The other day, I got some free chips in the mail. They were from Way Better Snacks and they were so good. First off, you don't have to use salsa or cheese on top of them because they already are topped with different flavors. I just loved them, especially the spicy kind!

KD's Boutique

So, my mom and I are starting a new project. We will be opening a small online boutique with everything you can think of! Clothes, shoes, jewelry, makeup, etc. Obviously the name KD is our initials! I'm not sure if I'll be making it on this page or making a new page but I will keep you posted. Much love! Katie

Mickey Button

Today I had my feeding tube replaced. My feeding tube, also known as a Mickey button, is used to feed me during the day and night. I still eat but I don't get enough calories by myself. Since I don't get enough calories, I am fed with ensure through my button so that I can get enough calories to maintain my weight.
Not much is going on today. I am on my way to dialysis. Dialysis really takes a lot out of ya. Unfortunately I need it to live. I hope by the summer I am strong enough to get a kidney transplant. My brother is getting tested to see if he'd be a match. I truly am lucky to have such a wonderful, caring and loving family. They are all so supportive.
Another thing I might be doing is writing a book. I've been thinking about it lately, I just don't know where I could get it published or if anyone would read it. They might!?
I'm also looking for an online job. I need a job so bad. I can't keep living on such a minimum income. I am more than capable of doing work online, I just need to find something to do. If you're reading this and you need help doing something that I can do online or over Skype, let me know. Or if you have ever had luck with an online company, I would love to hear about your experience, just leave me a comment!
Well, I'm signing off for today. May rearrange my blog a little bit! Love to you all and thanks for reading! Katie

Update 2/12

I have been in the hospital for a week now. I came in with a fever and some other things. One of the things that is going on is the tumors in my lungs are bigger than they were before. Tonight I am being admitted into the ICU to be given a chemo treatment and make sure I don't react negatively to it. Another issue is my weight and weight gain. I'm not gaining weight. My doctor is concerned that I am so malnourished that any chemo I get will just end up hurting me so we're at a catch 22. I'm still going to be getting the chemo tonight and hope I tolerate it. Nothing else has been going on lately just trying to stay ahead health wise which isn't working well on my part although I am getting more stable on my feet. I haven't had any falls in a couple of weeks. And I've still been cooking more (if you read my previous blogs)! Well that's all for now... Will update again soon! -Katie

Also, please if you want to support us you can buy a shirt!

Katie's Kitchen!

So lately I have been interested in cooking! I have had tons of fun making new things and having my family try them out. I honestly have never been fond of cooking until recently. I figured that I would start sharing some of my special creations here so you can try them out for yourself! I'll be posting my first creation (along with pictures and videos sometimes)!

For now I have another announcement. We are selling t-shirts again. Since getting my diagnosis of cancer and having to stay up in Pittsburgh longer and getting more medical bills, we are trying to raise money but not just donations. I'd rather offer something you can buy than just ask for money. So, if you want, please feel free to order a t-shirt! If not, I'd love for you to spread the word! You can order your t-shirt at:

Thank you so much! And be on the lookout for my new cooking posts!
