I have attached a pdf with a gofundme poster and the telegram article attached. Thanks so much for the everyones support and willingness to share our story.
Delores and I ventured out into Scottdale’s today to get groceries. Delores drove the two of us to a couple grocery stores to find some food for the week. Delorse was a great help today and was able to put together a wonderful evening meal. Later in the evening we got a facetime call from the kidos. Marsae (5) and Azlynn (4) were calling from their Aunt Katy and Uncle Logan’s house. Who doesn’t love a sleep over? It was great to see their faces and hear their voices. The girls shared with Caitlyn and I, every single thing from their day and they loved to be specific; “First we woke up.” “Oh wait, we always wake up first.” They had to show us their new Glowing Mickey Mouse looking head bands that Grandma Hanneman sent them! “Thanks Granny Hanny!” By that time it was pretty late, so we blow kisses and said our good nights. Every day there are ups and downs ever day but the key is finding those ups and grabbing onto the good moments and cherishing them. I am thankful that today to have so many wonderful charing people in my life.
In the middle of December I sent a brief update on medical issues that has affected the Hanneman family. After months of attempting to treat Caitlyn’s symptoms with no positive affect. We were referred to a gastroenterologist in mid December. The consult went well and the doctor ordered a few tests that weren’t previously ordered. These tests were scheduled for the week of Christmas. I was able to get off work for the week and brought the kids up to Kansas City for the week of Christmas. We have stayed with Caitlyn’s sister in Kansas City and have been able to spend time with family between hospital visits.
We did get back some results from one of the tests. The results of the test prompted our specialist to refer us an Endocrinologist. We are hoping for a quick appointment and follow-up after this week’s tests.
We thank all of friends and family who have reached out to help us. The support and love you have shown us is truly inspirational.
