuler's lost their little baby girl to cancer several years ago and they still honor her memory by hosting several events a year to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer. 

Last night they had a Bingo event and 4/5 of our family went and we had such fun!  Kyle was at dinner and movie with his travel baseball team.  I hate to brag, but the Robinson girls both won a game of Bingo! Hope won a goodie bag and I won a picnic tote. 
Lynn was there with Caroline and Tommy and it was fun to catch up with them.  David and Caroline used our iphones and texted back and forth.  It was so hilarious and cute. 
Hope was good with that bingo dabber and she was so embarrassed when she won!  She really hates to be the center of attention.  We really had a great time playing bingo for a great cause. 
Sunday Mike and Kyle played in a benefit cornhole tournament to help raise money for a school employee whose daughter needs lots of medical care.  Our community is absolutely wonderful about rallying around those that have a loved one going through something out of the ordinary.  We were on the receiving end of all this love and support last year and we know how amazing it feels to know your community is behind you.
We are hoping that David is over whatever little ailment that caused the low grade fever Friday and him not being himself this weekend.  He and I will head solo to UVA this Wednesday not only for his monthly oncology visit but we will also meet with the kidney doctor as well.  Mike cannot go this time and my traveling partner Pops is at the beach.  Thankfully Hope can spend the day in Radford with GG and my grandmother so she will not have to make that long trip down the interstate.  We covet your prayers for this UVA visit.  We are really curious to see what the kidney doctor has to say about David's little kidney:)
Happy Monday!!  Is it summer break yet????
