Wyatt's "Foot loose" Party

We started the night off at Dinner in downtown LA at Pete's Cafe

At the Conga Room at LA Live

Love my handsome man

love these girls.

just dance!

Wyatt's last request before he had his surgery was to go dancing. I'm not gonna lie...part of the reason why I fell in love with Wyatt was the fact that he was such a good dancer. So my friends planned this night just for Wyatt. Most of us met at our house and we carpooled down to Pete's cafe and had a yummy dinner and then drove on over to LA Live so we could go dance the night away at the Conga Room. We all had a blast and will never forget this fun memorable night. Wyatt has such great friends who are supporting him ever step of the way!

Surgery date

On Tuesday we met with Dr. Menedez again for another appointment to go over all of Wyatt's options one last time and to get our last few questions answered. 

The appointment was at 10:15 and we were there right on time. Wyatt checked in and as he was checking in they told us that Navy wasn't allowed on the lower level where all the appointments were due to all the chemo and radiation going on. Since we were all the way in Beverly Hills I had no idea what to do with her. I thought Wyatt would just go to the appointment and I'd take Navy around LA and wait for Wyatt to be finished. But I really wanted to be there with Wyatt to show him my love and support. So I thought of two of my friends who live on the west side and gave them a call. Luckily one of them answered and willingly drove up to the hospital to get Navy and watch her until we were finished. Thank you so much Kate!! You saved our day!

While I was waiting for Kate, Wyatt was sent to X-ray to get another chest X-ray to be sure the cancer hasn't spread to his lungs. Then he was sent to the waiting area where I later met up with him waiting to be called back to be seen by Dr. Menedez. We didn't get called back into the room until about 12:15 and then the doctor didn't even come in until 1:30. They are still trying to get in the swing of things at the new hospital and all his patients got pushed back since his morning surgery was pushed back. He and all of his staff apologized over and over. It was a LONG depressing day! 

Dr. Menedez came in and answered all of our questions. He stated to us again that if we want the lowest reoccurrence rate that we should go with amputation. With out hesitation Wyatt said to him, "Then lets do it." I asked him about misdiagnosis and he asked that I bring in the pathology report from Kaiser and hand deliver it the next day. 

Surgery for amputation is scheduled on Tuesday September 25 at 8:30 am in Beverly Hills at Cedars Sinai Hospital. The days are going way too fast and as this day approches my stomach is in knots. I feel so bad for Wyatt and wish I could take this all away. No one should have to ever experience this. 

I am still so impressed with Wyatt and his positive attitude about the whole situation. He has been such a trooper and hasn't let this get him down one bit. I pray the spirit will be with him and he may be comforted. 

Thanks again to everyone who has gone out of their way to help our family during this difficult time. Everyone who has watched our children, took them to and from school, had play dates, brought us dinner, called or text to see how we are doing, cards, messages and so much more! Nothing you have done has gone un noticed! Thank you thank you! We don't know what we would do with out all of you. We feel so blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful friends, family and ward members. We love you all!
