Lola’s Bucket List Meets Flat Lola

As many of you know, Lola and I did not make it to NYC last week. Upon landing in Salt Lake City on a layover, she asked if we could go home. Instead of flying home, we decided to fly to Oakland instead and our NP picked us up from the airport. I had already called the hospital while in SLC so she was a direct admit when we arrived (thank you Connie for picking us up).

The difference between Wednesday and Thursday was like night and day. Changes to her pain and nausea medication are still going on, but we are happy that things are moving forward and she is, for the most part, without either.

So, in honor of Lola and #LolasBucketList, we’d like to invite you to participate and help her cross things off of her list! Some have been creative and printed out pics of her (Flat Lola) while they are doing things on her list. Some have held up signs with our hashtags on them (#LoveLikeLola #LolasBucketList #FlatLola).

If you post these pics on social networks (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook), please use the hashtags above and also tag myself and Lola in the pics so that we see them =)

Here are some pics of Flat Lola and her shenanigans in NYC and Orlando!!

Lola’s Bucket List Has Been Updated!

Please check out Lola’s bucket list – it’s been updated!

Our trip to LA was awesome! We arrived home yesterday, cutting the trip down by one day. We will be doing the same for our trip to NY, as Lola’s pain and nausea has been extremely difficult to manage. We are so thankful for TrinityKids Care hospice in LA/Orange County for making the necessary changes to her medications to make her trip a little easier.

I plan to make separate “gallery” pages to include all of our pics, especially the ones that Lola has been taking with her camera. I must say that she is a budding professional photographer! She has a creative eye for sure.

One thing that is not pictured is the psychic reading Lola had on Friday. It was amazingly profound and very personal. She spoke to Lola about her past lives, her journey in the physical world now and three of Lola’s loved ones came through to speak to her. IF she chooses to share details, I’ll let her write the blog post. Needless to say, it was something that both her and I needed in the middle of all this chaos. Thank you Erin for this.

I’d like to personally thank the following people who made our trip to LA so special. We love you all so much ❤

Ryan Coffelt – meeting Dan Smith was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!

Kelsey Doonan – thank you for making my beautiful princess a QUEEN.

Natashia Tomek – the clothes and shoes are “to die for”!

Dan Smith – your amazing creativity shows in both your tats and your music. Thank you for taking the time to meet Lola and give her your undivided attention. The poster is already hanging up!

Stacey Owens – without you, this trip would not have been possible. Thank you for letting Lola drive your jeep and for the fancy hotel room at The Luxe. We felt like royalty ❤

Marz T and Lisa Le – just the drive over from the hotel was ONE OF A KIND! We just love being around y’all. Your sense of humor is contagious! Thanks for the laughs!!

Kerri Toepfer – not only was the massage on the beach UHmazing, but your energy was infectious. We are so thankful that we got to meet you and hang out!

Jason and Erica Mlot – I know we didn’t get to do what we had planned, but we are so grateful that y’all came up on Friday and had dinner. The conversation was hilarious at times, but who doesn’t love a belly laugh!

Tamara Young and Marti Davis – what can I say? You opened your home to Lola and I and made us feel like family. I will forever cherish the sounds of laughter coming from the girls room and the fun we had in “the OC” =) We love you and hope to see you soon! Oh, and Marti – I’ll be sending you summor’ of Minnie’s SHIT PIE!!! xoxoxo

We are OFF to NYC on Wednesday to visit more of our Stupid Cancer friends (Kenny or John, you gonna let Lola throw a drink in your face? =p) stay tuned for more of our adventures #LolasBucketList

xoxo

Get a Picture of the Hollywood Sign

When we visited Hollywood on Thursday it was cloudy/overcast. Our original plan was to go up to Griffith Observatory, but they were closed. Lola took this with her iPhone through the telescope. We improvised =)

If you look closely you can see the HW sign in the distance behind us

This Is The Life

Thank you Stacey Owens for getting us an amazing room at the Luxe on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. We all felt like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.

She also had the guts to let Lola drive her jeep!!!! Marti and I got out to “film” but secretly bc we were afraid of Lola driving!!!

Update 07.08.13

Lola update: Lola has been feeling nauseous with severe back pain the last 24 hours. She has little to no appetite as well. I am not sure if the breakthrough morphine has caused this nausea/appetite loss or not. I ended up giving her an anti-emetic suppository last night as she couldn’t seem to keep anything down. She has also had difficulty breathing (more taking a deep breath) so she has been on the O2 concentrator since early yesterday. We will be meeting with our hospice nurse, the doctor and the NP today here at home to go over some of this stuff as well as a port flush. We are scheduled to fly down to LA tomorrow so I am praying that she wakes up feeling better today. I know it would just break her heart if she couldn’t make these scheduled trips this month and I am not sure I could handle that right now.

As many of you know, one of ‎#LolasBucketList items is to meet Talia Castellano, Angels for Talia. Detailed recent posts from her family say that she is mostly sleeping and really only waking to go to the restroom. She too has been dealing with a lot of pain and nausea. This is all very upsetting to Lola for many obvious reasons. Lola has followed Talia for almost two years now and she has been such an inspiration to Lola in her own journey.

Please lift up Talia and Lola in your prayers today. Both of these girls aspire to inspire and they have done that and so much more in their short time hear on Earth.
