Thank you all so much for you kind emails regarding Kirstin's injections. Unfortunately, the Botox did not work. :(

We have been very deflated...we really thought this treatment would work. She is now on a new medication but due to the side effects, she has to start slowly. She won't be up to the full dosage for about a month. :(

I'm not quite sure how she gets out of bed everyday, but she does. She is such a trooper. I've talked to her about her coping skills because she amazes me. (When I have a headache I don't like to get out of bed...and her pain is much worse!) She commented to me that pain or no pain, she has to live her life. :) (I told you she was a trooper!)

So, on to more exciting things....

We went to the LA County Fair on Sunday. Ken and I grew up going there as kids, so it's fun to experience it with our girls. I can't tell you how much we ate! Well, I guess I can...let's see...

~BBQ Corn on the Cob
~Fully Loaded Baked Potato
~BBQ Sandwich
~Strawberry Shortcake
~Caramel Apple Tower (with Whipped Cream!)
~Deep Fried Twinkie
~Bloomin' Onion

Hmmm...I think that's it. I'm sure the kids will remind me of more. What a great day. And hey, my kids can throw darts! Katie threw four and popped three balloons! Kirstin threw six and popped three balloons! Who knew!?!

All in all, we are hanging in there. One day at a time, one smile at a time. We'll kick this headache, it's just going to take time.

Thank you for your emails and your prayers. They mean the world to me.

Big hugs,
P.S. We are having ANOTHER giveaway at Inque! Check out our blog http://www.inqueboutique.typepad.com

Oh shoot I was hoping these would help :( I was having some horrible headaches and oddly enough I have found that a glass of caffine (cola) helped me. I wish I had some miracle cure for her. Headaches are the worst. Hang in there I bet you will find a solution soon!

I was so hoping that the Botox would help. She is amazing, and I admire her strength. She is in my prayers.

Just saw your blog for the first time and havent read all that you have tried to get rid of the headache, but just a note. I had a headache for over 45 days. We one day it was just gone. We don't know what got rid of it for sure, but just before it disappeared I had some dental work done and some pretty strong antibiotics. I had to go for 2 bouts of the antibiotics because of my dental work and the headache just disappeared. It was more then likely caused by my impacted wisdonm teeth. No one, even my dentist ever suspected it was ging to go away with dental work, it was just coincidental that I had it done at the same time. So in the end we dont know if the impacted teeth were the problem of if there was some undetected inflamation or infection somwhere at the antibiotics for my teeth happened to get rid of also. I hope you find a solution soon!! I do know the feeling and it just so drags you down.
