*Update on Zac's condition - in a post from 11/20/2013 on Facebook...
Zac's PICC line came out while he was sleeping. Not sure how, but on our way to Mott's again:'(
Update to come♡
He is scheduled to have a port placement Tuesday next week Unfortunately that doesn't help now because he has to have 2 liters of fluids every night because the type of chemo he is having requires him being extra hydrated.
So the resident was just in. They did an X-ray to make sure the entire PICC line came out, & it did. The site where it came out is not having any substantial blood loss & appears to be closing/healing the way it should on its own. Considering he has been doing so much better with his fluid intake they are not going to put another PICC line in. We will have to measure his oral fluid intake & ensure he is intaking the minimum 2 liters a day, but they're comfortable with that as of now. This means we should be home soon♡ Thank you all for your prayers & concern:-)
Our Vendors and Crafters will be required to donate a designated minimum amount to set up at our event for these three weeks, as well as there will be a canister in the BANQUET ROOM and at the Belleville Coney Island cash register area for the family for the entire three weeks for restaurant patrons to donate. We would like to thank Eddie Enlam and his staff once again for being so good to us, and our community as a whole.
For the Nov. 12 event, we have the following participants scheduled to set up at our event. I will list the upcoming weeks as the time nears, just to make sure there are no changes ;) I will be adding a slide show of photos of products for these crafters... product from the vendors can be seen by going to any of the websites for that product line...

Our Nov. 26 event will have another full house of great participants! I will be unable to participate this week as I am having emergency surgery to repair a fracture in my Right Femur bone, a result most likely from the bone metastasis that I had been diagnosed with 3 1/2 years ago, but I am leaving the event in the capable hands of Susan Carpenter of AHOY, Crafts from home and the organizer and coordinater of the Ypsilanti Crafters Market.

This may be the final week of the TEAM ZAC fundraiser at our venue, but the efforts do not end here. Stay tuned to the TEAM ZAC Facebook page for any further events to help Zac N Heather. God Bless those of you that have come out to help this young family when they were facing the biggest scare of their lives... No parent should EVER have to feel alone when their child (whom also should not have to be put through this) is fighting a battle of any medical kind, especially one of a rare form of cancer! Your support has helped them feel the love and be able to continue on to the next step... Follow them on Facebook to share your prayers and let them keep feeling the love!
