Good morning everyone!

Well I just got my trip schedule and one week from now I will be happily asleep on the road to being all better! I am actually excited for it! I am excited to get this journey over with! I have so many people who love me and are praying for me, how could I be scared? We fly in Wednesday afternoon and get to try to be normal Wednesday night and then Thursday I get to spend all day with my team of doctors as they get to know my beautiful brain better! Friday I am lucky enough to have surgery in the morning so I do not have to wait all day. I just get to wake up and go back to sleep! I think I get to spend a few days in the ICU and then they transfer me over to the normal hospital where I will continue to heal and turn back into tumor-less Tara!

Thank you so much for everything! I swear my wedding dress is not going to fit if I keep eating everything that comes to our door. I used to use it for justification because I have to eat with my meds but the real truth is it is just so good and I cannot get enough of it! Those sweet rolls...GONE, the whole pan of bread...GONE! Josh is keeping the candy bars captive and going to take them with us so he can have munchies while he waits for surgery to be over. Be assured...they too will be GONE! My sunshine box has filled to the top and my momma got me another one to put all my cards in. Thank all of you for your thoughtfulness. It has really taught me more about how I want to live my future life. I want to be more like all of you!

This entry is going to be short and sweet. just know that the Schlappi family is at peace and we are all able to smile and laugh! We have enjoyed this time getting to know each other better. Trials do bond a family really well. There is a lot of good that has come from this whole experience. I am sure Chol is ready for me to sleep in my own bed again though. I think I whacked her in the face like 10 times last night but how can you get mad at a girl with a tumor?? :) She just pushes me over and puts my hands under my covers and helps me go back to sleep! She really is an angel. We love you all so much and we are having a much better Friday than last! Keep a smile on

I believe

Tara Lynn

"Too Happy" Schlappi,

What an honor and a privilege to be able to spend time visiting with you today. You lifted my heart with your amazing outlook and spirit. You are one of a kind and I knew that back in sixth grade. Ok, so I meant to ask you today. Do you remember the Wave? : ) Remember your response? No B's from Mr. T. You always found a way. You are the BEST Tara. I am so proud of all you have accomplished and become. Big Hug! Let me know what you need.

WOW WOW WOW... I just found your blog. I am praying for you.

you will do great.

my pap had a brain tumor... so I understand what you are going through. I remember how he was before surgery... let me just say... not as calm as you.

You are so strong, and an inspiration. You are in my prayers.

Sparky, You sound greatly inspired and up-beat, but if there does come a time when you are not so up-beat don't hesitate to call me. I can be a really great listner if that is what you need. I wish I could do sooo much more for you! We think of you every day at work. We miss your goofiness. : ) I told Brice that he is my home child and you are my work child. My family will be thinking of you and praying for you and your family this week as you get started on your treck. Brice wants me to tell you that he is still waiting to go to the Zoo. : ). Keep us posted. Love ya, Chickie!!! <<>>
