Benefit. Canal Cleaning.

WOW!  Sorry it has been a little while since I have posted on the blog... I guess as soon as we got back from California we went straight into benefit mode and I was focused on that. We did make it back to Wisconsin. Brody's benefit this year was amazing. We had beautiful weather and lots of volunteers to help us have such a successful weekend. With all the fundraising we have done from day one, we can officially say that we have raised enough money to pay for Brody's surgeries!!  We are so thankful for everyone who has helped us with this effort in so many different ways. THANK YOU!


Today we traveled to Milwaukee to see Dr Kershner for an ear cleaning. He checked his canals and said they look wonderful. He didn't need to have them cleaned. I very much enjoy these appointments where he doesn't need them cleaned, as Brody is not a fan of the whole cleaning process.


Overall Brody is doing very well and his new ear looks amazing!  The swelling has gone down a lot and the coloring is start to look like a regular ear! :) The ear is still pretty sensitive and occasionally gets bumped and hurts him. It is still in the healing process and will take quite a while for him to get used to his new ear. It is something he hasn't had before and will take a little adjustment.


We had ordered some travel tumblers (hot-cold) for the benefit. We completely  sold out of these and ordered a second round. We do have these for sale still and are $7 each. We will have them for sale at the Montello Holiday Trail on November 23rd at Kendall Tire and Auto just south of town. I'm hoping to serve apple cider in the mugs too!


Thanks again to all how are following Brody's Story. Many Blessings to all of you and wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. We have some busy months coming up. Brody's birthday is November, Christmas and then we are back to California in January!
